New to OC. (Intel p4, Asus P4800D-X)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Intel Pentium 4, running at a native 3.0, and I have recently desired more performance from my games. So I decided to look into over clocking it, a couple of Google searches brought me to this site and a few others.
The first step I took was to read a few tutorials, and decided to over clock my GFX card first, which is a NVIDIA Geforce 7200. I downloaded Riva tuner, and move the slider up a bit. The computer was stable, but it seemed I got lest FPS in the counter strike stress test. With Riva I got 47 FPS, without 62.
I decided to worry about that later.

I then went to the ASUS website, and downloaded the newest no beta bios for my mobo. I flashed it, and began looking at some more tutorials.

In my BIOS I only had one option as far as changing the CPU speed, and that was Bus Speed, I could change it from anywhere from 1-300. However, any change in the number caused my computer to restart in the Bios, and the Message "Over Clocking Failed".

So I'm at a loss here, any body able to help me? Is there an alternative way to overclock this? Am I doing it wrong?

I'm also curious about the NVTray utility, does it function the same as ATI Tray tools? Is it better than Riva?

Also, if I could get any information on overclocking a Dell Latitude D620 laptop, that would be awesome.

ok as for the video overclock causing less FPS its probably cause its not quite stable. try lowering it a bit. but on the lappy its never a good idea to overclock them cause they will overheat and probably die lol

Hi there and welcome to OCN.

The easiest way for us to help is if you can fill out your system specs, which will be in the User CP section.

Although your CPU isn't quite up to scratch for the latest games, it should more than suffice for CS etc.

You'd want to upgrade your graphics card. The 7200 is frankly rubbish for gaming and overclocking it will yield very little, if any improvements.

As for the laptop, don't even think about it. Laptops are specifically engineered for heat/performance balance. If you start messing with that, things will start to melt
