Help for newbee

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just joined today so excuse me if I ask stupid questions. I'm fairly new to
overclocking and have dabbled alittle with other rigs. On the two I have
oc'd I just raised the fbs and didn't touch voltage, multipliers ect...
One was a 3 gig skt 468 P4 and the other a skt 754 3200. I got those
to oc 200 over using stock heatsinks and artic silver 5. Now I have an
X2 3800 dualcore and I can't even get to a modest 2.2 with a Thermaltake
9500 heatsink in a Thermaltake Armor case with great airflow. Can anyone
help me make the proper adjustments in the bios to start with.
Heres what I'm working with: MSI NEO2 F, 2 gig Corsair XMS 3200 ( 4 x 512 )
a Thermaltake Purepower 460 psu.

Welcome to verclock.net!

Depends on the room temp. Generally 29c to 32c idle and 48c to 52c load when
the room is 65 to 70 f.
Thats the average.

Your Idle temps are good. But Something is amiss with your full load temps, it seems as if the cooler is not doing its job or something. thats like about a 20 deg jump in temps.
I Idle at 34 and still dont hit 44 at full load. I would recommend that you reseat the heatsink. DO a fresh start, clean off all paste and reapply, remember just a small grains is all thats needed.

Already tried that. When I say 48 to 52 that can varie by 4 to 5 deg.
It all depends on what I'm running / playing and the room temp.
Right now it's nice and cool and after 5 loops of 3DMARK 05 it would go
from 27 ( as I'm typing this ) to 45 or so. It really depends on ambient
room temp alot.
