Athlon 64 3000+ Abit AV8

Archived from groups: alt.comp.hardware.overclocking.amd (More info?)

Hi,

I want to oc an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ with the Abit AV8 Motherboard. I want
to know if I need DDR500 to do that or is my Infineon DDR400 2x512MB ok to
speed up the cpu from 1,8GHz to 2,4 or 2,5MHz?
I have a Winchester CPU....

Thx for any help...

    Your current ram is fine as long as you don't try to run it in sync.
    IOW's, set you base ram speed to 133MHz manually before you start raising
    the system bus. You'll also need to lower the HT speed 1 or 2 notches, and
    probably raise vcore if you hope to get that fast.

    Wes, he has a Winchester -- they often can do 2500 on 1.5v. Mine needs just
    a tad more.

    PS: I'm feeling so smart after starting in here knowing almost nothing, and
    now having 2 overclocks under my belt :-))

    my 3200+ in AV8 3rd eye (v1.1)is doing 2340(9x260) at 1.5V,and will do
    2430(9x270) at same volts.RAM is Corsair XMS3200(1x512MB) .I've set the ram
    divider at 333, so its doing 5/6 of 260=216MHz at CAS2.5(Will also do 225).
    The HT multiplier is set at 4.That's basically it
