AMD Sempron 2400+ Processor safe chip temp and overclocking speed?
Posted on 2004-10-27
I have a new AMD Sempron 2400+ Processor and I know little about overclocking.
I see in my Phoenix AwardBIOS under Frequency/Voltage Control, there are CPU Frequency, CPU:DRAM Frequency Ratio, and DRAM Frequency.
I first was in XP Pro and saw in My Computer Properties was showing 1GHz. I went thru the bios and saw CPU Frequency at 100. I changed it to 200. The temp went up to 60C. I took it back down to 175 and now the idle temp is 55C. I'm not sure what the die temp is or how to check it.
Should my Ratio be 1:1? It only does Auto at 100 or 200 CPU Frequency.
And it 175 too much with ordinary cooling?
What should DRAM Frequency be? I set CPU:DRAM Frequency Ratio to 5:6. Does that help or hurt me?
