Hi,
im new here and idk if im doing this right,

I have been having a problem with crysis, it crashes, a lot. Ever since i started overclocking my very very old pentium 4 ht socket 775, every game but especialy crysis crashes. Im kinda new to overclocking but my moderatly old 650i motherboard makes it easier.

List of Specs:
Intel Pentium 4 524 socket 775
Abit Fatal1ty fp-in9 650i motherboard
Corsair xms2 2gb ram kit
Evga 9600 gso 384 mb version
120gb sata drive
40gb ata drive
dynex 400 watt psu

My overclocking: my p4 ht is clocked at 3.06 ghz, when i clock it at 3.4ghz its fine but when i try to get 3.5 ghz i get beeps from cmos so i have to clear cmos. Then i try again and pot ram ratio to 1:1 which alowed my to get all the way to 5.2 ghz on air! but that crahses even faster. my volts on p4 are at 4.3 and my ram is stock same with chipset.
The problem occurs when i put the ram ratio to 1:1 and idk y. If sum1 can plz help.

I am also worried if i buy a new cpu the same will happen. i was thinking about:
e2200, e2220, e5200, e5400, e6xxx, e7200, e8400, or the q8200, all depends on how much money i got.

Thanks in advance!

4.3V CPU?????????????????????????????????????????????? Doubt it!

Read the stickies and let us know how you get on.

NO, your Bios goes up to 1.6125v vcore................NOT 6v

Thermal spec on your processor is 67.7c
Max CPU Voltage spec is 1.4v

Crysis crashes
an old mother dies......................

Oh sorry, anyway, I would say you have an unstable overclock.
Put everything back to stock, play for a while to see if the system is stable at stock speeds, that will rule out any hardware or software issues.
Then, go read the stickies, and start all over with your overclock.
Keep in mind not all processors, all motherboards, all hardware in general does not overclock the same. Sometimes, a small overclock is all you can muster out of a rig.

i tried what you said and yes its completely stable when a stock clocks... yes i guess i can only get a small overcock out of my rig... MY max stable is 3185 ghz so i leave it at that... strangly tho i got my rig up to 6 ghz on air and did a whole 3dmark 06 benchmark without failure, but when i tried crysis, i got a blue screen of death lol...
thanks for the help...

Should work right out of the box. I would clear the CMOS first though. And Crysis crashed cause your CPU sucked and you possible running Crysis at a resolution that your video card couldn't handle and it crashed because of it.... but my money is on a CPU overload.

Just buy yourself a cheap Core2Duo (E6x00 or above)
Pentium D's are generally power inefficient and not as good as Core2Duos, but the 5x00 line is pretty good since they're Pentium Core2s and not Pentium Ds

My cpu is fine!! its above required... and at stock it runs fine!!! sure guys i would love to buy a new cpu... maybe a QX9770 lol but i cant afford it... i still didnt find a solution to my problem... what u guys think about an e4XXX cpu??

^ No. E5x00 or above. It goes for cheap nowadays. And sell your P4 chip
March 26, 2009 5:35:00 PM

wow, you cant drop an E5x00 chip in a 650i board, alot arnt compatible with the 45nm chips

try intelburn test 1.9 if you can run this test and pass then you know that your pc is stable, sound like you need more voltage to the cpu :pfff:

If you take the stock block of a 1.8 liter B18B motor and throw a vTEC head on it, you can freely rev to 11,000 rpm without modification and still retain low end torque. Throw a a GT28RS turbo on and make GOBS of low end power with virtually zero lag and change your vTEC to engage 400 rpm lower to maximize HP. Easily 300+ rwhp.

Oh, uh... we're talking about CPUs. Yeah, don't bother squeezing mhz out of a P4. Swap it out for a Core 2 Duo...

or a Q6700, might aswell since you get 266mhz more than the Q66 and only costs a bit more at the moment.
