Checked CPU-z, it says 11x too.
I'm not running 4400+ , im running 4200+ as i wrote
I filled in a bunch of the specs, but im cant seem to find the rest
And where should i find the Voltages?
Ohh... Saw the guide, says ill have to look at CPU-Z--- The core voltage is 1.296
Sorry, I meant 4200+. I have owned and overclocked them both back in the day.
You will need to up your voltage to get any sort of better speed most likely. How much voltage is largely dependent on how well your cooling soultion is, as more voltage leads to higher temps. For now even with a stock cooler you can bump your voltage up to 1.35 or 1.375 and you should maintain good temps. But always remember to monitor them when you first boot back into windows.
I personally would put the voltage at 1.375, go to 11.5 multi and 210MHz FSB and see where it gets you. ( ~2.4GHz) If you can stress the CPU with Prime95 (or the stress test of your choice) for a few hours, then continue the FSB up 5MHz at a time untill you become unstable. Next, find out if the instability is resulting from temps or lack of voltage and adjust accordingly.
Again, remember not to make any big changes too quick and watch your temperatures. I always use multiple monitoring programs when experimenting because you never know when that one program will have some stupid glitch and give bad readings. I like to use HWMonitor, Speedfan, and Coretemp.
Overclocking is always a nice way to give your entire system a power boost for free or cheap, but in your case I would definitely say a graphics card update would benefit you far more than even a maximum overclock on that chip, especially for gaming. Any games in particular you would like to play better?Edited by PhillyOverclocker - 1/1/11 at 12:59pm
