Hello. Help with geforce6100pm-m2 v2.0

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am new here and new with overcloking. I found that this motherboard is not good to overclock, but is the one I have. I also have a Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 2.0GHz.

What is the best I can do to increase the speed? Thanks
Can I get a reference to learn about overclocking?
Thanks

First of all, have you got an OEM (prebuilt) machine? Overclocking capabilities are often, if not always limited/restricted by OEM boards, so you can't really get any more performance out of the hardware you have.

If you built the machine yourself or bought it custom, well that's a completely different story smile.gif

Your BIOS should have options to change your base clock (FSB), CPU multiplier, and CPU voltage (VCORE). FSB x CPU multiplier is your final clock speed, so take your multiplier up before you have to take the FSB up. Once you've taken something up a little, boot into Windows (assuming it's stable) and run a stability tester such as Prime95 or Intel Burn Test for a few hours or so to confirm that it's stable with your settings.

Watch your temperatures while you're stress testing as well, you don't want them getting too high...

If you BSoD or get errors while running the test, then you'll have to increase the VCORE in the BIOS. This is where you need to be careful, raising it too much will generate excess heat. Please, please don't be one of those people who take it straight to something ridiculously high, lol. Increase the voltage in small amounts and test again, to see if it's stabilized. Keep going if you have too, just make sure your temperatures are fine.

the older these athlon x2s get the more heat they generate while OCing. If your cpu is more than two years old, I doubt that you will be able to gain more than or even equal to a stable 200Mhz increase. It will all depend upon your ambient temp and cooling solution.

Its actually not possible to provide proper instructions without knowing the mobo model and make. If possible also provide pictures of the bios screens (mainly cpu setting and advanced settings).

Thanks, I increased the CPU Frequency from 200 to 215. The K8 <-> NB HT Speed from auto to 4x and the DRAM clock value or limit form 400 to 533.

What is the best I can do? I will use water cooling. but I can't afford another mb or cpu for the moment.

Note this please:
-After I save and go to windows I still see the speed as 2.0GHz on the Mypc properties. Whats wrong?

-What application can I use to see the cpu temp on windows

-Thanks...

I added some pics

use cpuz to view the cpu speed. please lemme know if that too is showing 2ghz.
