"Overclocking" to its design speed? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
gonX, yes it is. Its on the same level as a Abit NF2 rev2 (which I had with a XP2600+ Mobile @ 2.85Ghz)

Sheep, I had the same problem on my old NF2 board. It was due to the BIOS not recognising the CPU. So I had to manually set the BIOS to allow the CPU to run at the correct speed. You might want to see if there is a updated BIOS for your motherboard.

When you boot up, does it display the model of CPU or does it say "Unreconised CPU"?

Thats what i was going to say Also could you try and find out how many watts your PSU is considering the wall is not a PSU.

I have to say, being as nice as possible, 'power supply: wall' is amusing all hell

It really depends, what will break your CPU is if it overheats and in this case the CPU core could crack open in this case wouldn't work at all. But, at least for my CPU, Pentium 4 which run really hot, they have something that if the sillicon part of the CPU reaches more than 27celcius, the CPU shuts itself to prevent damage. But keep in mind, it's not overclocking that damages a CPU, it's over"voltaging" and overheating. I would never recommend a CPU to reach higher than 60c, for any kind of CPU. But 60c shouldn't be a reference, you should be aiming at 40c or around.

EDIT= and depending on your CPU stepping, you might not even be able to achieve a good stable overclock.

I was already going to buy more RAM. What about this graphics card? And I probably won't get a new processor.

Ya the 7600 is pretty nice, but I would check newegg.com, as they have DirectX10 video cards in this price range,

make sure your motherboard has a PCI-e slot before you buy a PCI-e GPU

I'm almost certain the 5700 Ultra is an AGP card, so don't buy any PCI-E cards. How much are you willing to spend on graphics? Also, it would help a lot to post your power supply specs here (watts, 12v rails, brand, basically anything you find on the label). Sorry, I don't know anything about Socket A.
