Help on OC my PentiumD 930. First try on OCing CPU..

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok I just got a 8800GTS and I am thinking on OCing my CPU cause it bottlenecks my GPU. I have only the Asus Ai Booster and PC Probe. I am not familiar at all on what I should do, which is the ebst progy, what temp should I stay under and etc. Could anyone help me please?

hi
I too have a pentium d 930, and I must say it is quite a nice overclocker. You must use your motherboard BIOS settings to overclock. Please see numerous guides on the site for more information about this.
I was able to get a stable overclock of 3.8Ghz, with the stock Intel cooling. I would recommend keeping the Pentium D's temperature under 65'c. I would also recommend buying a new cooler, so you can get even more out of it (it can supposedly surpass 4Ghz).

Thats about all i know.

Are you referring to NoAffinity's guide to overclock pentium?

Few overclocking tips for the P5WD2-E Premium. From 3.0ghz to 3.75ghz;

Configure System Frequency/Voltage:

1-AIoverclocking set to "manual"
2-CPU Frequency is where you can change the fsb of your CPU. Start @ 250.
3-DRAM Frequency is where the fsb of the RAM is. Set @ DDR2-830 for a 3:5 Ratio.

4-Performance Mode set to: Auto
5-PCI Express Frequency, set to: 103
6-PCI Clock Synch Mode, set to: 33.33MHZ

7-Memory Voltage: 2.1v or 2.2v
8-CPU Voltage Core: AUTO for 250fsb (If not set to 1.45v)
9-fsb leave at AUTO
10-MCH Chispet voltage, set to: AUTO (set to 1.55v if higher than 250fsb)
11-ICH leave at AUTO.

Advance CPU settings:


1-Microcide: Enabled
2-Max CPUID: Enabled
3-Execute Disabled Function: Enabled
4-Enahanced C1 Control: Enabled
5-CPU Internal Thermal Control: Enabled (if 300fsb+ set to: Disabled)

6-HTT: Enabled
7-EIST: Automatic (if 290fsb+ set to: Diasabled)

Advanced Shipset Settings:

1-Cinfigure Dram Timings By SPD: Disabled
2-Set to 4-4-4-12-6
3-DRAM ECC Mode: Disabled
4-Hyper Path 3: Enabled (if 250fsb+ set to: Disabled)
5-DRAM Throttling Threshold: AUTO
6-Boot Graphics Adapter Priority: PCI-Express/PCI

Some other things I do is to disabled the 2nd PCI-Express LAN, the SATA Link controller and ITE Controller. Sound I also do because I have an Audigy Card. Parallel and Serial ports are also disabled.

The settings I suggested are for 250fsb but you can and will reach a higher fsb , maybe 275fsb. But remember that at 275fsb, RAM at a 3:5 ratio will be at DDR2 966 speeds and maybe you'll have to lower the RAM to a 3:4 ratio.

Wow thanks for the detailed information on overclocking. This is more than good I can say. I am going to starts the tests and post as soon as I get results. I am really new to overclocking so I am not sure I am understanding all. I had an audigy too but I have it installed on my other computer whic h I use for downloading and cause i am watch a lot of anime I was good sound. I will disable as much as I do not use but does this help of having less load on the motherboard or something else?

I know already good temp for CPU is 60C and lower. For RAM how much is it?

Nasgul has some great tips there to jump start your 930 OC........I agree with everything except this.

First, never leave it at AUTO when overclocking, the board will raise the voltage along with the FSB at it's own decisions, usually much more than you need, or want.

Second, 1.45 is way to much voltage for that OC. I always recommend a person find their own CPUs voltage needs by slowly raising the FSB and only adjusting voltage up when needed, as every CPU is different. However, for reference, I have a 920 at 3.85Ghz now with 1.28v (1.33 set), that's a 275 FSB. I hit 3.96Ghz with that CPU (when the system was in a colder portion of my old house) and only needed 1.34v (1.4 set) to do it, that was a 283FSB.

You have one of the best (if not THE best) boards to overclock that CPU, just remember nothing good comes fast and easy, take your time, read the overclocking guide, get comfortable making small changes in your BIOS, and with experience will come confidence. Then you'll really break something LOL

You should keep a overclocked 9xx Pentium D under 55c for 24/7 operation, closer to 50c is best for long life. There are not many sensors for RAM temperature. I think a good rule of thumb is as long as you can touch it and not burn your fingers. I do have a set of Expert modules from Corsair which have a built in temp probe and LED display, and they run at about 34c at 1000Mhz speed and 2.2v.

Ok seems my RAM can't take the OCing TT Actually I dled memtest86+ 1.7 and it found these errors you see bellow.



I am not familiar with memory OCing but I find it weird it keeps hitting the same places.Also if you see, on the first pass it found 3 error and on the next 2 passes only 2. I ran it twice and it gave both times on the first pass those two errors. I am going to use memtest86 3.3 just for confirmation. Any help is welcomed.

Will try as soon as I finish checking the RAM problem ^^'' Thanjs a lot

I will not run it 24/7. Actually this one is only for playing games or using heavy progs. I have another PC that I use 24/7 for downloads. Also I used my fingers and it was so so. I could not keep my finger on for more than 5 seconds. It felt like an ok temp. As for the CPU temp.. I have not checked it on full load yet. I will tell as soon I I get it.

-Edit-

Sadly nothing. I changed every voltage from 1.95 to 2.10 and same errors. Also the 3rd one never appeared again. When I tried to go over 2.10 there were ummm al ot of errors so yeah >>
