Intel P4 506 & ABIT AG8 Motherboard Overclocking Help!!!

post #1 of 3
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!!!!!

Hi Dallmyt1,

What is the current temperature for your CPU idle & max-load?

I've never used ABIT mobo before, so I'm not sure about OC'ing one.

What's your current dimm timings? Where exactly does the BSOD kick in? @170FSB is the system actually prime95-stable? Any dividers? Need a lot more info before I even can try probing on what needs to be tinkered with
