    Hi Suicide,

    I like to thank you in trying to get my 2.4 to overclock to 2.8. Although, without success, I really thank you for your replies and effort.

    I have tried FSB=156, with Vcore ranging from 1.6 through to 1.7 in increments of 0.025. As soon as I run 3DMark2001, it will crash back to desktop. With FSB=150, it's stable without any problems whatsoever.

    I guess I am happy with 2.7, as it's better than nothing. As you can see, I am a newbie to overclocking.

    Cheers,

    Johnny.

    I followed your directions and I'm running good.

    Now since I'm new... if I up the clock more, how much do I change the other numbers with respect to the others?

    Thanks guys 2.7 is runninig smooth.... and cool = 34c

    A lot will depend on hardware but another 0.5v increase on the core and then take another step but I don't think that I'd go past 1.7v on the core though or memory past 2.7v. ;)

    Sorry to hear that man... Guess it all comes back down to certain procs and mobo's overclock better than others :(

    Yeah as I have a feelin' that I'm not goin' to get mine over that 150MHz mark either. :(

    Ok I have had enough my fsb won't go higher than 140 without getting unstable my stupid ancient A7A266-E is annoying me and I have decided to get a new mobo, since my new ddr 2700 ram only runs as good as 2100 in my mobo (cos thats the highest it supports) according to sisoft sandra.

    Any suggestions for a good ( relatively cheap) motherboard that is good for overclocking (i'm talking about ram, cpu voltage change, ratio between agp/pci/ram and fsb good voltage increments like 0.25)

    I need some good advice here people. :afro:

    :cheers:

    Let's see now, a cheap upgrade mobo suitable for ya current hardware but overclocks well, that could be this. ;)

    That's really weird man I dunno.. Sold a few 2.4B's (1.8's are a hot item heh) that overclock extremely well (3ghz mark). (Systems I sell use Albatron PX845PEV Pro's and PX845PE Pro II's unelss someone wants something different.) I've sold a few boxes pre-overclocked (yes they knew heh, was told to get it as high as it could go stable :D) on an MSI 6566E Max mainboard (2 of these particular systems (pre overclocked)) and the proc's topped out at 150mhz, but when I was building 'em I put 'em in the px845pev pro i use here at work, and the 2.4, and got it clocked to 3.042ghz, running stable in windows under 100% load for 2 days straight. Case had good airflow, used volcano 7+'s ... dunno gotta be the board I'd think (granted some batch's might not clock as high) bah i'm just rambling on now :) I'll shut up.

    I don't mind you're rambling, if it gets me faster ! lol

    You don't happent to remember all the settings you used for that do you, for memory, agp, v.core, and clock?

    You think I wouldn't hehe Ya I do :) CPU Vcore raised from 1.525 to 1.675, FSB 169mhz, DDR running 2.5x (422.5mhz) Samsung ram (didn't write down any batch/model #'s at the time I built the machines for ram or cpu), ddr voltage to 2.7. AGP voltage running at 1.5 (if they wanna overclock their agp bus that's fine with me, but I lock the agp/pci bus frequency at 66/33, thus not needing to up voltage).

    Both those systems to which I speak left working 100% stable after 2 days of cpu burn in... One of the systems full specs were:

    P4 2.4ghz @ 3.042ghz w/ volcano 7+
    Albatron PX845PE Pro II
    512MB (single stick) Samsung DDR400
    Radeon All in wonder 9700 pro 128mb
    2x 120gb wd w/ 8mb cache (raid 0+1)
    52x24x52 burner, 16x dvd, lala other stuff always included

    And actually, the guy who I sold that too was in today looking for some accessories and asked him how his machine is running... Says his proc is at 3.07ghz right now and running stable (1.725v vcore) He was unsure of his exact cpu temp under 100% load or i'd have posted that (guessing around 35 - 40 C as that's what mine runs when oc'd 790mhz above stock speed).

    Again might come down to board overclocking better than some others dunno for 100%. But I've yet to use a px845pev pro or a px845pe pro ii that don't overclock to at least 169mhz fsb stable w/ good cooling (that i've tested, not taking others words for it :D).
