stability help Athlon II x4 640

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i have overclocked my athlon 2 x4 640 to 3.825GHZ
i have a hyper TX3 cooler with dual fans
so its cool
im not sure if its the voltage or not


it seems stable when using normaly but crashes after playing gta 4 for 15-20 minutes im not sure if i have enough voltage this thread shows my bios from when i over-clocked to 3.6GHZ
http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/92...rclocking.html

regardless of the clock settings my temps are 40c

also when i try to set my multiplayer past 255x15 it shows cpu speed @ 0mhz for 260x15 and 160mhz@265x15 in the bios before i save the settings any ideas why

true but under this cooler the temperature is the same as stock voltage and clocks

Why is the HT Link so low. That should be kept at 2000 to help stability.

Also the highest you can normally get on an Athlon II is 3.8Ghz
