you should post all your current settings.

add a cpuz screenshot of cpu and RAM tabs

and see if your system can even handle that OC.

Note:- mine is Asus A8N 32 sli deluxe.

A friend send this:-

".......You could perhaps try the following settings and see if they work.............using the following settings with the divider gives you a 2.4ghz CPU with a standard 400mhz or PC3200 ram speed, in this way, you overclocked the CPU and FSB but not the ram.
RAM divider = [166]
Vcore = 1.425v (true Vcore as measured in Speedfan)
HTT = 240mhz
CPU multi = 10x
RAM = 200mhz
HT multi = 4x ..........."

So I changed all "AUTO" to "Manual" in the Bios & entered theses settings:-
FSB=240, CpuMultplr=10, Vcore=1.3625, Hyprtr Mulplr=4x, VRam=2.60, Ram Divdr 166, and
it O/clocked to 2.4ghz.

Any thing else I tried to change it just fails. I find it very confusing subject.

BUT if you do not have already these, get them to monitor TEMPs & test each setting change.

If it fails, reboot to Bios, and on the "EXIT" tab select to Load DEFAULTS, and start again.

Also try this excelent O/clocking tuition:-

Yes, I've tried it! It works.
But, I barely had time to use the previous BIOS as I only bought my A8N32-SLI two weeks ago, so I wouldn't know if the previous BIOS had any problems.


But, I can tell you this ......... my Opteron 170 runs at 2700 MHz
I can do either 10 x 270 or 9 x 300 without any problems.
10 x 270 is slightly faster as I can lower the RAM timings and use a command rate of 1T.
RAM is 1:1 with FSB and timings are as follows - 2.5-3-3-6 1T
For 9 x 300 I had to use 3-5-5-10 2T.

I've given it several hours of stress testing at both 10 x 270 & 9 x 300 and found both settings to be rock solid.

I've read that this board will only do 310MHz FSB before is starts playing up.
Not that I tried this with the previous BIOS on my board, but with the new BIOS I couldn't get it stable at 310. 305 was stable though.
@ 310 I could do Doom 3 timedemos over and over again without problem, but once I started stress testing it would start to behave a little weird.

I don't know if that helps, as I can't make any comparisons to the pevious BIOS revision, but as you've read, it does work.

I'm running 2.6ghz on 1.52 volts right now, can someone please help me?
Well, I have an Opteron 170 and these are my settings:
Chipset:
K8 to NB Frequency = 2X
K8 to NB LinkWidth = 16/16
SB to NB Frequency = 2X
SB to NB LinkWidth = 16/16

Yeah, the K8 to NB is low, but my board wasn't stable at 3X when overclocking.

As for the multiplier, I can use either 9 x 300 or 10 x 270 while keeping my RAM 1:1.
But, I get slightly faster results using 10 x 270. (see previous post)
My RAM is running at it's rated voltage of 2.8v.
CPU voltage is at 1.6v.
A friend of mine also has a X2 4400, and he runs his CPU at 1.6v @ 10 x 270.
Though, your CPU can use a multiplier of 11, so, if you're interested in having the RAM run 1:1 with the FSB with low timings but your RAM can't hack it, you could also use 11 x 245 for 2695Mhz, or 11 x 246 for 2706Mhz.

Hope that helps?
