It's not hopeless, it's just harder.

http://motherboards-reviews.com/ASUS...S_screens.html

This is a site that did some overclocking with your motherboard, a different processor, but same concept.

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.

Thanks again, I appreciate your time.

Some sites have it listed wrong. Your mobo will do 1000mhz/2000mt which is half of the CPU's default speed. AM3 boards are capable of 2600mhz/5200mt, btw.

Try 12x or 13x 250mhz on the FSB, down clock the ram and manually set its timings/ volts to defaults. Cpu volts should be at 1.325 and mind your temps.

Thanks, but i give up on my crappy motherboard, can you suggest a decently priced AM3 motherboard that overclocks well with my 620?

And if possible, can you suggest good 4GB DDR3 ram that also overclocks well?

Please use any of these sites:

http://ncix.com/

http://www.newegg.ca/

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/

Thanks again!

No probs .. Its really up to you b/c all makers boast about the OC potential of their boards. Gigabyte, MSI, Biostar and Asus all make good 790-890gx/fx chipsets. Same goes for the ram. There are plenty of reviews out there that should help you decide.

I have never really OC'd my ram and NB for that matter lol. For me, the temp gains and potential BSODs are not worth the nominal performance gains.
Although... now that I have way better cooling, I am feeling the urge to push things a little more.

See pic. Too bad I ex'ed out the FFXIV window by accident hehe... But still... sweet temps !
CPU - 3.5ghz - 14x 250mhz, 1.385v GPU - 702/1242/1620

Cheers lol.. .but I want to see temps/screenies.

What is the fastest your CPU will run, with little/no temp gain ? Did it unlock ?
post #1309 of 1595
Guess i will swap back my 620 into my rig soon
let see how far i can go with it compared to my 945 now.

If you're a gamer sell your chip and board and get an i3 2100 and a 99 dollar board. You can't overclock it, but it's atleast on par with a Phenom II 975 and usually faster even though it's only 3.1Ghz(the 975 is 3.5). When you get some cash buy a k series chip(there will be more of them in the coming months).

Hell you could even go 1156+i3 5xx overclock it to 4Ghz+ and be much better off as long as HT is enabled. If you don't game then there is no reason to overclock. If you're going to be buying a new board anyways I would get something else.
