Occt is wrong a lot and it will continue to say propus even if you do unlock (mine did atleast)

You can just try unlocking l3 cache from what I know there aren't really any risks of TRYING to unlock it set your cpu to stock clocks and enable acc.

First, what's with all of these weak FSB failures? I'm not lucky, so I know it's not a chance I got a better CPU.

A lot of these overclockers don't seem to do things step by step:

Step 1: Turn off Cool N' Quiet
Step 2: Manually adjust HT Link Multiplier to keep under 2100, and CPU-NB Multiplier to keep >= HT, and Under 2100.
Step 3: Manually adjust RAM multiplier to keep below stock frequency.
Step 4: Take voltages of CPU, CPU-NB, RAM, NB-SB-HT off auto.
Step 5: Lock in RAM timings (CL, tRCD, tRP, tRAS, tRC, CR)
Step 6: Adjust FSB frequency up. I did it in 25 mhz jumps.
Step 7: Save settings and start up computer.
Step 8: If computer blue screens, turn up voltage on CPU-NB, go back to step 7. If computer crashes, turn up CPU voltage, go back to step 7. If you login and register CPU-Z, go back to Step 6 until satisfied.
Step 9: Prime95 test it. If it crashes before 3 hours, adjust CPU voltage up and return to step 7. If it blue screens, adjust RAM voltage up (once total) and return to step 7. If you already adjusted the RAM voltage once, adjust up the CPU-NB voltage and return to step 7.
Step 10: ??
Step 11: Profit.

(Note, Step 10 and 11 are south park jokes)

Now for my post to join the club:
  • Athlon II X4 Type: 620
  • CPU stepping and manufacturing date: CADAC, Stepping 2, Revision BL-C2. Not sure about the rest on the CPU itself.
  • BIOS Version: v10.6
  • Clock speed: 3737.7 mhz
  • FSB x Multi: 325mhz x 11.5
  • Vcore: 1.544v (bounced between 1.53 and 1.6 in prime lol, this motherboard is ****ty)
  • RAM speed: 1300 MHZ (9,9,9,24,34,2T) (CL,RCD,RP,RAS,RC,CR)
  • NB speed: 2600 MHZ
  • NB Voltage: 1.511v
  • HT Link: 1950 MHZ
  • HT Voltage: 1.339v
  • Motherboard: MSI 770-G45 (MS-7599)
  • Cooling method: Air
  • HSF Used or Water Block: Coolermaster Hyper 212
  • CPU-Z validation would also be nice.: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1703402
  • OS Used: Windows 7 Professional x64

I will try to push this to a 12x multiplier/

You do realize that "weak FSB speeds" is completely dependant on the motherboard being used, right? I was at 275 x 13.5 on my 630, DDR2-1100. My board wouldn't push past 275 though.

I was referring to a lot of the "my fsb won't go higher than 212, 225" posts I have seen in various threads. Also, going back and editing my previous post after noticing Prime not liking my settings.

I had similar issues, I brought my cpu to 3.1GHZ, couldn't get it above 250x13, but after setting in the manual settings, keeping HT Link below 2100, RAM near stock, and setting manual voltages, things smoothed out to 300.

Hey guys, I'm pretty new to overclocking and I'm having a problem, I have an AMD Athlon II x4 620 @ 2.6ghz and attempted to overclock it via bios but i noticed that i wasn't able to get past the bios screen after 215mhz bus speed. Seeing that everyone is able to achieve at-least 3.0ghz, I don't see why I would not be able to.

These are my specs:
AMD Athlon II X4 620 Processor 2.6 GHz
ASUS M2N68-AM SE2 Motherboard
(1x) Ultra 2048MB PC5400 DDR2 667MHz RAM
(2x) 250GB WD SATA HDD
Sapphire Vapor-X ATI Radeon 5770 GDDR3 1GB
BFG Tech LS-450 450W PSU

Here is my CPU-Z validation to as high as i can overclock it:

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1703483

Here are pictures of my relevant Bios settings:






Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

When you OC using the FSB, it also changes your ram HT link and NB speeds. Instead of leaving them at auto, I would manually set the ram's speed, voltage and timings to spec. NB and HT link links too.

Just noticed that the max NB and HT link your mobo will do is 1000mhz because its AM2 based. No doubt it holding you back.

Have you updated the bios ?

Yes, my bios is up to date, but how do i control the HT link and NB speeds if they're not listed in my bios?

You don't, because you have a really really cheap, really old motherboard that was never made to use an AM3 processor.

LOL, Well.. I cant disagree with that, however this is where i got my mobo from: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...?EdpNo=4496440

It says that it goes up to 2000MHz for HT, So I'm assuming you googled the wrong mobo?

Also I bought it in a bare-bones kit from tiger direct that came with this cpu, so you cant really blame me for choosing the wrong combination.

And one last thing, is it conclusive that its hopeless to overclock this cpu significantly with this mobo?

Thanks again, I appreciate your time.

Edit: Sorry, I didn't realize it wasn't the same person who replied. Please ignore that part about googling the wrong mobo.
