Help me OC my FX!!!

Postby BicycleMonkey » Wed Feb 14, 2007 6:50 pm

I have an FX-55 I have OC'd to 2.9GHz. I achieved this by changing the multiplier to 14x and the FSB to 207 to give me 2.9GHz. It is stable like this.

I have changed the multiplier to 15, kept the FSB at 200 and increased the voltage to give me 3.0GHz but WinXP locks up after about 20 minutes of use.

What do I need to try next to get this stable at 3.0GHz (or more)? This is on the machine in my sig BTW.

well there are a couple of things to consider. if you have really good cooling you can raise the vcore in the smallest possible increments through your bios until you are stable. the other thing you can try is using the 14x multiplier and raising your fsb a couple points at a time granted your memory can handle it. i hope this helps you out

I can't go over 207MHz FSB without lockups. The BIOS will only let me increase the voltage to 1.575 or thereabouts.

ok, just do the smallest increment possible until it is stable. baby steps 8)

I bumped the RAM up a notch and it still wasn't stable, even at 207MHz FSB. Oblivion crashed after about 30 minutes.

I know more can be squeezed out of this CPU than just increasing the FSB 7MHz...What do I need to be doing?

Try going into the bios and locking the divider or ram timings and speed at stock... Also try updating to the latest bios. And turn off any un used bios options like on board sound etc
