I read the overclocking guides, and to be honest, I don't get it.

I have an Asus A8N-SLi board, which allows BIOS overclocking...

I want to overclock and I know how to change the settings, but I don't know what to change them to. Right now I believe the frequency is 200 MHz and the multiplier is 12. Not sure without checking on the voltage...

My cooler is decent, and when I had set the OC to 220 x 12, it ran around 125 to 130 degrees farenheit. I am guessing it can go more, but I need to know optimal settings...

Any solutions?

Ok... does this mean that nobody here has an overclocked A64 4000+?

Somebody here has to know what they are doing with that processor and overclocking!! :D

I joined, but their login system doesn't work. I can't view the overclocking section without first logging in... :-/

I had that problem too. I eventually got logged in by registering under a different usename.

Here's a guide that explains everything pretty well. If you have specific questions just ask them.

Can't speak for the A8N but the settings for my A8N32 SLI shouldn't be too far off. Here's a couple guides for that:

http://www.nforcershq.com/forum/a8n32-s ... 64842.html

Hope it helps some.... :wink:
