Hey guys, I have a prescott 630 (3 GHZ) and I want to know how far can I take my baby with stock cooling. Have it on default settings: 200x15 and tell me please if the core cell software is ok to increase the multiplier or just disable it and do it from the bios.<br />
<br />
Thanks

With a 945P chispet? I don't think you'll get too far, specially with an MSI which are not well known for great overclocking with Intel CPUs.<br><br>
Chamo, I think Core Cell is somewhat like AIBooster, so start overclocking in increments of 5mhz fsb but I remember that most if not all Prescotts with 2MB L2 cache can do 230fsb easy, so start there and see how it goes from there.

How about ratio? did you check to see if they were on a 1:1?<br>
Timings? What are the timings that your RAM is supposed to run at? Generally a 4-4-4-12 timings is the optimal with a 2.2v. which brings me to the fallowing question, What is the RAM voltage you've used?<br><br>
Is your power supply reliable enough to get the overclocking going higher than 215fsb? So many factors to look at when overclocking, it's very easy once you get to know it.

well, you R right about the power supply, it says 500w but is a cheap one included with my cheap atx case so I should wait and buy a true 500 w one. Im also planning to buy that 965p ds3 gigabyte mobo in newegg with a decent cooling like zalman or thermaltake and start my oc with more reliable parts. For the moment Im stable with 3.24. My ram has 1.8v and I havent touch it neather increase that number so I guess Im safe with that, however if you think is risky I'll take it back to 3.0 Ghz Thanks for your patience Nasgul and all you guys
