New to overclocking

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Until now I've only overclocked using the oc feature of my asus A8N-SLI Deluxe mother board. I set it to 10% oc and overclocked my AMD FX-60 from 2.6 to 2.8. Resently I build another rig using spare parts. I'm going to use this one to get some exprience overclocking. It is a Intel P4 2.0 ghz cpu, I believe it is a northwood processor. I have a soyo Dragon ultra mobo, donated from a friend, 512 mb of Kingston ram, and nvidia 7600 GS graphics card by Asus (8 X AGP). The cpu has the stock heatsink and fan and the graphics card has a Zalman VF 700 LED. I also have a cooler master extreme power 500W power supply and an In-Win F430 case. Just experimenting I was able to oc the cpu to 2.3 ghz and oc the gpu to 465 mhz. I ran 3D Mark 03 and scored a 6653. Any suggestion? I want to see how far I can oc this and be stable.

As long as temps remain below 60c, on load you will be fine. Edit Taidinh hes talking about his p4.

I tried raising the vcore to 1.6 then raise the fsb to 120, crashes right after booting. Then I kept dropping the fsb by one, still the same. I kept doing that until I got back to 115. So I'm stuck at 2.3 ghz. Also I think that on the cpu the multiplier is locked.

Is there a voltage control for the northbridge voltage. I know that I couldnt get much of an overclock with my old mobo without upping that.

Also if possible try to get a fair amount of air moving over the northbridge heatsink as intel chipset can get very hot.

Might be limited to mobo and cooling but those chips do like vcore and the RAM looosest timings you can go are those value or good?
