Got ram ddr-3200 samsung, Got the FHS thermaltake extreme volcano12,ssprncvegeta said:get the system, tweak it for yourself, and if you come to a problem you can't get past, post here or IM me on aim at: uberl33tjarad
the pentium4 prescott 2.8ghz can usually pull 3.8ghz with some good air cooling like thermalright sp-94.MadSkillzMan said:Hey, ive seen some guys REALLY push their CPUs, like a full 1ghz, how is that possible and does it shorten the life of it?
too much voltage is bad. it usually helps you get higher speeds but always creates more heat, and you have to watch how high the voltage itself is. too much will kill the processor. heat is bad too. northwoods safe max is 50c, prescott max are 70c.rsjrv99 said:So if my system doesn't start up adn i do the reset, then do i up the voltage? Where can i find the VCore voltage in the Bios? Is it called CPU core voltage? If i up it to the first spot without O/C will my processor fry? Current'y i can not get to 2.2 Ghz on my 2A without my computer not turning on. I really need to know this stuff before i go screw wtih it.
Now im at 207x11.5 vcore is max at 1.75v ram is 207MHz 2.7v max alsonealric said:Volts go up now
Set cpu at 1.85.
set ram at 2.8
Get that front side bus where it should be.
Great job so far
