Hello all. I had my Sempron 2800+(64) overclocked to about 1.9 GHz (normally 1.6). I was noticing a little bit of instability, and I also couldn't overclock any higher at all or I would get a kernel panick at boot.
I decided I should put a memory divider (hehe) on the ram. I think I did 7:8 or something in that range. And I could overclock much higher! I also noticed much stabler results.
However, I took a look at the cpu temperatures i was getting and they increased quite a bit!
Normally I was getting about 32 C idle , 39-40 C full load.
Now, I'm getting 42 C idle and 50 C full load.
I went back into the bios, and brought the overclock down to where it was before but left the memory divider where it was.
The temperature was the same! Should a memory divider really increase temperature?
