ok, here goes... im just about to start to do some very mild overclocking to my CPU, just a couple of megahertz at a time because ive never done it before but what i was wondering was, at what clock speed do you guys think i should go up to at maximum with a stock fan on an AMD Athlon64 3500+ Winchester at 2.2ghz thanks EDIT: Ok so i just downloaded ntune which completely fookered up my PC, so i got rid of it so im not gonna bother now plz delete this thread thanks

Well, do you have a temature measuring gague on your Pc? check that tempature it is it more that 50c idle then don't mess with it. If it is lower you can raise the bus a few mhz and gain like 50 or 60mhz in speed.

You shouldnt have used some utillity to overclock from within windows, its a poor way to overclock and can cause problems. If you are going to overclock you should do it from BIOS. In any case.. because i have a AMD athlon 3000+ myself, i did some reading about the subject and found out i could (and am going to) overclock my 1.8Ghz cpu up to 2.4Ghz without having to buy a new fan, and just alter the core voltage slightly. I suggest you dont rush trough this, read some guides, check benchmarks and overclock reviews for your cpu and learn how to do it before you touch your cpu.. but in the end you can get alot more performance out of your cpu. AMD athlon 64's are great for overclocking. Google is your friend. ;)

I dont think it can ever be fast enough, thing is with these new cpu's is that you can get *alot* more performance out of them.. meaning you save money.

About the temp, I was going to edit, but it would not make sense. AMD says about 65c-70c for the AMD64. I would stay below 60 to be safe:D BTW: how far can you overclock an AMD64 +3000?

From 1.8Ghz to about 2.1Ghz with stock fan and voltage. Upto 2.4Ghz with a minor increase of core voltage, everything runs stable.. from then up.. tis possible but its suppost to take alot of efford. Rumors say.. possible 900mhz overclock, but im skeptical. It also depends on the type of cpu, "Venice" has an edge over "Winchester" for example.

is 1.8Ghz to 2.1Ghz for the Winchester or Venice? so your saying you can clock a 3000+ (1.8Ghz) up to almost a 3500+ (2.2Ghz) with stock cooling and voltage? oh and do you have any idea how high you could overclock a 3700+ San Deigo?
