Overclocking the AMD A64 4200+ AM2 Processor

4200+ AMD Features

The 4200+ AM2 processor comes from the factory with a clock frequency of 2.2GHz.  This means that the processor is running an HTT of 200 with a multiplier of 11 to reach the rated speeds.  The stock voltage on the CPU is 1.35V and as you will soon see the core can go well above that on air!

We started off at all default settings to make sure that our test platform was up and running okay.  Using CPU-Z to confirm out BIOS settings we found that our computer was up and running just like a default 4200+ AM2 processor should be.

Image Description

Who wants to run default clock speeds?  Let’s first try overclocking without touching any of the voltages. Note that in the above image the voltage is set to 1.35V, but CPU-Z only reads it as 1.232V on the processor.  Keep in mind that the CPU-Z images show lower voltages than what we set in the BIOS.
