AMD 3500+ OC @ 2604Mhz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just recently bought an AMD 3500+ Venice core w/ a MSI RD480 Neo2 motherboard. I'm not very experienced with overclocking but I thought I would give it a shot and see what kind of results I could get with this combo.

Right now my FSB is set to 237 and multiplier is at stock of 11. DDR is set to 333 for the test. I've had prime 95 going for the last 12+ hours without a problem. Cpu temp max during test has been 29C (Thermaltake Big Typhoon +AS5)

So I'm curious, how far should I try to take this thing? Anyone have any other settings I should try to push it a little further? I've got Corsair Dual Channel DDR400, it's not rated to high so thats why I lowered it to 333 since the FSB at 237 will get it to almost 400.

As far as you can. You've got really great temps right now, so that shouldn't be a problem for a while. When it becomes unstable, just up the vCore a little bit. Good job so far, keep it up.

drop the divider down to 150 and crank up the FSB to see how far you can go while eliminating memory as a factor.
