Some help please on AMD Kuma cpu OCing

I've got an AMD Kuma7750 black edition cpu and i was wondering if 3200Mhz
Was a halfway decent overclock on a budget ECS 8200A board.

I have overclocked it by adjusting the FSB and the multiplier. I have not been able to get even a stable overclock on anything over 3200.

If anyone has managed to get anything better or even heard of anybody getting anything over that with those specs or even similar budget specs please let me know whenever you can. Thanks in advance.

  1. the 7750's are poor overclockers, I have 1 in my closet somewhere gathering dust.....

    I got 3.3Ghz and that is considered high for a 7750....

    60F? that is wrong since that is the basically 15c......
  2. I'm amazed you haven't killed your processor yet with that voltage, it's well beyond safe for anything but a suicide run. Kuma is nothing but a crippled Phenom, they were terrible overclockers and not everyone was even able to hit 3.0Ghz on them, 3.4Ghz was a high overclock. Having a motherboard with ACC(Advanced Clock Calibration) has been proven to help both Kuma and Agena overclock, but it still wouldn't make a significant difference.

    iev got a XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU w/ Arctic Silver its a verey good cooler.
    at full load w/ fan set on high it gets 100F to 110F.
    thats good
  4. yea but your CPU cannot idle at 15c, unless its 40f in your room....
  5. its allways idels 2to4 degeas from room temps with that cooler and i'ev got a big min server case and a ih flo 120mm fan in the front 3x80mm fans in back Arctic Silver rules it drop my nb 40to50F from
    150to160F to 105F to115+F some good stuff!!! thanks for help

    those temps are waaaay off.

    Use realtemp to monitor temps. The room would have to be 30f-40f in order to get those temps. [:jaydeejohn:4]
  7. it would have to be SNOWING in his room for a CPU to idle at 15c....

    the voltage on that CPU is way too high as well..... lucky you haven't fried that Kuma....
  8. my boards allways reads 1.5+volts from the first time it was turned on back in april till now.

    some kind of glich in the board. yes i'ev up dated bios with the newes ones every time new ones come out.

    my temps now are 110F mcp temp,98F gpu, 60 to 70F cpu, and room temp med 60s
  9. do you have CPU-Z?

    if so pull this up and check correct voltage :



    if not the download it :

    CPU-Z

  10. yep i know 1.58v is a death setting but its a glich in the board.

    when i first run cpuz and saw 1.58 i was scard it was gong to go nuklyer but its ran like that for 8 month no fireball yet.

    has to be a glitch in the board reading or cpu reading systems .
    but no problems with any other hardware but software i'ev allways got bugs but thats just me

    temps read good after i turned off AMD cool N quiet.
    a fans got a bit louder but no big deal when conpeard to GPU fan at full its like a old car heater at med/hi GPU's a zoatec GF9800 GTX+
  11. the best i get out of mine is 3.1ghz at 1.45V and a max temp of 59C after a few hours of prime95. Also used a FSB overclock as well, though thats so cool and quiet keeps working for me. Never got a stable 3.2, could boot into windows at 1.5V but failed prime95 in about a min. Didn't push the voltage any further. Using a gigabyte 790X board and if acc is off i can't hit 3.0ghz stable. So i'd say you got just about all out of your chip you can, even on the budget board ( assuming that your voltages really arn't 1.58)
    As everyone said poor overclockers but good for what i paid!

    i gotta few more :





  14. if you noticed, the very first CPU-Z screenie is from my work comp (Win 7), other 3 screenies are from my home comp (XP Pro), just FYI ....
  15. Haha ok fine you arent lying, I was confused though because the processor on your work comp is the same one as in your sig
  16. is $656 a go prices for my pc that's what i have spent on it ??? :ouch: :o

    check my profile for spec.

    OK Thanks for your help people ! :hello: :wahoo:

    My Computer room is showing 20c ambient, but I have nice -3c breeze coming in through a cracked open window, straight towards my case intakes. :P

    The 31c peak was from about 45mins that my buddy just put into GTAIV.

    my monitor was set to 1920x1080p not the best but i love it's 24" screen for movies n games
    flash games screens are as big as old monitors hole screen 17"crt de!! 1024x768

    thanks 4 help n send more info if u got it !!!! :hello: :)
  21. Change your coretemps scale to celsius, us non-americans and most of the PC world are used to comparing celsius reading. And who wants to use their computer as a calculator, anyway? :D
  22. is 246.7Mhz a high FSBus OC ????
    and if get that on my AMD Kuma Bl.Ed. can i get that on other cpu's like Athlon II"s or the Phenom II's

    THANKS !!! :hello: :)
