Speed ceiling?

Postby chieftex » Thu May 04, 2006 8:06 am

Trying to overclock an opteron. Machine in my sig.

Got the ram to go up to 260mhz before errors.
Fsb can go up to 380mhz (x3 HTT)

cpu seems to be the issue, but i think im missing something. Can get it to around 2600mhz before i have issues, but that is with the stock multiplier (x10) and stock voltage.

Should I be expecting more mhz out of it if i drop the multiplier to, say, x9?
How about upping the voltage? as I understand it, the default is 1.4v...

*EDIT* Im missing an important point here - does increasing the voltage do so for the just the cpu, or for all components on the mobo (or what)?
Intel E4500 @ 2.2ghz (stock)
Asrock P45DE motherboard
2x 2GB Ballistix DDR2-800
Xfx HD 4890
2x hdds
2x odds
