ATTN: "Paul" ... by Sniper[_2_]
I ran SuperPI w/ 1,000,000 decimal point(s) while RightMark sat to the side. CPU Core Speed never dropped below 3199.97 & went as high as 3200.05. In addition, it ran the SuperPI calculations in 31.328 secs. To me it appears that the proc is running as it should ... think if I completely...

Problems w/ a Dual Core 6400+ ??? by Sniper[_2_]
I hope this is not too much of a dumb Q, but is there a way to find out if BOTH cores of a CPU are working properly, correctly, or even @ all? I am running a Black Ed. 6400+ (NEVER clocked or any other 'teasings' done) w/ a AC Freezer 64 Pro sitting atop it. It is just my PC seems way to slow...

Athlon XP2600+ Barton stuck in Safe Mode (1250MHz) by [email protected]
I have an old XP2600 as my main box. Been running great on an Asus A7N8X2 MB at 2.0something GHz. A few days ago I looked up some numbers to try overclocking it. I got it up to 2.33MHz but after a day or so it began locking up. When I tried setting it back to the original BIOS numbers it complains...

Performance difference on single vs multi core by [email protected]
I posted this originally on alt.comp.hardware.overclocking.amd Since there are a number of people over here that know about CPU's they might be able to enlighten me on what is happening here. I'm not picking on AMD, I just don't have any Intel's to test it on. We are seeing some significant...

How did I kill it - Althlon XP-M Overclock by Ian Riches
I've just seemingly killed my first processor due to overclocking - something I've done to ever processor I've owned since an Intel P90! It was an Athlon XP-M 3000+. I'd wound it up to about 2400MHz (13.5 x 178), but got some errors after an hour of Prime 95, so put it back to ~ 2300MHz (14 x...

Athlon XP3000+ overclock advice? by A. J. Moss
I have an Abit NF7-S2 (socket A) motherboard, whose BIOS supports FSB tweaking in 1MHz increments, but doesn't provide a way to change the CPU multiplier. I would quite like to take a second-hand AXDA3000DKV4D chip and tweak it to run at 13.5x166 = 2250MHz (it's been my experience that Barton CPUs...

Testing processor performance by [email protected]
I have been trying to test cpu performance using Nbench and have found that I get better results running XP on VMWare system using a quad core than I do on an XP system running a dual core AM2 5200+ or 5000+ .

Luckily my small psu can cope so I need not buy a bigger psu. Its ATI ide*controller is 30-40x...

Phenom 9850 Temperature Control by Peter van der Goes[_2_]
Please share your solutions. My 9850 is running at 2.7 GHz with CPU voltage set to 1.175V. In a well-ventilated case (25C), SpeedFan reports CPU at 54 - 56C with very little activity (web surfing, email, etc.) No, I haven't run a full-on stress test for fear of the obvious. I'm using a...

M3A with Phenom 9750 NB voltage by Rich[_13_]
Hello, I have an Asus M3A with a Phenom 9750 CPU. I have been told I need to set the NB voltage up in BIOS by +0.5v. I'm not sure which setting it is, but I think it may be "CPU-NB" voltage". If so, It is set to AUTO, and I have no idea what value the default is, so I can't figure the new...
