p4 3.0 hit a wall at 3.5?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
my fsb is set at 234...my dram frequency is 400mhz...agp/pci is 66/33, and my timings are 3.0-4-4-8-8. My voltages are as follows...vcore is 1.5..ddr reference is 2.75..agp vddq is 1.7. My bios reports that my temps are 122F idle and 133 load. My problem is when I push the fsb above 234 it becomes unstable and generally crashes. I have gotten my fsb to 241 by setting all my voltages and fsb and everything to it's default setting and then I just upped my fsb until it became unstable then up'd my vcore a little. But when I started using a bunch of programs it crashed. When I first built this computer, 4 power supply's in a row died. It's an OKIA 420watt max switching power supply.

How do I set dividers, I'd like to atleast have a 2:1 divider but I don't know where to make that change.

i put it down to 266, restarted and then up'd my fsb to 235 and when my computer rebooted...my desktop had the windows classic style to it for some reason, could that be from the overclock? Also, when my computer was testing the memory during post it seemed to take unusually long. cpu-z says my divider is now 3:2

no other options. Just DRAM Frequency which is running at 266mhz. agp/pci is at 66/33...DDR Reference Voltage is 2.75V...and my AGP VDDQ is 1.7..yeah...the vcore definitely took it's part in raising my temps.

You would want something like a 1.6 vcore for a 3.5ghz+ CPU.
