OCing a socket 754 athlon 64 3400+

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a socket 754 Athlon 64 3400+ Newcastle on a k8 triton motherboard.
I know my options are limited as this is a VERY budget board. I have read through many forums and thank you to all that have helped me to oc my computer.

What i am trying to do know is decrease the multiplier and increase the fsb? i think that is the right term. so instead of it saying 211x12 it will say something like 220x10 or whatever the multiplier will be.

When i tried doing that my computer turned on okay but my graphics card decided not to work. I am assuming then that it is because of the fsb multiplier being too high for the graphics card to operate?
What would be my limitations with this very basic board and cpu?

Try putting it at 220 with a 5:6 ram divider if you can. You might need to give it some more voltage if it doesn't boot like that.

220 with the cpu mulitple of x12 so 220x12. don't worry about dropping the multiple down to x10.
Add vcore if needed, try to stay at or under 1.55v and watch load temp. keep at or under 50c.

I would say its your memory, As the same thing happened to me. In my case, I left my Clock multiplier at 9, and just raised my FSB. I also lowered my HTT Link multiplier from 4 to 3 and put on a memory divider of 200/166. So heres where im at now:

270x9 = 2430MHz
270 x 3 = 810MHz HTT Link (should Never go over 1000)
Memory at 448Mhz with divider.

See, my CPU/Mobo were great, it's just that I had to put a big memory divider to keep going on with my CPU, as my memory was reaching its limits. And we both have very similar rigs, except i have an A64 2800. One thing I would try is to remove one stick and try OC'ing again. 1GB does outperform 2GB in most cases.

I did all my overclocking with 1 stick of 512MB at 2.5-3-3-8 1T.

at the moment i put my multiplier back up to x12 and my htt at 212. it seems to be stable enough to get back on the forum..i am about to run some benchmark apps and see what happens.
my mobo lets me decrease the multiplier and i can change the htt frequency but that seems to be it. I have tried seeing if i can find a way to adjust my vcore setting but to no avail. oh well, looks like it is time to convince the missus to let me buy another mobo.
