Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

i have a question for all OC-Pros out there.

Do anyone of u know how far i can overclock my amd x2 6400+ with a zalman cnps9700 led?

i tried to overclock it from 3,2ghz to 3,3ghz but it wasnt stable it didnt start 3dmark06 at all...

so do anyone have any ideas how far i can go? thanks for the answers

Well ok here i made a screenshot cpu-z and core temp on it:

 

cpugd2.jpg

cpugd2.7a0fcd8f1c.jpg

 

i set cpu voltage on 1,4v with 16x210Mhz

now the cpu is running on 3360Mhz

but it isnt stable when i run 3dmark06 !!

some time i get a bluescreen or my screen is getting black...

i thought i have a good cpu fan but isnt it enough?

what links are you referring to? none posted in this thread;)

 

i mean go here: http://www.hwbot.org/quickSearch.do?hardwareId=CPU_1458&name=Athlon+64+6400%2B+X2+%28359%29

 

and explore links for best scores where are screenshots

 

for example this:

i thought i have a good cpu fan but isnt it enough?

 

they do it on liquid nitrogen ;)

CPU-Z not always correct with the vcore and no info on the cooling at all;)

 

if cpu-z is not correct pls remove this benchmark from hwbot ok?

well all i want is to overclock my cpu to its limit..

not to make a world record^^

for me it is enough when i can overclock my cpu up to 3,4ghz or maybe 3,5ghz and get it stable..without bluescreen or windows shutdowns..

U Just used 1,280VCore :) Play a bit with it ;) Have a look on the temps and then you can go on 1,4VCore or higher. Should help you to reach a higher clock

ah no^^ i really use 1,4VCore. i set it in the Bios but i dont know why cpuz shows 1,280VCore -.-

i already tried to reach its limit by myself. i was also able to overclock it to 3,520GHz on 1,565VCore ('cause it wanst able to boot on 1,5VCore)

and it seems to be stable when i just do nothing...

but when i open firefox or something like that i get a bluescreen..

even when i want to do a stresstest with prime95 it only takes 5sec to get a bluescreen ...

i would check what your RAM is capable of...

 

Memtest86+, FTW!

You must set dram frequency at 533 or 400 in the BIOS. Then you may increase Ht frequency. To my mind you ought to beat 3.4-3.5GHz.Your CPU clock by default is nearby technological limit (for air cooling), so it can't be clocked to great
