First OC after some advice

Post by Tewak » Mon Feb 11, 2008 8:55 am

Ok, so ive had my newish rig nearly two'ish months now, im pretty happy with it, ironed out almost all the bugs, Anyway, i have more ram(corsair) with me that ill be either replacing or using to bring dual up to 4gb overkill considering the nature of winxp but still its more than enough. So I'm thinking what kind of OC'ing can i do to my pc but keeping it with the stock cooling, and within a safe level

Heres what i have.

An52 Mobo (BIOS ID:12)
Amd 64 X2 dualcore 4000+ (brisbane)
currently 2gb ddr2 pc5300 in dual channel

CPU-z Read out since im not the most savvy person with jumper settings.

Just wondering about some options since ive never really been into the oc with any of my other pc's and just wondering what i could get out of this thing with it being on stock cooling

first off, do you have a 64bit OS? because 32 won't see all 4 GB(from what i hear)

i am not very familiar with that chip, but i would imagine that 2.6GHz will be easily achieved(with small Voltage adjustments)

No im using 32 bit atm, im going to upgrade to vista soon though probably. i understand that xp will only utilize about 3gb or so.

Im just trying to find out as much as i can for over clocking this thing without causing to much issue and without changing it from its stock cooling.

Found this for you. http://www.digital-daily.com/motherboar ... index3.htm

Board abit AN52 MSI K9A2 Platinum
Multiplier adjustment + +
HTT adjustable within 200 to 400 MHz (1) within 200 to 600 MHz (1)
Vcore adjustment within 1.35 to 2.0 V (0.025 V) within 1.376 to 1.656 V (0.04 V)
Vmem adjustment within 1.8V to 2.6V (0.05 - 0.1V) within 1.8V to 3.1V (0.05 - 0.2V)
Vdd adjustment within 1.2V to 1.6V (0.05-0.1V) within 1.125 to 1.525 V (0.025 V)
Vsb adjustment - -
Vht adjustable within 1.2 to 1.4 V (0.05 V) within 1.175 to 1.525 V (0.025 V)
PCI-E adjustment within 100 MHz to 150 MHz (1) -

We note the following traits of the motherboards at overclocking. First, abit AN52 wouldn't overclock at all; the maximum possible HTT speed = 216 MHz. We must admit that we received this board late last year with the BIOS version 10, but for the two months that followed the BIOS "grew up" to version 15, but still there aren't any improvements in the overclocking part. Therefore, we can conclude that either the chipset NVIDIA nForce 520 is absolutely not suitable for overclocking, or the engineers at abit have not yet learned how to "cook" it :-)
