MS-6702 (socket 754) + Athlon64 3400 Clawhammer
« on: 21-October-08, 08:32:27 »

I finally decided to install vista on this system and only just discovered this.
My 3400 (rated at 2.2ghz) is running at 2.0ghz. On the motherboard page it shows that it supports 200fsb / 11x multiplier but there is no option to change the multiplier in my bios (newest version is 2.2).

CPU-Z shows:

CPU: Athlon 64 3400+ (revision SH7-CO)
Core Voltage: varies due to Cooln'Quiet
Core Speed: 800mhz - 2.0ghz
Multiplier: 4x - 10x
Bus Speed: 200mhz
HT Link: 800mhz
Cache: (64, 64, 1024)
DRAM freq: 200mhz
PC3200 - 2.5,3,3,8

My bios settings are CPU FSB at 200mhz, voltages at Auto

I've never been big on OC'ing and I never used this system intensively to care much about the performance, but I'd like to finally get that extra 200mhz. What do I need to do?

I have a 550w Enermax psu with 36A on the +12v rail in case anyone thinks it's a power issue.

Are you sure that the CPU is 3400+ and not 3200+?
Can you post the CPU OPN code?
Have you done >>Clear CMOS Guide<< with power cord removed?

I've got it running at 2.2ghz now, but I had to manually set the voltage to 1.5v and turn off Cooln'Quiet.
I'm really not sure why I'd have to do that especially since I love Cooln'Quiet, but I've never seen it go above 2.0ghz with it on.

Where can I find the OPN code? I'm almost certain it's a 3400 - it was purchased from Fry's Electronics sometime ago. I know they have a reputation of faulty items, but they wouldn't sell me fake parts.

  • There's always a risk.

It is printed on the processor chip. If you want to learn that way you have to reseat the processor.
Not sure, if you and Fry's saved any receipts or documents of the purchase you might learn that way, too.

But Bosskiller has a good nose for things like this.  :smile:

I on the other hand change so slowly. Do not want 2.5..... settings for the memory with FSB 200, want 3.... settings.

"FSB:DRAM": CPU/10, is that Automatic setting?

Won't windows display the CPU type by looking in the Properties tab of My Computer in the General tab? Or is that not accuratly displayed for all CPU'S. Just a thought I had while reading this post.

Run CPU-z it will show exactly what CPU you have.

If you are using a Clawhammer CPU, do NOT use bios 2.2. It is NOT a good bios for this board in combination with this type of processor.

Fall back to version 1.9 and you'll probably be fine.
You have a Q-Tec Power Supply? Change that first and come back later...
