  1. what kind of mobo is that i dont even think its compatible with that CPU?get a P35 mobo it will OC well.

    that mobo is for all those old pentiums and the chipset is barely capable of having it on.
  2. Quote:

    P4M890-M7 SE SOCKET 775

    • Processor:
    Socket LGA 775
    Supports Intel Core 2 Duo/Pentium D/Pentium 4/Celeron D Processor
    Supports FSB 1066MHz
    Support Intel Hyper-Threading Technology


    Seems fine?
  3. i know it says support it. but i dont think it will work in OC anyway since max support is 1066 and when it was first designed it wasnt designed for these high speed chip anyway. you need a new mobo definately!no doubt about it.
  4. OK, thank-you, I do appreciate your help.

    But, is there nothing more I can do with this current mobo to squeeze out some more MHz?

    And what newer mobo would you suggest please?
  5. have you increase all the relavent voltage already to get that OC?
  6. You wont get much more out of a crappy motherboard like that. You will probably never get over 3.2 even though a few others have.

    3.2 will be very capable on a P45 mbo like Asus P5Q pro.
  7. P35 can also do it. since the whole setup is base on a budget style.no good going for expensive P45 specially Asus-premium brand.
  8. hmmm, so I guess it's time for a new motherboard then!

    One final thing I've been trying was to reflash the BIOS, it kinda back fired on me though (as I was hoping to get more of an OC) and I ended up getting less :(


    Right, thanks for all your kind help and suggestions guys. I'm giving up with this mobo! :D About bloody time as well!!!
