    Default Overclocking guides

    I have a friend who is putting together a new system. He is wanting to do some overclocking but does not really have any experience in it.

    Can anyone out there point me to a good guide for this?

    He will be using a AMD64 3500, and an Abit AV8 mobo.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Renz is on a distinguished road

    The Athlon 64 is not the greatest overclocker and they have their multipliers locked. To overclock, simply increase the front side bus (fsb) in small increments (2 or 3 mhz) at a time and test thoroughly until stability is compromised. Then back down the fsb a few mhz until you regain your stability. Next increase the chip voltage and stat upping the fsb again, but more carefully. I won’t suggest going past 1.65V which is a 10% increase from stock. It’s a slow process especially with these new chips as their limits are not as clearly defined as the old Athlons. Another suggestion is not only get good memory and cooling, but a motherboard based on NVIDIA’s nForce chipset. Via was having some problems with a functional AGP/PCI lock but these usually get ironed out quickly.
