    i was playing around with some mobo tools for my gigabyte GA-DX7 board i forgot i installed and found this tidbit:


    this is an XP2000+ cpu

    the same app tells me the
    ram is at 3.3v (3 256mb ddr pc2100 sticks)
    vcore is 1.720v
    +12 is 11.880v
    +5 at 4.950v
    +3.3 is 3.220v

    cpu temp is 57^C - but it's running 3 differnt scans for virii/trojans/scandisk/adaware at the same time (scheduled)

    TT volcano7 is at 4551rpm, controlled by temp

    here's the Q:
    since the image above shows that the max speed can be 2000mhz, how do i get it there?

    raise the multiplier and FSB.
    But its not set in stone as to the fact that you can reach 2Ghz.
    I had my xp2000 running at 1800+Mhz, but it was a pally so it sucked!

    you should get your cpu temp down before you do any overclocking
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    :shrug: i don't get it, i guess some things need to be said twice

    You NEED better cooling 57C under load is stil way to hat, as the temps arent gonna drop 20C idle. So dont be sayin minibubba is wrong, cause hes right, you need better cooling, or your program is reading them wrong.

    that is why I said you need to get your temps down first...

    57C at max load with stock speeds is too hot if you want to OC, your temps will only go up when you OC

    even if you don't OC, 57 C at max load is still hotter than most people are comfortable with


    thanks for the support amd_man2003 :)

    Isn't max heat for an AMD is 70C?

    ---to CT_: Even though I don't promote heat because it is evil. oh wait 57C is crap, did you remove your HSF and have no airflow. And no offense, its not that interesting of a tidbit, most people know what their computer is rated and the voltages and temps. BTW :spam:

    so anyway

    yes i know about the need for cooling, and yes yer right about it

    but, at this time i don't care

    all i'm looking for is the HOWTO

    typical idle temps are 36^C, sure it can be better - but it's fine for now

    more than likely it's gonna get water cooling later on

    if it is a palamino, the absolute max is 90 C...but anyting above 60 C is is not good

    57 is close enough....whatever he is using to monitor temps could be off by that much, if not more :(

    start small. up the FSB at little at a time, running benchmarks each time you push it up. At some point you will need to increase core voltage to keep it stable...but that will also shoot your temps up

    you can also adjust the multiplier at some point as well, if you unlock it. you can either move it up or down. If you move it down, you can dramatically up the FSB, if you RAM can handle it. Or you can increase the multiplier but you may not get a big of an FSB gain. It' really up to you as far as the multiplier goes.

    nice to see you posting again t00lb0x :thumb:
