Thread: Need help with Overclocking (I'm a newbie)

    Hey all!

    Just got a new rig,

    AMD Athlon XP 2200+ (1800 mhz)
    Epox 8rda+ Mobo :thumb:
    Generic 512 DDR Ram with Elixir chips :shrug:
    Geforce4 ti 4200

    Okay, I don't really want to OC my Ram (for obvious reasons ) And I don't feel like increasing the FSB yet, so I use the multiplier thingy.

    Now my CPU fan/heatsink is a Thermaltake 6cu+, is that good?
    My goal is to reach the speed of a 2400+, which is about 2000mhz.
    Currently, I've been able to hit 1866 mhz (14.0 mult) but if I try the next multiplier 15x, Windows won't boot.
    Any suggestions?

    Have you bumped the core voltage up yet? If not then raise it 0.1v but watch ya temps as that HSF ya got ain't a real good one.

    Hey thanks man I had to raise my voltage from 1.7 to 1.85 and my temp is at 53C (with the case open :rolleyes: ) But now it works!!! Maybe I'll become an OC freak now!

    EDIT: Uhhh, make that 56C... But is that Ok? My CPU might just :snip: on me...

    Depending on your location, invest in the TT volcano 7+. It is worth it if you intend to overclock.:flames:

    Dont forget to put a heatsink on yr ram tough, im not sure if its a cheap brand but make sure u either have a heatsink or a fan somewhere near it (all really depends on how far you want to go with other components and what you use for cooling them, but i would do that very thing)
