Can I make it to 4.0GHz?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Just recently I bought a Big Typhoon, and added a second power supply to my rig and overclocked my prescott to 3.82Ghz, is there any way I can make it to 4.0? I can make it to 4.05 before windows loads, but it gives strange errors like there was a software malfunction, or it is missing .dll files, is it possible to work around this to have an overclock of more that 4.0GHz? Thanks for the help.

So did you use a divider? What are your temps?

Be careful with you RAM. Kingston is good RAM, but the valueRAM is not great for OCing.

Definitely possible--my rig has been at 4009 now since the WC conversion with no probs on Corsair Value RAM. You should be able to OC the processor without OCing the RAM by adjusting your BIOS settings to "underclock the RAM so the FSB can go higher. Good luck--It is definitely a useful improvement...

The RAM seems fine, I ran Prime95 and it has been stable for a few hours. my temps are 30C idle and 45C load. The only problem is that I have the ram at 133MHz and even if i loosen the timings, it still doesn't boot.

Probably a voltage issue. Up the voltage

The Intel OC guide says not to go past 1.525, which is what I'm at, is it alright if I go past as long as my temps stay low?

No. you can go past that, but it is not good for long term life. If you really want to go just a little bit. But, it looks like you have reached you limit.

RAM voltage and Vcore (CPU Voltage) can usually be adjusted independently in BIOS. Upping the Mem Voltage is usually a good fix at the upper end of OCing...

I tried tweaking the RAM voltage with no luck, I did gain a small amount by upping the cpu core voltage, but not past 4GHz, it isnt a huge deal, it would only be for bragging rights with my friends, even though my computer is already vastly superior.
