Overclock


you only can overclock the the k version and do you still use aircooling like most, sorry i have to sat it, people, first buy a good watercooling forbyour cpu memory, gpu and fets around the cpu. question which brand psu do you use? . i assume most psu are oems with grappy components and why make your processor and memory extra warm, look for the sheets of your gear and see how hast your gear degreades with increases temperatures.

Hello, I would like to overclock my AMD mt30 CPU 1600Mhz25wattTDP 64clockspeed/power ratio to that of a SempronML37 2000Mhz35WattTDP and 57.1 clock speed/power ratio? Do I just change the voltages in...


Due to the way you stated the above John, you seem like a guy that will understand the following;

Yeah know funny thing about overclocking;

1) You may have a good Processor that came off the assembly line that day, or it may be one that just squeezed past Quality Control. Push it too much, and it will fry. Trying to make it hit 2.0GHz all day long, every day, may just push it over the limit. Sure you may have read about, or even heard of someone who did it. How long? How long did the processor last at this overclocked rate?

2) AMD's run H-O-T. Not a good idea to push a Processor with overclocking (Which makes it run MUCH hotter) in a cramped laptop environment, with a low cooling capacity anyway.

3) Ram Memory typically operates at half of the FSB Frequency Rate ('Speed'), that the Processor does. (Front Side Bus)

To overclock you can;
A) Change the Voltage
B) Change the FSB frequency rate ('speed')
C) Change the Multiplier

If you change the Front Side Bus frequency rate too far, the ram memory will not work anymore.
Won't match.

AMD Turion 64 MT-30,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Turion_microprocessors#.22Lancaster.22_.2890_nm.29

The Sempron you name is a Turion also.
Turion ML-37,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Turion_microprocessors#.22Lancaster.22_.2890_nm.29

4) You have to have a BIOS Setup Utility that will allow you to change CPU parameters.

See this article?

http://www.ehow.com/how_7335931_overclock-turion-64-compaq-nx6125.html

No mention that overclocking a Processor shortens it's 'Life Span'
No mention that if overclocked too far the Ram Memory may not work.

No mention that an AMD processor runs HOT, and if you overclock you'd better have a lot more than the factory cooling. Plus not a good thing for a laptop anyway because of a laptop's poor cooling design. (Cramped small space, small fan, inadequate cooling thermal module)

No mention that the BIOS Setup Utility in your laptop may not have a CPU Soft option, or options inside that allow you to change the Processor's parameters.

No mention that you should go slow. Change parameters in one SMALL increment, wait 24 hours, and check the system. Looks okay? Change parameters another small increment. Check during a 24 hour period. Keep going until the computer starts messing up, then go BACK to the last parameter that checked out okay

Have I dissuaded you yet?
No?
Just don't want to see someone fry their Processor, or computer.

Okay.

The Turion MT-30 has a clock multiplier of 8 times. (8x)
The Turion ML-37 has a clock multiplier of 10x.

The Turion MT-30 uses 1.35 Volts (DC)
The Turion ML-37 uses 1.35 Volts (DC)

The Turion MT-30's Front Side Bus frequency rate is 800MegaHertz
The Turion ML-37's FSB 'speed' is 800MHz.

What options in your BIOS Setup do you have for changing CPU (Processor) parameters?
State back in a Comment. (Believe top right of your page)

No options?
Then try CrystalCPUID, or ClockGen,

Is it possible to over clock amd phenom 8600b 2.30ghz triple core processor


Yes, every processor can be overclocked, but be very careful when overclocking processors. The increased heat can damage a processor and shorten it's life significantly. Ensure your processor does not get too hot during the oveclocking procedure. All overclocking should be done in small increments. The X3 8600 can be oveclocked to close to 2.7GHz safely with air cooling.
The best overclock is always through the motherboard. Depending on your BIOS you can raise the Front Side Bus (in small increments) in order to bump up the total frequency. If you have an unclocked processor, you can try to raise the multiplier. After every increase, you should stress test your computer using PRIME 95. If your computer locks up, drop down the clock speed and leave it there. Your computer should always be stable. You may have to raise the voltage of your processor to get to where you want. If you give the model of your motherboard, I can give you more detailed instructions.
Make sure you have CPU-Z (http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html). - this will show you all the details of your processor. If you would like some more detail, check out this link:http://www.wikihow.com/Overclock-a-PC and feel free to message me. If you didn't understand some of the things in this post, I'd recommend not overclocking your PC - it can be dangerous and ruin your computer if you don't know what you are doing. Alex

