Thermaltake Subzero4G on a Northwood P4 2.4Ghz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
Im new to overclocking and I suppose I want to clear one thing up... Even If I get the Subzero4g , a good chipset cooler, good GPU and VRAM cooling system, and good RAM cooling system, Am I going to be able to push it far enough to get a significant performance boost???

I know all these insane Phaze shift coolers are the best but im looking to do this with minimal cost and not push it so far that its only gonna last a few months.

My system is:-
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-8ipe1000-g Rev 4.0 chipset Intel 865/848 (springdale)

Cpu- P4N (Northwood) Pentium 4C 130nm 1.6-3.4Ghz 1.475 - 1.575V Socket 478
Rated Speed/FSB - 2400Mhz / 4x133Mhz

Video card - HIS Excabalur Radeon 9550 (passive cooling) (308/230 with no cooling)


Ram- 512M DDR-SDRAM (16x(32Mx8) PC2700U 2.5-3-3-7

HDD- ST360015A 2mb Cache ... capacity 56Gb

So is it worth overclocking, Upgrading a few things then overclocking or just get a whole new computer ???

Subzero4g? How old is that? You would get better preformance with new hardware.

hate to burst your bubble but a subzero4g wont cool a p4 too well, i'd use one as a chipset cooler or maybe on an older graphics card. save yourself some cash and go core2, an E6300 (or E4300 if you can get one), Asus P5B, some cheap DDR2 and a PCI-E graphics card would be a much better way to spend your money, as your hardware is just too old to warrant spending much money on it.
