Overclocking my P4?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I wanna overclock my Pentium 4 because I'm tired of this slowass computer and I don't have the cash to buy a new computer. I filled in most of the stuff I know. I've already checked my BIOS but here comes my problem:

Upping the valeu's so that power increase goes from 3.00 to 3.01 already causes the computer to refuse to boot further then memory checks.

What to do?

What CPU do you have?


mpga478 is your socket, not the cpu model.

is that an ASRock P4i65G motherboard?

yes it is. It says UNtied overclocking on the package but so far I haven't noticed anything overclockable about it. What a scam.

try reinstalling your windows. that usually speeds it up. because as it looks to me you hav an old bugged up hard drive and you need 2 get some of that cleared up THEN O.C. your cpu.

Also all the O.C. is in the BIOS. you need to change the FSB around 2 overclock. But dont just raise the fsb change the Voltages 2!

I recently reinstalled Server 2003 and my harddrive is next to empty now. And my registry is clean as a whistle too.

Gotcha. download CPuZ and ATi tool and get orthos and super pi. Tell us all your specs w/ CPUZ and get a validation. send the link so we know the multiplier and other things and then we will help you from their. because it is impossible to see what you are doing if we dont no ALL the stuff.

Pentium 4's get hot

Are you on the stock cooler?
If so, check to see if it's dusty, and if it is, use canned air to clean it out

They still sell a few S478 aftermarket coolers and if you can get one, that'd be awesome
