Thread: Most stable method to OC to 3200+

    Using the rig in my sig( 2500 which I got for christmas), Id like to push it to 3200 speeds (2.2Ghz) while keeping it stable, and at minimal temperatures, and the main reason Im asking you guys, is because Im running into a few problems. I tried to just leave my multiplier at 10, and bump up my fsb to 200, but it seems to just reset to 1100mhz when I exit and save. I know I succesfully had this thing running stable at 3200 speeds, but then one day it magically reset, and Im only now getting around to messing with it. (This is my first rig that Im actually attempting at OCing, so I guess you can call me a nOOb). Also, Im not gonna have money to invest in decent cooling solutions, therefore Im stuck with the crap HSF that came retail with the Barton. So basically what I am asking is some advice/methods of a very common OC with this CPU. Also, when I tried lower my mem timings, my computer just died, and I had to reset the CMOS, or it would just reset to 1100mhz(teh ghey). Would a voltage boost maybe solve this problem?? Can anyone explain why it resets to 1100mhz?? Is there something in my bios I need to disable to stop it from doing this?? Thanks to anyone who replies.

    RIG:
    AMD 2500 Barton
    Epox 8RDA3+
    Buffalo Technology PC3200 (kinda cheap)
    Radeon 9100 (PCI, but Im waiting for the arrival of my HIS Excalibur 9800PRO this week :) )

    Thanks again to anyone who might help this poor NoObEr :/

    the easiest way to get 3200 speed is to leave the multiplyer at 11 and change the FSB to 200 (400DDR). you may need a smaill voltage increase to keep it stable (mine did) however as your using the stock heatsink do not increase the voltage too much and watch your temperatures.

    Firstly did ya increase the core voltage by 0.1v?
    Secondly it's very likely that ya'll have to get a better HSF.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Im running at 45 degrees right now, very stable at 2205mhz, and I did exactly what metallicat said. I pushed the fsb up to 200, but I don't think I am going to need a voltage increase, because it seems to be running fairly stable.

    Ill be back with some nOObish memory timing questions in a little bit, but thanks for the advice so far.

    45c @ 3200+ speeds? mine 2500+ barton runs @ 50-55c at stock speeds. what themal adhesive did u use?

    Wow, thats strange, I thought those were very great temps for my setup as well, especially since Im not even using any thermal paste. I got the AMD retail, and just popped it right in, since I didn't have any thermal paste. It also could have something to do with me leaving the vcore at default??

    Also, Im only running a Radeon 9100 PCI, so that's not creating too big of a hot spot in my pc, but hopefully my HIS Excalibur with the IceQ cooling solution won't change that.

    Should I mess with my memory timings at this point??

    at this point i would try to lower the multiplyer to 10 or 10.5 then increas the FSB in 5mhz intervals. if your memory is good it should be able to do about 220mhz (440DDR) and with a 10x multiplyer you will have the same speed as 200 x 11 but it will run faster due to the higher bus speed. for the memory to run at this speed a voltage increase may be needed and the memory timings may need to be loosened.
