My very first OC! x2 560BE

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My very first attempt at overclocking ever!
Admittedly it is a bit weak but it is stable on 3.5GHz so ill stay there until i get my new CPU!



Suggestions please!

I would try pushing it further.... I just picked up a 555BE X2 about a week ago and was surprised at how well these CPUs OC.... I went straight for the 20x multi and just worked on the voltage for a few minutes to get it stable (1.45V) 30Cidle 48Cload on Air. I haven't had time to mess with it since, but I plan on pushing it as far as it will go.

I say go for it, you've already found stability in this speed so if you don't succeed in going any further just record your current settings and you can always go back to it.

Keep us posted on your progress.

Will do, thanks! might try the 20x like you just to see ;D

On a side note, which other settings should i be changing? i have only changed the multiplier at the moment.

Here's a very good thread to help you learn how to OC the right way http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ing-guide.html plus it gives you a good path to follow.

Ideally you may want to raise the HTT from 200MHz to 250MHz (after you study the thread) which will increase over all performance. Also try raising the NB Freq to 2600-2800MHz and maintain the HT Link Speed to 2000MHz (+/- 100MHz). After that you can look into OC'ing the ram as well.

It takes a little time and some studying, with lots of testing but hey, that's what it's all about. Be careful, it easily becomes an addiction lol.

try 4ghz with 1.46volts (good chance of failing at this voltage). then try 1.48volts (good chance this will be enough), if it doesn't work, try up to 1.51volts. do this just through the multi, to eliminate ram overclocking and NB overclocking instability issues. if you can maintain stability at 4ghz, then start over with FSB OCing rather than just through the multiplier. the above will give you a good idea of how strong your chip is. i have several 555s and 1 is very weak (4ghz @ 1.51volts and struggling vs two 555s that do 4.2ghz @ 1.46 volts).
