Same problem here.. my HDD gets 5.7 . Everything else is in the 7's.
WEI isn't much to go on anyway, its a poor way to judge your PC performance.
My i7 860 @ 3.5 gets a 7.3, but the Athlon II X4 OCed gets 7.2- that should tell you everything
The only way for that HDD score to go above 5.9 is with a SSD, I remember (I think) that even in RAID its maxes out at 5.9
Really... learn something new every day. I was wondering why even a SataII hdd only showed 5.7 score.
So my HDD is still kicking ass if i base on what youre telling me 16m cache 7200rpm is fast enough for my high demanding *cough* Battlefield 2 multiplayer
Lol... I see you started tweaking the multiplier instead. Should've done that from the very beginning.
3.9 is a nice OC, try for 4.0, that sounds a lot better.
Kan you should try it yourself instead of letting the others doing the job Mover your ass lazy wannabe overclocker lol
with the last result I posted compared to this one it sucks. Only the CPU score went up.
Game graphic 5.6
Hard drive 5.5
So I suppose that using the multiplier will boost up the cpu ok fine but the FSB will instead boost everything. Since the multiplier can be set on automatic ill leave it at auto and try to tweak the FSB and voltages of other stuff
I got 3785.7 on my phenom BE
What's the point in taking a gamble when I can be guaranteed a healthy overclock & twice the horsepower? The only point in overclocking is for performance (at least to me), why pay more for less when I can pay less for more?
Kantastic - What are your specs as to getting your Athlon II up to 3.6GHz (stable) ? I've only been able to get mine up to 3.25 (stable). When I try a higher clock it gets really unstable, that's even keeping the memory at 667MHz, HT @ 2000.
i hit around the same with my amd phenom 920 as a dual my board it dont like anything higher then 3750mhz
don't buy asrock its junk, just to give u all heads up
I'll PM them later tonight, a little lazy to boot up the other PC right now.
Post it here Kantastic.
Ok the best so far 220X 17.5 = 3850mhz cpu 1.456v 2640 htlink
880mhz memory nb 2640
IGP still at 1000mhz and 512megs
scores are 6.9-7.6-4.8-5.7-5.5
i can hit 2700nb aswell, 3700mhz qaud core 3.7ghz 1.4750v
Hey i have Same mother and same CPU. I could unlock 1 core (1-2-4) running at 3.1mhz. I put GPU core at 650. I just want to improve the GPU power. My question is, Did u modife anything from the mother??? like adding coolers? or u just set gpu core to 1000mhz with its originals parts??
Iam a bit scare of frying (burn it) the gpu core
And i cound get my single Kingstone 2gb ddr-2 1066 run at 1066mhz... even using 2.2v and setting it at 1066mhz windows crash while loading.. so i run them at 800mhz =/ any help here?
im always runniing it at 1000 keeping original parts but ifyou are afraid put it to 800 Update the bios tu be sure to get the latast one. it could help for ram cause its supposed to be ok since this mobo can go up to 1200mhzOC. But the problem is maybe the 2.2v ram. since you run them at 800 maybe it lower the voltage. not sure.
ok i will try it out at 1000mhz ! I updated the bios to lastest, but even though i couldnt set ram to 1066 stable. It crush as soon as it start loading windows 7 64 bits.
I want to play Hon on that computer, but i have to use 1680*1050 so its a bit tough for igp =/
I wouldnt call ASRock junk. they are a up and comming brand like ABIT did back in the day but i wouldnt call them junk. this 785 ASRock board i have OCed my 5600+ X2 way more than a DFI Lanparty 790FX board did on less voltage. also comes with ALOT of good features including 6 core support
It depends on which board you choose.
Drop your ram divider a notch and tighten the timings some. You will notice things will be a little bit more snappy.
Beg to differ my friend. My AsRock AMD board is rock solid. Ive had my X2 240 as high as 3.4ghz w/o problems. Also they have decent BIOS options too.
Edit: Courduroy Jr. We have the exact same board if I'm not mistaken. My X2 240 did 3.4 w/ the BIOS options for the CPU. For a $60 mobo there is nothing to really complain about.
true i shouldn't complaint, this board does provide alot of options for the price, anyways i bought a asus m4a785-m i am very happy with it, overclocks my P2 920 to 3.8ghz but turn it down to 3.7ghz 1.475v
should not of said junk, more like i got a bad board
