I need help overclocking P4 640 on Asus mobo

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have an Intel 640 running on an ASUS P5N32-SLi-Delux. My multiplier is stuck at 16 and the overclocking software won't let me change that. Back on my Abit board (Duramax), using the came CPU, I could change the muti. Is there a program that will let me change this? I have a water cooler and I'm sure I can get it to 4ghz (I had it to 3.99ghz on the Abit board)! Help me plz!

I've gone through the bios, but it's stupid. It gives you just the already quad pumped FSB to tweak, and that's it. I can change the voltage, but even when I get to like FSB 820, it gets testy with me. How can an ABit board unlock the multipliers on the same processor and the Asus not?

Yeah, I bought this board hoping it would OC like nuts and it has turned out to be CRAP! I'm very dissapointed. I spent $210, when my $150 board over clock better! Any ideas? Anyone that knows this board well?

You cannot change the multi sorry. You will need to overclock by raising the FSB it is the best way. Unfortunately you might be overclocking your memory too far.
What you need to do if this is the case is to run a memory devider. But before i right the book on overclocking. I will just link you to the original

As a happy update, it has come to my attention there is a problem with my motherboard. According to my happy "user guide", there is an option in the bios that is called "CPU Lock Free". This fuction allows me to drop my multi to x14. Which is exactly what my Abit board did. HOWEVER, I've updated the bios and I don't have this option. So I e-mailed ASUS with my problem and that was back on Thursday. If I don't hear anything by Tuesday, I will call them, demand a fixed patch for the bios or them to send me a new board. THEY WILL PAY...
