How much could I overclock?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey,
I got a new machine, well replaces all but the case and cd rom.
So my specs are:
ASUS A8N-E Motherboard ATX S939 NFORCE4
AMD Opteron 144 Processor S939 Venus 1.8GHZ 1MB L2 Cache 90NM 64BIT
OCZ Premier PC3200 1GB 2X512MB DDR400 CL2.5 3-3-7 184PIN DIMM Dual Channel
EVGA E-GEFORCE 7600 GT CO 580MHZ PCI-E 256MB 128BIT 1.5GHZ GDDR3

So, does anyone can estimate how high my CPU can be overclocked? I currently have it to 1.8GHz (default).

BTW: Do I need to do anything special so that the two 512MB becomes in dual channel mode.

You should get a pretty good overclock. I'll have to look at your board. I'm not sure if the max vcore is 1.55 or 1.45v. What is you opty's stepping. Look at the link in my sig(AMD overclocks) and look at the 144's there to see how they did.
EDIT/// I believe max voltage is 1.55v

If it is put in the two proper slots it should be done automatic. If it says its in single then change one of them(should say in manual which two to use if your not sure).

In your link, there isn't even the 144 And CPU-Z reports me that my ram channel is single... I'll try to switch them. Here is what CPU-Z reports me:

EDIT: Nvm... I had one ram in the blue connector and the other one in the black. I put both in the blue connector and it says Dual now
