Well, currently running OK at 2.4GHZ
Currently at 11 X 220.

4X HT

Memory ratings changed fomr 3-4-4-8 to 2.5-4-4-8 ( can I push this more? )

generic crap ram = run a divider and OC that CPU

CPU speed is king on A64 systems, dont worry about memory bandwidth, it will scale with CPU speed (they're not starved of it anyway)

You should be able to hit at least 2.6ghz, your current 200mhx OC is puny for a Venice

Agreed with Dublin,

Lower the divider to 133 and up the FSB testing with SP2004 that the chip is stable. You are best to find the highest clock for the chip then = out the ram. If it fails tests up the voltage 0.25v on the CPU at a time testing as said.

This is of course if you want the Max, if you want a quick 200mhz great as it is. But we know you want more ;)

Ok set the divder to 133 and my timings to 2.5-3-4-8

Upped the FSB to 237 x 11 and am now running 2.6GHZ.

My ram is now running 158MHZ?....slower?

Someone explain to me :P ( I am new to this and learning )

I can't get mine stable with this ram.

I am going to take the divider out and see what happens.

My Vcore is at 1.45 with current 133 divider.

Gonna set it back to 1:1 and see how I go.

My ram is horrible, gotta buy some new stuff

Ok, this is what I have done

Set HT to 4x

FSB @ 235 x 11 Multiplier

Divider to 166

Now I'll see if this is stable

The only stable overclock I have had was HT 4x, FSB @ 220 and Divider @ 1:1

Left my core at 1.45

OK, got it stable at 2.53GHZ

237x11 ( Original 200 x 11 )
HT 4x ( Original 5x )
166 Divider ( Original 200 )
Ram Timings at 2.5-3-3-8 ( Original 3-4-4-8 )

Good enough for me!

Air cooling @ 32 degrees idle.

Now I am going to save for some new ram and aftermarket cooler for CPU. Then I'll push it a bit more. My target will be 2.7.

Plus I am happy with 13200 3DMark03

thats 2.607ghz, not 2.53

Also, your ram should be now running 186mhz


Try this:


260htt
10x multi
166 divider


This should give you 2.6ghz, and ram at stock 200mhz.


So you'll get the same CPU performance, but your ram will be brought up to where it should be.

ram speed = 2600 / (ceil 10 / (166/200))
ram speed = 2600 / (ceil 10 /0.83)
ram speed = 2600 / (ceil 12.05)
ram speed = 2600 / 13
ram speed = 200mhz

thats still 2.585ghz. You lose your calculator m8?? lol

ram = 2585 / (ceil 11 / (166/200))
ram = 2585 / (ceil 11 / 0.83)
ram = 2585 / (ceil 13.25)
ram = 2585 / 14
ram = 184.6mhz

My way is better, gives you same CPU speed, but doesnt underclock your ram.

You'll need a little extra voltage to the chipset, and make sure HTT multi is at 3x

In latest news, Stein is an idiot, its 230x11 which is 2530MHZ.

Sorry dude.

I'll try some more stuff tonight after work. It's 5:30am.....

You can easily OC that puppy @ 2.75 GHz (11 x 250) w/ 4x HTT. Well, with the right volts that is.

Hey I am back - trying again.
Currently got it stable @ 2475mhz ( small and puny overclock from 2.2ghz )
I have set my divider to 166mhz. The question I have is, in order to get a more stable, higher overclock, should I change the timings of the ram to something like 3-5-5-9 from 3-4-4-8 or to something like 2.5-3-4-8?
My HT is 4x.
As soon as I hit 230MHZ FSB I get Prime95 rounding errors.
My voltage is 1.45v.

Thanks guys....( I know this is an old CPU, but please help me anyway lol )

I am also pretty sure I can not change the multiplier on this CPU from the 11x.
