Improve Performance On My Amd X2 4800 With Socket 939

The Athlon 64 X2 4800+ CPU is a dual core processor designed by AMD. This CPU is compatible with the Socket 939 motherboard form factor. When released, this processor and the family to which it belongs were designed to provide a performance boost of up to 80 percent over the then-traditional single core AMD processors. Despite its age, there are several methods by which you may increase the performance of your AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ based PC.



1. Restart your computer. Press the "Del" key when prompted to do so in order to enter the BIOS screen.

2. Find the page in the BIOS that displays your RAM divider. Where this is found will vary by the make of the motherboard and the exact BIOS being used. Set this divider to a low value so that your CPU is able to scale in its own speed.

3. Locate the page in your BIOS wherein the CPU's Front Side Bus (FSB) value is displayed. Increase the FSB value in small increments. Increasing in large increments will likely cause extreme system instability. Make a note of each value.

4. Save and exit the BIOS. Use a system testing tool to check your PC's stability (see Resources). If your system is stable and you wish to further overclock, return to the BIOS and increase the FSB by another small increment.

5. Lower the FSB to its former value if your system becomes unstable.


6. Defragment your hard-drive to improve performance. Click "Start," then click "All Programs." Select "Accessories" from the list of options, then click "System Tools." Click "Disk Defragmenter," then click "Defragment Disk."

7. Close any unnecessary background programs. Launch the "Task Manager" by pressing the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys simultaneously. Click on unnecessary processes, click "End Task."

8. Make certain all of your device drivers are up to date. Navigate to the manufacturer's website for each component and check the latest driver version with the version you have installed. Check driver versions by clicking "Start," then clicking "Control Panel," then clicking "Hardware," followed by "Device Manager." Right-click on individual devices and click "Properties" to view driver information. Download and install the latest driver if it is more up to date than your currently installed driver.
