G'day, first post here <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
I currently have an FX-62 Dualcore cpu running on an Asus M2N32-SLi Deluxe motherboard. Using Ai Booster (that comes with motherboard) it has preset o/c settings. 110% is the max which takes the ghz per core to 3.08. How ever after a while of playing a game, my computer just freezes, I then need to reboot and reset settings in bios for my comp to work again. Is this a problem with my cpu not getting enough power? If so what should i set my Voltage/Multiplier/External Frequency/FSB too? Also am i better off doing this through bios?

its better to adjust things manually rather then use the auto overclock options and yes you probably need a touch more voltage. I can't help you with the settings because I haven't got the knowledge but I'm sure someone will be along shortly to help you out....hang in there!

You are much better off putting in the overclock through the BIOS. First put everything at stock. Now bump your multiplier up one notch boot into windows and test for stability. If that is stable take it up another notch. That is by far the easiest way to overclock the FX series. If it is unstable at those settings our you just want more power than can be attained through that post again here and I will give you some advanced overclocking help.

hi and welcome to oc.net, there are a few other people from the land down under on here too, so you will fit in fine.<br />
<br />
well done for filling your specs in aswell, most newbies forget that lol...<br />
<br />
right well in response to your questions, it is much better to overclock manually in the bios, it allows a higher and more stable overclock<br />
<br />
when you are under max load on both cores of the cpu, what is your max load temp? and what volts are you running?<br />
<br />
also what speed is your ram running at when its overclocked?<br />
<br />
all of the above can case unstable overclocks^^ <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

At the moment my whole computer is running at stock speeds<br />
<br />
CPU:<br />
Voltage: 1.42<br />
Multiplier: 14<br />
Ext Frequency: 200<br />
FSB:1000<br />
These r what they r normally (they keep changing a bit but thats normal isnt it?)<br />
As for Temp of my CPU i've never seen it go above 60c<br />
<br />
Memory voltage is 1.80<br />
Frequency is 401.9mhz<br />
<br />
Hope this helps?

</div>This right here means you have very little room to OC if any at all. I would suggest you get a new means of cooling (tuniq, bt, or water) before you try to get any higher.

</div>This was under an 110% o/c. Its prolly gone higher but i've never seen it higher when checking

you definitely need a new cooler, something that will keep your temps under 50c load, the above suggestions are the best about right now

Well for me, a w/c option is too expensive atm, what r the recommended fan solutions.<br />
<br />
BTW I upped my multiplier from 14 to 15, and it took my speed from 2.8ghz per core to 3.00ghz per core. Gonna leave it and see how it goes..<br />
<br />
Thanks again all for ur help <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

Big Tyhoon is probably the most common and sucessful fan cooler. <br />
<br />
Good luck with the oc, try using prime95 for checking stability

</div>Changes in FPS <60 are not discernable by human eye-sight, or so I have heard. Its not very suprising you didnt notice a huge increase in FPS, you would most likely see a larger increase if you overclocked your GPU as opposed to your CPU. Anyways, most games are CPU limited until you start running it at very high resolutions. That is most likely why you didnt see a huge increase in speeds.

Overclocking your cpu doesn't really affect your fps much, altough I'm sure it should increase a little bit. If you overclocked your graphics card you would definitely see a change

Download coolbits from here.....<br />

Its a registry entry that unlocks new options in the Nvidia Control Panel. You will see an overclocking option that has become available, click this and select "detect optimal settings" this will overclock your card.
