Anybody use AMD Overdrive? Has to be lying - Page 2

post #11 of 16
CPU bus speed x Multiplier = actual CPU overall speed
The HT multiplier is not related to the overall CPU speed, but a separate bus speed

Welder, do yourself a favor and uninstall that program. It's buggy and it is NEVER a good idea to overclock using software. ONLY USE THE BIOS!!!!

Take a look at Logans Phenom II overclocking guide. It will totally apply to your CPU with the exception of the locked multiplier on your chip. But he goes over how to overclock without using the multiplier.

PS: To everyone calling AMD's "FSB" HT or HTT or HTT reference clock. None of those terms are right. The "FSB" officially is known as the reference clock, not ht or HTT or HTT ref clock. IT's the same thing as the "Base clock" on the new i series CPU's from intel.

that is in advanced mode. The program is still running, haven't committed anything to cmos. It's great to see people actually monitor these threads and give good feedback! Thanks all! I'll read some on that OC guide and see how far I can cook this thing. Very impressive mobo and processor for $100

Overclocking just like BIOS flashing from within the OS is for suckers imho and can lead to a world of hurt. Learn to Overclock from within the BIOS instead, there are many great guides everywhere including this forum.

Just an apdate - I took your advice Xerran, read till my eyes bled about OC'ing from BIOS with the Athlon. Took it to about 3.6GHz before it got a little unstable and warm, backed it down to 3.4 and everything is great. I did remove Overdrive. Thanks all!!

Are you still getting high motherboard temps?

I only ask because my MSI 785 also reads high temps, it is always at 127 C.
