Pentuim D 830 stable at 3.91GHz. Hooray for the 8xx series.

Prime95 and OCCT for almost 8 hours, this overclock involved no overvoltage or heat, stable at 3.2Ghz.

I got my Prescott P4 650 3.4Ghz overclocked at 4.13Ghz (243mhzx17) and my FSB:RAM ratio is set to 1:1. My VCore is set to about 1.4V. My normal CPU temp is at 38-42°C and loaded at 50-53°C (Zalman 9500 CPU-cooler).

Does that seem like a decent overclock? I'm new.

BTW: The multiplier is 17 (thats the standard: 17 max, 14 min), but in CPU-Z it constanly changes between those two (17-14). Not like in other programs (I use Lavalys Everest) there the multiplier is constanly 17.

(I know I probably shouldn't be asking this here, but I havent got any answer yet)

That is a very decent overclock

Temperatures are fine and its good that you have your FSB:RAM in a 1:1 ratio, however if you think your RAM can run a bit faster then you can use a different divider to slightly increase the overall system bandwith between the components.
The change in the multipler is due to a Intel Technology called EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology) this can reduce the system multiplier from its default to x14 on a compatiable CPU/Motherboard, this allows the technology to reduce the voltage to the CPU, this reduces the temperature and power requirement.

Post a Validated CPU-Z screenshot in this thread and I will add you to the list.

This thread will be updated on Saturday

Don't mind my previous post. I made a huge mistake, when I ran Prime95 it was only at 50% op CPU-usage, so I ran Prime95 and OCCT together to get a 100% CPU-usage test. I ran them both for 8 and a half houres without an error, but I didnt take any screenshots. I set my VCore to 1.4125V and the FSB:RAM is 3:4, my P4 3.4Ghz (17x200) is now overclocked at 4.0Ghz (17x235).

The temperatures of the CPU are 40-43°C normal, and 55-57°C at max stress.

(Thanks for replying on my previous post, could you do the same here? Also, you asked for a screenshot from CPU-Z, how do I add one to the post?)

(If my questions are at a too high of level for this sticky, could u refer me to another post/sticky to post my questions.)

sorry if this isnt the right area to post this, but does anyone know any way to overclock my celeron 2.4 ghz, i dont want it to go far, just maybe 2.6 or so, im a noob to overclocking, ive only done my video card so far, but i hear that intel motherboards are F***ed for overclocking processors, is there anything i can do? everything ive been reading shows settings in the BIOS that i dont have! also shows jumpers on the mobo, that i dont have! are there any programs that i can use to bypass the preset settings?

I don't think so. You can't overclock with an Intel MoBo, sorry.

I speak having experienced myself with the 865PERLK and D875BPZLK, both did a 4% overclock but were not stable at ALL. I did try clockgen and that did not work either, everytime I used it, it froze the system and I had to reset the BIOS.

Do what I did, I gave up the Intel brand boards for the ASUS, relatively speaking the ASUS are as reliable as the Intel ones and better than. So you'll be in a win-win situation.

alright thanks, its just also the problem that id most likely have to buy a new case with buying a new mobo, dell cases are screwy, all the ports arent lined up in the same way in the back, unless im just looking at the wrong mobos on the net?

Well...ran prime95 FTT for 12 hours and validated my CPU-Z. Hope this qualifies!
