4200+ manchester OC.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently built my computer and started trying to OC for the first time.
Just wanted some advice on what's safe and what isn't.

My setup is;
Abit AN8-32X SLi
AMD 4200+ Manchester
Patriot 1024x2 RAM, 2-3-2-5 timings. Having overclocked RAM yet, sitting
at DDR 333 which puts it at 196 Mhz.
PSU is a no name 550 Watt (I got it because it was clear acrylic)

Currently at 2.750ghz, 250x11 and CPU full load temp is 104.F
That's with water cooled. At 2.6Ghz my CPU load temp was 140F
which made me nervious so I put my water cooling system in,
helped quite a bit. One question was since my temp hardly ever reaches
above 100, will the Artic Silver ever be able to cure?
Vcore is set at 1.425 from the stock 1.300, and while loaded shows
1.475. One of my questions was my PSU, its temp is 130.F, in my uGuru
it shows it's safe upto 176 just wanted to make sure that's the case.

How high can I safely raise my Vcore? What's the highest anyone has ever
OC'ed these to? I couldnt find much about the manchester 4200s.

Very nice system, very good OC too
Please add your System Specs.. link with it via the USER CP.
The AS5 should cure with time, it just may take a little longer.
The cooler you keep the system temp in the case the less temp load you put on the PS so if you have the option improve the case air flow.

I'll add my information in later, I just signed up but have to go to work now.
Thanks for the compliment. My system airflow is pretty good, I have 1 intake
and 2 exhaust fans plus there is dual fans on the PSU. The system temp stays
around 78~ deg F. Do you think I need more intake? So far the PSU hasn't
gotten much above 128~ deg F. I just didn't know what was considered safe.
I'll take a picture of the rig later it'll be easier to understand and maybe
someone can suggest more options for airflow, it's an all acrylic case so it'll
be easy to tell.

For more airflow, you could mod the case to fit more/bigger fans (if your fans are all 80mm). 120mm fans push alot more air and are quieter.
