3 possibilities to get the Athlon system to a new speed record

workshop_slota

There are 3 possibilities to get the Athlonsystem to a new speed record: – You can carefully increase the FSB clock with SOFTFSB / BUSRACING / CPUBOOST and if it’s possible with your mainboard, adapt the Vcore a little. The advantage of this method is that you don’t have to open the case and you don’t need to use the soldering iron. The disadvantage is in the limitation of the CPU rate, because you should only pull up the FSB … Continue reading 3 possibilities to get the Athlon system to a new speed record

Calculate the maximum rate for the cache/memory

workshop_slota

Calculate the maximum rate for the cache/memory: You can easy estimate the maximum cache speed with these few steps. Look at your cache part and you’ll see some numbers on it like 12345-33 The last two numers will mean that you’ve 3,3ns cache. If there’s a 3-digit number at the end you don’t need to calculate something because it’s already the cache rate in MHz. Calculate the following formula to get the allowed ! values: 1 : 3,3ns * 1000 … Continue reading Calculate the maximum rate for the cache/memory

Highest overclocking results with AMD Athlon

workshop_slota

Highest overclocking results with Athlon: At this time the Athlon is the best overclockable CPU. But why is it possible to overclock this CPU so easy ? 99% of the Athlon core is much higher than labeled outside, my two first Athlon 500 have 650 cores inside. If you compare the price of the Athlon 500 and 650 Athlon it’s unbelievable what AMD put inside their CPUs. We don’t know the exact reason why AMD gives their customers this joy. … Continue reading Highest overclocking results with AMD Athlon

Power supply issues if you overclock your Athlon on eg. ASUS K7M

workshop_slota

Power supply issues when overclock your Athlon on K7M: You may get problems in overclocking your Athlon if you have small power supply unit !!! There’s a big label on your ASUS mainboard manual to use at least a 235W supply, but several pages later there is an other comment to use only above 250W – hmmm. It’s not a big difference between these values but it may be enough to get an instable Windows ! If you recall my … Continue reading Power supply issues if you overclock your Athlon on eg. ASUS K7M

AMD Athlon 500 Overclocking with Cachedivisor

Athlon500front-s

AMD Athlon 500 Overclocking with Cachedivisor Here are the AMD Athlon 500 Overclocking results with different cache divisor. Results from 17.01.2000: Now my second Athlon 500 CPU runs without any problems at 850MHz. I changed the cachedivisor to 1/3 instead of 1/2 to get the Athlon 50MHz higher. It’s questionable if it’s worth to increase CPU speed by decreasing the cacherate. But i notice only an insignificant difference between 1/2 Cache and 1/3 with benchmark programs like Final reality or … Continue reading AMD Athlon 500 Overclocking with Cachedivisor

Athlon500front-s

Gigabyte 7IX and MSI 6167 Overclocking Results Here are some Gigabyte 7IX and MSI 6167 Mainboard Overclocking Results. On 19.12.1999 we’ve tested two AMD Athlon 500 processors on 3 different boards. We got best results with the new ASUS K7M board. We had some problems to overclock the Athlon processor with the Gigabyte 7IX and MSI 6167 board: – It’s impossible to change CPU-Vcore by Jumper or BIOS. – We soldered the Vcore, but it failed to get results above … Continue reading Gigabyte 7IX and MSI 6167 Overclocking Results
