so got some parts ordered to replace my fried 2500k
so I hauled out my old Gigabyte AM2+ board with its Althlon II 250 and decided to see how much abuse it will take


keep in mind that that ram has ~4 years on it and it cost me 23.32 when I bought it :D
proc seems to have hit a wall at 3.4Ghz attempting to work around it but I think its the board holding it back we will see when my new AM3+ board gets here
w00t
Think I got 3.5@1.47v LOl
fking amd

its got no moar to give -.-
shitty sub 50 dollor gagabyte board .... I think
still 250 base clock on a 760G board is pretty decent lol
inb4firesplosion
I can boot at 3.7@1.44v but it insta crashes under prime -.- its gotta be the board throwing voltage at it doesn't help

SB voltage: 1.3
NB voltage: 1.250
CPU-NB-VID: 1.1150
vcore:1.375v
vdim 1.90v
clock:252X13.5(this board does not like high multis)

It's always the board that's holding you back. I made an athlon 245 athlon work at 4ghz(ish) on a GA-MA69G-S3H with cheap ram closing to 1100mhz at 5 5 5 18 timings. being an am3 cpu on an am2 motherboard, I couldn't even touch the voltage via bios; had to install easytune or whatever to increase vcore. The thing wasn't all that stable but I was able to run a few benchmark runs in games, 7zip etc. Huge fun these chips :)

Lower your ram divider and increase the CPU-NB-VID one step up.

I had that gigabyte 760G board that easily unlocked my PII X2 555 BE to X4 and clocked to 4 Ghz and highest stable HTT I saw was using a single core sempron around 285.

Just stick a fan on the VRM.

Set the CPU multi and ram multi to the lowest and find the max HTT that board can push.
