Athlon II 245 help

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to overclock my son's computer. I have read that AMD Overdrive isn't the preferred method, and to use BIOS. Stock it's 2.9ghz, all I did was raise the fsb to 240 the multiplier is maxed out at 14.5 doesn't let me go any higher and my cpu voltage I increased to 1.45. I booted up fine it's now 3.48ghz. I ran OCCT for 30 mins I figured within the first 5 to 15 mins I'd know if I had to lower anything. The 30 mins worked out good. Is there anything else I can adjust to make it more solid and ensure stability down the line. Thank you. I'm using ASUS M4A78LT-M LE. Thanks again.

Keep HT Frequency between 1800 and 2200, no benefit from having it higher.

Run occt a bit longer, at least and hour or two.

For further stability testing you can run Prime95, Intel Burn Test, and memtest86+. Prime95 and memtest86+ should both be run overnight. Also, I usually run OCCT CPU test for 3 hours. For borderline OCs you actually will see errors after the first hour.

What memory are you using ? Are you using the stock HSF ?

Max cpu temp for the C2 and C3 is 74c, keep it below 65c or so.. http://products.amd.com/en-us/Deskto...f10=&f11=&f12=

I ran it for an hour it held with 44 max for the temp. I think I'm good and safe here especially with the Stock HSF , what do you guys think?

It's 1333 ram.
