How can I overclock my Athlon 64 3000+ CPU?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello Everybody,

Can somebody advise me how I should overclock my athlon 64 3000+ processor? I have a MSI K8N Neo2-FX motherboard with comes with software to speed up the processor but I'm not happy with that way. I noticed that it can also be ajusted in the Bios settings.

Now is the question is what kind of values I have to enter in my bios or what steps to take.

thnx in advance!

Just increase your HTT/FSB 5 mhz at a time until you cant post .But set a divider first so the ram doesnt interfere with the o/c tehn when you have reached the limit at stock v-core up the v-core slightly and go again .But keep an eye on your temps .55 degrees full load is the concensus here .Run super initially to test stability 1mb first len longer to establish your true o/c stability ... www.guru3d.com all the software you will need is here ..alsotry checking out he faq,s which is a good start

yo, i need help with the same proc. but i have an asus A8V-E Deluxe. do i need to do it with one of the two bios automatic overclockers, or do i need to go on and learn it the hardway? and if the latter, what do i do if everything is stock? act like i have no idea what i am doing, by the way. mainly because in o/c, i don't.

well for both of you who are looking for how to OC it is best done via the BIOS. senshikaze you should probably start your own thread because as each of you start you'll run into different circumstances and questions and it would be best to keep things separated.

but here's a basic starter.

to OC you raise the htt frequency. your cpu speed is determined by htt frequency x cpu multiplier so 3000+ has a 9x multi so 9x200 = 1.8Ghz. the htt also determines your RAM frequency but it is multiplied by 2 so 200 x 2 = 400 or DDR400. your hyper transport frequency is also dependant on the htt frequency by default the multi is 5x so 5x200=1000

alright, so you need to find what each component can handle first. so in the bios you'll need to first find what your mobo can do. underclock your cpu by changing your multi to 6 or 7 and set your ram on a dividor of 100 or 200 depending on what your bios calls them. then change the htt multi to 3x and start increasing your htt by about 10mhz at a time until your computer can't boot windows anymore. (if you get past 333 then you'll have to lower your htt multi again) this is your max mobo htt frequency.

now, put your cpu multi back up at 9x and start back at a htt of 200... increase by about 10mhz until your cpu is not prime95 stable for 5 min. once it is not stable lower the frequency until it is. this is your max cpu speed. you can raise your vcore to about 1.55 or so, but watch temps.

once you know what your cpu can do then it's time to find your memory max. underclock your cpu again by setting the multi down. and go into the memory settings. you may have to give it a bit more juice, loosen timings a bit but increase htt again and boot to memtest. once your memory cannot pass memtest it's time to increase voltage, loosen timings or lower frequency.

once you've found the max of all then you'll have an idea how to put it all together. keep in mind that you don't want to run the max all the time but running at 90-95% of the max should be ok as long as you can get your system stable. stable for ram means passing memtest about 20 times and the system being about 12 hours prime stable.

hope this helps.

NP... start your own
A good guide on OCing ... note the referance to FSB or Front Side Bus is not longer used.. the simular property in a 939 MB is the "HTT."
