Overclocking, desperately need help

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My setup is as follows:

Prescott 2.6ghz Intel P4 (it says northwood in CPU-Z, I don't know which it is)
Abit AI7 Motherboard
1GB Corsair value memory
512mb memory that came from my old dell computer, but is the same ddr2 memory
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
Thermaltake Spark7+ Heatsink


I have tried overclocking it once, but I don't think I knew what I was doing, all I did was up the speed in the bios, not changing the volts or the timings on the memory.

If I could get some help on OC'ing it so that it is stable that would be awesome.

what i did with my system was i raised the mem latencys up to 5-5-5-15...then overvolted the mem to 2.2...then overvolted the cpu to 1.4(its a core 2 duo)...slowly raised the bus to the desired level and then started droping the voltages on the cpu slowly (1 notch at a time) after that i moved my mem latnencys to 4-4-4-12...noticed i couldnt go farther...and then lowered my mem voltages...you want a 1:1 mem:cpu bus speed ratio

go to your other thread..I responded there.

Basically your RAM is ef'ing your 'ish up. Get rid of the mixed crap, keep the RAM with the lowest timings as this will allow for more OC room.

PS- that cpu can do 3.2ghz easy.
