250 x 12??? Shouldn't it be 250 x 13?

Hay guys....
Just joined this forum and already liking it.

I'm in need of some tips to overclock my Athlon 630 further without pushing it too much

CPU: Athlon II X4 630
CPU stepping and manufacturing date: 2 and forgot to write down the other one
Revision: BL-C2. Family F, Model 5, Stepping 2, Ext Family 10, Ext Model 5
Clock speed: 3.5 GHz
FSB x Multi: 250 x 14
Vcore: 1.488 V (at idle) _ 1.504 (at load)
RAM speed: DDR3-1333 (6-6-6-15)
NB speed: 2250 MHz
HT Link: 2000 MHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA785GT-UD3H
Cooling method: Cooler master Z600 equipped with 2 High performance CM 120mm fan (3 pin)
CPU-Z validation: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1018531
OS Used: 32bit Windows XP/ SP3

AS you see I got a solid 3.5 at 1.5 Vcore (tested with prime95)...on many reviews I saw a much lower Stock Vcore ,but it seems mine is among those wth high stock Vcore (1.47). Have tried to reach 3.66 on 1.55 but got a reboot on prime95 after 15 mins. I am way too reluctant to go for 1.57 vcore since I'm afraid this is just alil too high and would damage the CPU!
What u people would suggest ? Should go for 1.57 or 160mhz isnt worth that big Vcore increase ?
Is there anyother method to reach 3.6 without huge vcore increase ?
Should I change NB voltage or Ram Voltage ?

THx in advance
Oh BTW I would like to join the club as well ^^

Idle (26-27 celsius ) - Load (46-47 celsius )

Im going to be adding another 120mm fan on the back door right under the CPU socket(pumping fresh air directly toward back of the CPU socket) , probably reduces 2-3 degrees.

Edit:Nope that extra 160MHz isn't worth it I guess...Just dont want to burn it out before its 1 year old !
In order to be added to the list u got to prove validation link ,right??
There you go :

Hi,

Newbie on here, have read through most of this thread as I am interested in building a budget Athlon X4 PC. I had a few questions which I don't think have been covered so if any of you knowledgable folk have answers that would be great.

I'm interested in using either a 620 or 630 X4, but I wanted to know which overclocks better on air? my other question is, has anyone benchmarked their oc'd cpu to see what gains have been made compared to stock ?

For info...using the PC for normal word/excel, browsing, bits of 1080p video encoding/transcoding, not much gaming....

So far my shopping list is as follows:

620/630 X4 (looking to OC a little probs try getting and extra 600mhz)
Titan TTC-NK85TZ (cooler)
Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H
Corsair CX Series 400W
Patriot G Series 4GB 1333Mhz DDR3

I don't intend to use a seperate Graphics Card, so would a 400W PSU be OK ?

Thanks for your input....

they are the same chip, just with a different multiplier. and for a quick walk through of overclocking, look at my signature.
Now if you aren't using a discret graphics card, don't expect to do any gaming. Pick up something like a 9800gt green, and you're good, low power consuption and more than enough power for what you want to do

Hi all. I'm wanting to join this club once I get my system built. Right now it's in the planning stages. I have done quite a bit of research and this is the parts list I have come up with my budget, which is $750 CDN before taxes.

CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 620 - $100.79
Mobo: ECS A785GM-M - $108.84
RAM: G.SKILL F3-10666CL9D-4GBRL - $115.30
Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 4870 1GB - $156.99
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB - $68.99
DVD: LG GH24LS50 24X SATA DVD±RW - $28.57
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W -$71.98
Case: Coolermaster Storm Scout - $96.77

Total: $748.23

I intend to mild overclock to get the CPU to 3.0GHz

I'll mainly be using the system to play Modern Warfare 2 and Splinter Cell: Conviction

If you could, get a fan to go across the NB/Mosfet heatsink, ,as it warms up alot on that board.

Thanks for the advice, I have some of my components and i'm about to order the Xigmatek Dark Knight S1283V. From research this heatsink sits horizontally on a gigabyte MA785GMT, has anyone managed to figure a way of rotating this 90 degree so it sits virtically so my exhuast fan extracts all that hot air ??

Also would it be a problem if I were to install my DDR3 in slots 3 - 4, instead of slots 1 - 2, I'm worried the heatsink will mean my Patriot Sector 5 DDR3 1600mhz won't fit !

Thank you..

You'll need to pick up one of these from Xigmatek

Also, if you can, get a Xigamtek Balder (Newegg link if you're US) instead of the Dark Knight. As the Balder comes with more bolt through kits for different sockets, and natively supports Push/Pull configs.

Though, that AMD Bracket from Xig isn't in the market yet (not anywhere that I can find) but it is supposed to be there in march.

If you can't wait, an member here offers brass or Aluminum bolt on plates to use instead. Look at this thread and PM Najflhy
