  1. cpu: amd athlon 64 x2 5000+ @ 2,6 (2,8)
    motherboard: ECS a770m-a
    RAM: 2gib (ddr2 dram freq. 408,7) x2
    graphics: nvidia geforce 8600gt (core 587mhz, shaders 1291mhz, memory 446mhz)

    cpu: amd athlon 64 x2 5000+ @ 2,6 (2,8)
    bus speed is 220 and multiplier 13
    i want to increase bus speed but on 225mhz it is crashing often
    and i want to rise volt but in bios are two choises
    cpu = 0 (1=+5mv up to 60=+300mv)
    dimm = 5 (1=+10mv up to 63=+630mv)
    witch one i should rise and how much

    Hi TheDumbass,
    for the x2 5000, right around 225 @ 2.9 is the limit for them. for a vast majority of those CPU's raising the core voltage does not help to attain a higher OC.
