overclocking 3700+ through windows

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi guys-

im like 1 min new to the forums so hi

i have a san diego 3700+ but i have a proprietory mobo (asus a8ae-le, amberine m, from hp a1310n) i bought it cheap for 529 and it came with 1 gig of dual channel ddr400 and a barracuda 7200 sata 150

so i was happy only to find out that my BIOS is locked, for good, no real ocing for me

im using clockgen, but i max out at 2407 mhz, after that the computer gives a mem error message and the comp reboots

is there any way through windows that i can oc to around 2.6ghz??? how, will my ram handle it? what can i do? can i change my timings to counteract the high fsb through windows?

this is the cpuz link:

Getting that good an OC with software is very commendable.
Personally, I doubt you will do any better

hey
is my only other chance to buy some better ram, and overhaul my pc with a new mobo? im looking into a dfi lp, but its way to expensive, i want the asus 32x sli but thats over my head, my budget is 400 for a cheap psu, mobo, maybe some ram, and a gfx card (someting to get me up until standardized dx10)

OK now have you prime95 tested it to see if it's stable under load and what are your temps at full load...these are 2 factors you have to know for it to be a good overclock...it has to be stable under full load and the cpu temp has to stay below 50 degrees celcius at full load...nice OC tho

only way you can go higher is if you can change your RAM divider in the ?BIOS (ie. set your RAM to 166 (333) rather than 200 (400))

you're resetting because your RAM cannot run that high

hey its stable at Prime95 all day and staying at 40-41c no errors mem test 800% no errors at 219mhz, 221mhz and all hell breaks loose

my bios is locked cuz i have an hp (hey, it was cheap)
do u guyz think a 6800xt 256mb will take me for a year or two? its under a hundred after rebate on newegg

however lame it may sound i got 4900 3dmarks stock with the rad xpress and 5500 oced (finally beat my mobility radeon 7500 32mb lol)

so a new mobo is my only option

your not gonna get any more out of it...not enuf to justify the cost of the ram...I'd leave it at that and be happy with it till you can afford to build a new rig.

youll only be able to push your fsb to 250 I think......that's where you have to change your HT mult...which you cant do....so the ddr400 would suffice....pretty sure that's within the OCZ ddr400 stable range.

but as smithy said maybe just leave it.......though if you did splurge on some OCZ RAM then you would have that to put into your next rig
