    Post Need a hand with your ASUSp4p/p4c 800?

    Im relatively new to the overclocking scene, but Ive been around enough to know that for a new guy, things that might seem old hat to everyday power users can be confusing to us n00bs.

    Ive been working for quite some time with the asus series p4p/p4c motherboards, and have experimented with a range of cpus.

    Ive searched at length on guides and resources all over the internet that pertain to optimal settings for these components, specifically.

    If there's enough intrest, I'll work on a step by step guide of my misadventures and post it here, detailing the steps and tricks that I used to get the most out of this hardware.

    Im offering this because, well, I only wished someone would take the time to explain the fine art of tweaking these diamond in the rough pieces of hardware.

    Im well aware of the fact that these components are hoplessly obsolete, but Im sure that since this was by FAR the most popular 478 motherboard, there's still a large number of people out there that want to skip the endless upgrade cycles and tweak their current rigs to perfection.

    That is afterall, the essence of overclocking, is it not?

    My main system specs, current as of today:

    Asus P4P800 DELUXE
    2.8E Ghz Prescott, Running at 3.6Ghz Stable, FSB 1024
    2x512 OCZ Premier3200 2.5-3-3-6, Running at 428 Dual Channel, 5/4
    Asus N6600 128 GT
    Enermax 400w Noisetaker
    Coolermaster Hyper48 Copper CPU cooler

    Again, if anyone is interested, please reply.

    I think there are already guides out there to help people overclock. I think there is on on this site too.

    you got the 800fsb to 1024 ?? can you post a screenshot of cpuz showing your settings please ? And thats a very healthy oc on the cpu you have there, I have been to 3.85gb with mine for benching, but I dropped it back to stock for everyday use. How are your temps at that oc?

    Asian, I think you're missing the point. What Im offering is to put together a detailed guide of how I tuned this specific hardware, and what I've found to work best, simply work, or not work at all.

    Obviously overclocking guides exist. They're all over the internet. If they were the be all and end all of all hardware and circumstance, this forum itself would be redundant, would it not?

    Anz, Ive actually had the fsb higher, but takes multiple boots to even load xp, let alone run stable. I will most certainly post a cpu-z screen. My temps @ 1024 are 42-44 idle, 54-58 under heavy load.

    Again, all on modest, but well mapped air cooling.

    Here it is.. I knocked the bus down a tick because it was one down from being unstable under heavy load..

    I swear my keyboard batteries were dying when I typed in the thread topic. Im not that illiterate, I swear

    .. so anyways, I was doing some final stability tests before I closed my case up for good.. and my system, sensing its days of being molested by tweaks were coming to an end, decided it would tempt me to tweak further, by overclocking itself to a word record and supercomputer speed of 341.19 GHZ. BEAT THAT AMD!

    Who says prescotts run too hot? Check out the temps under full load @ that speed... At 1.48 vcore! lol on air cooling! that screencap wasnt touched up.. its the real deal.. Although Im thinking cpuz MAY have exagerrated the actual speed by a ghz or two.. Too bad it didnt last long enough for me to validate :|

    I'd take a 60 degree temp under load for speeds that high .. besides, its still 9 degrees under spec :D
