Prescott 3.4, how much oc????

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've not tried to oc yet. What can I expect with my setup I now have. Clock speed? What about frame rates in BF2? My video card is air cooled but I'll soon be buying a water cooled block- http://www.highspeedpc.com/Merchant2...=CoolMaticNV45 - also a better pump, internal twin-fan radiator too. http://www.highspeedpc.com/Merchant2...y_Code=AirRads I'll will probably have to make it external radiator. How my combo look? Do I need to change anything?

I agree with the guys posting before, you should be able to hit 4.2GHz with good cooling and the right settings. However I'm sceptical about your current PSU. I think that you'll only manage 3.75/3.8 with that as I used to own a Thermaltake PurePower 480W myself before moving to my current Tagan and I could never get higher than 3.75 until I changed my PSU.

Thanks much for the info! ........was already looking at new psu, I'm taking mine out to use in my other pc. I'm putting a X800Pro in it.

Is your dram 2 X 1GB or 4 X 512MB? As well, you are using a socket 478 mainboard and I have yet to see one of those socket 478 mainboards make 4.0GHz (Stable on dual prime95). I have seen many 4.0GHz instable runs and on extreme cooling I have seen 4.0GHz+ stable.

The power requirments of the Prescott are not well handled with the 478 platform and was a major reason for the movement to LGA (Land Grid Array) Socket 775.

I am not saying you can not reach these numbers. I do say however, that it will not be a cake-walk to make it with that platform.
