OC'ed a D820

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My sister had spywared and virused up her pc which is a Asus P5LD2 and a Pentium D 820 @ 2.8ghz.

So after I fixed all the problems and got it running right, I decided to see what the chip could do.

At stock voltage the thing almost hit 3.6 ghz. Since they are Prescott cores, they got hot real fast. In fact, even when undervolted the CPU hit over 70 celcius when stress testing at stock speeds.

I threw a 30 dollar cooler master heat pipe sink on it and it's much better off. I stress tested it for a while, and left her clocked at 3.5ghz and undervolted.

I was impressed that it just wanted to keep going. I could probably get 4.0 ghz out of it with some water cooling.

I couldn't overclock the memory at all since the board is limited to DDR2-666. But at least I squeezed some new life out it!

Yeah, the PD's are great overclockers
