Today I finished building my new comp. I am now running a AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400 BE.
So, I do my initial boot up, get into Windows with no problems, and check everything (clock speed, timings, etc.). So, I decide to do some OC'ing. Now I have been told that by simply taking the multi to x16 (from x14 stock) will put me at 3.2 with no problems. Most said they didnt even have to do a volt increase. So I move it to 16, and reboot into Windows. I get a BSOD.
So, I figure, needs more volts. I take the volts to 1.35, and again restart. This time I get into Windows and start checking my timings, volts, temps, etc. Comp goes good for about 6-8 mins then restarts.
So, where am I going wrong here? Should I move the volts higher? Is a X16 multi too much?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
