255 in bios should be perfectly safe, im just thinking more if your RAM doesnt like the few MHz more you will have to reset your bios vs just hitting the reset button on the case.
Then, I will give that a go!

255FSB in BIOS, w/ the looser timings you mentioned initially!

I.E.-> Trc/Trfc 12 or 16
Tras 8
Twr & Trtw 2
PCI Clock 101 (up to 105)

Most are done now, except for the Trc/Trfc being THAT loose (16 especially)...

Your saying that 285 isn't unrealistic (earlier on here or in the ScienceMark 2.0 thread) using them, which is GOOD, is something for me to try when it cools down tomorrow a.m.!

(Gonna beat Tigger69, lol!)

:)

* Thanks man!

P.S.=> Can't QUITE get to Tigger69's 1431, yet (wait until winter lol) & I am happy w/ my progress here in the ScienceMark 2.0 benchmark & stability tests here on these forums:

1390 -> 1401 -> 1414 -> 1423 -> 1426 -> 1428++...

IMO @ least - I'm not going to catch Tigger69 today, it's heating up outside by this point, but I am happy though & I think I am "peaking-out" as you say...

Tigger69's @ 1431, & now? I am ONLY 3 points behind, & I can live w/ that... lol! apk

shove a 20in box fan next to your comp w/ the side off we will forgive you as long as you beat those c2ds you and the opterons are the only ones who can come close (sry pd930 i think you are maxed out:( )

Here is my new and improved score, using tighter timings but I can’t seam to get my cpu pass 2.7ghz with my motherboard. My mainboard doesn’t post when I put my ram divider to 2:3(133 MHz) but when I put it to 5:6(166 MHz) it boots. It also doesn’t like it when I bring down the multiplier.

So for the time being my best results and best stability is at:
Cpu: 2700mhz @ 1.350
Motherboard: Htt 300, 3x
Ram: 245, 3-3-3-6-1T


Any tips on how to get a better OC would be greatly appreciated. Settings I got in bios are: Cas latency, Tras, Trp, TRCD, Trrd, Trc, Ma timings, burst length, bank interleaving, memory hole.

If you're speaking to me? Yea, that is about it...

When it's "COLD" tomorrow A.M. (around 6-7:30 a.m. or thereabouts)??

I'll try it again @ 255mhz FSB & see what happens...

:)

Why not, right?

Ambient temperatures have a LOT to do w/ it, imo @ least, because I am getting FAR better o/c's when it's colder outside!

("colder", as in compared to the heatwave & 100++ F days in temps lately)...

E.G.-> Today's around 70-80 F & it's perfect to try the higher o/c's & they're working now, & didn't in the 100++ F heated days, for certain not.

* I say that, because I tried 252-254 clocks in the heatwave 100 F days, & failed the ScienceMark 2.0 test, period (would stop completely & "Crash" disappear, or just start halting tests or showing WEIRD results)...

APK

P.S.=> One thing I'll like about winter again - I'll be able to o/c higher imo, just based on what I've seen so far in temperatures ranging from 58F -> 101F... apk

Know what?

That's cool & all (the competitive side) & I "get off" on that (for lack of a better term, lol) as much as the next guy I suppose also...

Heck, why not?

I like to see what I can put together vs. others (since this is a componentry assembling hobby basically) first of all...

However, more importantly/secondly & personally for me @ least??

:)

* Finding out where & how to o/c for more performance, AND find where your system is stable as well!

(Do this & imo? You really get to KNOW your machine, & @ what temperatures you can push + how far & with what settings!)

APK

P.S.=> Overall, so far?

WELL, by testing first w/ the ScienceMark 2.0 program, then Folding@Home console mode app using "-forceasm", & lastly playing Quake 4 SMP for as long as it will before messing up (which @ my highest OC so far, 254FSB driven one, it did after 5 minutes of play or so, twice now)?

I found that the 250-251mhz FSB range has been the MOST stable for me overall using an 11x multiplier, & I can run that as long as surrounding ambient temps stay below 85-90F (and beyond of course)... if the temperature around me goes higher than 85-90F, I will downclock if I do a heavy task most likely!

At that range, my system is ABSOLUTELY stable for ALL things by using 11 multiplier x 250-251 FSB = 2751-2772mhz CPU & 197-198/200mhz RAM... apk

Alec, you said a few days ago that this thread was dying, it look like it's back to life
Main question:
Wich are the recommended max temps for an ATHLON 3000+, and the max recommended voltage on air, and also the max temp. for the NFORCE 5 nvidia chipset, 'cause this thing runs hot 40ºc on Idle, if i put Watercooling on the CPU it will surely rise a bit more, and i don't want that

And i need a 100pts to beat JNT Raptor = 1334.32 (AMD ATHLON X2 3800+@2616mhz)
:( , tomorrow is overcloking day for me, gonna get a lot of fans :toast:
be afraid Raptor, be very afraid :p

Fear Is a great motivator.........Talks cheap though.......Lets Dance. :)

I'll be swapping out my 2gig kit for a 512 stick I have rated to 260Mhz.....and see what It does for me. :)

hey, my score of 1140 is entirely stock, i just tune everything up nice :p

as for increasing your score..give lots of details and ill pick things apart for u to try.
it is cooled by stock hsf but i have an heavyduty 80mm i can kinda strap on it (it is about 65-70cfm) my a64 is s754 and i have a machspeed k8m8ms (the most stable board ever) it is safe on the htt up to 976 (so far at least for the summer) my ram timings are in the pic so is everything else the hdd is a 60gb maxtor ata 133 (4mb or 8mb cache dont remeber) and as soon as i get a couple of $$$s i will be getting 2 sticks of ddr400 (512x2) nothing special just your standard ram (a stick of ultra and a centon 3.0-3-3-8 stock timings) but till then anything i can improve???
btw i have a ultra 4 bay case w/ 5x 80mm fans in it(3x 30cfm in 1x 30cfm out and 1x 65-70cfm out)

Well, I got "into it" again, for me personally, as far as overclock attempts but for GOOD reason: The weather was 'permitting'...

MAINLY because we had a "COLD DAY" today (75-80F, vs. the 90-101++ the last 2-3 weeks straight this summer)...

I figured I could "get more" outta my rig, & before temps rise again - just to "get a glimpse" of what my system CAN or MOST LIKELY WILL be like overclocked when Fall/Winter lower temps come into play...

(Homes I live in? They NEVER gets above 62F on the thermostat, simply because I don't like paying the bills for heat is why & I can always "bundle up" some etc. to compensate).

In the room where my PC is? There IS no heat here, lol, I blocked the ducts so they route better to another room (just temporary) - my PC truly IS MY HEATER in said room!

That said, I can always open a window in the fall/winter & make it colder than 62F ambient in here IF needed, but I doubt it.

That I am NOT an "expert" on, but I find that if I stay between 35-48C for my rig here (see signature for specs) it runs stable... maybe a bit more, but I have seen intensive apps like this test we are using "spike" the CPU core temps to 60C & beyond... not good that high!
