    I'm extremely new to overclocking and I need help. I have a GIGABYTE GA-8IRXP motherboard that I would like to overclock. Can someone tell me how to do it, or help me to locate a guide. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx

    Before you get started take a look at this article;
    http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/54/25024.html

    Make sure you have that F7 BIOS at a minimum - seems they are actually up to an F9 version now.

    Here is a good overclocking guide, though it states AMD - the principles are exactly the same for the P4;

    You have a great overclocking board. fsb, multiplier, and cpu and memory voltage are adjustable. A quick search of google did not find a specific o/c guide.


    first figure out how to monitor cpu temp. If there is not a utility for that on the mobo CD, try Motherboard Monitor (mbm).

    Raising fsb raises cpu mhz and increases memory speed. Increasing multiplier only increases cpu speed. Basically you want the highest fsb possible that will boot the machine without temps being too high. If you get to a point where higher fsb wont work, try higher voltage to either the cpu or memory or both. After you are at the limit of fsb, try increasing multiplier a step at a time, again with higher voltage if necessary.


    Overclocking is very much trial and error, and it is possible to fry stuff and corrupt your bios, tho your board has a very nice dual bios setup. Have fun.

    braindonor, the last time I checked, the multiplyer of an intel chip couldn't be changed....just AMD

    maybe i'm wrong then, but the last time i had a pentium rig the multipier was locked....i could change it in the bios if I really wanted to but it would help anything since the chip couldn't be changed. (pIII 555 and pIII 933)

    anyway, here is a TT guide to oc a p4:

    Correct-a-mundo!

    Modern Intel chips are for all practical purposes locked at the factory - except for a handful of testing CPU's that are not even available to the general public.

    Now why, oh why, didn't I post this link before:?:

    OCin a P4 would be fun but shouldn't all intels really be thrown in the sea? Sorry, like my AMD.

    Get out with ya as they can still crunch SETI w/u's (though be it a bit slower than an Athlon). :D

    The multiplier is only adjustable so that you can force the proper value in the event that the board can't automatically configure for your processor. It's uncommon, but a possible problem that is easily fixed by allowing for adjustments to be made to this setting.

    However, the processors themselves are all locked (except for those very few that get out to media and select sources directly from Intel... they are engineering samples). On top of that, Intel processor cannot be unlocked.
