Overclocking a Pentium D 820? =\ - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
So if I'm not careful, due to the fact that my processor is unsubstantial it will not let my graphics card reach full potential with overclocking methods? So it would be better to upgrade my processor at a future time for better overclocking results. I would like to find a motherboard that supported x64 OS'. Would anyone know if the Pentium D 820 supports x64 OS'?

Ok, so this is a motherboard that I found for decently cheap with an nvidia chipset. Because the memory standard is DDR2 800, does that mean I'm restricted to memory 800 mhz and lower? What does that mean? I'm not sure. Also, would running an x64 OS increase my FPS during gameplay? Would anyone know if Pentium D supports x64 bit OS'? It would be appreciated.

yay its my motherboard! Your memory isn't restricted mines running at 900mhz. this is what i run on a daily bases on my board. Had to turn down some of the clocks because of the summer heat.

also 64 bit xp has a reputation for really bad drivers. I use vista home basic 64 bit and its been great so far.

So I think this is what I'm aiming for,
ASUS P5N-E SLI
OCZ OCZ500SXS StealthXStream 500-Watt Power Supplyor recommended PSU
edit* G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)(Not Supported, Any recommendations for Ram for this beast?)
OCZ SLI-Ready Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
EVGA GeForce 8800 GS Superclocked

I will start overclocking after I receive the PSU. I will possibly upgrade my processor depending on how well my computer overclocks and runs. Any recommendations thus far? Also if this is the motherboard I decide to get could someone direct me to a guide on overclocking this type of system so I can study up on it before the arrival of my rig. Thank you.

Google isn't much help, it's just telling me to upgrade my system...

I'm using a run-of-the-mill Dimensions 5150 with a 2.8 D 820 processor, would it be considered safe to clock it to 3.0 without the need for voltage or temperature checking?

(as I cannot check the temps because there are no sensors)

And what would be the best program to do this with?
XP...
