    Question Overclocking P4 2.26

    I'm using an Asus P4T533-C and I'm wondering do I have to do anything to the multiplier in the bios to overclock correctly. I have upped the CPU/PCI frequency from 133/33 to 144/48, I think. I'll have to look again to be exact, but you get the jist of it. Is that all there is to it? When I check in windows and benchmark it, it reports that I'm running at 2.45.

    I have never tried overclocking before.

    Thanks.

    See how much you can raise the FSB and still have stability. Turning up the CPU Vcore may give you more MHz, but I really wouldnīt do it.

    You have to set an appropiate RDRAM/FSB frequency ratio.

    Keep an eye on those temps. Donīt let em go to the high 50s.

    Check stability using Prime 95:

    48 MHz may be a little tough on your PCI cards? See if there is a better combination.

    As long as 1.7v is your max vcore used I would not worry about increasing the vcore!

    Many people are getting 2.8~3.0GHz with the 2.26!

    Ok, I double checked my bios settings. They are:

    CPU/PCI 144/36
    CPU Multiple 17x
    Vcore 1.5

    CPU temp right now is 32C
    Motherboard is 35C

    I put a blow hole in the side of the case and ran a piece of tubing from that fan right onto the cpu fan, to explain why my cpu temp is lower than my MB temp. I also ordered a Thermal Take Volcano 7+ today for the cpu. $30, can't go wrong with trying it out.

    Ol' Man, 3.0 ghz off a 2.26? That's impressive. I'm shocked the person who did that didn't melt the cpu. Do you know if they used water cooling or just fans?
