BIOS Settings to OC AMD Athlon 5200 Help pls

Recommended Posts

Greetings to all!

 

After having my rig for almost a year I decided to try little OCing. I red many forums and got some information to start but after my initial try to change settings in bios I reach nowhere.

 

I'm looking forward to increase the CPU performance to 40-50% on the custom Air Cooling.

 

I would appreciate ANY help.

 

Here are my rig specs:

AMD Athlon 64 x2 5200+ Windsor

MB Gigabyte M59SLI-S5

RAM 4x1GB Kingston DDR2

Gigabyte Custom Heat sink

Power supply Force 900W

GPU Gigabyte GTX280 1GB DDR3

Vista Ultimate 32 SP1

First, 40-50% on a 2.6ghz chip means 3.64-3.90GHz - which is not possible on air cooling. Second, you have an F2 revision, which most likely will top out at 3-3.1Ghz (the F3's are much better, they often do 3.3-3.5Ghz).

 

What changes did you do, btw?

Thanks for the reply - 40-50% hehe obviously I'm not gonna do that with this processor, actually I was aiming exactly @ 3GHz..

 

So after some reading and trials this Saturday currently I'm running the Orthos Test on the rig and here is the link to CPU-Z >>

I tried to top up the bus speed @ 222 but the system failed to boot;

I tried @ 220 and the Windows loaded. The Orthos failed after 2 min of blended test...

 

Now the test is running at the published settings 20 minutes and the rig looks stable.

 

The question is have I reached the STABLE top??..

Stable because I need the rig for gaming at the end of the day :)

 

Thanks for your posts
