AMD 3700+ San Diego - Overclockin Question - Page 3

post #21 of 98
Raising the multi will only raise the clock speed, which has the same effect as raising the HTT by an equivalent amount, to the CPU.
If you do use a .5 multi, check out my FAQ as this will affect the Memory Speed as well.
If you don't want to raise the vcore, then the only option would be to try better cooling to help keep the CPU stable at higher clock speeds.
Btw, do try the Ram on a divider just to check that it's not the limiting factor.

Thanks very much.

I have read your .5 a64 post. That cleared up the confusion I had before. Thanks you!!!

There are just two things im unsure of:

1. Why would better cooling effect the CPU stability, as my idle is about 37*c, and load just 5-8*C more.

2. What setting should I set the memclock to to use a mem divider. Will 200Mhz be right? Afetr doing this memdivider, do I just run a normal Prime95. Does it matter what CPUZ reads as the CPU/** but when I use the mem divider.

Thanks

Lookign forward to your reply...

The cooler you get a CPU, the more efficient it becomes. Adding vcore is a way to help stabilise a CPU as well. If you used watercooling, for example, your CPU would be more stable as it's cooler, and would almost certainly clock higher, as it's now more stable.
Yes, set your memclock to 200 and test. If it passes, then it's your memory that's limiting you, but if it fails then it's the CPU. Remember to set back to 400 otherwise you'll be running your Ram at half it's normal speed.

thanks
No, your motherboard is the limiting factor on fsb,not your cpu. Just to give you some figures, I ran 2.86 ghz on my 3700 on stock cooling with stock paste. You'll find that a slight bump in Vcore will allow for higher clock speeds. Just out of curiousity, do you know what stepping that you have? Mine's CABGE and the highest I've gotten with my Zalman is 2.922 so far.

i also have CABGE
i have lowered the memclock to 200 and will post results
thanks

have finished occt

IT CAME OUT AS STABLE

I am a bit worried now

thatr menas my RAM is the limiting factor!!!

How do I change this/ fix this.

AAhhhhhh..

Waiting eagerly for reply....

Okay, that's good news. What are your memclock settings, Vdimm and Ram timings?
