With stock voltage?!
on both cpu and chipset
though the 3000+ was on a 6x multi 6x300=1.8ghz
Just jumped in.Since this is the OC thread I'll post my two stable OCs in the sole intention that it would help someone out there.
939 AMD Athlon64 3200+ Venice 1.4V,2X512MiB Kingston Value RAM DDR400 3-3-3-8 1T,MSI K8N Diamond Plus,all stock cooling
10x266=2660,1/2 Divider,HT @ 3X
10x250=2500,1/1 Divider, HT @ 4x(my fav)
Got my 3800+ Venice to 2.7 GHz.
10 x 270
245 MHz on DDR 400
I was very impressed with this chip. Even before this OC and my Zalman I was able to get it to 2.6 GHz on the stock cooler, although it was done by raising the FSB a mere 17 MHz.
We need more of these results so people don't have to keep on guessing whether the OC will work or not.
That is an excellent idea, both of you. I will make a thread on it.
A64 3000 @ 2.6Ghz
325 x 8
DDR running at DDR440.
A64 X2 4200 @ 2.8Ghz
280 x 10
DDR running at DDR466

How about for DDR533?
How about what for DDR533 hat?
the speed you're supposed to drop it to
DDR2 400 is what you drop it to.
My board does it automatically. It sure is a gem... I basically got DDR433 instead of DDR533.
Actual speed is 216 from 260... not that such a small decreace matters with memory... it's well worth it for over 200MHz on the CPU
my 4000+ does this easy
hits 3 ghz stock vcore
maxes out on air @ 3.2 ghz
runs 2.9 ghz 24/7/365
Here's mine: http://www.diy-street.com/forum/showpost.php?p=735396&postcount=417
X2 4400+ @ GGG
3.14 ghz, 1.48 vcore, runs for near two-hundred hours on orthos stable.
I know there hasnt been any activity in this thread for about 2 weeks, but I thought it would be best to post here. I have never overclocked before and am going to be recieving an MSI k8n neo2 platinum to go along with my AMD 64 fx-57 and 2 gigs of ocz dual channel memory ddr400 pc3200. Its supposed to be pretty good memory though as it is the EL Platinum edition Rev.2 w/ramsink with timings of 2-3-2-5. With the combination of parts I have whats the best way to start, I really dont wanna fry any of my equipment and am not looking to get crazy overclock, 3.1 would be perfect on air, but I would settle for 3 i guess, if its 2.9 ghz then i might as well leave it at stock (2.8).
Essentially, if you follow the guide here, it will get you what you need.
Drop the ram down to 166MHZ, then up the FSB a bit, see if it will post. I highly doubt you will fry the system.
I agree with JC but a better than stock cooling kit makes a huge difference in overclock capability and for the socket 939 relatively cheap.
If you're buying that new, return it and get a current core Athlon X2 AM2 (at least). That processor is a bit on the old side if you ask me.
My Sempron can overclock 400MHz. Try looking higher. Just follow JC316's advice. Drop the memory to 166FSB (DDR 333) (5/6 divider) and start pushing your FSB up 2-5 FSB at a time. When you can't boot into Windows (or can't boot at all), go down 5-10 FSB and start doing stress tests and benchmarks. I'd definitely look in to aftermarket cooling. Overclocking makes your processor run very hot. This does two things. One, it limits your overclock. And Two, it decreases the life of your processor. $40 is worth the extra performance (not to forget to keep your processor from turning into a crispy paperweight).
There's always more you can do to tweak some extra FSB out, but just take it one step at a time.
AMD processors are also power hungry and will heat up as you bump your V-core.
Always watch your temps and never bump it up over 1 setting at a time.
I am running a chip that is designed to run at 1.35 at 1.5 but that is pushing it even under liquid. there is a point where bumping the V-core even if it is staying cool will no longer be useful and shorten the life of your processor due to leakage. Thus using Orthos, super PI, Prime, Sciencemark and Memtest can ensure stability in your system. BSOD=Bad and can lead to data loss including the need to do a full format on occasion. *Thus losing everything you have ever saved*
thanks, ill start right when i get my system and let you guys know, I cant belive i got so many responses in jus a few hours thanks. The reason for the fx-57 is because it has been sitting in my closet since summer06 (never had a motherboard to go with it). Bumping the ddr to only 333 instead of 400, isnt that slowing my ram down at the expense of upping my cpu?
so i noticed on the thread it says for 754 socket mobo the ht should never go above 800 now i have one comp on an dfi lanparty ut 250 gb with a firstname.lastname@example.org ram at 400 and ht at 975 with no volt bumb and ive been runin that computer 24/7 for about 3 years and i have never experienced any problems am i just lucky or with the right 754 mobo is the higher ht speeds ok
Not at all because as you increase your FSB it will raise your HTT. You never want to raise your HTT above 1000 so you drop your RAM multiplier to compensate for increased FSB.
Get CPUZ to watch your clock speeds and your HTT.
