Hey guys, im not sure if this is the correct place to post this but i've been trying to overclock my system to reach better performance but no luck, im just new to it and i've overclocked the cpu from 1.80ghz to 2.10ghz *gets 80c or so while on 2.10ghz* idle im doing 54c "129F" and Motherboard its doing 30c "86f".
My system specs are as follow:
-Asus A7N8X Nvidia Nforce 2 Ultra 400
-AMD Athlon XP 2200+ (1.80ghz Without any overclocking)
-> CPU Frequency Multiplier: 13.5x
-> CPU External Freq (Mhz): 133Mhz
-> CPU Vcore : 1.600V
-> FSB Spred Spectrum: (Disabled)
-Corsair 512 MB DDR PC3200 400mhz
& Corsair 512 DDR PC2700 333mhz
-> Memory Timings: 6-3-3
-> SDRAM CAS Latecy: 2.5T
-> DDR Reference Voltage: 2.6V
-> Note: When system its rebooted at the post it says *133mhz Dual Channel *
-eVGA Geforce 6600GT 128DDR AGP8X (Modded with a CPU Fan, overclocked pretty high, around 540/1.04 or 1.4 not sure, note: i didn't touch voltage)
-> AGP 8X Support: (Enabled)
-> AGP VDDQ Voltage: 1.5V
-> AGP Fast Write Capability: (Enabled)
-> Video Ram Cacheable: (Disabled)
-> AGP Freq: (Auto)
-> Graphics Aperture Size: 64MB
-> AGP Spread Spectrum: (Disabled)
Note: after checking for all this information listed above, i im checking CPU Temp, MB Temp within the BIOS.
CPU TEMP: 72C/161F VCore:1.66V
Motherboard Temp: 30C/86F
Guys, if possible tell me whats the best i can do here to get nice performance in games, im testing this alot with Everquest 2 because i was currently doing 18-30 fps in the Performance Mode option in everquest 2's option menu. I was doing those FPS while my CPU was overclocked to 2.10ghz and my GPU to 570/1.15 (yes 1.15)... but recently i went down to 540/1.04 and back down CPU to normal clock speeds and im doing 18 - 28fps (almost exact SAME!!!)
Any ideas on how to overclock, i have a Intel Core 2 Duo 2.14ghz that my friend gave me, but no money to buy new Motherboard, PSU, Memory.......
Ideas pls, i will appreciate if you guys can help me out on overclocking this to reach at least steady 30fps not 18 - 25 (sloopy)..
