View Full Version : Has anyone fried a A64 due to running a high FSB
07-02-05, 07:55 AM
I fineally figure out how to overclock my A64 and I was wondering when running such a high FSB has it caused anyone any problems.I seen alot of people running at high FSB but I don't think I have seen anyone cook one yet or mess something up.

Noob my self at OC Athlon 64 , but im sure you just need to keep your eye on temperature's and don't overvolt.
I read complaints from people that OC pc with failed Motherboard chipset fan does get fried.
Nope, i have also had my FSB on my 3200+ do 400MHz HTT aka 800MHz DDR with memory at 2:1
I have never fried a chip from overclocking... I have gone through a few motherboards though ;)

I agree with jakup; overclocking damages motherboards more easily than CPUs.
your ram will be damaged before your proc gets damaged on ocing. i would say the max though is around 320FSB (actual not htt or any of that crap of course). i would be willing to bet that the proc wont be able to make that though, most can't.
overvolting is a serious problem though. with any 64bit cpu about 1.6vcore is highest you'll want to go.
Depends apon the chips used most people don't go over 1.65v but does depend on which core being used new it ok to 1.7v although heat will become a problem.
Wow Kamel you are a freaking murder thats alot of heardwhere you have killed off, The only thing that The only stuff thats died on me is, is a Celeron 500, 128MB SD Ram, ASUS S370 board, which my mate killed when he clumisy enough to scratch the metal on the case killing the lot. Needless to say i won't let him go near ANYTHING now. And also my IBM 80GB Deathstar diying every 9 months on the trot like clock work for 2 1/2 years.
I ran my p4 3.0 at 1.75v all day an never had a problem :) Most people thought I was nuts. I have run my memory up to 3.5v.
My Winchester is running at 1.65v right now.

I've never physically fried a chip when overclocking, whether on AMD or Intel platform. I have killed the CPUs lifespan due to consistent high overclocks w/ high volt settings, but that's about it. I mean check out my current specs in my sig, that's major volt into my CPU as is, and all is good.........for now :D
