Just wanted to say thanks to everyone (espesially The Duke) that answered all of my questions. My Sempron is running just over 2ghz and will prime all night. I never thought I would ever read an entire BIOS manual. Now I am off to learn more about memory timings.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/4/4f/4f48e949_vbattach33315.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616986/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

Congrats on the 11% overclock! <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

Ok, let's set a goal. <a href="http://rigshowcase.com/img/712KYzN/1498.jpg" target="_blank">You can do it!</a><br />
<br />
Haha that was *not* stable...just me having fun with my hardware. This is a more practical goal (in this ballpark, that is. I don't know if that winchester will make it. It's an old core): <a href="http://rigshowcase.com/img/712KYzN/1430.jpg" target="_blank">24/7 Stable</a><br />
<br />
If you have any questions, ask...you know the drill, apparently: Read, OC, Read, Buy stuff, OC, Buy stuff...lol

I can already see a new mobo and memory out thee on the horizon... but not till I'm sure I have gotten everything I can from all of this. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

OK...<br />
<br />
You said to ask questions, so here I go. Below is a quote from the bios manual. Deals with not being able to boot after a clock/voltage change.<br />
<br />
"CPU CLOCK<br />
This item allows you to select CPU Clock, and CPU over clocking<br />
Special Notice:<br />
If unfortunately, the system’s frequency that you are selected is not<br />
functioning, there are two methods of booting-up the system.<br />
Method 1:<br />
Clear the COMS data by setting the JCOMS1 ((2-3) closed)) as “ON”<br />
status. All the CMOS data will be loaded as defaults setting.<br />
Method 2:<br />
Press the <Insert> key and Power button simultaneously, after that<br />
keep-on pressing the <Insert> key until the power-on screen showed.<br />
This action will boot-up the system according to FSB of the processor.<br />
It’s strongly recommended to set CPU Vcore and clock in default setting. If the<br />
CPU Vcore and clock are not in default setting, it may cause CPU or M/B damage."<br />
<br />
I have been plagued by the bios resetting to default as I have tried to work my way up in clock speed. I am beyond where I was able to go by using the <insert> key when rebooting. Temp is 20C and it is running prime 95 with no errors.<br />
<br />
Does anyone know what the insert key disables or ignores? If there is a feature I could disable instead of using the insert key I would like to do that instead.<br />
<br />
Thanks

sempron's overclock like crazy. since thats a s939 90nm version i wouldnt be surprised if you hit 2.4ghz stable on stock voltage...

Funny you should say that....<br><br>
I just ran out of room on the FSB (limited to 232MHZ). Gotta let it PRIME 95 overnight, but I think I ran out of motherboard before anything else. Good thing there is a good power supply and opty sitting here. I thought I would be waiting on a new project a bit longer than this.<br><br>
Time to surf mobos and cases.

A Opty you say <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Whether it be a 949 or 940, a good and inexpensive MB made by Biostar... <b>T</b>Force 6100-939 or <b>T</b>Force 6100 AM2 are good OCers.<br>
The 939 series has run over 300MHz on the CPU bus for some members. Once I get off my but and start working on my TF 939 I'll know more about them, that which will replace the EP-9NDA for folding <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">. Make sure it's the "<b>T</b>Forge" and not the "<b>G</b>Force".<br>
There are other fine MB out there, those two are not SLI capable but still very good and inexpensive, about $70-75.

The opty arrived yesterday as did my ebay turbo cool PSU. I think I even managed a good stepping (CCBBE 0610DPMW). Thats what got me to thinking a new mobo would be needed. A 232 FSB is not going to push very hard on the opty. What is the general opinion on the heatsink/fan AMD ships with the processor?<br />
<br />
For right now I am pleased to have learned enough about my bios settings that I can run the FSB up without the bios resetting. Now I am going to work on the memory and see where I can push it to.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/c/c3/c35028a9_vbattach33396.bmp"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616928/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

</div>Best stepping out there, expect some massive overclocks, i see 3.0 in your future if you get a nice board.
