Re: Overclock program for amd athlon

When you buy a processor, or CPU, you will see it's operating speed. For instance, a Pentium 4 3.2GHz CPU runs at 3.2GHz, or 3200 MHz. This is a measurement of how many clock cycles the processor goes through in one second. A clock cycle is a period of time in which a processor can carry out a given amount of instructions. So, logically, the more clock cycles a processor can execute in one second, the faster it can process information and the faster your system will run. One MHz is one million clock cycles per second, so a 3.2GHz processor can go through 3,200,000,000, or 3 billion two hundred million clock cycles in every second.

Have you tried your BIOS settings?

Re: Overclock program for amd athlon

Overclocking is actually very bad and reduces the processor life, any way if you have a 2.8 Ghz processor there is no meaning for making it 3GHz or 3.2 ....If its like 3.6 then its ok if you can over clock more than 500-600Mhz more, depending on your system and cooling.

AMD ones are actully not made to be over clocked ( the spacial editions are)
But Intel ones can handle good overclocking, In ASIA / India they once started to sell Old 300-400mhz processors and overclocked them to 600 / 800!! and get more prize!!!
