Recommended Posts

Below is what I have in 1 system. I would like to overclock this unit. Let me know what I can do. I have plenty of air flow in this unit. It is currently set up with 5 internal cooling fans besides what comes with the CPU and the P/S.

 

In-Win full tower Case with an Enermax ATX 12V model EG475P-VE power Supply

Asus P4G8x Deluxe Motherboard.

Intel P4-2.53Ghz (norwood processor chipset).

2 - 512MB PC3200 DDR Memory by Edge Memory.

ATI Radeon 9800 PRO 128MB AGP video card.

2 - Seagate Barracuda 60GB HD's.

Toshiba DVD-ROM SD-M1802 Unit.

Iomega 100MB Zip Drive.

Sony 3.5" Floppy Drive.

17" Vivitron Monitor. (looking to replace soon with a 19" LCD unit) current monitor is 10 yrs old.

Creative Sound Blaster Audugy 2 ZS Sound Card.

Creative Labs Inspire 7.1 T7700 8 Piece Speaker System.

HP300i DVD-Burner.

Antec Easy USB Bay 2.0 housing an Atech Pro III multiple Flash Card Reader (7 in 1) unit.

1 - Promise Technology Ultra ATA/133 TX2 Controller Card.

 

I currently run Windows XP Professional for the OS on the system, along with a bunch of different end user softwares.

 

Thanks.

Okay, this morning this is what I've done so far.

 

the cpu External Frequency (mhz) is at 133

 

I have moved from the above to 150 mhz to give me 2.849 from 2.533

I then moved it up to 155 mhz to give me 2.944

then I tried 160 mhz to give me 3.040 but it started to act unstable.

So I then tried 157 mhz to give me 2.983 but that was still acting unstable.

So I'm at 156 mhz to give me 2.964.

VCore is at 1.600

 

Isn't there anything else I should change to boost this up even more. From that website that was noted to me prior I see similiar setup pushing over the 3 mark with no problems.

 

Any more thoughts on how to get more power (juice)!!!

 

Thanks.

Okay here is what I have on the bios advanced screen

 

CPU Speed [manual]

CPU Frequency Multiple [19x]

CPU External Frequency (mhz) [156]

AGP/PCI Frequency Setting [auto]

CPU Vcore Setting [manual]

CPU Vcore [1.600v]

AGP Voltage [1.5v]

DDR Voltage [2.5v]

CPU Level 1 Cache [enabled]

CPU Level 2 Cache [enabled]

Bios update [enabled]

PS/2 mouse function Control [auto]

USB Legacy Support [auto]

OS/2 Onboard Memory >64M [disabled]

 

I just tried this with a vcore of 1.7 and the system would not boot.

 

What about this CPU Frequency Multiple? Can this field change? Does that help any?

 

What was meant by HSF? I'm not up on all of the short name terms.

Increase Memory Timings? How.

I have another machine doing the following:

 

Okay here is what I have on the bios advanced screen

 

CPU Speed [manual]

CPU Frequency Multiple [19x]

CPU External Frequency (mhz) [159]

AGP/PCI Frequency Setting [manual]

AGP/PCI Setting [66/33]

CPU Vcore Setting [manual]

CPU Vcore [1.600v]

AGP Voltage [1.5v]

DDR Voltage [2.5v]

CPU Level 1 Cache [enabled]

CPU Level 2 Cache [enabled]

Bios update [enabled]

PS/2 mouse function Control [auto]

USB Legacy Support [auto]

OS/2 Onboard Memory >64M [disabled]

 

This above setup has the Intel P4-2.53 unit running at 3.020 mhz. It is running at about 62 degrees fahrenheit.

 

But my other system which is 99% identical to this machine is only running at 2.864 mhz at about 64 degrees fahrenheit.

 

What else should I do at this point.
