    Overclock Help

    I'm looking to overclock my pc, however am getting really confused about when it comes to frequency, voltage DRAM timings and stability. (Near enough everything hahaha)

    I have no clue what I am doing apart from reading online what people have done, what to try etc.

    But then I read "do this and make it stable"... and I'm thinking.. How do I make it stable?

    Any help would be grateful

    Thanks

    Re: Overclock Help

    Well all i done with mine is increase the voltage slightly and increase the multiplier a few notches and i got got my Phenom2 from 3.4 to 3.8. all been stable since. i would try to go higher but not bothered.

    i would do some checking online for the make of motherboard that you have, and look for overclocking tips with the board. Overclocking is done via motherboard there are many ways to do it. some just OC there CPU and some do a lot more.


    to be honest, is 4.4Ghz not fast enough. are you finding issues with your setup????

    Re: Overclock Help

    I need to change that hahaha... It was 4.4Ghz but my CPU wouldnt go past 1.67Ghz... Thats been sorted and its now 4Ghz

    I was just wondering how to do correctly, so I understood everything and if I wanted to go up more or a friend wants it done or when I make another then I know how to do it

    Re: Overclock Help

    As you have a AMD, I would just up the voltage an incrament and add one to the clock multiplier.

    Re: Overclock Help

    Is the clock multiplier the one which starts at 100 and multiplies everything or in this case the one that starts on 40 and only ups the CPU speed?

    Probably an obvious one but better to be safe than sorry

    Also any ideas on RAM? currently mines at 2133 but im pretty sure I can OC it to 2400
