    Default The Intel 630 4ghz Project

    I am overclocking right now. It would greatly help me out if you guys could guide me along the way.

    I am using the following
    CPU- Intel 630 3ghz cooling via Thermaltake Blue Orb II
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116198
    Ram - OCZ 26672048ELDCGE-K 2GB Kit DDR2-667 PC2-5400 Gold Edition 4-4-4-8
    http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...ductCode=85206
    Motherboard - ASUS P5WD2 Premium
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131534


    After many hour of installing stuff and a little burn in I ran my first test.


    3.53Ghz was not stable



    3.6



    Im running mine at 3.6ghz 250x15 1.435V in bios but I get 1.51V Idle in Windows.
    I can't seem to move up any at all. Any Ideas?

    I know your going to need some better cooling if you are already running 52C under load at stock speeds. It's gonna take more than 1.46v to get there as well. Also, once you get up there to the almost 1Ghz overclock, 100mhz steps are probably too big. It seems to take more tinkering around in the bios once you really get up there. (Trust me, I have the trusty old 2.4C overclocking monster)

    nevermind, the higest I can get it is still 242fsb 3.6ghz with standard ram timings. I ran memtest86 last night and got an error on one of my sticks so i think im going to send it back for some diffrent ram. Does anyone know if having a bad stick of ram can limit the overclock even if you are running the ram at rated speed?

    I hope this is the case because no matter what I do I can not get past 242 fsb.

    RAM errors can cause a number of issues and that is a possibility.

    I switched both sticks of ram in each other's place and ran memtest86 for 9 hours with no errors. so maybe it was a fluke.
    Anyways...

    Here is a current screen of my overclock. I am at 4ghz now :D wOOT! I'm just trying to get prime to be stable.

    I went from 6mins, to 10mins, to 20mins to 1 hour 40 mins of being stable, each time upping the cpu voltage by 1 notch.

    Now I am at 1.475V and have not ran prime yet. I hope it will stay stable at this voltage.

    I get 41C idle and 61-63C Load it has gone up to 65C but it goes back down.

    I am running 3.75Ghz right now for 27\7 use at 1.45V 4ghz is fine for most games (BF2, Quake 4, UT2004) but has crashed a few times in windows when using ventrilo (althought it might be my craapy soundblaster driver)

    and when I played TOCA3 with all the Starforce checking everything it crashes about 5 mins into the game.

    I think 3.75 with overclocked x1800XT 685\795 will be fine for gaming untl newer games come out or I can get a better cooler and Power supply.

    As for benchmarks. At 4ghz , ram @ 712Mhz , x1800xt at 680/794 I get

    3dmark 2003 = 17944
    3dmark 2006 = 4452
    Quake 3 "Fast" = 418fps
    Super PI 1MB = 31 secs

    Does that seem about right?

    However this is NOT 24\7 stable with all programs and games so I'm not going to leave it at this.

    Did you say that you have a 4ghz proc?!?!?!

    P4s have been reaching 4GHz for years now. Some of the newer ones can practically do it on air now. It's actually better to have a 3+Ghz Core Duo or Opteron, both of which are easier to get than a 4GHz P4. That said, it is just plain cool to say you have a 4GHz P4.
