Pentium 4 3.2 775 Overclock

Hello guys, i have searched for results on this to noavail. This cpu was pulled off a dell mb, it is the 800 fsb 775 lga processor. What is a typical overclock for this unit. I am looking for 3.8 - 4.0, is this possible. I am debating on this processor or getting the 805d and board if this cpu will not make it. If so will the ASUS P5P800-VM board do or do i need something else, and what type of memory. Any help is appreciated, also what memory should i get. Thanx in advance guys

    It would help if we knew whether it's a P4 540, or a P4 640. The

    540..maybe 3.8-3.9 with decent air. The 640...4.0 shouldn't be a problem,

    maybe a touch more. The P5P800VM should work fine with either of those

    processors. You will want some nice PC4000 RAM (Corsair or OCZ)

    minimum. Have fun. GL :)
  2. There is a goodly amount of varience in the amount of OC you can expect. I would place the range at 3.6 to 4.1GHz. Cooling & luck will play major roles in determining how high your chip will OC. By luck, I mean to state no two chips will OC to the same levels in the same manner. :)
  3. the P5GD2 premium out-OC'ed the P5AD, in the early 2005 vintage systems. the P5AD was more expensive. (Asus MB's)

    the Asus P5N32 is a good choice to OC that CPU you have. it has superb power circuitry, the "8-phase" is not just a clever trademark.

    as far as how much OC, i OC the P5GD2 11.1%, to bring it up to an even 4.0 GHz. i gather a lot of people are OC'ing a lot more.
