can I overclock this p4?  

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My specs.

Pentium4 2.4 Ghz
Asus P4M800-M mother board
1.5G DDRAM 400
ATI RAD 9550 256mb
ATX-350w power supply (ATX12V, ATX 2.03)

Iam not really familiar with this heres what i saw in in my setups that seemed i could change but dint do anything because i dont wana mess up my cpu..

1: Dram clock 2: Dram timing 3:AGP Aperture size 4:CPU clock and voltage.

1My Dram Clock where rated by SP, There was 4options below, 100, 133, 166 and 200. Any advice on changing that?

2My Dram timing where rated by SP, 2 other options, Turbo and Ultra. Any advice on changing that?

3AGP Aperture size was set to 64M, 4 other options, 128M, 256M, 512M and 1G. Any advice on changing that?

4CPU clock and voltage: Said my CPU clock was at 133 and the max was 165
Should i boost it up?

You're packing a P4 Northwood? Oh yeah definatly overclock that sucker, what you do is drop your ram down to DDR333 speeds and then start bumping up your FSB by 5mhz incriments until it gets unstable, then boost your CPU voltage a notch and continue until the system wont stay stable any longer

One rule: You can overclock almost any CPU. OC it to like 2.8GHz, that's like 140-150MHz

yeah go for it. but from what i have learned the first time you go to increase your fsb do it by 20 then by 10 then start increasing it by 5.

I don't understand why people go 5MHz at a time. I just shoot for my current goal, and if it doesn't POST I increase the voltage bit by bit, till it does.
If it's not stable under stress, then I go up a notch, till it is. Then I look at the temps, and if it's too hot I drop the FSB and voltage.

Why waste all that time increasing FSB little by little? It's not like it's going to explode. The only thing worth going little by little is the voltage, imo.
...unless there's something I don't know about that could cause your CPU to go kaput if you do this.
