    Did you overclock it from Windows or in the BIOS. You're supposed to do it in BIOS.

Foxconn are miserable at overclocking and X2 - 6000 is a proc already overclocked from factory - you can't push it any further without a serious water cooler.
Reset the BIOS and hope it will start again, otherwise you will need at least a new proc.

EMachine EL1333G windows 7 64 bit AMD Athlon 2650E Processor ( BIOS OVERCLOCK HELP)


Troy,

When Processors (CPU) are made, they are made on a Pass/Fail scale. Processor is either Good, or not good.

This means you may get a Processor that is on the Top of the scale, or Bottom of the scale. The AMD factory doesn't discriminate.

In fact they don't care. (This goes for all Processor manufacturers, not just AMD)
All they care about is does the Processor work, or not?

Therefore, you may have a Processor that is on the Bottom of the scale, but passed as Good.

Point? Stating a setting that might be good for joeblow's AMD Athlon 2650e, may not work for yours.

Might work for yours, and not joeblow's.

This is why you need to go into BIOS Setup, and using a SMALL increment, overclock the Processor.
Run the computer for 24 hours, and see if everything is chiily.
(Computer still works OK)
This is a "Burn-In test"

Works OK for 24 hours? Then go back into BIOS Setup, and go up one more small increment. Do the Burn-In test.

Keep going until the computer has glitches, or doesn't work.
Then go back into BIOS Setup, and come down one small increment, or go back to where the computer WAS working OK.

It's an individual thing. Each Processor (CPU) is different from the others.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Your existing CPU will not work with that motherboard. The AM2+/AM2 processor slot is for AMD processors only. For this motherboard, you will need one of the following processors: Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2

Overclocking


I never overclock my processors... because I have fried a couple.

AND I don't really need any extra power/speed... because now I only surf the web and do some Word/Excel stuff and my duo core Intel chip is awesome for that.

So - first: I don't recommend it.

But - second: there are some good sources on the web about it...

Do you know how to do it?
I mean the steps to get to the settings and change them?

If you do then I found some recommendations for your processor at http://www.amdgeeks.net/overclockdatabase.

====================================
Processor: Athlon 64 LE-1640 2600 @ 3422 MHz
Overclock % Voltage Idle Load
132% 1.25/35/40 @ 1.50V 35°C 41°C

Processor: Athlon 64 LE-1640 2600 @ 3380 MHz
Overclock % Voltage Idle Load
130% 1.25/35/40 @ 1.40V 30°C 40°C

Processor: Athlon 64 LE-1640 2600 @ 3320 MHz
Overclock % Voltage Idle Load
128% 1.25/35/40 @ 1.37V 29°C 44°C
===============================
Like I said I don't recommend it so I don't want to walk you through it, also when you do this you run a risk of frying your chip - and I don' want to be liable. Like I said above - there is some good infor on the web about it so you should not have any trouble finding out how if you don't know.

Good luck

Gaming processor.


No lie, the best and cheapest you will find for gaming, and for overclocking is the AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.6Ghz "Black Edition" It is a dual core, AM2 socket, and has unlocked multipliers you can access through your bios, which is perfect for a newbie to mess around with overclocking. Go to www.tomshardware.com and search for it, they did a big article all about overclocking it which will explain why its so great. Best thing is its 90 bucks on www.newegg.com , just plan to buy a fan and some thermal grease, wont run you much more. Good luck and happy overclocking.
