trying to move forward now. although my theory about how NB Link and HT Link are calculated was correct, doesn't seem to be why I cant boot.
FSB raised from 268 to 270 still causes POST issues

I don't believe so. I think you need at least the SB710 south bridge for the bios option but I could be wrong. Maybe with a newer bios update it can but from what I've read so far, it doesn't.

Hi all. Newbie here who bought the Fry's 1 day deal of a X4 630 and MSI KA780G for $99 on Sunday. It's been years since I built and o/c a desktop (as in Pentium II days) and had some quick questions I hope you experts could answer.

What is the ideal temp range to stay at (and what not to go over) on these chips? I did a test o/c on this to 3 Ghz (Bus Speed to 215 stock 1.33 V) and my core temps are around 27-29 C. I assume going to 3.2 Ghz is still rather moderate but since I am on stock case cooling (120 mm fan in the back is all) I wanted to see if I should get some additonal cooling first before going up, or if it can wait until after.

Thank you for your insight.

To be honest, your temps are fine. These chips can do 3.2Ghz maybe further easily using the stock cooler for 24/7 usage. However, if you plan on going further, I would definitely suggest an aftermarket cooler. What case do you have? Also, fill in your system specs here

far from being an expert, more a noob.. but you should be fine with anything below 50C. ~70C is the danger zone with these chips. The temps you listed were after stress testing or during idle?

Thank you for the feedback Kamui and avin. I will add my system specs at that link.

Not sure what model case, it's an Antec that was my brother's spare rig, just removed the old cpu/mb and upgrading from there, as I try and remember everything from 10 years ago in college

I'll O/C to 3.2 and check that also at stock voltage, don't have a reason to go any further yet until after getting a new vid card anyways.

Thanks again


UPDATE: Ok at 3.2 Ghz (229 Bus speed at stock voltage). Temp at idle was 32 C, 30 minute load test it stayed at 53 C then back to 32 C about 2 min after the test. So if I stay here yea or nay on additional cooling? If I go further I probably need to get something I assume.
