Interested in Ocing my setup and recently just purchased a Thermaltake Aquarius III External Liquid Cooler to handle my temps because of the high heat issues with the FX-53. My Specs are as follows:

MSI NEo2 Platinum Nforce3 Ultra
Athlon 64 FX-53
OCZ 2x512 PC3500 Dual Channel
Geforce 6800 GT OC 256GDDR
520w OCZ Powerstream PSU

Cpu Idle: 29.7c
Cpu under load: 41.3c (Farcry, Doom3 runs at 43.7c tops so far

tinkered with the bios alittle and tried to set the different levels (Private, Sergeant, etc....) but never even got into windows, and had to reboot. would be interested in any and all help to see how far I can push this setup.

thnx

Welcome to the forum!

I moved your post from the Folding at Home section to the AMD General section, should get more hits here.

First off...wow...nice setup!

I think the Aquarius will give you some overhead with the overclocking...

I'd like to mention that most BIOS based overclocking utilities (such as your sgt, etc..) aren't very good at all.

Check out the AMD Overclocking Guide

Hello.... glad to see someone else with a FX-53....

I've currently running @ 2.6Ghz (12x217) which is stable. And I'm also testing 12x222 at the moment.

First of all, I suggest you update the BIOS to version 1.3

Hey Zeus if you could give me your exact adjustments that you made in the Bios that would be sweet. I moved my FSB to 216 and my core to 3.3%(first yellow setting) have it running at 2592.02 MHZ as per WPCUID.

Also have my Bios at 1.3
