So I'm at 4 GHz, now what?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
just a little follow up from my post in the memory section.

right now, i'm stable with prime95 running for 19 hours while doing some heavy download with bitlord.

can i get higher with what i have. i was hoping to go at least to 4.2ghz. not a big difference, but you know, every bits counts


thanx

I am not a master overclocker but i would say that you might be able too get a little more of an overclock if you get rid of those (4) 512mb sticks of ram. and get 2 1gb sticks. also maybe get your psu up too 550w. that might give you a little more of a oc. I know you said "with what i have" but i really dont see much more than that.

4 sticks Vs 2 sticks of ram doesnt make to much difference on the current intel platfrom as the memory is on a northbridge link, i think as jmc7983 said a new PSU will help, look at runing a divider on ur mem so ur only overclocking your CPU and your memory doesnt interfere with your results.

well since you dont know what a divider is, i dont think your running one, which is good because you can get a lot more out of your processor with a divider! Go into your bios and change your ram frequency one speed setting down and try to move your cpu frequency up
