    A8N-E, Venice Overclocking

    I bought myself an A8N-E recently, with a 3000+ Venice core. I read a review about the 3000+ Venice, and the reviewer was able to overclock the 3000+ Venice up to 2700mhz, with stock cooler. Read this to see the benefits of a Venice core for overclocking.

    Since I dont got my X800 XL yet, and without any PCI-E card at my hands, I will have to wait till I get my new 3d card. So my question is, has anyone had the chance to overclock, or has heard of the overclocking potential of the A8N-E with a 3000+ Venice?

    My 3200+ tops out at 2.6GHZ with almost the same setup. 2.7 on the stock cooler is probably a stretch for most.

    Again no 3000+, but my 3200 also goes to 2600 on the A8N-E here with around 1.5 and even less I think. Have never run it higher, nor run it there with stability because was using a stock cooler at the time.

    Just a FYI, there have been reports of A64's losing their overclock ability over time with high vCore use.

    I got an X2(paired with the A8N-E) and my max CPU OC is around 2500 and the max I can POST at with memory is around >320. Trying to balance out now but keep running into issues. Love the board though.

    Re: A8N-E, Venice Overclocking

    Well I just assembled the system, it seems like I can't overclock it unless i raise the fsb, the multiplier will not go over 9!

    Is there a way to unlock the Venice?

    No. All A64 processors (except the FX) are locked above the default multiplier. Only lower multipliers are available. Might want to look at the overclocking links in the sticky post->A64 Specific.
