Default ? about OCing

Ok every nows when u overclock then ur screen goes black u pump up the voltage...well i got my processor to run at 2.4 stable loading up XP and all that..but i loaded up CS and it shut off...the voltage was at 1.8 is that to much..and should i raise that nemore

I have a AMD 3000+ and how much voltage do u think it will fry at..I want to keep this processor for another year..so i dont want it to expload and burst into flames right now lol

This should be in the processor section..

EDIT>

In answer to your quesion.. I would say 1.8V is wayyy to high.

Well.. You have water right? Dont expect great things out of the 3000+

But just graduly increase and see what happens... Increase speed, and once it gets unstable increase the voltage. Just be cautious about what your doing.

ok, but i got it up to 2.4 on 1.8 should increase the voltage more to like 2 or will that burn out my processor?

How stable is it? And that might burn it. But hell.. maybe 1.9 first. And if its ok. Then increase clock more, and then the voltage to 2. Im not sure though. Dont trust my opinons.. because i could be wrong.

You put 3 in it.. And you will hear a small *pop*. Start to see a little bit of black smoke, and its going to smell horrible.

1.8 is going to limit the life of that CPU. Really, I wouldn't put more than about 1.6-1.7 volts into it. And yes, it could be your memory. Mess around with everything, keep an eye on temperatures, and put it through stress to see if it is stable.

And make sure to equally watch the FSB

Watch the FSB? Sure, it is best to keep it around 200 (for modern processors, including yours) because if you start going above that you have to start worrying about RAM timings, voltages, and other stuff that is confusing... However, AMD's do take a hit in performance when running a divider, but personally, it is the easiest for me to do.

ya thats what i was going to mention, you are running a divider right? otherwise your ram will be way to fast and the ram wont stay stable, i think u could get a decent overclock with some good cooling and if u know what you're doing, keep an eye on the temperatures and the speed of your ram while u raise the fsb

Is your RAM 1GB or 2x512MB. I had a 1GB stick of Corsair XMS. It didn't overclock too well. If you want good OCing RAM, get the OCZ Platinum Rev. 2 2x512MB. Those can go to 300MhZ. Also, like gaming_freak said before me, you could always run a divider. It will allow you to increase the FSB of the CPU without increasing the memory clock as much.
