    I have a P4PE motherboard with a 2.4b p4 . It shows it as only running at 1.8 and I would like to get it up to 2.4 if possible. I have a 480w power supply and a 512mb of pc 2700 ram (make that corsair). Can anyone give me some good suggestions as to to the settings to use without cooking it? Thanks

    Check your FSB speed. It may be set at 100mhz instead of 133.:cheers:
    What the fcuk happened to my sig?

    Hey I have the same setup as you p4pe mb, 2.4b proc. I used the stock intel cpu cooler and I'm running at 166fsb x 18 = 2988mhz - totally stable. I have the cpu voltage set on auto. What is really neat is the cpu runs at 33C no load and 50C while playing UT. I have 512m crucial ram ddr2700 - running the memory on 'auto'
    I have an ATI 9000 pro which i have oc to 315/330 my 3dmark score is 9800.
    Try getting the latest flash for the MB from asus. You should have to do much tweaking at all to get it up to 3ghz. The average score for this proc is 3ghz!!!
    Pretty sweet.

    Thanks for the replies. Sure enough my FSB was set at 100. I bumped it up to 133 for now giving me 2.4. I have a decent fan that came with my mobo/processor combo and am in a basement where it is quite cool. I am awaiting my radeon 9700 pro and when I get that, my system should be rocking. I may try to bump the FSB up to 150-162 in the near future. So you all think its ok without special cooling to do this? Also I have heard other components can have problems with OC'ing , particularly Maxtor hard drives, which is what I have. You think I should update the bios? I know Asus has a nice system, whereas even if there is a problem with flashing the bios, it has some failsafe built it. If so, I may use the utility included to update it.

    the asus update prog that came with your mb will update the bios AND the intel chipset drivers - so DO IT!
    Also my case temp is 22C with only 2 case fans one in / one out and they are both thermally controlled so they are running near min. speed ~1000 rpm intake / 1300rpm out - real quiet!
    I have maxtor 40g 7200 and a wd 80g 7200 hard drives. The oc will only make your cpu run hotter.

    I recently bumped it up to 150mhz fsb , which puts me at 2.7ghz, however, I left the Memory Frequency at 300mhz. I think one option with 150mhz fsb was 400mhz. Is this too high for corsair PC2700 333mhz ram? Any recommended settings for CPU External Frequency, Memory Frequency, CPU Vcore , DDR Reference Voltage and AGP VDDQ VOltage? One final question.. I hear Asus Mobo's have a problem properly relating the processor and ram temperatures. Any truth to this or does anyone know of anywhere to get some solid info regarding this? Thanks!

    Well, it's worth a shot trying it :) Up your vdimm from say 2.5 to 2.6 and try it... if it's unstable, try upping your vdimm up from 2.6 to 2.7.... Some ram overclocks better than others, i've seen a few 333mhz ddr sticks not hit 400mhz (but only a few not hit it), and tons of sticks hit 400mhz and some even as high as pc3500 (ddr434).
