Thread Starter 
specs:

p4 2.2ghz Northwood oced to 3.06ghz with 512 pc2700 ddrmemory, ratio is 1:1 set at 3-3-3-5, cooled with thermaltake typhoon & no errros with prime95 torture test 9 hours.

also tried oc to 3.15ghz did the torture test for about 1-2min detected error/hardware failure message from prime95.. does that mean i'm at my limit? if i get a pc3200 ddr would i be able to go more?

what's the max known oc for a p4 northy 2.4ghz?

sorry don't have screenshot, at work comp right now.

You can test if your RAM is the limiting factor by going back to 3.15 GHz and running Memtest86. If you get loads of errors, the RAM is the issue. 3-3-3-5 is fairly tight timing, so you can always relax that further (check your BIOS to see what timings options are available). You can also up the voltage to the RAM.

What kind of load temps are you seeing at 3.06 GHz? For Northys, try to keep the load temp at or below 55°C.

All that aside, that's a very nice overclock.

i think my board has a faulty sensor. it's reading at about 39-42c idle. & load with prime at 42c & maybe 43c..
