Hey guys i finally got my 3000+ to o.c a bit it woulnt go past 220 so i put it to 240 and it boots fine , now im at 250 on stock air and stock heat compound, am i safe speed fan says "Temp 1:25 , Temp 2:27 and Temp 3:70, but temp 3 has always been 70 so i dont really mind it. Is this safe to stay at and my HTT is 3x it wont boot at 4.

As far as the CPU is concerned, it can go WAY higher than that. I'm not familiar with your board though, so I don't know if your mobo will take it much higher :-/

if your motherboard allows you to increase the vcore (cpu voltage) to 1.65v as a maximum, then you should be good to go.
You can get that chip close to 2.6ghz.
Another major concern is if the mobo is stable with higher FSB(HTT) speeds...having it stable at 300 would be ideal.
What are your settings currently?

FSB
multi
divider
vcore...etc

havent touched anything else on memory or cpu
i think my motherboard allows me go up to 1.7? i might be wrong though


looking good, great board, depending on the bios rev, the core volt selections go up to 1.7, with an additional option for up to +.3v though you sholdn't need/want more then 1.8 for anything...

fredster, lets go for 2.4ghz. I will also post an overclocking calculator that you will find useful for calculating overclocks, dividers, etc....here we go..

267 x 9
vcore 1.5-1.55 (try 1.5 first) These are safe voltages, not harmful.
HTT x 3 (HTT doesn't have affect on performance, it needs to be set for stability)
Memory divider 166
Memory voltage 2.7-2.8 (these are safe)
Memory timings default (you need to post a link to your memory, I dont know what you have)

This should be it, try the 1.5 vcore first, then increase to 1.55 if it isn't stable.
It also could be your memory that cannot run at the quicker speed, you could always use the 133 divider just to make sure it's only your cpu that could be the cause of instability. please post a link or tell me the default timings and everything you can about them.

Here's the overclocking calculator.....this should all work if your memory is halfway decent...

yes, that's good. What did you do differently this time? Did you figure out what you were setting improperly?

The voltage I recommended is completely safe (1.5-1.55)....I doubt your temperatures would even break 50c under load. You should be monitoring them while running prime95...next step is going for 2.5ghz.
