AMD XP 2400+ - Need Help Overclocking - Page 2

post #11 of 45
The volcano 12 is a good HSF (I used to have it.) But its freakin loud. I gave it to a friend when I got my 64 and When he brings it over it sounds like an airplane landing. As for the Vcore you will not need to raise it a whole lot. (what is it at now?) and Instead of just going to 200*10 and messing w the multi why not see if your ram will go any higher too.. Try upping the fsb past 200 first with a low multi and see where the ram will go.

Get better cooling, unlock the multi (If Locked) and set it to 11x200, then it would be as good as a 3200+ (Not in cache size though)

Yes... it can get loud ... I had to max it out to get over 2600MHz from my 2600m and I was only using 1.775v

He is correct... that may be obtainable ... but it's back to the FHS and it's ability to cool the CPU!

OK... from NewEgg.com

Just ordered:

Arctic Silver +5
Thermaltake Big Typhoon
120mm 100cfm Blue LED fan

With these three additions in and my new PC3200ram you're saying I should be able to easily stock clock it to 200x10 and probably another 200 - 300mhz to 200 x 11 or 11.5?

That would make me very happy...

Sorry... Voltage is currently at 1.72vcore

The little warning message I get about upping the core in the bios basically relates to the fact that the cpu can be damaged if the temp gets too high right? If I put this Big Typhoon and 100cfm fan on that should be arriving on Monday or Tuesday... then it should be cool enough to up the voltage. My bios has a multi unlocked to 18, fsb unlocked to 260 and voltage to 1.85... so you know.

When I set it for 200 x 11 or 11.5 what am I looking at for a voltage increase?

A few questions there... thanks again for all the help!

You are correct. I would work on upping that FSB more. Up the fsb until it doesn't post and then up the voltage one and keep going. You may be able to do like 220*10 instead of 200*11 which would be better. You only have to worry about heat when youup the vcore.

Wouldn't going to 220 fry the ram since it can only accept 200 (400 effective) maybe that's where I'm confused.

But when I get all those components I'll try stability at 200 x 10 and up the FSB till it won't post... reset the CMOS and start from those settings upping the voltage and then back to the fsb.

The ram will not fry. You should be able to pull a little more from the ram than stock. You may have to change the timings (do you know what they are?) to achieve this but More FSB is always better than a higher multi.

Heh... Yes... I know what they are, though I don't necessarily KNOW what they do. I'm certainly computer literate so picking up this stuff isn't too difficult... I'm getting it all as you are throwing it at me...

My curren clock settings on the PC2100 are 2.5-3-3-7 and I CAN change them in the bios... I'm liking this A7V8X for overclocking... lots of options.

Well I meant did you know what the pc3200 was rated at but thats ok. Lets use the pc2100 as the example.This is how to test the rams max FSB Ok say you have set your multi really low (like 5) and the fsb @ 200.... Then we up the fsb little by little till it wont post. Then reset bios and pop back in change timing to 2.5-3-4-7. Try again. Once you top that go 2.5-4-4-7, then 3-4-4-7 then to 3-4-4-8 and see how high you get.
