I've OCed my computer from ..

STOCK: Athlon 64 3200+ 2.2 GHz
2x512 MB Corsair XMS PC3200 (3-3-3-8)
CoolerMaster eXtreme Power Dual 380W

to...the STABLE system that passed the OCCT Stability test

FSB: 230 MHz
LDT/FSB : x3
CPU/FSB : x10
DDR/FSB : 9/10
vcore at 1.5 ram at 2.63v
temp from 43 (Idle) to 51 (100%) because I'm living in Vietnam bro. !!! the weather is quite hot

=========> now the OCed system is on the photos CPU-Z

If I want to keep using this OCed system for a long time...
What should I do to keep it safe ?? and..should I keep using an OCed system

Yippers got yourself cranked and stable--just keep an eye on the temps--a few weeks/months down the road the case might start collecting some dust which is not so bog a deal at stock settings--but cranked to the edge a little heatsink crud makes a big difference--congrats.

By the way I have had my PC OCed since I built it--usually at 4.09 ghz which will be about a year coming up this Feb. No probs.

Hmmm... I'd get a better power supply, as I don't think that 380W will suffice for the long run.

to really be sure your system is stable you should also run prime95 overnight.

you psu wont ever be ther problem unless you upgrade, because you systems specs aren't that demanding... as for help, i say trying you oc with you RAM at a divider of 1/1 instead of 9/10 i think youRAM should handle it...if not try uping you volts to about 2.8 or 3.0 on you ram this will give you an exptra preformance boost on your computer...i also have to tell you that this is very VERy safe..this is a very small overclock, and i think if oyu want to see some boost in your preformance you should oc a lil...strike that, a LOT mroe then what oyu have.. if you have any problems just post and ill watch this thread so i can help

I 've already try the FSB at 240 MHz to get the speed at 2.4 GHz and HTT at 1440 MHz ----> unfortunately it didn't pass the OCCT stability test.

I'm about try the FSB at 220 Mhz and CPU/FSB at x11 to get 2.4GHz---->God bless my CPU

Its your 1440 HTT thats the problem. Put your HTT at 4X and crank the chip slowly up to 250 with a 10X multi. You shouldnt have to touch the voltage unless you want to go over 2500mhz. Your temps should stay about the same. My X2 4400+ started at 2.2 ghz and I didnt need to up the vcore till after 2.5ghz. Right now I have it at 2640mhz with a vcore of 1.41 on air and my wife keeps our house hot. I never have temp problems. Your RAM should be able to handle a 250fsb at a 1:1 setting and if it doesnt just add a bit of voltage to it but I wouldnt sugest going over 2.7v just to stay safe.

So in short try these settings. RAM 1:1, HTT 4X, FSB 250, Multi 10X, lower your Vcore to 1.45. Raise your RAM voltage to 2.65 or 2.7.

Your CPU will run cooler on these settings and much faster. All these settings are safe, the worst that can happen is you wont be able to boot into windows and in that case just set everything back. Nothing lost, nothing broken. Get back to me with the results.

thx for your advice, but...I'm using Athlon 64 3200+ soc 754 NewCastle ----> so FSB 250 MHz and HTT x4 will burn my PC

HTT x 3 and you will have to increase the vcore very slightly, try 1.525. It should be stable at 2.4 with that adjustment
