amd 5200+ varying cpu multiplier!!

hi guys... i got an amd 5200+ brisbane and i'm just wondering why its cpu multiplier is continuously varying from x5 to x10 and seldom in x13.5 although i set it manually to x13.5 in the bios setup. is it normal? if not, how do i fix it? does it have performance issues?

my system is:

amd 5200+ 2.7 ghz @ x13.5
1gb kingmax + 2gb corsair gaming ram ddr2
motherboard is biostar geforce 8100

plz help guys...i'm new to amd cpus.. i didn't experience this kind of problem in my pentium 4 3.06ghz processor... plz help..any information would be appreciated..thanks!

its not a problem, its called cool and quiet it throttles the cpu clock to lower temps and save power

it will get back to full speed when you want it to, so you dont loose performance

Yes you can.Just read some guides to overclock and do it.
You will need good cooling and case airflow for that.

thnx! hehehe another thing...if i'm going to add a graphics card, what would be the best card for this system? i'm planning to utilize its hybrid sli...and does hybrid sli will give additional performance? or it would be better keeping it off and let the discrete graphics card work alone?

A single card will be more than enough for that rig else the CPU would be the limiting Factor.
The best I can think of is HD 4770 or 9800GT.

Though it also depends on your budget and power supply unit and the monitor resolution.

thnx man...i'm just wondering if this system could handle 9800gtx+....and what are the differences between 9800gt and 9800gtx+? will 9800gtx+ would work fine on this system?

not much of a difference between the GTS 250, 9800GTX+ and 9800GTX, they are all pretty much the same card

from what i remember the 9800gtx is a whole different architecture than the 9800gt. It's not the usual nvidia thing where the 9800gt is just a 9800gtx that has been crippled. If you want benches

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/budget-radeon-gefor...

has both the 9800gt and 9800gtx in the charts.

After a quick check on the egg gts250's (rebranded 9800gtx+) are going for about $30-$40 more than the 9800gt's. I think that your system would probably be the limiting factor over the gpu at this point, but if you don't mind spending, and have a PSU that can handle it, and have the case room, why not, it's a free country.

As a note i have a 9800gtx (non +) and it's just huge, i mean massive big. Where as you can get single slot 9800gt's now, don't know how long they are though.

9800GT's will fit any mid tower case.
Yes you can buy 9800GTX but then overclock your cpu for better performance.


What PSU do you havee?

The 9800GTX will pull around 110w --- the GTX260 around 145w.

The 260 is a better card, but not if you have to purchase a new power supply.

The 9800GTX should be a good match for your rig depending upon your gaming resolution.

As far as your OC disable C&Q, increase the base clock (FSB, sorta) to 210MHz and drop your HT to 4x.

This will boost your clock speed to 2.835GHz and your RAM speed to 810MHz (if you are running DDR2 800).

A Brisbane will crap out between 3.1-3.2 GHz. If you want to clock higher than above you will need to drop the memory to 333MHz and increase your CPU vcore to 1.4 (and may need better cooling with a new HSF).

If you aren't changing the cpu multipier, than there is no reason to disable cool n quiet while raising the FSB. And I don't think the OP would need to drop the memory at 3.1. My 5000+ is running at almost 3.2 and the o'c with cool and quiet is like this
246 bus x 13 multi =3.198 @ 1.4v
and 980MHz corsair xms2 memory (hanvn't touched timings and voltages)

thanks guys..it really helped me.. by the way..the maximum resolution that my monitor can support is 1600x1200...it's not high so i think games will run smoothly...am i correct? thanks again guys!
