Ok ive got my toes wet now for the plunge

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have what I think is a good set up for OC.

EVGA 133-P4-NF51-AX NF4SLI 775 for a mother board, a Intel Pentium 4 processor 630 (I hope with a 800Mhz fsb will make things easier) , 2 gigs of Mushkin 991381 DDR2 EM5300 5-5-5-15 Memory.

Im using Air cooling with a Zalman CNPS 9500 LED for my proccessor 3 80 mm case fans and an additonal 3d edge fan for my video. total of 6 fans going at full blast. Stock temps running at 30c idle and 45c full load.

I have the folowing guide.

The OC for dummies : ie.
http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...ing-guide.html
My Bios manual (printed out lots of notes and highlighting)


Now before I jump in!

Here are a few Questions:

1) Should I start with the ram timing's or stepping the processor?
2) How dependant is the CPU shift voltage when upping the FSB?
3) Is it wise to increase the PCIE FREQ at the same time?
4) Will increased VDIMM voltage allow for increased DRAM Timing?


Ok thats it for now I know i will come up with more questions as i go along.

Please feel free to give advice (Please note i built this box for my wife. If i burn it up i wont get any for a very long time!)

from what ive seen and learned i think you wanna start with a 1:1 ration on ram and pretty tight timings.. only drop them if ya need to for stability to gain the extra ghz..

I guess you never got the memo?

nForce 4 SLI-IE + Overclocking = don't go hand-in-hand.

I seriously doubt that you'll ever see that chip ever runing at 3.75ghz when with an Intel Core Logic that would be the common and in some instances it could be the limit due to the motherboard layout, not the chipset.

A P5AD2-E Premium will very likely allow you to take a P4 630 to 4.02GHz. A decent cooler will help to keep the temperatures down.

Corsair Value Select VS1GB533D2 will allow you to move to 711MHz easily and will make 1:1 @ 266fsb (266fsb x 4 = 1066fsb = 4.02GHz) @ 3-3-3-8 (2.1V) on DDR2 which is an excellent clock.

This is what I would do with that processor.

There's different ways of going about it, but I like to concentrate on the cpu first. Put a major divider on your ram so it is out of the equation and running slower. Then I see just how far the cpu can go. Afterwards then I see if the ram can keep up with that and at what timings, then you can decide on better ram to run 1:1 if you need it. If you keep 1:1 with ram as you try and overclock, you may not be able to tell if it's the ram or cpu crapping out once you hit instability, thus making it take longer and more testing to get your oc going. This way you know what each can get up to on it's own, and more quickly too.

Like nasgul said, I haven't heard real good things about nforce and overclocking, not as good as an intel chipset. I'm sure you can oc, just maybe not that far. Give it a go and good luck!

Well i messed with it and got it up to 3375 MHZ running at 900Mhz on the FSB I went to 905 and i started to blue screen. Seems the video was going funky as well. I set the ram to 4-4-4-20 which is stable in its self. I reset to defaults and am trying agan.
