I hope i'm not srewing up

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Keep in mind i'm 100% new to overclocking as well as building computers. Until i can afford another, i'm using the stock heatsink and fan and have a 500w psu. I'm open to any helpful suggestions.

For a 200mhz jump, you probably don't need to increase the voltage on the processor, a .1 jump in voltage is quite a bit, it will also increase heat which you don't want with a stock heatsink. Also what are your temps under load in both circumstances?

You should be good at stock voltage for the OC. Also don't go out buying a new cooler expecting to get 3.7+. These chips are horrible overclockers compared to the Phenom II equivalents.

Yeah, way too much voltage. Don't increase voltage unless you have to.

Before overclocking, load temp was 63. After overclocking, load temp was 71.5. I didn't choose the voltages btw. I let my mobo's overclocker choose them. so, I should set the voltages back to standard, you are all suggesting? ok i'll give it a try.

It would appear i have to keeo the voltage. I adjusted the voltage back to the original and used occt to test it at 10% 9% and then back to 8%. The 10 restarted after 35 seconds without warning, the 9 gave me a BSoD after 145 seconds and the 8 froze/ went black after 3 mins then restarted itself

Could the problem be that my FSBRAM ratio was 3:10? I hadn't noticed it today til i took anotherlook at cpu-z. I tried to make it 1:1, but the best my bios allowed was 1:2.

your temps are wrong or your cooler isnt seated properly. try reseating it and see if your temps change. thats entirely too hot.

what temps should my comp be running near then?

Don't use the BIOS overclocking utility, overclock yourself.
61 is waaay too high for an AMD chip for stock, reseat your cooler.
