Oc Qs On An Amd 2400+ Tbred


Recommended Posts

I am currently overclocking my system from a 2400+ (2.0 Ghz) to hopefully a 3000+ or beyond. Right now I'm at 2.130 Ghz with a 142 FSB (starting from 133 Mhz, since the supported FSB on the proc is 266) and i was wondering before i moved on how to achieve the agp/pci speeds (since this motherboard doesn't come with a pci/agp lock) What are the multipliers/dividers?

 

Also, How can you accurately compare your system's final clock to an AMD rated one? a 2.130 doesn't sound like a huge jump, but i did some SiSoft Sandra tests and found that i beat both the Arithmetic and Multimedia benchmarks of a 2800+! Does that mean I'm rated at 2800+ or 2900+?

 

I've posted the SiSoft Sandra picture as proof

 

One last thing my temperatures idling are 39 Chassis / 46 CPU. Is it just me or does that sound too hot? I ran Prime95 for a few minutes and found my cpu temperature skyrocketing to 52 C fully loaded! I've got 2 antec fans in the back drawing air out of the system, along with a 450 PSU with dual fans drawing air out as well. I've put one fan in the front drawing air in, but it may not be enough. What do you guys think? too high temps?

 

I appreciate this guys thanks :)

52c is still safe, but you need to run prime 95 for like 24hrs straight to ensure a stable overclock. Make sure you have the proper cooling, the most important bing the heatsink and fan you may want to invest in a volcano 12, use artic silver 5, run prime and let it run, after the 20-24hrs if there is no errors than you have a stable overclock and you can then take it up some more.... :foldon:

in ur sig, that 2.6 what fsb? is that stable or just maybe where u ran benchmarks from or max oc?

I was able to get my 3000 to 250 fsb, also 2.66 ghz, but needed 240fsb to run stable.

3000 is on ebay at the moment, just got 2600m, to go along with my 2nd rig which runs the 2400m

That 2400+ should be able to go pretty far...do you know your stepping? I had an AIUHB stepping 2400+ and my highest stable overclock was 215 x 11 - 2365mhz. I could get into windows as high as 2.5, but it wasn't stable even with 1.9V.

 

Can you adjust the multi on your cpu? I'm not sure if that board can change the multi....some Via chipsets can do it, most can't....but see if you can. If you can, then I would lower your multi and put your fsb right to 166 (that would keep your agp/pci dead on the proper speeds) and then raise the multi to increase the clock speeds....but that's all dependant on being able to change the multi.

The 266 FSB is the stock FSB i began running at, since the 2400+ is designed to run at 266 (133 x 2). This motherboard (Soyo mATX K7VME) was part of a deal i recently got that allowed me to get this chip at an EXCELLENT price. I plan on soon upgrading to an ABIT NF7-S when i get the chance *cough money cough*.

 

This motherboard only allows for FSB overclocking, which doesn't make it a good overclock motherboard. It also doesn't take advantage of my beautiful RAM too :(

 

The main questions i asked in the original thread were mainly for future reference, as i don't know much about overclocking in general. But to answer your questions, the max FSB i could reach was 142 (142 x 15), and even then the picture would occasionally quit (I'm guessing AGP overrun?) but i'm not quite sure.

 

Thanks for all replies, however. I'll post questions as they come up when i receive the new motherboard :typing:
