How do I over-clock my cpu?
#1
I have a Vista 64bit PC with a AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+ 2.70 GHz.

I have never done over clocking. How do I start, and what can I expect?

Overclocking is all done in the bios, usually when your pc boots you press del before window loads to access the bios

type overclocking for noobs/begginer in google

It's an AMDX2, don't even bother attempting to overclock, you'll get 200-300MHZ at max lol.

Not the same processor, don't follow this.

The Name was Same From AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor to this, i thought that they will have same BIOS.

It doesn't matter about the CPU, they're both using the same chip..

It's the BIOS that'll be different..

The CPU's are the same chip.

However the BIOS is deterimed by the motherboard.
I see you didn't know so I'm not going to flame you ClosedeyesClosedeyes

Yeah, but you also have to be careful and make sure you can use all the same voltages and whatnot. Idk, I wouldn't risk following that vid.

AMD's can take far more voltage than Intel CPU's, I had a test with 1.65V going into my Phenom II, alas I couldn't get it higher than 3.6GHZ stable so I left it.

This depends entirely on the processor, not the company. Some models take over-voltage quite well, some won't boot if there's a 0.01 V variance.

But over-volting is something that should be left to advanced users, not first-time OC'ers. It's one of the few things you can do that has the potential to destroy hardware, I've lost a few CPUs this way Sad
