So im fairly new to overclocking (but have been reading related topics extensively since amd's pencil trick)
And im not too sure about
2)how much i need to increase voltages according to the increase in frequency.
My Althlon 64 X2 6000+ at stock settings are
200.9x15=3013.5Mhz @ 1.44v(AUTO)
And Corsair XMS2 6400 2GB dual channel RAM is at 376.7Mhz 5-5-5-12
CPU/MB temps at idle and load = 37C/38C and 50C/44C (18C ambient temps)
I increased it to 213x15=3195Mhz
so RAM is now at 399.4Mhz
CPU/MB temps at idle and load= 39C/39C and 55C/46C
almost same (+1C) temp results with 220x15=3300Mhz !@ 1.475V and RAM 412.5 @ 1.825V all stable but with 2T
1) Why are the load temps so high even at stock settings?
Is it an airflow problem?
I will be getting a zalman 9500AM2 or something similar soon. any suggestions for improving temps/airflow?
2) Are my voltage increments too much/too little?
when i increased RAM from 376 to 399 do i increase RAM voltage to 1.825?
The ram is supposed to run at 800mhz or 2x400 at stock settings and 1.8v.
And is 1.44v(AUTO) to 1.475 enough for a 10% cpu oc?
please feel free to clarify in detail. all help appreciated!!
no suggestions at all? i know the diagram's really bad but cmon ppl! i gotta work with wat i got..
anyhow...turns out my RAM stock voltage it 1.9v!
its the damnest thing...i changed the ram to 1.9v in the bios and
my cpu/mb temps at stock setting dropped to 35/35C idle
and with 213x15 at full load its only 48/46C prime95 blend stable.
how on earth could ram voltage affect cpu/mb temps?
i've been trying to up the core clock to 220x15 but i get blend test errors/BSODs even at 214 including with voltage increments. i suspect my cpu doesnt like even numbers.
now ive got a couple questions for m2n32-sli users
1)when set to auto, the cpu voltage reported by pc probe is 1.44-1.46v
when set to 1.4625v pc probe reports 1.50v
and 1.750v shows as 1.52v. whats going on here??
2)since oc'ing the cpu core oc's the RAM and the HT-link, how do i increase voltages for the ht-link on this board? or should it be northbridge/southbridge volts? my cpu/ram volt increments arent doing any good.