Some systems have "bottlenecks," where small overclocking of a component can help realize the full potential of another component to a greater percentage than the limiting hardware is overclocked. For instance, many motherboards with AMD Athlon 64 processors limit the speed of four units of RAM to 333 MHz. However, the memory speed is computed by dividing the processor speed (which is a base number times a CPU multiplier, for instance 1.8 GHz is most likely 9x200 MHz) by a fixed integer such that, at stock speeds, the RAM would run at a clock rate near 333 MHz. Manipulating elements of how the processor speed is set (usually lowering the multiplier), one can often overclock the processor a small amount, around 100-200 MHz (less than 10%), and gain a RAM clock rate of 400 MHz (20% increase), releasing the full potential of the RAM.

AMD also produced x86 designs which competed with Intel on performance rather than price. In January 2002 the Pentium 4 gained a lead in sales and AMD marketing responded by giving their processors numeric suffixes approximating the clock rate that an AMD Thunderbird (and by inference a Pentium processor) would need to give matching performance, openly undermining the "megahertz myth".

Problem in overclocking my Processor.


1: You problem is your power supply, PSU. When you try to give more power to your CPU by overclocking it, it doesn't have enough wattage, or power, to get the CD drive, or your sound card to work. This is why the CD drive works again when the CPU isn't overclocked. So, in this case, to overclock your CPU, you would have to get more power to your system by getting a more powerful PSU, or one with more wattage. How much you can overclock your processor depends on a variety of different things. Your RAM, PSU, HDD, CD drive, etc. I would not go past about 3.4ghz with your processor, however, a "max overclock" is hard to determine.

2: The maximum temp for your processor is 70C, 158F. I would try to keep your temperatures under 60C to ensure your processor doesn't "die early" on you. The multiplier cannot be changed, only the FSB can be changed. You should be able to create a "profile" in bios and set it to your default so that it loads up automatically when you boot up. Make sure you find a stable configuration before you make a default profile.

How to overclock a pentume 4 processor


Increasing of FSB (processor clock) from 10% up to 15%.
from 1700Mhz you can get 1850 Mhz.
from 2400 Mhz you can get 2640 Mhz
from 3000 Mhz you can get 3300 Mhz
but not all mater board allow this do.

Overlocked my Intel Pentium 4 3.00 Ghz


You have to go into your bios and see what your front side bus and memmory speeds are. If you overclock you cpu, sometimes you need to underclock your memmory. Say step your memmory down to 333mhz and overclock your front side bus(fsb).
Normally your fsb is 200 and only increase it by mhz. Restart, go into windows. and see if it is stable.

I always use cpu-z and gpu-z to check all of my hardware settings. I use ati tool to overclock my x1950 and it is great. There really isnt any good cpu overclocking tools because its better to do it in the bios.

Do a specific search in google for your processor and overclocking.

OVERCLOCKING


The 800 MHz seems to be your system bus speed and not the CPU speed. They a related but no quite the same. Overclocking is usually defined as forcing something to operate at a higher speed than it was designed to. If you changed the 800 MHz to 1.6 GHz in your BIOS then yes it could be considered overclocking.

One thing I would like to mention is that when changing clock speeds in your BIOS, do it in small steps, if done in large steps it can cause system instability.

How can I overclock my 166mhz classic computer?


Overclocking is not really recommended to be done by normal users. For overclocking your computer, you should have extensive knowledge of the hardware of your computer.

Overclocking may result in a totally non-working computer, burnt up Processor and motherboard and the likes. Also, overclocking results in heating problems, so you need to have made the arrangements for taking care of this heat issue.

Basically overclocking means increasing the Clock Speed of your comuter. Suppose I say that I have a Pentium 4 - 2.4GHz computer, the 2.4GHz part is the clock speed, which is increase in overclocking. Surely the computers with higher clock speeds work faster but that comes at a price. A small mistake on your part and your computer is no more working.

There are various Forums and sites on the internet that discuss Overclocking and its intricacies in greater detail.
Here's a pointer:

PS: Search google for "overclocking" and you should get a lotta links to work with.
