    AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 'Venice' Overclocking

    If you've already got a decent S939 motherboard on your hands it would be almost criminal not to try an Athlon 64 3000+ E3-stepping CPU. Sure, it's not hugely fast at default speeds, but I'd be amazed if 2.5GHz wasn't a given and 3GHz on the cards with better cooling. There's just something rather naughty but nice about 50% overclocks with near-default voltage. For once, you can have your cake and eat it! Yum.

    yeah so does mine when I set it to 1.6 in bios

    only a Winchester that does 285+ in my Shuttle which I thought was more than adequate, but these low voltage Venices are proving hard to ignore

    the review says it is a standard amd cooler which it isn't (amd don't do heatpipe coolers except fx series). So on top of £110 ppl, add another £20 for cooling!

    I also opted to use a reference AMD Athlon 64 FX-5x heatpipe-driven cooler. The idea of this test is to see how high the sample would clock to without the use of esoteric cooling.
    Tarinder says what cooling he uses.

    I did wonder how an Arctic 64 Freezer would compare to the cooling used in the test. Any idea how it'd compare?

    OK this is definitely on the stock AMD cooler for the moment on my newly acquired s/h MSI K8N Neo2.



    Still got a lot more to do (new BIOS to get used to).
    1 thing I noticed is that Tarinder says he got his high overclock at 1.54V but CPU-Z screenie shows 1.4V. On mine it's at 1.4V in BIOS but CPU-Z shows 1.44V
