Intel Pentium 4 clock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have my Prescott Intel P4 processor clocked at 3.3GHZ, stock is 3.0GHZ..But if I try to clock it at 3.6 it gives me a black screen error on startup saying something about C:\\windows\\system32\
toskrnl.exe corrupt or something but if I go back to 3.3GHZ it just starts up normally? and I am on windows vista if that helps.

you set divider on your RAM so you are not overclocking your RAM too much, and am not sure i get what you are asking for.

you asking why it does that and a way around, well try setting a divider on the ram and also try increasing the Vcore of your CPU just a little.

if your hard drive is corrupting then you need to lock down your PCI frequency to 100 if you cant do this, then i wouldnt overclock any more than 3.3Ghz because you are at risk of corrupting them drives further and maybe even wrecking them.

thats not true, most of the time the boards are not have PCI freq locked down, i know from personal experience with my old AMD and My P4. some of the older boards do not have a feature in the bios to keep the PCI freq locked down, its only really in the newish boards we see this.
