I just sent my email off ... but I wanted to include some validation too... I finally finished my last stability test with BOINC. Solid at 3.65Ghz http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=829344

TedKelly, great job

I think you may be able to squeeze a bit more out of that processor. Try bringing down the memory frequency so that it's below it's stock speed (400Mhz). Having the memory the way it is now (overclocked) may cause some stability issues with your cpu OC. Have you performed testing with Prime95/OCCT? Did you have to add any NB voltage for the 260 reference clock speed?

Good luck

Hello. Im pretty new at this whole overclocking deal.. I just finished overclocking my system and i got all the info i needed from this thread. i would like if you checked it out and mabye some feedback on what has to be changed. (if anything)

Also, im using the fan wich came with the CPU

(For those of you who cant see the picture of HW monitor - http://i35.tinypic.com/1qkc1t.jpg)

EDIT: after looking at the screenshots in this thread is see that the HT link on everyone elses screens are much more increased than mine. Should i push it up even more?

Change your HT Link multiplier, set it at 800MHz (x4) in the BIOS, so when you up your HTT to 250MHz it stays at 1000MHz wich is the recommended for your mobo, i think more than 1200MHz that you get is very high, and maybe your max OC is limited by that high frequency for HT Link...

Then you could probe to up more the HTT frequency, until the maximum you see it's stable, and you could get a best OC for your processor...

Sorry for my poor english...

Bye!

P.S.: with stock cooling your OC is a bit high, maybe a cheap cooler like Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro helps your sistem to get a best OC and keeping good temps; your VCore is a bit high too, maybe you could set it at 1.48V max and probe stability...

Okay ill try changing it to 4x, also my temp when stressing with Prime95 after 45 minutes the cpu was at max 50 degrees celcius, I am however buying a Corsair Hydro H50 cpu cooler by the end of the week.

I actually did what you said, and after changing it wouldnt boot anymore, said my CPU frequency was to high. What did i do wrong?


Edit: Went in to BOIS again and change a couple of things, now it looks like this

Yo didn't change the HT Link multiplier, i see it's x5 (229x5=1145MHz), for your mobo max HT Link is 1000MHz (x5), but when you want to OC your processor incrementing HTT (also known like FSB) HT Link could pass a little the max frequency, but it's not good pass too much, so setting HT Link at 800MHz (x4) in the bios, it makes that when HTT goes up the HT Link doesn't go too high...

If you change the HT Link to x4 with the same frequency you'll get 229x4=916MHz, and with a higher HTT, like in your first post, you'll get 249x4=996MHz wich doesn't have to give problems... The HT Link could be over specifications (in your case 1000MHz), but values too high causes problems and doesn't give more performance...

Sorry for my poor english...

Okay problem is, i dont have a HT link multiplier, i have HT link Frequency, i set it back to normal and it still circulates around 1240.. My CPU Frequency(FSB i guess) is @ 250 now where can i find the multiplier?

I do however have a CPU Multiplier, @ 14x thats it?

Jacqlittle, just to clarify but isn't the stock HT Link speed for the Athlon II 2000Mhz?

Krillzen, I'm reading over your manual now and I don't see anything under the M.I.T. (MB Intelligent Tweaker) screen that has an option to change the HT Link speed via multiplier. Some Gigabyte boards have a hidden "Advanced" options screen so perhaps it's located in there. You can access this menu option by hitting the CTRL+F1 key.

You are on the right track to overclocking your Athlon II so don't give up. Raising the HT Clock speed is the correct procedure.

Good luck

Okay, Stock settings my HT link speed is @ 1000Mhz however by changing the FSB my HTlink gets higher also. Im not sure what to do here. FSB is the only way, atleast the only way i know.
