AMD 5000+ non black Edition
I know, I should of gotten the black edition, but I was hasty to get a new CPU and didn't. Anyway, I'm using a Jetway M2 Motherboard, and I can't over clock past 242 mhz bus speed without the system refusing to start.
Vcore is set at 1.3 (I think), no vcore shift. The Ram is 533 and my $40 mobo (which is not even a real x16 lane!) cannot change the ram factor.
It is the factory default 10.5 multiplier.
The mobo is a jetway M26GT3-SVP
Currently, I have a 6800, but i am planning to upgrade to a Geforce 9600.
I have 2 gb of ram, one one gb stick, and two 512 mb.
Cant think of anything off hand, 450 Watt PSU that works marvelously and should be able to handle a 9600.
I also have a non-BE 5000+. I was wondering if 3ghz can be attained "easily" with this proc? On paper it looks like 3ghz at 12x250 with a HTT multi of x4 would be delicious. I believe that makes the RAM speed at around 750mhz if I run it at DDR-667 speeds. I was having problems just getting to 2.8 to run stable on prime95 but I believe that was a RAM issue.
I am running this X2 5000+ on a Foxconn C51XEM2AA motherboard with 2 gigs of Patriot DDR2-6400 ram with windows xp media center edition. I also have a beefy CPU cooler that came with the system so cooling "shouldnt" be an issue.
As of right now I have only been able to get a stable CPU speed of 2.73 but I was able to tighten my ram to 4-4-4-12. All of the voltages are set to 'Auto'
I also have the regular 5000+. I am running it on an Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard. I have 3 gig of DDR-800 ram, 2 Evga 7950 Gt's in sli and my rig is water cooled. I am currently running my 5000+ at a stable 3.016. My fsb is 232 x 13 and set my core voltage to 1.45. I have my ram set at ddr2-800 4-4-4-12 and running at 2.1 volts. I haven't had any issues with this set up at all. My CPU temp is usually around 45C ideling and 56C running.
