  AMD Llano HT/Base Clock Question 
 Date Written 
Seth Hoffman Mar 22, 2012, 09:38am EDT Report Abuse
I am working on overclocking an AMD Llano 3870K. My motherboard does not allow me to change the base clock as other boards do, but it does allow me to change the multiplier. I am looking to overclock via the AMD Overdrive utility

Is the Hypertransport clock the same as the base clock but is reported as 200Mhz because it's a DDR frequency? For example if I set my HT clock to 266MHz is that the same as a 133Mhz base clock?

If I'm not mistaken, The HTT base clock is multiplied by the CPU multiplier. Anyhow this app should help you OC.

Also Overdrive should give you details on specific CPU components that should answer your questions. Find something stable, with Overdrive then set it up via bios if you choose.

I have been trying to use the AMD OVerdrive utility to OC. I can OC the CPU just fine, but the utility does not allow me to change any other values except for CPU mulitplier and CPU voltage. The problem is I don't care about overclocking the CPU, I want to OC the GPU side, from 600Mhz to 800Mhz cap. I believe this is a limitation of my motherboard and not the utility.

Can you really OC the on-the-core GPU separately from the CPU? I am wondering...

Yes, my wifes MSI uATX board allows you to. The chip is capped at 800Mhz though, 600Mhz stock. I have also seen Asus uATX boards with the same feature. The multiplier is locked at 6x but by bumping the base clock to 133Mhz x 6 = 798Mhz you can come in right under that cap.
