overclocking Intel Pentium 4 521 Prescott

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
How far could this cpu be overclocked on a Biostar G31M7TE Intel G31? im on air cooling fans i have are a 120mm blowing down the case on the psu, cpu fan and heat sink but they are stock. and the fan on my 8600GT. I want to oc it but im worried about heat. i think it has a 14x multiplier? If i can't get much out of it becuase of my air cooling i will have q8200 soon anyways. just somthing to do in the mean time..

You can use speedfan or everest ultimate edition. Either should work, and load temp, using prime95 or orthos.

Is the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro good for non extreme overclocking. Like ocing the Q8200 to about 3.0hgz or 3.2 and my Pentium 4 521 Prescott to about that or higher? i have 120mm fan on cpu and vid card fan also.

i had a tough time getting my old 521 over 3.6ghz, that was on water
it just didnt like it
i even nakified it, and still maxed at unstable 3.6ghz

so, on stock cooling, dont hope for more than 3.4ghz
