    My kit

    Casesystem: Vapochill PE
    CPU: P4 3.0C
    Mobo: Abit IC7-Max3
    Ram: Corsair XMS TwinX1024-PC4400
    Vid: ATI 9800XT
    Additional Cooling: Vaterchill NorthbridgeCooler and VidCooler + Aquacomputer radiator 2 x 120 mm and the one that comes with Waterchillsets + Waterpump Hydor L20.
    AirCooling: in total 7 x 120 mm + 2 x 80 mm including the one on waterchill and the one on Vapochill and two on raditor i the bottom of my case.
    PSU: Levicom 500W

    Vapo settings:
    Heaterload 50%
    Condenser 100%
    Startup temp -15 C
    Hold temp -50 C

    Max Clock:

    FSB: 240 MHz
    Multimplier: x 15
    Clock: 3.0@3.6 stable on PCMark04
    VCore: 1.7
    Strap: FSB800
    Ram timings: By SPD (3-4-4-8)
    Idle temp: Vapo -18 C CPU 2 C
    Load temp: Vapo -11 C CPU 17 C

    My problem is that my goal is to run at 4 GHz and why you may ask!! Because i should be able to, according to others.

    What am i doing wrong? What should i try??

    I'm pretty sure that 3.6 is as far as you're gonna get without some insane cooling (ie. refrigeration :shock: ).

    Soyoman: thats what he has he says he has a vapochill

    Shiva_fup: that may be the chips limit.
    or the RAM may not be stable, try increasing the VDIMM, dont be scared to fry the memory, it can probably take about 3.2volts without needing any cooling

    I was going based on the fact that his processors base clock is 3.0GHz. He currently has it OC'd at 3.6GHz. Therfore he won't get it much higher than 3.6GHz without going nuts on the cooling.

    Ok, cooling part retracted. I still don't think he'll get it much higher than he has it now, even if he increases VDIMM. I personally wouldn't risk frying memory just to get it to 4GHz either.

    Soyoman: I'm not trying to be tacky here, but that is exactly what seperates the enthusiast from the casual overclocker. :devil win

    The memory isn't even at its rated speed yet...
