CPU overclocking Problem

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have an Intel Celeron 1.7GHz single core (PGA 478). It's in a Dell Optiplex GX260 and I found a software that OC's it. I can get it up to 2.0GHz without problems. It has no heat monitor, so I know I aint puling 3GHz out of it until I get a new PC. The only Problem(s) I have is that when I reboot or turn it off even sleep it wont come back on with any post, that's annoying. I usually keep it on 24/7 but when i uninstall/ect. it's stupid. Also, when I get past 2.2GHz It freezes and Have to force it off. I know it can do it. Before I had this up to 2.6GHz and now it won't do it. I know all the parts are good. (This software OC's RAM also)

first off...Welcome to OCN thumb.gif

hard to say what is happening without knowing temps
I'm sorry but not familiar with your mb...but i would guess that it's not stable enough to boot at your oc settings...even though you can get it to run already in windows smile.gif

I'm having problems overclocking my Pentium D 2.8Ghz.

When I clock it over 3Ghz it wont start up. Just blank black screen.
Mobo has crash free bios, I just have to hold power button for 5 seconds and it resets bios, after that it boots up normally.


I'm running on
Asus P5G41T-M LX (2 weeks old)
Pentium D 2.8Ghz (S775)
2x2GB DDR3 1333Mhz (O.C) G-skill (2 weeks old)
Nvidia GT430 2GB latest drivers
Win7 64bit with latest updates.
Bios is latest : 07/27/11 Ver. 08.00.14
500W EZcool

With my old Gigabyte mobo I could clock it up to 5.4 Ghz and temps were on 80C on max load. Too bad i sold it.

I found a program called Everest and gave me the temps. The temps are around 33C Idle and when I played GTA 3 for a few hours it got up to 42C stock.
When OC to 1.9GHz it was 34C Idle and 46C

Maybe if you raise the voltage to the CPU. I'm not sure for the range on the Pentium D's. That should work, i'm used to OCing in the Bios but after a move we had my good one it broke.

Voltage control is on auto, with old mobo that worked... another useless thing ?
