Small overclock

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi,

i am trying to overclock my cpu a little, but even if i select the lowest (5%) overclock value in the bios, windows fails to boot.. anyone know why?? i thought my setup would be ok for a little overclock.

i have a p4. 2.8gz gallatin, 2gig of DDR 400, Asus P4P800-X mobo, gt6600 agp graphics card.

cheers,
Gareth

Hello and welcome to OC.net

To help us decipher your problem it would be easier if you fill out your system specs within the user cp.

Also as a start a screenshot of CPU-Z would also be good.

What temps/voltages/timings it your cpu/memory at?

More info would help

Looking at your screenshots you have a very similar setup to mine.

Things worth checking:

Have you locked the PCI/AGP bus frequencies?

What voltage adjustments can you perform on the motherboard? Memory and CPU?

I noticed that you are currently running your memory on a 5:4 divider which means its running at DDR320 instead of DDR400. (865PE chipset limitation wont allow 333MHz) This is good from an overclocking perspective as you can overclock your cpu without worrying that your memory wont handle it.

Try upping the VCore voltage by one notch and see if will boot up.

see how that works and let us know how you get on.

You could try lossening memory timings or increase VDIMM voltage a notch.

The VCore voltage limit on Gallatin (northwood) cores is around 1.70v so you could go a bit higher, just watch your temps tho

EDIT: If you could give another CPU-Z screen shot of your current max overclock i could suggest a more suitable suggestion
