8KDA3J & A64 3000+


I've just ordered a EPoX EP-8KDA3J and a A64 3000+ (Newcastle) and I'm wondering how the overclocking works on this board. I am new to Athlon64 so I don't know how the HTT and FSB should be set up.

HSF: Thermalright SLK948 +PAPST 92MM FAN W/49.4CFM
Memory: TwinMos 512MB PC3200 CL2.5
GPU: RADEON 9500@9700 (340MHz/285MHz)
Sound: Audigy 2

What kind of overclock should I aim for with this setup, and what options in the BIOS should I alter?

Thanks in advance for any answers!

On air you should get about at least 2.3 - 2.4GHz CPU speed and utilising lower multiplier and your memory clock should see at least 290MHz HTT at CAS 3.

It really is a case of suck it and see though - the board will do whatever you're components can - it'll easily do 2.8GHz CPU and 300MHz + HTT if you're cooling and memory is upto the task.
If you need EPoX BIOS eeproms in the UK, goto
