This is my first overclock this high.

Specs
Processor: Athlon II x4 Propus 620 @2.6ghz
Motherboard: MA785GM-US2H
Cooling: Stock fan with Arctic Silver 5 thermo paste
Memory: 4gb DDR2 1066 OCZ Platinum 5-5-5-18 @ 800mhz
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 128-bit
Harddisk: 1tb SATA Seagate ST31000340AS
PSU: 465W
Software: Windows 7


Stock
CPU RATIO: 13mhz
NB Multiplier: 10mhz
CPU Reference: 200mhz
HT Link: 2000mhz


Result:
HT Link: 2000
CPU: 2600
NB Frequency: 2000mhz

-----------------------------

Overclock
CPU Ratio: 11.5mhz
NB Multiplier: 8mhz
CPU Reference: 260mhz
HT Link: 1600mhz or Ht multiplier 8


NB Frequency: 2000mhz
HT Link: 2000
CPU: 2990mhz 15%

I will deal with the voltages and temperature, all I wish to increase is the ram frequency and cpu frequency.

The ram should be around 1066 because ram multiplier is 4x.

I have tested out these settings all ready, boots into windows fine.

Questions please help me before I proceed doing this.
My ram is rated 1066 is there something else I need to know?
Is this safe if I only wish to raise the ram and cpu?

Thanks :sol:

I guess you should just check what your temps are when your CPU and GPU are idle and under load. Use something like RealTemp to do so.

so long as your temps are within limits, that should be fine. thats not an especially high overclock, and easily within the chips limits. but as with any overclock, its the heat that will cause trouble, so make sure its safe, and be sure to stress test with prime95 for at least 4 hours while logging your temperatures.

Off topic:
The CPU ratio and NB multiplier are just that: a ratio or multiplier; they have no measurement unit; they are not measured in 'mhz' (whatever that is, cause it sure isn't MHz).
