A64 3200 Clawhammer CG - What could this possibly do on air?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Before I start, this is the "CG" revision CPU with the 1024 lvl 2 cache (hoping that's a good thing). This runs stock at 2.0 (10x200)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...creenShot3.jpg <--- CPUZ shot that was taken off my old board & the FSB was bumped up a little because that was all I had access to on my old mobo.

I just got a great deal on a DFI Lanparty UT nf3 250GB Mobo because it was suggested to me by a few other members here (thank you!)... Thus far seems like an awesome board, but I'm having a hella time trying to figure out the proper settings to get it around 2.5 stable(higher if possible).

I have a Thermaltake TT-420AD powering this & all the rails are rock stable.

I have 2x512mb Geil PC3200 "Value Series" RAM (2.5-8-4-4)... These are basically brand new off an RMA from Geil.. Here are some additional numbers on the RAM if that would help: GE1GB3200BDC 8 41517 0068 4 .... More info on this; I have the memory placed in slots 1 & 3 because it will not post with them in 1 & 2.

I'm cooling this with an A64 Silencer, which keeps this CPU @ 89F idle and ~ 120F at Full Load... I do plan on getting water at some point when I can afford it, but i've been satisfied none the less.
-----------------------------
I've made attempts at mixing up various dividers along with changing the FSB speeds... My most successfull clock attempt so far was 2.25, which is where it resides now. The whole confusion for me goes into the Timings of the Memory though. I have no clue where they should reside.

I'm kinda hoping that somebody with some experience with this combo could possibly lead me along here please

I know the memory will eventually be my restriction, but I cannot afford to upgrade right now.

Thanks!!!!!!!

Wow 2.6 to 2.7?

I have the clawhammer 3700 and cant get it past 2.5 it sounds like i need to bump up the voltage...

Could anyone make a suggestion for this setup, like where I should set the voltages to, memory divider (and/or timings)?

I'd be grateful for the help!

My clawhammer took 1.7V to get to 2.8ghz. So, if your clawhammer required the same power, your settings would be along the lines of:
Vcore:1.55V
Vcore special vid: 110% <--that setting allows you to run vcores higher than 1.55V
ram divider 4:5 <---That would keep your value ram at 400mhz, you may be able to get away with a 5:6 or 9:10
htt/ldt mutli: 3X

However, to best tweak your system you should individually test your cpu, ram and max motherboard speeds using the following overclocking guide.
