    Got a few questions...

    My mom's going to be away for a short while, so I figured I would try to overclock her pc. She's got a socket a machine with a gigabyte motherboard (supposedly one of the better ones... don't know the model off hand) and a Sempron 3000+. On the page with the overclocking features, I see normal, turbo and manual mode for overclocking. I throw it into manual and can raise the fsb in 1mhz incriments (I was at 180fsb). There's also an option to control the RAM speed (I had it running at a 1:1 ratio and it's ddr 400, so there's no question here). There was also an option to control the AGP speed. There's normal, 50mhz, 66mhz, then 1mhz incriments from there. I know that some boards lock frequencies and some don't, but AGP frequency is 66MHz and I manually set it to 66MHz from that option. Problem is... there's these weird wavy lines that go across the screen... they appear to be sweeping across diagonally from top left to bottom right. It's kind of like watching waves or ripples in the water. This only happens when I push the FSB... at normal settings, it doesn't do this. I verified that the monitor was fine by bringing my laptop to it and hooking it up... no wavy lines.

    Everything seems to be fine except these wavy lines. I used OCCT to test stability for a few hours (I did about 2.5 hours stability testing) and it was fine... but these wavy lines are bothering me. It seems like a hint of trouble... something isn't right somewhere. I thought video card, but the AGP bus is locked at 66MHz in the BIOS, so pushing the FSB shouldn't affect it. What could be causing these wavy lines, and what can I do about it? I would really like to push this thing a bit farther for the cause...

    have you tried going back to default to see if they go away? Just to confirm it's the overclock.

    Try setting it to 50mhz. If that doesn't work you have a weak phase for the chipset or not strong enough psu. There is another solution to overclocking that sempron but it's quite risky. Multiplier unlocking.

    Could that possibly be the awesome Socket A! The wonders of pencil modding to unlock the multiplier re-lived! Those were fun times :toast:

    More than just a pencil with Sempron socket A chips, involves a razor blade also. Essntially turns them into a MP capable mobile chip, but the mod only works on VIA and a few nForce boards.

    Ah, OK. I remember with my XP 2800+ I drew a thick line with pencil and covered it with sellotape (i didn't know much back then). Worked though :laugh:
