!HELP! About to buy...!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 


About to buy that.

Why? Because I'm bored and I want to add some kick into my old Pentium D820. It's currently on a non overclockable mobo by ASUS..and well.. Its slow and is necking my X1900XT in some games. (If you want to see the specs for this rig its in my profile, under BACKUP RIG).

So here's my question: Is this Pentium D a good overclocker? I've never OC'd this type of cpu before. Do they overclock well? What can I expect (average OC)? All I know is that they run darn hot.

Thanks for the help!

Does it matter if its slow n bottlenecking your X1900XT if its just a backup?

Surely a backup is just to be used incase your main rig dies...No?

Yeah it bothers me lol. The backup rig isnt in the same house. My parents are divorced, and so, my GTX rig is at my dads, and the backup rig at my moms.

lemme give you a heads up, a pentium D at 3.6ghz performs like a Athlon 64x2 3800+, can you upgrade the cpu to a 800mhz core 2 duo?

That's not true. 800MHz core 2 duo isnt equivalent to a Pentium D at 3.6. Its more like, a C2D at 1600 - 1800. But who cares.. That's not what this thread is about.

If the D 820 is like the D 830 my D 830 overclocked to 4.3ghz no issues.

It idled at 38c and loaded at 51c

With this setup... It sucks with the stock cooler it idled at 68c and loaded at 80c

Pentium D's don't OC too well from what I've heard--HUGE thermal envelope. The TT aught to do as well as anything, and the DS3L is a great board.
