Overclocking a P4 1.6Ghz

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i bought a P4 at 1.6Ghz...and i have oc'd it to 2.11Ghz, as high as my mobo's FSB will allow.... but it seems kinda unstable, especially when i up the voltage... i stepped it up to like 1.725v....and it seemed even worse... how high can i go with the voltage? ALSO: is there anyway to unlock the multiplier on this thing?

I had a 1.8 Northwood that i got stable at 2.3 and thats as high as i could go seeing as i had a mobo that wasnt very good for ocing. Voltage wise i would recommend you dont go any higher
Download cpuz and post a screenshot

EDIT: multiplyer is locked

I'm surprised you even got it that far. The willamettes don't usually oc that well. I had a 1.5 that I couldn't get much more than 1.7 on. Most other people have the same experience. I wouldn't go any higher than your current vcore if I was you, and to be honest it probably wouldn't help anyway. You should maybe just back it off to 2GHz and then see how much lower you can set your vcore to, then live with that cause it's all you'll probably get. And no, there's no unlocking your multiplier. If you can get 2ghz stable on that willamette, you've already got a good oc for that chip.
