VT is useless IMO.

VT, A.K.A. ViiV

And I do have a Pentium D 945 OC'd to 4.51ghz as my 2nd rig, http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=110762
That version of CPU-Z red the CPU as 950 but it's a 945.
Save the money and go for the 945.

JP, Core 2 Duos are not compatible with P5WD2-Premium unfortunately.
Awesome I'm going to order the 945 then .

What sort of cooling setup do you have to reach 4.5 ghz? I have pretty damn good aircooling with a Tower 112 heat sink and big fan for this cpu. Think it will be safe @ 4.0ghz? I'm willing to go a bit farther if thats a safe range

I have a Tuniq Tower 120 with some AS5.

For overclocking, all Preslers can do 250fsb right off the bat with the stock voltage, so it should easy do up to 4.20ghz in no time or big effort.

I can't remember what are the settings in the BIOS for my P5WD2-Premium.

Well if you could post your bios settings that would be sweet .

I know my ram and mobo are of top notch, only reason I never tried to push my 800 series is cause of all the heat issues I heard about. I bought this pc with the parts in mind to OC and decided against it in the end. Figured why even play with this 800 for such minimal gains.

Looking forward to learning more .

I'm not saying they cannot be OC'd. I read back when I bought my 800 (a year ago) that some people were making gains of ~.4ghz and that was it. But temps were high, I wanna say I was hearing about 69*c, but dont quote me on that. I just remember the temps were really high and without upgraded heat sinks dont even think about pushing the cpu at all. Has this changed since then? I havent looked into OC'ing my 820 at all since then.

I put a 945 in my P5WD2-Premium and it works great. I'm kind of stuck at 4.4 Ghz though because of cooling. At this speed and 1.4 vcore my load temp on a dual prime large fft stress test is 65C. I think I need lapping or better air ciculation. Good luck with your overclock.

Everything is pretty much at stock, except for the RAM which I manually change the timings to 4-4-4-8 (or 12? can't really remember) and lock the PCI-E to 101 and PCI to 33.33mhz. Voltage for RAM is 2.20v and Vc is 1.46v.

That's why you see my 4.51ghz idling at 3.15ghz, I like the power saving features turned on so that the power hungry Presler goes easy on my electric bill.

I'm really getting excited now . My pc has been acting up so re-formating is in the future anyway, been about a year so I'm gonna clean it out hehe. I know the proc is the biggest bottle neck atm. If I can hit 4.2-4.4 I'll be extactic!

I'm still such a noob with this stuff though.. I can never grasp the concept of timing the ram. :/

EDIT: Question... How much does a power supply play a roll in this? I have a 550w Vantec, think that would be enough or more info about it needed? I can dig out the box and stuff if need be.
