Overclocking help would be appreciated

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I could really use some help overclocking if anyone is willing to help. I've read the Overclocking Guide but I still don't think I quite get it. My specs are listed below and I've also attached an image of my stock settings. I was hoping to get some advice on what my system should be able to overclock to and such and what speeds/voltages to set things at. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Im not much of an AMD OCer, but i could give you something to work with... First, lower your multi down to 9 (dont run .5 multis) so you can start to raise up the bus speed (called HTT i belive) and loosen up your memory timings. Then slowly increase your bus speed, about 5 at a time untill you start running into problems.. Once you run into problems, raise up your vcore past stock... If your temps are still good keep going untill you run into problems, then post here again... your memory should be good till around 260+ and your cooling with the bigtyphoon is good, so i would expect around 2.5-2.7 ish... (Insert AMD expert info)

hrmmm... Something has to be wrong with a component in my system because I really cant get it past 2.2Ghz... I know I have pretty good RAM for OC'ing, I know this cpu can reach atleast 2.5Ghz... and I don't see any reason why the motherboard would be holding it back... I have the latest drivers and bios update for the mobo so I'm really dumbfounded. Any ideas as to why I can't really overclock?

Did you try to OC the RAM and CPU seperatly first?

The CPU... set the RAM to a much lower speed like 133 (DDR266) to underclock it that way it wont effect the CPU's overclocking.
Increase the vcore (CPU voltage) but keep the full load temp below 50c.
Increase the HTT and check for stability... once you hit an instable OC back down a few MHz on the HTT.
The RAM... set the CPU's multiplyer 3x below default so the CPU wont effect the RAM's OCing. Or in your case reduce from 10x to 7x
Set the vdimm (RAM voltage) to the recommended max whick should be 2.9v
The RAM utilizes an HT factor and the default is ... 5 or
HTTxHT=1000 max
Default 200x5=1000
an HTT of 201-250 use 4x
251-333 use 3x
Increasing the HTT and reducing the HT will require testing for instability ...
The memtest86 Quick test is at the botton of the below article "Memtest".

Once you know each stable MAX your OCing should come together much easier.
