Overclocking my glorious, state-of-the-art Pentium 631, BUT I NEED HELP!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I know what setfsb does but I just don't know what the limits are or what I should be expecting. In other words, I kinda know what I'm doing but I don't know what I'm doing:D ANYWAYS, I can get my p4 to 3.3 ghz before my pc freezes. My ram is DDR2 from Crucial and it is rated to run at 667 (333 mhz). How come neither of these numbers match up with what setfsb says? this is my sig rig so the intel board model is down there, I'm using the ICS951417AFLF Clock Generator. It's not an exact board supported by setfsb but is very similar to the D101GGC board I think. Does anyone know how I could potentially get a better OC off of this? I know my pcie and pci should always stay at 100 and 33 mhz.


This does have the stock heatsink on it and yes, I know it gets hot but the thing is from 2007 and it hasn't died yet... He's a tough little soldier

TL;DR This is what i have so far, Is there anyway i can squeeze more out of this? It freezes when i bump it to 225/760. and i think it's because of my RAM speed.

You can't overclock in the bios?

nope, this is an emachine and I can't really do much in the BIOS, besides for the RAM upgrade and an older video card this thing is all original. setFSB is the only easy method. The motherboard is very low end too.

Well then you'll need a different motherboard, you aren't going to get anywhere without increasing some voltage.

Basically this.

ok, Than i guess 3.3 is as far as i can go... Thanks for answering me smile.gif

I just thought there was another way i could up the bus speed without making the ram run faster. I don't think voltage would be a problem already

The older the processor the harder they are to overclock.
