Overclocking Sempron 2300

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody!

I'm new in world of overclocking, so I need help...

Here is my situation:

AMD Sempron 2300+ @ 1580MHz
ECS (Elite Group) N2U400-A
2x256MB + 1x512MB Kingston
Sapphire ATI Radeon 9600Pro 400MHz/300MHz
Maxtor 80GB/7200rpm/2MB
DVD-RW Pioneer 110d

Can I get 2000MHz (or more) with this piece of AMD and how?

Welcome to the site, not a whole lot you can do with that system.

well i have a ECS mobo, and a good start was to flash the BIOS with an overclocking version and bump up the FSB*shrugs*

Hi, welcome to the Overclockers!

My 2nd rig is a 2300 Sempron too and I run it at 233 x 9.5 prime stable
with 1.9 volt and 55C with Speeze Cooler (up to 3400+)
Normally you can get 2200MHz easy if you have a good cooling and risk a bit more voltage!

The problem will not be the chip but the mobo . Elite boards as a rule dont allow much of an overclock ..Just try raising the fsb and see how far you can get .I dont think there is an option in the bios to up the v-core.I might be wrong of course .I also dont think that ram will become an issuse until later on again i don,t think ECS allows for a ram divider ...Sorry to be so negative

Thanx to all. With default cooler and FSB at 200, Sempron was 1900MHz but sometimes games just go out to desktop or turned off, but in Everst, CPU temp was about 48C maximum.

What 2 do now?

I have a Sempron 2300+ running in my old rig and I could overclock that no problem to 2.0Ghz without setting a divider on my PC2700 KingMax RAM. I don't remember off the top off my head what voltages and whatnot I used but It overclocks fairly well and easy. The chip I know can do 2.0Ghz and be Prime 95 stable, but I'm not familiar with how good ECS mobo's are. Good luck though.

I say unlock that cpu multiplier and leave the fsb alone, just google for athlon xp unlocking. But I believe you just need to bridge the L1 or something like that
