On a P5N-D there is no way you would get that cpu to 4.7 GHz, it is not a high end overclocking board. The cpu you have there is a C0 stepping too, which does not overclock as well as the E0's.

I would not go any farther, you are at the temperature limit there.

ohh that blows.. how about 4.0MHz?

In the bios I put the cpu vcore to 1.3625v which is the max voltage from the intel manual.. I also set the multiplier to 12 to get 4.0MHz and I got the bsod.. so now its set to 11 with 3.66MHz and no more bsod.. did two tests already and its good..

You might have set the cpu vcore to 1.3625 in the bios but this board has alot of vdroop and vdrop as you can see in your screen shot it is running at 1.280 under load. You can set the voltage higher than 1.3625 in the bios and be safe. Like I said before, I would not overclock that chip any farther because you are at the temperature limits (for stable 24/7 use). I recommend better cooling before going farther.

Also, its 4.0 GHz....not MHz...
GHz - Billion operations a second
MHz - Million operations a second.

You should set FSB to 400MHz, and Multiplier to 10x and that will give you a solid 4.0GHz, set your voltage to 1.4v, and work from there. But since you have the P5N-D, there is absolutely 0 chance that you will get it to 4.0GHz, I had the same motherboard and chip and it was a nightmare. It was difficult to even get to 3.5GHz.

Edit, here was my results with the QX9650 with P5N-D: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1324190

yes instead of running the system with FSB 333 and multiplier with 11 at 3.66Ghz.. I would like to do a FSB 400 with 10 multiplier and just leave it at 4.0Ghz..

from which section in the BIOS do I set the FSB to 400?

Its not very easy unless you have decent experience fsb overclocking on a P5N-D. Its not as simple as just setting the fsb to 1600, you will have to play with the NB and VTT voltages alot. You also do not have very good ram (low stock speeds and probably not very good overclockers) which you would have to run on a lower memory multiplier that would kill memory bandwidth for a bandwidth hungry cpu.

I battled the crap ram game too, I had 667 ram that struggled to get past 750. The jump from that ram to my GSkill kit was amazing.

ok so to get this system at 4.0GHz I should just buy 8GB of the same ram and put it on the 4 slots.. then continue with the OC.. which ram do you guys recommend for the P5N-D? ill buy it from newegg..
