When I push the power button, the system tries to come alive (the fans kick in and everything) but then shuts down after ~2 seconds.
Long story short - it's bricked.
R.I.P. 2.6GHz (up to 3.25GHz on stock volts) Pentium 4 HT Northwood.
Well, at least I confirmed, that the s478 IHS isn't soldered and can be removed without any damage to the core. Gotta be more careful next time

That sucks, man. My friend dropped a Phenom II and it lost several pins off the bottom.
I myself destroyed a 478 Celeron a while back also by dropping it.

That sucks :/

But at least you tried and learned something useful and shared it with us, that's what counts here on OCN. Besides, you have the 3.4 Ghz running just fine, so the 2.6 Ghz sacrifice was in the name of science

So I'm GLaD it got burned
Think of all the things I learned

Hey Folks,

I would like to improve the performance of my Desktop by safely overclocking - since, like most of us now, funds are in short supply.

I have trawled Google but, sadly, am left somewhat overwhelmed. Any advice from you experts that can be followed by a computer illiterate would be most welcome.

The PC:

Processor entium 4 531 3GHz (Prescott Socket 775 LGA)
RAM :2.5GHz DDR2 RAM 333.3 mhz (Trancend)
Vidio Card :NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT
Mother Bd :Lake Port Intel i945P/PL/G/GZ Rev A2
Bios hoenix Technologies 6.00 PG 07/28/2005
Hard Drive :Western Digital 500GB SATA/600 7200RPM 16MB

Thank you.

Is that an OEM board/PC? If so, you'll be really limited. My Pentium 4 641 got to 4.5GHz easy, and I think the 531 is similar except it's 3.0GHz vs 3.2GHz, and it's 90nm instead of 65nm, so it runs warmer, but it's otherwise identical. Going on that, I'd say maybe ~4GHz with a decent cooler/board should be achievable for 24/7 use, which is a healthy 1GHz and 25% clock speed increase, but it depends on too many factors to really say. I think that 945 chipset is going to hold it back just a bit, but I don't know. If it's an OEM board/PC though, you aren't in a good spot either way.

Thank you Madam,

It is a 90nm but, and please forgive my ignorance, how do I find out if it is an 'OEM Board'?

In short, quick and easy answer is if it's a brand name PC (Dell, Acer, CP/Compaq, etc., etc.), then it most likely is.

OEM stands for "original equipment manufacturer", and in this case, is used to refer to the branded motherboard. They often have BIOS that don't expose/allow overclocking through them, so with an OEM PC, your options for overclocking are far, far more limited.

You can either use software (which doesn't always work), or BSEL mods, which involves physically removing your CPU from the motherboard and bridging some of the the contacts, such as like this...



Doing that would give you a speed of 3990MHz. If that's an OEM (brand name) PC though, I doubt the cooling solution will handle it well, and I doubt it'd reach that high on stock voltage. Your FSB is 800MHz right now, for reference, and the next step up is 1066MHz, so there is no in between. If it can't do 3990MHz, it's pretty much that or nothing. You can only fool the motherboard into using other "standard" FSB values, but you can't fine control them.

Thanks again - now I understand.

Firstly, it is not an OEM PC. It was put together by a local IT guy. All I have on the Mother Board is:

Board: LakePort
Serial Number: ULID54700376
Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG 07/28/2005

There is no way I am capable of making hardware changes so, if there is nothing I can do with the software on processor or board, I presume I am just left with playing with the Video Card?

regards
