I need help to overclock 3600+ brisbane to 2.8 ghz or more, I planning to use G.Skill 2bg 4-4-4-12 DDR2 800mhz, Biostar mobo 550 chipset. For cooler tower like Scythe SCINF 1000 - 120 mm fan. I making an upgrade from 939 and my video card is Sapphire 1900 XTX and me hd are SATA II Wested Digital SE 16 160gb and 250 gb.

Thank for the help

Hi logainofhades, I believe you posted information about your X2 3600+ overclock but can't seem to find it. Could you please show us where it is?
March 25, 2007 3:32:07 AM

Here ya go. It is weird I was looking up my cpu the other day on yahoo just to see if maybe there were some other reviews out on it and did a search and just put in x2 3600+ brisbane and lo and behold my post about my overclock was the first search result. Definitely a first for me. Not sure if I should feel honored or what. :lol:  Anyway, if you have anymore questions feel free to ask.

Thx logain. I see you've developed a quite a reputation on account of this OC. You deserve it. :)

I hit a wall at 2.74 Ghz

I could post and make it past the splash screen at 2.9 @ 1.4vCore...

I am a weenie, so that is as far as I go with the vCore. I am also on stock cooling so I run it at around 2.6Ghz normally. (Idle around 35 degrees) unless I am benchmarking...

I agree.

This is my first ASRock board and thus far, I love it!!! The AMD crossfire chipset is nice, and runs cool without a fan. It is very very stable and the ASRock support is top notch. Say what will, but I may become an ASRock fanboy for AMD boards... lol :p 

I'm not an extreme overclocker anyway. I do what I can on stock cooling and a borderline budget/gamer board and leave it at that. IMO paying $30 more for a board and 25-30 for a better cooling solution just isn't worth 100-200Mhz

logainofhades watitng for my brisbane, I took your explanation and implement some in my actual amd 64 4000+ and is amazing for me look 2700 ghz in a 2 years old procesor and for new guy in oc.

I need to read more for go for it in my new brisbane core. I confuse a little with the cpu volt. I take another my another cpu a 3500+ and post 2.6 ghz in MSI K8N Platinum, but I need to put a 1.475v from 1.40v original.

Got mine to 2.7 easy with stock volts, temps were mids 20s only played with it for a few hours before I had to RMA a bad stick of ram. Hopefully everthing returns next week cant wait to see how far it goes.

good info here
and here

I need to mess with my HTT some more to see what I can get.

What is your RAM divider set too? With my overclock, the best I can do with the Ram is 363Mhz (VERY tight timings though)

I too have/had a 3000+ Orleans. What a good little processor. On my ECS board I had it at 2.5Ghz too! I even UNDERVOLTED it. It ran great, but the ATI chipset wouldn't let me go any higher.

I'm also planning to buy an AMD x2 3600 brisbane and OC it. Where I live there's no online shopping and limited boards. The only decent board i found was this

Do you guys think the MSI K9A Platinum board could OC the CPU up to 2.6 or 2.8? Need some advice. Thanks. =D

i've been searching for days and i can't find a shop that sells a biostar mobo :(  what board does tsimonster have?
March 28, 2007 5:27:40 PM

looks like a good board. If you like MSI, its the one to go with...

EDIT** A lot the reviews spoke of very poor overclocking. Not sure how true that is, but you may want to research that board some more.

Babyflash21 when I talk with logainofhades and him spoken back, I'm impressed than a Biostar mobo do so much, in the past I had biostar motherboards and they are good although they keep themselves in basic features, and I think so. I started looking in the Web and I found this news report.
The person took the Brisbane 3600+ to 2916 mhz, that for me is very impressive. They recommend the motherboard and they give you an excellence in engineering award. For that reason I ordered mine for make my new oc, I believe is a solid motherboard for this job.

Call me weird, but I always buy ATi chipsets for ATi video cards and nVidia for nVidia cards... lol

Depending on how the R600 does, I may give that biostar board a try.

I don't need firewire, raid, double nics, or any of that.

:D  Good point TSIMonster, but in the past when VIA, ALI, INTEL and others chipset company rule that's different.
March 29, 2007 4:51:26 PM

I really don't think it makes THAT much of a difference.... its just how my brain works. If I were going to buy an Intel CPU, it would be an intel chipset... no doubt there.

now, I'm tuning my Brisbane core at 3.0 ghz, oc is not easy, is trial and error method, searching for the right combination.

babybash21 why you can't buy biostar motherboard???? :(  :?:
April 4, 2007 12:08:27 PM

coz i live in the philippines and there's no store here that sells biostar boards. =( It really sucks. Most stores here haven't even heard of the biostar brand.
April 4, 2007 1:10:26 PM

Hey Dude that’s a good board I have that same MOBO since November no problem so far. I have not OC 4800+ yet but may be doing some tinkering today. So if you can get this board in the Philippines at a nice price go for it.

Which board are you referring to? the Gigabyte board?
April 5, 2007 12:08:25 PM

Mig1619 refer to MSI K9N Neo F, that mobo is Nvidia 550 cipset too, and yesterday I visit mig1619 in their house and oc their AMD 4800+ X2 Windsor core to 2.7 GHz, mig1619 not have quality cooler and the memory are mid-end (thermaltake mini typhoon and memory are corsair ddr2 800 5-5-5-15), mig1619 post something about that, check the link for more info.
