Need help with P4 630 Overclock

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi,i have been using an AthlonXP 2500+@3200+ for a while,now i bought a new computer and wanted to overclock as my previous one.I used to hear intel porcessors as quite good overclockers and wanted to give it a try. Here is a list on my new comp's specs,

Intel P4 630 3.0GHz IMT64 2mb l2
MSI i945P Neo
2x512mb Kingston DDR2 533
Leadtek Winfast 6600GT
Feel Hurricane 550W PSU
2x120GB Samsung SATA hdd
ASUS 16xDVD-RW


I was hoping to beat 3.6Ghz with my stock hsf,but i was shocked when i stuck at 217fsb(217x15=3255mhz).Even my gimp 2500+ was overclocking 1833@2400mhz easily,i was checkin bios over and over again to see if i did something wrong,when i push over 217fsb like 220 230 240 etc my pc doesn't boot,it does only if i clear/reset cmos.I don't have heat issues,30-32C idle 40-42C prime95 @217fsb,i havent tried voltages over 1.45 but do i need to? some friends say its a power issue,my psu is not a known brand but it has values like +3.3V 32A +5V 40A +12V 24A and i dont have uber hardware to make it suffer i guess?

Intel mobos' bios is a lil different,there are more options for o/c i guess,is there something in bios that i have to change in order to overclock beside voltages/fsb? and should speedstep stay enabled?

I hope you can help me,i want to buy some new stuff for xmas i'll decide if i can solve this o/c issue.

Did you lock your PCI-E bus? If so, try leaving it on auto and see if it resolves your issue. If it does, set it to 105 and keep going, however your PCI-E bus may limit how much you can overclock.

1. As Chim3ra said, check your PCI-E bus lock.

2. You're not out of memory bandwidth, so that's not a problem. You should be able to go to at least 266MHz, for a theoretical max OC of 3990MHz at stock FSB.

3. Your PSU looks OK.

4. Keep Speedstep enabled. It saves power and lowers heat by cutting multiplier in times of low CPU usage. Don't worry - it monitors it like 30 times a second so there's no delay in scaling up to full speed.

5. Good luck - that 630 should OC well.

Hi again and thanks for replies,

I can't see an option to lock my PCIe speed,it says 100 and lets me change the value between 100-120.I havent noticed any change on it when i overclock but i just tried to rise it to 104,and my fsb to 220 and it worked!?! so i thought its better to keep the PCIe ratio at 100,but i wasnt able to run at 220 before? its a little weird.So should i rise my PCIe speed before my fsb? Will it cause any bug in games etc if i rise it too much?

That is your PCI-E lock. It's a little bit of a misnomer since it doesn't actually say lock on it. If you input a number there it will "lock" the bus to that speed. There are some that will say that the max for nVidia is 105MHz and ATI is 110MHz, I personally have my PCI-E bus at 113MHz with my ATI card and it runs just fine. I came game for hours without a hitch.

Ok i see some light finally, now i'm running on 105pcie/225fsb @ cpu default voltage thats a start i tried 106/230 108/230 110/240 with voltages upto 1.43 but no luck,should i stick with 105pcie? and i couldnt find fsb/ram ratio on bios,CPUz says my rams are workin at 301mhz 602ddr seems a lil much for my 533s,i have the latest bios,anyone familiar to 945p bios? Do you think mems stopping me to go higher?

You are more than likely running a divider without knowing it. If there is an option in your BIOS that has something to the effect of "By CPU" or something like that, that is your divider.

What are all the settings in you BIOS at right now?

Cpu multiplier is locked,i'm running at 226x15 with 105pcie,default cpu voltage,default mem voltage etc.There is nothnig about fsb/dram ratio on cpu settings or cell menu.On Mem Settings there are timing options and mem speed but when i enter mem speed,i dont see any ratio options i only see 533 and 667 mhz options. CpuZ says i'm running on 302mhz with FSBRAM 3/4 ratio.I cant lock memsat 533 aswell,either i chose 533 or "by speed" option,my mems work on 3/4 fsb/dram.I'll check mobo's manual maybe they hide it somewhere i just wanna see 3.6ghz

Well the reason it's running on a divider is because you're CPU is designed to run at 800MHz and it looks like the native speed for your MOBO is 1066. There should be an option where it says "By Speed" to run your RAM at DDR400.
