I will of course set the ram and the other things up too....but just bumping the fsb and hitting 2750 is pretty decent for a 939 3500 right? The temps went up to around 23 on cpu and 30 on system... i checked it on pc wizard and included program that was with mobo...both read around the same...I wonder exactly how far 3500's go too? Whats the average chip clock too? I read posts where they were proud of 2750, but that just seems silly. I just want to figure out close tp peak numbers, then set it in bios with ram ratios.....to around 1/2 the gain...to be safe. Thanks.
i did not bump voltage on chip either maybe that is why it did not heat up? Maybe I got a decent chip here, i had a pentium two that i fryed 3 or 4 mobos with and countless other parts,,,could not kill it,,,just everything it was attached too. Im not used to amd stuff at all, but i hear it is better for overclocking until recently. maybe intel core duos are good for it now that they changed some stuff.
