OC Athlon 64 4000 San Diego Help

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, new to the fourm. You can see my rig's specs below, so I won't mention it here. Anyway, I'm running my cpu oc'd from 2400mhz to 2700mhz. All i did was change the FSB (kept the multiplier the same) and change the voltage to 1.450v with a vcore increase in my bios. I have a couple questions: (1) if i change the multy to 11x and increase the FSB, I figure I can get a higher OC, but is that all I have to change? IE., is my voltage enough, do I need to change the HT from 1000mhz to something like 800mhz or 600mhz, etc? (2) I have all my DRAM congifurations to auto - can I achieve a higher OC if I change them manually or becasue i have good ram, is the auto on that good enough? (3) it seems like i can't get any more voltage to my cpu past 1.450, but i hear people who get theres to like 1.6 - how can I get it to that high? Thanks in advance!

Raise one setting at a time while lowering other settings in order to find the ceiling of each setting when else stock.

Read this guide first. Go slow, ask questions. You will catch on.

Thanks for that! What about my voltages, though? Am I just stock on that because of my mobo? Is there anything I can do?

leave the voltage on auto, if the system crashes on boot or doesnt boot up, then take off the auto and manually set it. start at 1.4125 and increase by 0.125 from there to a max of 1.55. you have good cooling but I wouldnt go any further than 1.55Von mine.

make sure the ram hyper transport is set to 3.
if you experience any problems, try bringing down the ram to ddr333 and make sure you increase the FSB(HTT) by only 5mhz every time to keep track of it easily.

if you have a digital camera, post the pics of your bios options, i dont know what the bios for that mobo look like.

A question about ram: I lowerd my multi to 5x and my cpu:ram ratio to 1:1, and i could only get 220 FSB for my memory. I have pretty good ram, so this number seemed pretty low to me. Any opinions?

Ok, got that under control by adjusting the timings, but now my cpu is limited at 2700mhz - no matter if i increase the fsb and decrease the multi or not. My cpu temp is only at 41* C, anyone have an idea why this is happening? Also, I've tried a 3x and a 4x HT and that doesn't work either. My mobo is limiting my voltage to 1.45 + vcc over, is that it maybe? If that's it, is there a program I can use to increase the voltage to my cpu?

yes, you would need to increease your CPU voltage to make it go higher. In your BIOS you will need to enable the setting that says "vcore over voltage"....then you should be able to increase the juice going to your processor..

Heres a decent link for your MOBO

well your ram might not go over 220 at the set timmings.. loosen them a little and try higher

Thanks for the info and the link guys. I do have v-core over enabled and once i loosened the timings, i got my mem to clock better. Instead of seeing the normal 5x, 4x, 3x etc HT in my bios, though, I see something like HT Frequency: Auto, 200mhz, 400mhz, 600mhz, 800mhz, 1000mhz - I'm assuming that that means 1x,2x,3x,4x,5x respectively, am I correct on that?
