Can't overclock my P4 631 because my board(MSI-PM8PM-V bios ver.3.3) doesn't support overclocking is there an other way to overclock it? please help:( 

More about : overclock 631 0ghz

You can hit 3.99GHz on it by linking two of the pads under the CPU together, thus bluffing the motherboard that it is a 1066FSB processor instead of an 800FSB. Google 'pin modding' or 'pad modding'.

I had the same CPU at 5.2GHz for two years. Sweet chip, all things considered - and some Italian maniacs pulled one of those to 8+GHz on LN2 cooling.

The easiest solution would be to find an Intel P35 or 965-based motherboard from Gigabyte or Asus.

Does it not have the Core Cell menu? MSI boards often do.

Not always.

Anyways, you are welcome.

Confirming what you wrote above ...
I found this on Page 5 in the User Manual for your motherboard:



"This mainboard is designed to support overclocking."

Page 12:




See "Advanced BIOS Features" and "Advanced Chipset Features".

Do either of these BIOS menus allow you to do manual changes
e.g. to FSB and multiplier?

You know your board can support core 2 CPU's? It will support up to an E6700 with the latest bios. I wouldn't recommend pin modding you could fry everything if your not careful, but it looks like you should be able to overclock on this board.

Its not worth the risk when you can find those old Core 2 Duos pretty cheap and will run circles around a P4. Even with a 3.9Ghz OC on that P4 its still a P4.

SAAIELLO is correct, you really shouldn't pin mod, pin's aren't thinks that are very easy to mess around with, it takes huge percision, and you really should just get the chip SAA suggested instead of almost frying your chip :p
