Intel Pentium 4 515 Cannot Go Further

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi i overclock as long as i have pc's
it started with my 1st system Pentium 1 66 MHz
oc'd to 110 MHz
then my Pentium MMX 133 MHz to 233 MHz
Intel Celeron 633 MHz to 760 MHz
now i have bougt me a¨Pentium 4 515 2.93 GHz some time ago and i started overclocking it to 3.2 GHz with my Foxconn Mobo i coudnt go further
i didnt have agp so i bought me a Gigagyte Mobo
without knowing i could oc verry much beyond 3.2 GHz
i have it now stable at 4.07 GHz but i want to go further its not to hot
what happens when i try to oc it more
the pc starts u hear the beep it stops reboots and resets the whole bios
185 MHz is my FSB whats wrong with it is it the vcore thats stopping me ?
is it the ram it is Kingstonn ValueRam DDR400 PC3200 its at DDR424 i can overclock it further at lower fsb example
3.8 GHz 22*173 i can go as high as DDR494 or DDR492
but i know thats not safe hehe .
how can i go higher then 4.07 GHz ? memory timings are relaxed

Your Kingston memory is designed to operate at 400MHz. Due to the fact that it is value RAM it will not operate at much higher than its rated speed without changing the memory timings and/or increasing voltage to it.

I would use a divider to keep the memory as close to 400MHz as you can. This is the most obvious thing looking at your post.
Also another point would be to disable Speed Spectrum as it can hinder overclocking to a degree.
