hi i have a amd x2 245 on a gig-m61pme-s2p the process i got is factory at 2.9 ghz and i have got it so far upto 3.13ghz my bus speed is 216.1 mhz and my ht link is 1080.6 mhz i have 4gig ddr2 at 800 in my tower n a 9500gt card any advice on how i can get it a bit higher ???

well, there is no magic setting to recommend. what's the CPU temperature? Are you using the stock heat sink? Decrease the RAM divider and start increasing the HT link

yea got stock heat sink at mo getting bigger soon lowerd ram dwn to 3.33 wot is the HT link called in bios as i crnt find it. and wot bored would be better for this proces malmental ????

Yah need to drop your HT link to x4 and drop your memory ratio from 400 to 333.

That will give you enough *headroom* to go 14.5x242MHz or 3.5GHz+.

That will slightly OC your RAMs to 807MHz, and your HT will be running 4x242MHz.

If you drop your memory ratio to 266 and your HT to x3, I suspect you can run 13.5x280MHz for 3.8GHz (with good cooling) and your RAMs will be running 2.66x280MHz, or 745MHz.

You could try the clock at 300MHz - LOL - but that might be pushing it a little too far. You will return your RAMs to spec 800MHz if you manage to do so. (Hint: You might want an extra fan blowing on your FETs :)  )

I love Gigabyte (not a big fan of the nVidia chipset, though)

ive tryed wot you have said n everytime it starts up it says 2.91ghz for process speed is it the K8<->NB HT Speed i make to x4 ?????

yup --- don't forget to drop back the memory ratio to 333.

Does this look familiar ??

If I understand your question correctly .... YES! .... you should change the HT Link speed to x4

With the setting at *x4* this should allow you to raise the clock up to 250MHz without exceeding the 1000MHz HT Link speed.

do i change the width aswell i have out mem to 333 pro to 250 n x14.5 n x4 n still get 2.91 ghz on pro

I don't know what that means. Please improve your communication skills.

14.5 x 240MHz = 3.48GHz CPU

240MHz x 3.33 = 799MHz ram speed

240MHz x 4 = 960MHz HT link speed

yea thats wot i mean but i tuck it to 14.5x 250mhz 250mhz x 3.33 250mhz x 4

n all isee on my pro sepeed is 2.91 ghz
