My New Athlon 64 3200 Overclock

Well you can read my specs below. I am running stable at 2.79GHz, 310x9. This is soooo much better than my 2.5GHz overclock on my "old" Athlon XP 3000+. The speeds are just unreal and all at only 1.6vcore, these Athlon 64's just amaze me.

 

I got all my new parts this past friday and I spent the whole night trying to find that sweet spot. I actually got it to run stable at 2.83GHz but I had to clock my memory down to DDR200 speeds and it hurt it's bandwidth a bit. But at 2.79 I got it right where I want it. Anyone else want to share your Athlon 64 3200+ overclock?

nice oc :D

 

my 3200 winchester got up to 2.75, then it dropped to 2.64... then i moved house and it died altogether haha...

 

my 3500 venice can do 2.92ghz on the ultra-d and 2.8 on the neo2... you got a bigger %oc than me with your venice dude...

 

btw... 2-3-4-5??? have you tried 2-3-3-6 or 2.5-3-3-7 or 2.5-4-3-7?

 

having trp bigger than trcd and then a tras of only 5 looks totally wrong to me... probably why your ram can't oc.... timings

I actually tried 2-3-4-6 and it was still causing me problems. I'll try the 2.5-3-3-7 timings tomorrow, that looks promising. I am still amazed at how high my clock kept going and going until it froze on me after about 5 minutes of usage at 2.83GHz.

 

Oh, and I looked EVERYWHERE for your Thermalright SLK-948u heatsink (in your sig), but I couldn't find an online store that sold it anymore. I absolutely loved my SLK-900 that I used on my Athlon XP 3000+, and I wanted a similar one for my socket 939 processor, those SLK heatsinks are the best IMO. I settled for the XP-90c and I couldn't be happer though. I also almost went with the Neo4 board but price of course kept me out of that range of boards. I was skepticle of using the ABIT boards because i've been a loooong time ASUS user, but with the problems of the chipset fans plauging users (including my best friend who lost his MB because of the fan dying) I went with the ABIT AN8-SLI and its great. Thanks for the advice.

i never set the trp higher than the trcd (4 and 3 above)

 

i don't think it works.. at least not on the a64's... i'd suggest the following in order of preference:

 

2.5-3-3-6

2.5-3-3-7

2.5-3-3-8

2.5-3-3-9

2.5-4-3-7

2.5-4-3-8

2.5-4-3-9

2.5-4-4-7

2.5-4-4-8

2.5-4-4-9

what cooling are you using for your A64? becuase 1.6 isnt nice, then again i got lucky because i accidently set mines to 1.86 vcore and literally benched it for 10min and realized what i did and shut it off immediately. 1.55 should be good enough for venice.

I'm using the Thermalright XP-90C for cooling. Worth EVERY penny!!! I turned the vcore down to 1.575, so far so good.
