Pentium D - Overclocking

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am overclocking my Pentium D 3.4 GHz processor, as of now things have been running smoothly, my 3Dbenchmark06 score was gradually increasing until now so I need help of some more experienced overclockers.

It is currently at 3.75 GHz and my benchmark score dropped to 4900 where it was getting around 5500+ before. The CPU frequency in my BIOS is at 220, Should I adjust other settings for my CPU to obtain a smoother preformance at 3.75 GHz, my idle temps have been at 27-30C through the whole process of overclocking so I dont think its a heat problem.

so your multiplier is 17.

Try increasing the FSB slowly. I dont knwo why your rating would go down, but something MUST have changed in your windows configuration. Check if there are no weird thigns running in the back groupnd. try checking if the ram timings, RAM clock and Vidoe card settings stayed the same.

I dont know how to check those settings, I did go into msconfig and stopped a few programs from coming up though.

There is definitely something going on here, my score has dropped and even though I set my CPU back to its original 3.4 GHz I still have a low score...how should I fix this, would a system restore do anything?

maybe your ram is on a 1:1 divider and droping it lower then its specs. My pentd 945 3.4ghz clocks up to 4.8ghz and i run it at 4500 for everyday stuff. I score 6600 with my modded 7900gs.

Would the score decreasing when I'm increasing my CPU GHz mean that its not improving the preformance and its more decreasing it then anything?

I was getting over 5000 without it being overclocked and then it started going up as I first began to overclock it but now its going down.

um, maybe windowz is up to it's old tricks again. THere has to be a setting that was changed in the bios. Try increasing the voltage a little bit, make sure the Cool and Quiet feature for Intel is disabled. Its the feature that increases and decreases the clock speed depending on work load.

I was adjusting a few things but still I'm getting below 5000 when I test it. I increased the voltage slightly a few times, I increased the DDR thing, I decreased the CPU frequency to see if it was just the processors limit or something but now its like it permanently dropped my score or something.

As I said before voltages where fine, and my temps barely increased as I was bringing it up. I'm confident that I could reach 4 GHz with only going a little bit over an idle temp of 40C, maybe 43-45C. But for some reason my score on the benchmark is suffering.
