Default My first overclock is it safe(screenshots)

need some advice on my oc
I have a amd 5400 x2 athlon black edition
I changed the fsb higher slowly and became familiar, doesnt seem like much but to me its better safe than sorry

temps are at a constant 35 celsius, well never got much of a load on it but maybe it will rise to 45max which doesn seem bad.

board is a
m2n32 sli deluxe
i did everything in the bios

heres the screen shot
of it stock factory and oc, the pc probe that asus uses says i get some weird v core voltage or abnormal



well heres what it said

that's a pretty good overclock for that chip. good job. as long as your temps are stable and under control then you should be fine and have nothing to worry about.

yeah thanks alot
ive heard you can get it to 3.3 on air easily if your temp dont rise and have sufficiant airflow in ur case

I got a great cpu cooler and 5 case fans. I beileve have a good air circulation in my case.

Im just reading on how to overclock my memory and video card

btw is it better to change the multiplier or fsb on the cpu to overclock

My Mobo is VERY finicky about changing the FSB at all some I am stuck with upping my multiplier. Some of the best over clock's are achieved by finding a compromise between to two to create a more equal load on the components.

high external clock and low multiplier will be faster. but harder on the components.

Raise Bus speed to 228 and see if it boots.

how does it perform with prime95? What are you using for cooling? You have some prety low idle(?) temps.
