Hey everyone,
This is my first time overclocking...
P4 2.4ghz B
Soyo P4X400 Ultra

I took the cpu from 133*18=2.39ghz
to 135*19=2.56ghz

But when I right click on my computer properties it states the speed at 2.43ghz... can someone explain why to me..

Thank You

that is correct for can't change the multiplier on p4s as far as i know (at least not easily) so it has stayed at 18.just keep going with the's quite safe coz the agp and pci busses will be locked.

no matter how hard you try, you can't polish a turd. :]

LOL. U CANNOT change the multiplier on P4. U have the menu in Bios but it's no good (if u don't have a test cpu). So actually your cpu speed is 135*18=2.43Ghz.

Romania is a beautiful country, unfortunately it's inhabited.

No-one can unlock the P4 at the moment... but some hardware review sites have 'unlocked production samples'... atleast that is what they say.

My dual-PSU PC is so powerfull that the neighbourhood dimms when I turn it on :eek:

you should be able to get your fsb to 160. this will net you 160x18=2880. my p4 2.4a can reach this, albeit with only a fsb of 120(x 24 = 2.880). you may even get a bit higher.......keep upping it a couple notches at a time, until it locks up, then back it down a couple.!!! good luck man !!!

p.s.---like your name, as it reminds me of a character on MIAMI VICE (tv show from years ago)
