overclocking amd x2 4200 questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My online gaming friend just build a new computer... I'm planning on helping him overclock his system, however i'm not very familiar with the x2's! So I figure it would be good to start here.

His system specs:
amd x2 4200
Duel raptor 75gig HD's
two 1gig ocz ram (duel channel)
geforce 7800gtx
asus a8n sli premium motherboard
600 watt power supply
stock processor cooling...


Just wondering if anyone knows, or who has duel core x2's what kind of preformance they are getting.... and what voltages they are running, and how high they have successfully got their fsb?

he (she) will need better cooling because at least with my experience youll need to bumb up vcore to get anything stable over like 2.4

i didnt get the stock cooling with my core so i dont know how good it is but usually they arent that good once temps start going up

nice setup by the way

read the faq's on ocing amd itll help for a start

I have the same processor and motherboard, right now with stock cooling I am running the computer 24/7 at 2.475 GHz (225 x 11). It idles at 29C right now and under load it's about 50 or 51 or so. I don't dare go any higher right now. Just today I ordered the Big Typhoon with Arctic Silver 5 and a 110CFM fan to go on it. That should keep things nice and cool. Hope that helps.
