Need Advice on Overclock Attempt

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, after have some issues with Vista not liking it when I oc'd even a little, I have gotten it to work with me, at least a bit.
Back when I had XP I would usually take the FSB from 200 to 230 and that would be about a perfect stability level.
Now, when I attempt this, Vista Explorer crashes repeatedly until I restart and drop the OC down to 225 FSB (3.61, OC of 410 MHz).
I know the chip I have should be very capable of doing 4Ghz, but my board wont have any of that, it has the PCIE and PCI locks, but no vCore adjustment, the exact opposite problem I had with the MB before this one.
*VIA Chipset, shoots self in foot*
Regardless, I basically lost 100Mhz on my old stable OC. Which isn't much, but it brings me to my main question and new obsession for the evening:
Shouldn't my proc be able to go a bit higher than even 3.7 w/out vCore adjustments, or is 500Mhz about the max you are going to see without raising it?

My RAM is set to AUTO and my timings are 4x4x4x10 with a 3:4 divider.

Thanks,
GibbyGano

No, then it can't go above that without highereing the voltages, Vcore. You really sure it does not have it? Weird, but possible.

Yeah, one of the big complaints on the other forums about the 775Dual-VSTA from ASRock was the lack for vCore even though it has "Untied Overclocking!" stamped all over the box.

Suppose I lost the 100Mhz just for the most likely fact that VISTA is more sensitive(picky) to OC's.

Yeah, It gave me some decent frame jumps in CS:S, but I'm just a little cranky about losing the 100Mhz, though I doubt it even makes a 2 FPS difference. I just hope VISTA stays stable at 2.61Ghz.
