Best socket A overclock?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
What's the best overclock anyone has achieved on a socket A platform? I currently have a SDA3300DKV4E running at 2444mhz (222 x 11, locked). Can't seem to push it any further without instability. Running vcore @1.85v, 1.6 on chipset, 2.7 on ram. Have tried 1.8v on chipset, raising volts on ram, and a .83 multiplier on the ram, none of which seemed to help. Have I just hit the top end on the cpu? If I try to raise vcore any more, it seems to raise temps radically up to the 60c range, don't think I want to run it that way long term, Anyone gone much further with socket A? Thanx.

I have taken 2500+ Mobiles to 2.4GHz prime95 (12hours) stable. I never could get past this either. Your chip is basically a Barton and you have a fine overclock.

Considering your sig and video card I would say that since you are not a hardcore gamer that this system will still be plenty fast.

Damn.... a Barton at over 3 Ghz? I gotta see some screenies for that! Are you running phase? There's no way that could be done on air. The best I've got with my xp-m 2600 was 2.45.

I had my 2600+ barton up to 195x11.5 (2243mhz) on my crappy VIA mobo. It was at 1.725vcore and 2.9vdimm. couldn't get stable at any faster speeds. I was locked at 11.5 multi, but the temps were fine there (41c load) i think it was just the mobo holding me back.
