Dont forget to trash your stock heatsink and fan if you overclock. the high temp. will ruin cpus. i think your warrenty will be void too. on amd cpus you have to turn down your hypertransport and memory timings before you up the cpu. when you up the cpu the forementioned will rise automatically. use pime95 to test stability. when adding more voltage be carefull this will toast your cpu. zallman makes a good after market cpu cooler. have fun

Good to see a child in u willing to play games, but i would suggest... try streaming ur interest towards the other side of the computer...the creative side.

As far as the gaming is concerned, try using the gaming consoles designed for the sole purpose of gaming. Computers do it the hardway.


Try using computer for playing only those games, which require some thinking (strategy).

Anyway,...... that was only my suggestion. :)

Bye

Have a nice day.

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.

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.
Regards,
joecoolvette

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

Amd phenom x3 8450 processor in a middle of a game it chut down as if i cut the power off


I ocassionally have the same problem, as far as I know, on most games a single core will run the game as opposed to all 3 working in concert. This is espeically true for older games. This is caused by overheating on a single core. If you are overclocking, then you will want to clock it back down to default levels or buying a larger heat sink. If you are not overclocking, then it could be a problem with power usage i.e. you do not have a large enough power supply. If this is the case, then detaching any extra devices would temporarily solve this problem, however, a power supply that can hold more watts is the only permanent solution. There are a few other reasons why this could be happening, but less likely.

System freeze for a few second then back to normal


have you tried running benchmark software with both the 5600 and the 6000? if you run say aquamark or 3dmark 06 or 07 and compare the scores you will see which is faster then what... if the 5600 is in fact showing that its faster then you may have to update your bios so it recognizes the new cpu some mobos i have messed with had this problem but after flashing the bios it corrected the issue esp if the cpu was released say a year later from when the mobo was released. make sure you have amd driver software installed too this gives you a performance boost if you install the amd driver software rather then running windows drivers that automaticly installs on your computer when you install windows most forget about the drivers for the cpu because only recently amd started making drivers available directly from their sites. here is the link
