Need help with memory bandwith

Hi all,

I am trying to overclock my P4 2.4 (18x133), everything went smooth upto FSB 143, but faced a strange problem at 144. The memory bandwith scores and memory benchmarks suddenly drop about 10% according to sisoft Sandra. Temps are around 47 degrees celcius. System is solid at 143 and 144. Mainboard is Asus P4B533. I am using Kingston PC2700 modules. Are there any workarounds ?

Thanks

  1. Yeah. Up the voltage of the memory to about 2.8v. If that doesnt work, up the chipset voltage a bit.

  2. Would that raise MB temperature ? I am using 2 fans front and rear both blowing out, but cannot drop below 45, even 50 when i'm playing games, is it too hot ?

    I suggest u make the front fan the intake and the rear fan as the exhaust. There is no point in blowing everything out.

  4. Hace you set the memory timigs at auto by any chance?

    I love my Delta 60HP 7000 RPM fan that puts out more dB then CFM :eek:
