Sounds like you should start bumping your FSB speed up a li'l at a time. You should be able to get near 200 without any special mods. It should at least run well into the 180's. If it won't boot, back it down a few MHz. If it won't start, clear your CMOS, and try again at a lower speed that worked. Then, after you find a stable speed, try playing HL on it for awhile to stress it. If HL is unstable, either back off the FSB some more, or start playing around with bumping up your voltages. There's lots of threads discussing that topic. Remember, don't go for the max right off the bat. Try the 170's first, then the 180's. Once you pass the point where it will boot, you'll have to go back and reset the CMOS and reset all those settings again.

How to add core volatge? AMD ATHLON LE-1620 on biostar motherboard?


Well, when overclocking, one doesn't usually change the core voltages until _after_ manipulating the bus frequencies, core speeds, and ratios. One should understand manipulation of frequencies before messing with voltages because manipulation of voltages can lead to _fried_ components. Usually one can get a decent overclock just by manipulating the frequencies. Here is a _starter_ website:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/phenom-overclock-athlon,2161.html

Research, research, and research some more before trying to overclock.

Here are some required tools:

http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=103

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

There are a lot more tools out there, these are just the ones that I use.

I'm running an Intel E8500 (3.1 Gz.) at a stable 3.5 Gz. with _no_ voltage changes. That's not a huge OC, but it's running at E8600 speed and the E8600 costs $100 more than the E8500.

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".

Overclock procesor athlon 64 2800 +?


There are a bunch of guides out there to help you with the overclocking process.But bear in mind that you will loose your warranty as son as you change the frequency cycles. Also make sure that your system can withstand the excessive heat that will be generated by the processor.You should arrange some alternative cooling system like liquid coolers,Highgraded thermal insulation pastes or atleast a couple of additional coolant fans. Go through this.... http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/102

Can the amd athlon 4200 x2 proceesor be overclocked ? on the geforce6100pm-m2 motherboard


not a good idea over clock it to much without the right cpu heat sink and faster fan will make it over heat and possably blow up it should work with 2.4 if not u need at least a 450 watt power supply with that card

AMD Duron 1.4G, 1.6G, 1.8G (Applebred)
You motherboard uses a "Socket A" CPU and therefore has limits to how high you can go.. I would recommend the XP 2200 or 2400+ as a good choice, but you can make your own choice.
