hey, i found my stuff...219 MHz, same with memory (sipprised, its crappy) and 1.7 volts...i think i might be able to drop this, but when i bump up my mulitplier i might need it. any suggestions on what settings??? if i go with 11.5, i should hit 2.6 gig...smokin!! hopefully not too hot

Hi, to start off i am a newbie at this. been reading the Overclocking guide and adviced me to download MBM to check on temp. well downloaded and installed. the questiion is that i am under temp. tap and it have 3 sensor
Sis950ate87osf-1,Sis950ate87osf-diode, Sis950ate87osf-2, Sis950ate87osf-2 diode, Sis950ate87osf-3, Sis950ate87osf-3 diode.. Any help on which is which?

HELP! I'm an L plater (newbie) to overclocking....and more. last nite I stupidly went about trying to overclock my AMD Athlon XP 2000+. Anyway I upped the part in BIOS that says FSB from 133 to 166 without doing any of the other necessities and of course now my PC is in GaGa land.When I boot up the display isn't displaying as in the monitor isn't powering up.And I can't figure out what to do! Anyone help this damnfool??

That is why it is important for overclockers to buy good PSUs.

Deathonator,you sir are my hero,if i had a sister i would send her to you with a pizza and a six pack>i've spent hours,days,weeks,almost 2 months now wondering what kind of sick joke my pc was playin on me.It had ITT smartguardian which i never trusted,then i got MBM5,here are my voltages(my vcore goes from 1.66 up to 1.77 and back and forth,no games fro me,very bad performance,yada yada. +-------------------------------------------------------------------------+

44,000 views...pretty impressive.

By the way, I never knew that increasing the chipset voltage may help overclocking. I'll have to try that out.

I can raise the chipset voltage +.3v

Is this safe to do?..I don't want to fry my chipset.

It depends on the motherboard, cooling, and what the V-stock + .3V ends up being. I'm not sure with your mobo, but you can try it and then feel how hot the heatsink on the NB gets, but that is not always accurate because sometimes the HS on the NB isn't making good contact (and they can get pretty hot under normal conditions anyways). So... make sure you do stability tests at your max chipset voltage with everything else (CPU, memory, FSB) under what you know it can do stabley, but have the FSB overclocked close to the max you KNOW is 100% stable. If you are less stable, then you need better cooling (better sink on the NB and sinks on the mosfets) or just settle on less chipset voltage.

Ok Death I read and saved your guide to my rigg and I must say to a noob like myself it is quite handy.But I still am haveing issues and I had posted this problem on the Operating System Forum and Shark and [email protected] gave me some help on it.But here is the situation I cant OC my CPU to anything above 2.25. I saw 2.3 for about 5mins then windows blinked and the rebooted so I upped the Vcore to 1.57 thinking that might help but alas it didnt any ideas why I have been trying every idea givin to me.

Either your CPU can't take 2.25ghz. Or your memory or motherboard can't take the FSB. You're kinda limited on finding out which it is if you're not able to change the multiplier.

Anyways, if there's any more room to up voltages ("safely"), do so and see if it helps. Otherwise, you just might be at your ceiling.
