Question on P4 3.0 GHz 630 Prescott

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
ok, here is my question, is it possible for this cpu to be overclocked to 4.0ghz? i'm planning to do this but i'm still waiting for my mobo. i have a zalman CNPS7000B-AlCu LED as my cooling. i need to know what else i need in order to achieve this. the mobo i'm gonna be doing this on is Asus P5P800 with the Intel 865PE chipset.

a big typhoon, maybe on your cooler (seeing as i dont know how it performs)
maybe some water cooling for your cpu, but im going to come right off and say you need a new mobo, then the one your getting too! Are you getting it because you need to keep agp? because if not i really would return it save up and buy any of the p5wd2's and those would overlock your dreams lol
and possibly some faster ram seeing as you dont want to run the slowest dividers in the world
but first try lapping your heatsink with as5 and then see if you get a temp drop, and then you can push some more

EDIT: Its very possible to get this processor to 4ghz i would already have it there if my mobo could adjust voltages lol

There's a good chance it will hit 4Ghz, but you will need better cooling on your proc.
A Big Typhoon, Tuniq or a Zalman 9500 would get you in the zone.
I couldn't break 3.6Ghz until I got a better HSF

With the HSF you have, I would bet you would hit at least 3.4Ghz, maybe 3.6Ghz.

i think youll hit close to what im hitting (3.65-3.7) and thats a pretty good overclock seeing as the mobos are relatively limited
the heatsink/fan arnt always the biggest factors in an overclocking mission..
theres many other things you have to take into consideration before you just go out and get another heatsink, like voltages, dividers, fsb, basically..the board capabilities

i've already hit 3.5Ghz with a crappy mobo Foxconn with no vcore changes, no pci/agp lock, and limited memory timings selection. this is the new mobo i'm getting

thats the smartest question anyone asked mate. u sure can hit the 4.0GHz on that proc. i hit mine using almost the same setup. Asus P5P800, 630J Pentium, 2x512GB Corsair XMS dual Channel Pc4400. that ram is the only difference and perhaps the only bottleneck but i dont think so. u can with your ram perhaps easily hit 3.8. whats ur ram make btw?

i know that mobo by heart anyways...dont use the software to overclock...
your much more stable doing it in the bios (just keep that in mind)
its one of my favorite agp boards i hope you get a good oc out of it, but i do think youll maybe get 3.7...maybee 3.8 but prove me wrong

ok, 3.8ghz will really make me happy. as for the make of my RAM i think its a dual channel PC3200 DDR SDRAM not sure of the brand name, but if its my ram that'll hold me back, i'm sure i can buy a better one.

to cyrix: what kinda cooling are u using for your oced cpu?
to suthernkid: thanks man, when i get that mobo, fingers cross that i'll get a good overclock. hopefully past 3.6ghz hehehe

before u go spending money on the RAM, try and run it when u get ur new mobo and see whats ur limit. if u really cant get to 3.8 or 4.0 then give a holler and we shall advice u further. until then try to work with what u have, u never know, u might just outdo all of us.

i am using Bigwater water cooling (the old version plus 8 high cfm fans) but thats because the ambient temps in Malaysia is about 33°C while the wet bulb temp is about 29°C. but i think ur zalman should be upto the task.
