P4 3.0 Northwood on ASUS

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was searching through my bios on my ASUS P4C800E-Deluxe and I found a setting called overclocking. It's a setting in the ASUS bios that allow you to overclock up to %30. I got my P4 3.0 ghz Northwood to 3.6 ghz and I didn't try to go any higher. My system was running at 48C at idle with stock cooling. I was going to get either the XP-90 or the XP-120. On both of these heatsinks it says 3.2 ghz P4 or above. Could I use it on my P4 3.0 ghz Northwood? And what kind of fan should I use with this heatsink?

Don't use the AI Overclock thing, you aren't gunna get very far with it. Just manually set the voltages and speeds in the BIOS, you should be able to get a higher and more reliable overclock. Don't bother with an XP-120/90, unless your current one is holding you back.

Watch your temps! 48C Idle is pretty hot for a northwood, at full load it will probably push 55-57 degrees(I may be wrong). You tried running prime 95 and reading your temps?

As long as it's stable, don't worry about the temps I say.

I can't figure out how to manually overclock my CPU with my ASUS bios. But I was wrong about my idle temps. It's around 42C idle. But I do want to get the XP-90 along with A5. I just want to be safe.

The ASUS AI OC thing underclocks your RAM for stabability. What speed is your RAM currently runing at?

I have two sticks on Corsair XMS DDR400 running at 2-2-2-5 and 2 Corsair Value DDR400 running at 2.5-3-3-8. So my comps running at the slower speed. I'm ordering 2 more Corsair XMS DDR400 tomorrow.
