Any Ideas for OC-ing this?


Recommended Posts

ok in 2-3 days Ill have this back from shop and running Win XP Pro SP2 (with updates

and (if NOT 1603 BIOS it will be)...I'm relatively new overclocker...and definitely

a LOW budget one. Although in Aug 2008 I plan on SLIing 2 8500GT's



ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard


AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane 2.6GHz Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Black Edition Processor


ZALMAN 9500A 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler 45 CFM at 27db (full speed)


CORSAIR XMS2 (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX


EVGA 256-P2-N758-TR GeForce 8600GT SSC 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card


WD 36GB 10,000rpm Raptor SATA ....... Seagate 80GB 7200rpm SATA


Lite-On LTR-52246S CD/RW ....... Lite-On LH-18A1P CD/DVD Burner


PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Quad (Black) EPS12V 750W


ViewSonic G90FB Black 19" CRT Monitor


2x 80mm Intakes in front ........ 2x 80mm Exhaust in rear ....... 80mm Exhaust in left side panel


Generic (long) Mid Tower Case



Any ideas would be appreciated :)

SLI'ing two 8500GTs will be like using one 8600GT. Ok, that was a wee bit exaggerated, however it's really not worth it! If you want to upgrade your video card(s), buy a single 8800GT(S) and call it a day!


As for overclocking, read the Overclocking FAQ posted in the overclocking section by Verran, that should help you out :)

my bad , I mean't 8800GT's (the 512mb ones)


anyways what i wanna know is if any1 has similar board and CPU and has OC'd it I've heard that on GOOD air cooling 3ghz to 3.2ghz is possible outta this chip. The board apparently is an overclockers board also. Ill be using the ASUS 1603 BIOS (which I havent even seen yet :) Parts arrive tomorrow!! I want it running fast as possible...without voiding warranty or shortening lifespan of components. The AMD 5000 (black edition) is supposed to do this.
