Overclocking a 3.2Ghz Prescott

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Right i have a P4, 3.2Ghz Prescott.

Asus P5GD1 FM/S mobo.

I think its stopped me from overclocking because most the settings in the Bios are greyed out.

So what can i do ? I want to get it to around 3.4ghz, not any higher because my heatsink is an Arctic Cooler 7 Pro which is very cheap but keeps the processor silent.

Thx

First of all, you need to disable C1E and Speedstep. Speedstep lowers the clock on the processor when idle and C1E lowers the Multi on the processor. So, you want to disable those two...

Second of all, most OEM companies (Dell, Gateway, etc) have a locked BIOS so that you cannot up the FSB (to overclock). So, you might want to check if you can or not first
