Thread: Overclocking 2.8Ghz P4

    I just purchased a Pentium 4 2.8Ghz, 800FSB, 512k cache- and I was curious how high I could safely overclock it on the new motherboard I got.

    It has a VIA PT800 Northbridge and VT8237 Southbridge Chipset.
    I have 1 gig of Kingston HyperX RAM, but its only at PC3200.

    I appreciate any help.

    First question, does it have built in frequency controls in the Bios. If it does, then that's where you start. It should have everything you need to adjust your voltages and frequencies on both the CPU and your memory.

    I also run a VIA motherboard and they are renouned for their easy overclockability. Just make sure you watch your temperatures and don't go past the recommended voltages. Otherwise you'll fry your board.

    Edit: Incidentaly, was the motherboard produced by VIA Mainboard or another company like Chaintech or Soyo. That'll help narrow the Bios type down.
