Intel Boards and overclocking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well Ive been Meaning to do this for a longtime. Software overclocks like setfsb or softsb or clockgen just dont cut it in terms of stability do they...? But if you are on a linux like OS you should be able to get direct file descriptor access to your PLL right...? how about hacking into them the right way and get Software overclocks some stability.? It really shouldnt be that hard. Has someone here already done or tried this.? I tried on my DG33FB and managed to stabilize it quite well on 3.24 Ghz by overclocking and loosening RAM to 800/5-5-5-18 and raising PLL FSB to 360. on Q6600 Revision GO . The only problems arise when sometimes im running a game on a virtual windows machine and the Loose timings start failing. Any help or ideas..?

@moderators... sorry i posted this in the new members forum earlier.... should i delete it from there....?

Te best route will be, to find a cheap mobo that is NOT intel, so that you can overclock your CPU through the BIOS if you want to do a true stable overclock... There are options for your mini-ATX board (with a G33 Intel northbridge), like a Gigabyte GA-G33M-DS2H/L/R or Asus....

I've seen a guy hitting 3.5Ghz on a Pentium 4 3.0HT using setFSB. And believe it or not, his motherboard is based on a i915 which was locked in terms of overclocking, i have a different version of the same, bad that it's clock generator is not supported. IMO, some of them are ready for overclocking.

i already have another rig at the office where the mobo is not intel. but id like to see whether One can get stable OCs through the OS as well. im not averse to soldering or modding the intel board either... i have a 790i diamond at the office...

SetFSB is pretty okay. Im using SLG505@#$$% setting and its working pretty well,,, but stability wise i have issues.... very small but they are stll there
Even on my DG33FB im relatively stable , albeit slightly hot at 3.24 Ghz. im at around 55 degrees idle and 65-70 on loaded for 3 hrs....If i try to go higher... the unchangeable automatic vcore setting starts to play a role and raise temp further and then I start throttling.... ay hints...?
