Thanks guys

Over the past... Week or so? I've been asking advice on what parts I would need to upgrade, in order to achive a decent overclock, and yesterday, my new motherboard arrived, so I thought, considering many of you helped me, I'lld show you the results.

I could proberly get higher, I think its my RAM thats limiting me... I know I can make it post up to 3.72GHz, but I get "Page_fault_in_none_page_area"...

Hey holy .

The best way to tell if it really is your ram holding you back is to put a divider (temporarily of course) on your ram then try and oc. It's a real good way to see how high your cpu can really go, pretty much taking your ram out of the picture as far as instability (unless your ram is bad, run memtest86 to find out if you ever suspect it). Go into your bios. Go to Advanced --> Jumperfree Config --> Dram Frequency. Set that to 320 or 266 (400 is what you want to run 1:1 with your prescott = ideal). Setting this to 266 will make your ram run alot slower, so you can pump your fsb up to your cpu's limit and never reach an unstable level with your ram. It's an easy way to tell if it's your ram or cpu limiting you . If you can still only get to 3.72GHz or whatever, then it's not your ram stopping you, it's probly your cpu and/or cooling or somethin.

Doing what you said, I can post up to 3.92GHz, but I can't get into windows (Even at 3.92GHz it idles at 41c, 39c at my 3.51GHz...), as soon as it hits the windows loading screen it reboots, any specific reason this would be happening? Just voltage not high enough? I tried at 1.5v and it still happened, so I guess I found my limit? Or is there something I'm missing...

(But I can make it work the same on 400MHz ram, by pumping the voltage on the RAM up anouther notch, so I think its the CPU then)

You can push a Prescott to around 1.525 volts on air as long as your load temp stays at or below 65°C. I assume you locked your AGP/PCI frequencies as you wouldn't likely come close to the OC you have without having done that. Going that high, you may need to bump your chipset voltage a hair.

Memtest86 (mentioned above) is a great program. It will do a thorough test of your RAM independent of the OS and will give you a snapshot of your RAM's stability at the current settings. If you get more than a random error or two, either you have bad RAM (not very typical) or your settings (timings and/or vdimm) need adjusted (most common).

Oh ya, good catch taeric, forgot about telling him to lock his agp/pci, that could deffinitely cause some problems, lock them to 66.66/33.33 that's the standard frequencies. Without locking them, when you raise your OC, they'll also go up some, and once they reach a certain level, it will fail. But taeric is right, I'd think you wouldn't be able to reach such a high OC as you have without having them locked already. I could be wrong, but I thought I read the p4p800 series locked them anyway if you have it set to auto. Maybe I'm thinking about something else though, I lock them anyway.

But also dude, you already have a really good OC going on. If you can get 1GHz over stock speeds, you're already hauling ass. But your on water too right?-- so you may be able to get more out of it who knows. Like taeric says, go ahead and bump your vcore up to 1.525. It should be fine and may help you squeeze a bit more out of it. BE cautious, but I know some people on water or other extreme cooling go a bit higher than 1.525, but don't do that unless your temps are really good.

Another thing to consider is vcore droop, the Asus boards are notorious for that. It doesn't seem to matter for alot of people unless they reach some pretty beefy OC's like you seem to want. I have a p4p800e deluxe, p4p800se, and a p4p800 in my house and they all had alot of droop when put under load. I did the vcore mod on all 3 and it worked really well. The p4p800 and the se still droop a little bit but are way better than they were. And on my deluxe it worked awesome, I mean it barely droops at all, like 1.5 or 1.51 idle to 1.49 at full load, almost nothing. Not recommended unless you know how to solder, or at least have real steady hands and are willing to study up alot before you do it. Plus you need a solder iron with a real small tip, these are tiny, tiny solder points. I've done quite a bit of soldering so it was pretty easy, but I could see a novice destroying their mobo real easily. Good luck! Hope to see you post back "woohoo 4GHz stable!"
