Advice 1: How to overclock AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor

After the purchase many users have the desire to know the true capabilities of your computer. One way to increase performance is overclocking the CPU, i.e. the setting of the motherboard under the more powerful, compared with the installed processor.
How to overclock AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor
It must be remembered, however, that the process of distillation of the processor is quite dangerous and if proper care and attention can lead to instability, failure and even system damage. If you're new to the topic of overclocking (from the English. overclocking - the overclocking), you need to understand the instructions for your processor and other hardware, it is also desirable to find the jumper/jumpers/BIOS that is responsible for the FSB frequency, the memory bus, the multiplier, divider for PCI and AGP.
"Filling" of the AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor is a crystal that combines two cores, each of which has its own L2 cache. For processors AMD Athlon is the actual overclocking of the CPU based on the increase of the multiplication factor.

For testing the processor after the distillation you will need a program S&M or something similar. It is easy to find on the Internet. Download the program and install it.
The process of distillation starts in the BIOS. To enter the BIOS press DEL during the initial stage of system boot. Open the Power tab of the Bios Setup, in it select Memory Frequency and set to DDR400 (200Mhz). A reduction in the frequency of memory will allow you to reduce the level of limiting overclocking. Then save the changes use option Save changes and exit and then restart the computer.
After reboot again go to BIOS. Open the Advanced Chipset Features tab, and then select DRAM Configuration. In the window that appears for each item, instead of Auto, set the values that are right of the slash sign (/). That you will continue to push the limit of stable operation for your memory.

Again, exit to menu, Advanced Chipset Features, and look for HyperTransport Frequency. This option can also be called HT Frequency, or LDT Frequency. Select it and reduce the frequency to 400 or 600MHz (x2 or X3). Next, go to menu Power Bios Setup, select Memory Frequency and set to DDR200 (100Mhz). Again save the settings (Save changes and exit). After restarting - again in the BIOS.
Comes the interesting part - the overclocking of the CPU. Open Power menu, Bios Setup, select the CPU Frequency. Next you need to choose the item, depending on the BIOS version can have the CPU Host Frequency, CPU/Clock Speed, or External Clock. Increase the value from 200 to 250 MHz - that you are directly overclocking the processor. Again save the settings and boot the operating system. Run S&M and in the main menu, click "Start". If the verification system shows high stability, increase the value of the CPU Host Frequency on some items and test again system. Repeat steps until, until you find the optimal balance between overclocking and stability. You have reached the goal of your CPU overclocked.
Don't forget to monitor the CPU temperature, it is desirable to exceed 60°.

Advice 2: How to overclock CPU on Android

Almost every smartphone user on Android faced with a problem like "hang" of the phone, if you open multiple apps or ask smartphone more tasks at the same time. But if your favorite phone is not able to cope with any new toy? — frustration has no limits. This task will help to cope overclocking Android to higher frequencies.
processor for Android

Original Android smartphone has a built-in processor from the company Linux. It is adapted specifically for the Android OS and the frequency change is not provided by the manufacturer. So to overclock the CPU you need with the help of special programs. The most simple and interface is the program SetCPU and Antutu CPU Master. These programs can be easily downloaded from Google Play. To use them you must have Root–rights.

Overclocking using SetCPU


When the app SetCPU loaded on the smartphone screen will appear a window where you can select the scan mode of the device. Mode is "recommended" for normal users and "preset manual" for more advanced users. When you select the recommended scan mode, the program immediately gives the base frequency and the active mode of the processor. Increase the frequency to two times. Select the operating mode of the CPU to ondemand and put a checkmark in "set on boot". Put a check mark next to "set on boot", we affirm our actions and the system can make the settings after a reboot. To increase the maximum speed it is best in several stages. After a few days repeat the procedure, then the maximum frequency will increase in 4 times, causing the least harm to the device.

The overclocking of the CPU with Antutu CPU Master Pro

Antutu CPU Master Pro

This program has a free version, which distinguishes it from the paid SetCPU. The program's interface is almost similar to SetCPU. When it starts the screen shows the program window indicating the maximum and minimum CPU frequencies. Below shows the scale with a slider to adjust these frequencies.

In order for the smartphone was good at 3D games with high quality graphics and fast gameplay, you need to increase the maximum CPU frequency. To increase the speed of the interface and applications need to increase the minimum CPU frequency.

Overclocking on Android is quite dangerous. Most secure smartphone is to increase the frequency up to 30-40% as it does not greatly increases the CPU voltage. In any case, if you increase the CPU frequency the smartphone will be faster to preserve battery life.
