Yea... kinda cool now(10-15C room temp.) and I'm not using a case atm, so sometimes I boot and it stays around 26-30C idle. But I'm pretty sure 3.7-3.8 is my limit..

Mine even hits 4.2ghz but crashes after 3-4 simple process in windows. Also overclocking is a b***h tbh i was benching at 4125mhz easy with my 6600GT and crapy 550W psu,then i got a 6800GT and now i cant bench over 3.93GHz i thought it was the psu,cant handle cpu and vga together so i bought a FSP true 550W dual rail for 96$ and nothing changed lol it still crashes during benchs over 3.93.

630 is a good overclocker and with the right hardware & cooling i'm sure it can work stable at 4ghz,some water cooling would be needed tho.

Alright, I am back in this my memory is not my problem, this mobo lets you set the RAM and CPU to whatever you want independantly and my RAM was at 600 the whole time with 4-4-4-12 timings and 2.00vDimm, any ideas on how to hit 4GHz? Also, should I be messing with PCIe frequencies? I remember reading that some boards OCed higher if you raised the PCIe freq a bit, like 105-110 or so, should I try this?

And Kindredice, I have a 530 not a 630, not to mention that mine is one of the earilest ones ever made, I got it right when they came out pretty much.

I think your problem is that your motherboard is using the NF4 chipset, of which the Intel version is crap. The best chipset for overclocking Intel CPUs is the 975 or the 955 chipset.

Well since this board supports 1066FSB CPUs, that means it is guaranteed to OC to 266FSB, and I am only at 250 right now, unless you mean that the same CPU on a different board would OC higher, not having to do with the FSB. Also, I read in reviews and noticed myself that this board consistently undervolts my CPU which I have to watch out for. Oh well, BF2 Special Forces 1.12 just finished patching so Im off to try it out with some increased PCIe frequencies, wish me luck!

For ATi the frequency should be set to 105 anyways. You turned off spread spectrum and locked and pci frequency right? You shouldnt need 1.65vcore to do 4ghz and that is a LOT of vcore to keep running 24/7. My 530 aquamarked at 4006mhz with 1.55vcore so you shouldnt be having as much trouble. What is the stepping on your CPU? Mine is a D0 which is supposed to suck, but mine wasnt that bad. If you have the E0 then you shouldnt be having many problems at all. You said you bought the CPU early, so a C0 might be possible which would explain the lack of overclock stability.

I was not using 1.65 and infact all of this was with 1.500v, anways I did not get any further and raising the PCIe frequency even up to 110 did not change anything so I just stopped being lazy and tested everything between 1000FSB (known max) and 1040 (known failure) and came up with 1030 max bootable OC and dropped that to 1020 just to be safe so for now my max OC is 3.825GHz, 1020FSB and ~DDR600, closer to DDR592 or something lol.

Mines a 520 D0 and it got to over 500MHz on stock voltage. But I cant get past 228FSB cause of this stupid ATI chipset that does great with AMD but sucks with Intel...so Im stuck at 3.2GHz when my old mobo got me to 3.3
Very nice!

Alright, 3.900GHz, 260FSB (1040 quad pumped) on 1.550vCore although only read as 1.500 in SpeedFan (1.500 was read as 1.46) so I am not so sure about that but I am at 3.9, gonna go for the gold! 4005MHz should come at 267FSB or 1068 quad pumped.

OMG I did it! I was able to get as far as the Windows log in screen, have my computer reboot and get back into BIOS and see in my system information screen 4.00GHz (4.005 to be exact) I am so happy, however to get there I had to set the vCore to 1.600 (1.55 as reported by SpeedFan in Windows) had to raise my PCIe to 110 and mess around with a ton of other stuff and it's not worth it to me, plus I now idle at 35c instead of 26c at 1.400v so I am going back down to 3.75.
