Intel P4 506 CPU & Abit AG8 Motherboard help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I currently have a Abit Ag8 motherboard and a Pentium 4 506 (2.66Ghz) CPU that is currently overclocked to 3.22Ghz (160 x 20). I need to know how can I push this Processor to higher speeds. I currently have the stock heatsink and fan, but I am going to get a better one ( any inputs ).....

I have upped the Vcore from stock to 1.4275 volts and also upped the Northbridge (1.80v) and DRAM (2.60v). What else can I try to get this processor to 3.8Ghz, which is roughly a 190 FSB setting. Right now I could go higher with the current settings to a 170 FSB setting, but the system will become unstable with BSOD's.

Need any input on aftermarket heatsink and fan and also input on getting the processor higher with or without a new heatsink and fan. What settings has anyone else who has this motherboard tried? I am looking for some good responses here so please help a fellow member out with alot of input!!!!!

THANKS
My System

Like everyone is going to say go for the Big Typhoon, especially since it has dropped in price a lot, if not you can get an Arctic Silencer 7 for cheaper. I recommend if you can find one, a tuniq tower.

Big Typhoon for sure, works even better with a 3rd party fan on it. I do think the Big Typhoon VX just came out but its more expensive and aside from having a fan controller on it I cant see much difference.
