OCing Pentium D 820 w/ BigTyphoon

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering how high I would be able to OC a Pentium D 820 (2.8GHz) with the BigTyphoon. From what I understand, you can OC it up to around 4GHz, but I thought that sounded a little too high to be real. Also, what would I have to change the voltage up to if I was to get 4GHz or however high I'd be able to get it up to.

Please take a few minutes to fill in your system specs by going to the User CP linked near the top left corner of every page. Then, scroll down and look for Edit System Specs on the left side of the page. That will post your components in each of your posts automatically which will help us to better help you.

I agree with your assessment that 4.0 GHz sounds a bit high for a P-D 820 on air even with a nice cooler like the Big Typhoon. Those CPUs generate a lot of heat, and that would be a very impressive OC even on extreme cooling.

Filled 'em out. Maybe this is a better question... Would installing the Big Typhoon and not OCing increase the life of my proccesor? And would it improve preformence on full load (because the lack of heat)?

The BT is known to hit nr water cooling temps! A lot of reviews say that the BT is the same as a low - mid range water cooling kit!

A processor will probably last for years and years anyways so I wouldn't worry too much about that cuz you'll probably want to upgrade before it dies anyways. As for the OCing a good safe way to overclock is to go as high as you can on stock voltage. if you don't raise the Vcore your not going to generate much extra heat so you should be ok. having the Big typhoon will help alot though cuz your temps will be less and the lower your chips temp the less voltage it takes to run. I'd say you'd hit about 3.2 or so with stock voltage and that cooler. good luck and use Prime 95 to test for stability and something like everest or speedfan to watch your temps.

Thanks for your help. I'm actually waiting for my CPU to be delivered. I'm in mid-process of building my first rig.

got my 820 running at 3.73.ghz fsb 266 to get better performance out of ram.was at 3.8 but hitting 6500 memory banwidth on sisoft tests with it turned down a bit.(ocz gold 667 4.4.4.8 @ 533 3.3.3.7 with voltage at 1.95).cpu currently at 1.4v. temps are good but I am using water.idle about 30-35 load 45-50

It seems that I need some help with my OC. I got the FSB up to 222, and now I'm stuck. My temps are idle 45 and full load 50. I tried messing with the voltage and stuff to get it to go higher but nothing seems to be working.

Have you locked your PCI/PCIe frequencies at 33.3 and 100 MHz respectively? The PCI frequency in particular is very important.
