AMD Athlon II x4 630 OC HELP?!

I have a M52L-S3P mobo and AMD Athlon II x4 630 and am currently struggling to find a stable OC config, i have managed to get it to 3.5ghz on default voltages, but it was unstable, i would like to achieve 3.5ghz, does anyone know a stable FSB and Voltage set-up to help me chieve this, the standard voltage is 1.4v. Please reply i posted before and nobody replied, if you need anymore information please ask, thankyou.

  1. First off welcome to THG =)

    Second, why are you trying to get a stable overclock with stock voltages? The 630 is clocked at 2.8Ghz stock with a voltage of 1.325v. If you want stability you need to crank up the voltage a bit.

    Third, not sure if you are running an aftermarket cooler or not but it is highly recommended that use one if you are inclined to do any overclocking at all.

    At 3.5Ghz your CPU should not need more than 1.42v, here is an example :

    Thanks for the reply, i tried upping the voltage by +0.100v which then took me to 1.5v roughly, it booted stabaly 3 times in a row and on the 4th POST error reported which i guess is the normal with unstable CPU so i attempted to up it +0.125v this gave me another error, and then tried +0.150v which booted and blue screened at the log on screen. i am using an aftermarket cooler, which with stock idles at 25-28c. I'm not very good at troubleshooting myself with this, and so if you think i have done soemthing wrong please correct me, i have disabled AMd Cool & quiet as i heard this conflicted, is there anything else you can suggest, thankyou again.
  3. So your board does not let you choose the exact voltage needed for 3.5Ghz? Anyway you can post a screenshot of your Bios?

    uhmmm i cant find an image on the web, and i cant post my own photos, how else can i show you? Windows Live Messenger? or E-Mail?
  6. Its easier if you have a photobucket or imageshack acct. Upload your pics and use the codes to post them here. Let me know if you need any help with this.

    Ok made a Photobucket acc, here they are, let me know if you need others.





  8. First off, did you manually set your RAM timings/frequency/voltage? If not that is the first thing you need to do before you even think about overclocking the CPU.

    he's right that Auto DRAM voltage is not the way to go. you need to manually key in your DRAM timings because if you dont use a memory divider your fsb drives your ram frequencies.

    Thanks i've got it sorted now, without changing th dram volts too, when i chanegd them i got POST error reports or the one time it failed to boot even the BIOS and so i had to reset CMOS, got it' stable at 3.35ghz now, hopefully it's stable anyways :P prime shows so, and i've been using it now for a few hours, but a reboot will soon tell the truth :P
  11. Here's a few Pictures of my PC just for fun :D




    OvrClkr will agree that's a GOOD cooler :P



    And here's a link to more :P

    What are you voltages at ?
