If memory serves, we both have the same mobo. (I wanted to ask if you got the audio figured out yet?)

But using the CoreCenter program supplied by MSI for the Neo4 board, It will allow you up to an 11% overclock via that program. (anyone know a better one? I'll give it a whirl)

Best I've got currently with just the FSB adjust @ 11% is:

222 MHz @ 9.0 for the multi.

She hovers nicely around the 2gig mark (1998-2001 with very slight variations)


It's also dependent on your memory. If you are running stock PC3200 as I am? Expect a normal of 200 MHz. If you are using PC2700? Your normal I believe would be 166 MHz.

Here's the April 2005 white paper from AMD titled BIOS and Kernel Developer's Guide for AMD Athlon 64 and AMD Opteron Processors

That one doesn't include the updates for the revision E processors in the memory section. It still shows DDR333 max with all 4 slots filled at 2T.

Here's a developer's guide on Code Optimization Guide that also deserves a good reading

I have a MSI K8T Neo FIS2R and there is no way to change the multiplyers on anything in the BIOS (version 1.3 so it says) It has dynamic overclocking where it does it automatically.. but anything over 2255 Windows crashes (stock at 2200) I tried increasing the memory voltage but it still doesnt work.

This is a VERY INTERESTING and USEFUL guide. Thanks guys. :D

I'll definitely use it when I'll find the time to start overclocking my X2 3800+ new CPU. :wink:

Excellent post, helped me to the land of 2.3GHz (230.4 x 10) on my Athlon 64 (939) on a lowly Abit UL8. 15% and stable and cool. I might invest is some H2O cos I know there's more.
