must....reach.....3.2ghz...

Ok, so I can't make my p4 2.6ghz processor run at 3.2ghz YET....

My multiplier is 13, my current fsb is 240, would like to reach 246...

Vcore voltage: 1.625
Ram frequency: 333mhz ( or 5:4 , I think )
ASUS P4P800 board...

So, what am I doing wrong???

Tell me if you need more information....


NOTE: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!- cooling is not an issue!!! - !!!!!!!!!!!

  1. What RAM are you using? What manufacturer? Also what kind of power supply do you have?

    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    P4 2.4C @ 3.0GHz 1.525V Stock HSF
    Abit IS7 BIOS v1.3 GAT Auto
    Corsair XMS 512MB TwinX3200C2 2-3-3-6
    GeForce4 Ti4200 AGP8X 128MB
    Seagate Barracuda 80GB SATA
  2. yeah.. If you're on a 5:4 ratio, your RAM would be running at 192Mhz, and PC2700 would not be too happy.. of course if you have PC3200 (or better) that shouldn't be the problem.

    I would suggest increasing your RAM timings.. 3-3-3-8 or maybe even more. If you still have no luck, see if you can increase the RAM voltage slightly, that may help.

  3. I can reach 3.7gig 160 fsb with my little 3.06 on my new P4C800-E. Surpriseing runs well didnt crash or bsod on me once had to have the voltage to 1.65 but hey thats all good for 3 hours of testing. But i have ddr400 and run a 533 chip so I have lots of head room in the memory department.

  4. Try raising vCore to 1.65v or more (up to 1.70v, as needed)

    Try raising vRam to 2.6v

  5. answer time :P

    I use 2 sticks of 512mb CORSAIR PC-3200 400mhz ram.

    And my PSU is ... wait a sec... ATX 400w

    I'm a bit short on knowledge on RAM, could you educate me pls? :P

    I have never found how to change timing in my bios, but as for RAM voltage, how much should i increase ?

    oops, hadnt read that, cancel my question bout rem voltage then :S
  8. I would really love to learn how all these memory timings work, how to manipulate them, and what each number in the sequence actually means.

    My OS features preemptive multitasking, a fully interactive command line, & support for 640K of RAM!

    Exactly what i think :P
  10. You COULD use even more vRAM, but you really shouldn't need to as long as your RAM is PC3200.

    Overclocking the CPU to 250FSB while using the 5:4 ratio puts your RAM back up to PC3200 speed, but can put additional stress on the RAM due to timings. Which is why I suggested only a slight increase in vRAM to fix that issue.

  11. What sucks tho is that i can't reach 320mhz ram frequency :S

    Because in my BIOS, Ram settings are not put in the ?:? form but rather in these 4 options : 400, 320 , 266 , im not sure bout the last one, cuz ill never use it ...

    So right now I'm in 266 ..... is there a way I could boot in 320 ? my RAM voltage is 2,6 right now ...

    Thx to all of you guys help, I made it to 3.2ghz :P
    woot!
    I've run sandra all day and it looks awsomly stable!

    One last question now ...

    I KNOW this has nothing to do with CPU and should be in the Overclocking->3d chip section , i've been there ... but the forum is barely runnning, no way comparing to the level of activity on this one...


    I want to overclock my Radeon 9000 PRO 128mb to get better graphics performance when using AF/AA ....

    I was only able to reach 290/290 ( up from 275/275 ) with RAD clocker and Omegadrivers v. 2.4.78 ...

    Now I have 3 questions for you guys ....

    Is there a way I can reach higher ( higher than 300/300 if possible )

    Can my AGP/PCi "?????" ( don't remember how it's called :(- ) settings change something ???

    A friend told me this was suicide for my vid card, but could my AGP slot voltage be changed from auto to deliver better overclocking results ?


    As always, Cooling is not really an issue ....
  12. Hmm, can't...reach...320. Try raising the memory voltage a bit more...if that doesn't help, try using slower timings (3-3-3-8 for example).

  13. cant do anything with timings either, as i cant find em in my bios :(
  14. Look for RAM settings where it says "by SPD" and set that to manual, it should give you control over your other timings.
