Make a new thread, post an A64 tweaker + CPU-z screeny and we can go from there
Cool, il stop craping on the thread
Actually bothered to do some research last night, did a few tweaks at my daily runner clock speed (2600mhz) and it seemed to help, just gotta give it a go a full wack when I get home
Just don't go too far FIBRE+ I've been dropped outta top10 already, don't need you making it worse hehe
Sorry about that
I must look pretty dumb with a Pentium 4 (I see everyone else with AMD or at least Pentuim M) but here goes...
[hwbot] 48.609 - Pentium 4 @ 3.0GHz, 1GB RAM @ 200Mhz 3-4-4-7 [/hwbot]
that still whips my last PC, which was in the 50's!
Heres my first overclocking attempt... YAY Athlon XP!
[hwbot] 45 - Athlon XP 2500+ Barton @ 2315.2 MHz (210x11), 512mb of Kingston Value ram @ 210MHz 2.5-3-3-6 [/hwbot]
[hwbot] Tim S - 19.703sec - Intel Core Duo T2600 @ 3110MHz / 1GB Corsair XMS2-5400UL @ 318MHz 3.0-2-2-8 [/hwbot]
I've ran out of headroom on the board (vCore/vDIMM), but the chip is still cold - shame the board goes back tomorrow. The chip is a retail one, not an ES, btw.
It's reading vCore wrong, as it's actually at 1.5v in BIOS.
Not too bad tim
Was gonna say . You've wiped the board; nice one
what you mean first person on bit to get his hands on a yonah???!
...nice one biggles, would you mind sharing what mobo it was??
It's the AOpen i975Xa-YDG, probably the best board out there supporting Yonah atm. I wish I had more time, because I've got a prommy sitting waiting to get cold.
ah...the AOpen that is really really really hard to get hold off...hold that thought for a second though, you said that you had run out of vCore and vDimm rather then the chip being too hot?? how would the prometia change that??? or are you thinking what I am thinking that colder = better, and it is well worth a go, especially if you have acess to that kind of equipment??
...even back in the days of the KT133 boards, I found AOpen boards to be stable, yet lacking the Bios options to take it that much further...I take it 1.5V is the max you can get to the CPU? Any vCore mods out there already from some hardcore nutters?
I was thinking that there might be a bit more in the core if it's kept a bit colder - I'm using a tiny Aluminium heatsink at the moment. I've got a couple of other pentium 4 heatsinks, but they seem to rock around a bit too much - I'm not sure that the contact is good enough to get to the same clock speeds, nevermind higher.
pretty much along the lines what I was thinking...would you not have to adapt the head of the Prometia quite a lot though?? Are there mounting holes on the AOpen board?
It uses the same mounting as the S478 Pentium 4 boards.
The chips run out of FSB before they run out of headroom
Be interesting to see how much further you can push that chip, you guys want another board/SLI bridge posting up to bit HQ, give you a bit more playtime get some runs in with 7900GTX's too
I don't know how much time I'm going to have - the chip may have to go back before I get the chance to play again, especially with AM2, Computex and a few other things () in the next few weeks.
