I've got a 1800+, A7V333, and a ThermalTake Volcano 12 w/ Arctic Silver 5 for cooling. I've already overclocked it from 1.533Ghz to 1.6Ghz. It's running at 47C full load due to seti@home, the MB is at 33C and it fan rpm is only 4800rpm (it can go up to 5500rpm, but is incredibly loud). I just a few questions:
1) Generally speaking what is a safe OC for this setup? 2) Is my multplyer locked, because when I change it in the bios, then check the CPU clock in windows there is no change. 3) If it is locked, how can I unlock it?
well since the multiplyer is locked I raised the fsb anyways. At 150Mhz it crashed a bit, but at 145 it's rock solid. Now my fan is only running at half speed and my CPU temp as settled on 49.5C, do you think I have enough thermal room to try raising the VCore? Or is my RAM (Samsung DDR-266) the limiting factor. Oh and my case temp is actually 30C, my intake fan was in backwards, lol.
