Overclocking a 3.0

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im rather new to CPU overclocking, I've done it extensively on my Vid card, but not with my CPU.

My setup is:
P4 3.0 HT 800mhz fsb
2 Gig OCZ DDR 3200
Gigabyte P4 Titan Series Mobo

Full water cooling.

Any info you guys can give me on ocing this cpu?

(I read the sticky by the way)

Thanks.

The usual method is just to increase the CPU Clock frequency (by increasing the bus speed) to a point where the system is unable to operate. At this point an increase in CPU Voltage (Vcore) is required.

Maintain this until you reach your required overclock, or are prevented by thermal conditions/other components.

The stickies written are detailed enough, and if you follow all procedures stated within them there should not be a problem overclocking your processor. Make sure you take all safety procedures into consideration (i.e. AGP/PCI-E/PCI locks etc).

Just be warned about your memory. You will either have to increase Vdimm (Memory Voltage) to maintain stability at higher clock frequencies, or set a divider to prevent the memory from causing stability issues.

Your chip is an average overclocker

Good deal, thanks for the help. Thankfully, I doubt I will have any heat constraint with watercooling.
