I am a FIRM Beleaver in OC'ing

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Here is the situation. I used to overclock for the shear thrill of getting the electronics above what they were intended to be. So I decided to see how that reflects to gaming. I recently started to get into BF2 and I always have been into Flight simulators. So With that said I decided to see how overclocking my system would do in terms of performance...i.e. frames per sec. Well I set everything in flight sim X to minimal to get a base line. Frames were at about 40-60 per sec. not bad. So I went back and set everything to ultra high. I was getting 6.7-10 per sec. So I then went to overclocking my machine. I was able to get the cpu (Not sig rig)(Its a p4 2.8Ghz with HT) to 3.6Ghz and ram was at ddr667 or somewhere around there. And the g-card (7600gt) was oced to 850Ghz. Took my frames to 27-40 per sec. That is a >50% gain. That is great!....So needless to say I am a firm believer in overclocking...not that I wasn't before but now I have seen for myself that it really does get you more for you money.... Being as I am a cheap bastard....

Yay you did it. Yah ocing is a fun thing. I do it so I can see all the weird errors. blue screens and high temps, lol. I think you can push that p4 a lil further though.

Yah that is a smart move, from what I hear these price drops are going to be pretty sweet.

Uhmmm..... blue screens and weird errors..... nice hobby

Ahem back to the poster. Like the blue screen guy said maybe you could try pushing it a bit more. Whats your temps? Hope you do not have a P4 Prescott.

It is a pressy Temps are good...about 53c under gamming conditions. I know that the Press will not get much more then that. I am pushing as had as I am willing to get...1.55v core. Don;t really care if I smoke it...or the MB would just give reason to get a new one...

Wow 1.55 and your temps are only mid 50's load thats pretty impressive. I am not to familiar with Intel what is stock voltage for the P4?
