    Default clock speed for older board

    hello all, first time poster. i have a question about clocking my board(see my specs). to over clock one -from what i've seen here- is to control the memory and cpu speeds. my board offers in the bios, to change the multiplier and the fsb speed. normal speed is set at 204 mhz at 9x which comes to 1836 or so speed. so checking the math, for my amd 64 3000 i should be able to go to say 270 mhz and leave the multiplier alone and come close to 2430 or 2.4ghz right? if so ,ok, then why does my system crash when I'm not even close to normal clock speed? now i thought maybe the memory speed is off, checked it with astra and it shows the timing at 3.0-3-3-8 and 400mhz. normal? so why am i not even able to get to the rated speed of a retailed cpu? temps stay at 90f, cpu vcore at 1.40v. operates fine for just surfing the web. suggestions or ideas please

    Welcome to the forums!

    try set the datarate on your memory to 333 or even 266, when you add mhz to your FSB you also overclock the ram. so to compensate you have to lower the datarate on the RAM or else it will fault the system.

    I would say to focus more on the multiplier and leave the ram speed at 400, but the multiplier is probably locked on the CPU.

    but with your FSB at 270mhz you will defiantly have to lower the RAM datarate

    by the way post temps in Celsius.

  5. The following user thanks xApemanx For this above post:

    thanks apeman, but i'm not able to get to 3.0ghz, it should clock there even with the memory at auto settings right? the speed is at 200,also the temp is at 26c. thanks

    you will have to set it manually.

    I haven't heard of people hitting 3GHZ on the 3000+ without doing something spectacular

    I think I hit 2.2 or 2.3 GHZ on my 3000+ back in 2005. The 3200+ was the better overclocking chip back then with a higher multiplier, that's what everyone was hitting 2.8 or 3.0 on.

    when you get your overclock around what you want run the benchmark Prime95 for an hour or two, to test stability and find your max load temps.

    ok, found that value ram was the cause-did not know i was sold value ram. replaced with avant ram and am able to overclock-but no apeman, i don't think i'll get to 3.0ghz as i hoped. more like 2.3ghz, and doing well there so far.

    If your going to run 4GBs of memory, you should be running a 64bit OS, that's the only way you will get full use of all 4GBs.
