Hi all...New here as well as to overclocking. I guess I'll start with what I just built and see what if you all have any suggestions.
Xaser III Aluminum LanFire Case
Intel Pentium 4 2.8 Prescott 800MHz FSB 1MB Cache
SimpleTech Nitro Matched Pair 256MB Dual Channel DDR 433 (512 Total)
Chaintech GeForce 5700 Ultra 128MB
37GB Raptor 10,000 RPM SATA Hard Drive
120 GB 7200 RPM PATA Hard Drive
16X DVD ROM
I have tried to use the softmenu to overclock the chip to 3GHZ and step up the ram but if I do anything the SATA Hard Drive (Boot Drive) disappears and I get Fail to load OS message. If I go back and change everything back it resets and boots fine. I haven't stepped up the voltages though and I have a feeling that is maybe the problem.
Any help would be appreciated. I have the original Intel HS/Fan so I don't want to go to high just yet
Any input on a HS/FAN combo under...say 60.00 would be appreciated also.
