    You definately need the new 40.41 detonators...it will increase score by 1000.

    Look at my score...there's some motivation for you. :D

    Oh no!! Dont tell the devil I didnt send my registration card in. I dont want his thugs to find me. :eeek: :eeek:
    I wasnt trying to be mean or anything, I just found it weird, thats all. My card is a PNY 4400 and at 4600 speeds it gets about 10600 3dmarks. I was just curious why yours were a little low. Thats all. :D
    If you update to the 40.52 dets then there is an overclock utility built into the drivers, at least thats what I found. I just have mine running at 300/600 because I dont need anymore power than that and when I get to around 310/620 I get some whacked out artifacts. I hope your 4600 can get a little higher than that. :D I need to get some ramsinks, that would probably help since the ram gets kinda warm to the touch.

    Oh, and of course Spike has to show off his 9700. :rolleyes: :D

    It's fine, don't fret it. I was wondering the same thing, I had a friend come over and laugh, all I did to him was make him watch 3DMark run, and he sobered up ;)

    Nice scores, spike! ATI sure does cards right!

    downloading the "beta" drivers as I type!

    Over and out...

    Nice score spike...but I'm curious...why is your FSB only at 128? Mine is at 142 plus it's an athlon. Did you raise the multiplier a lot or somethin'?

    [j/k]Don't waste your money on another AMD, trun to the light ;)[/j/k] /me goes and fills out windows regestration card, hurridly :naughty:

    Seriously, though, if you get a new system, get one that supports ddr400, like the soyo kt400, or the p4x400 (like mine). It improves the system's preformance sooooooo much, it is hard to beleave.

    The overclock was successful, and I;m still messing with it, attempting to squeze more out of it!

    I told one of my friends about my overclock, and he thought I had gone bonkers! Poor guy, he is still running on a 466 Celeron (hey, want to run PCMark for a while??? :hehe: )

    Signing out...

    Rest assured, I have all weekend...

    Ditto here about the 40.52 drivers, all I could get was the 40.41s!

    Anyone have a way to overclock the Intel P4s more? I don't think that the cpu multiplier does anything, sandra regesters no change...

    I got the 40.52s at http://www.guru3d.com more specifically winnt, win2k/xp, and/or win98/me

    Hey, I like my Athlon, nice and cheap, but performs up there with your expensive P4:p :D I already have an abit kx7-333r but i will get a kd7 when they get really cheap and I have extra money. That and I wont be getting an XP unless its either a 1700+ for really cheap or the last XP on 462 before hammer. mmmmmmmm hammer, too expensive for me though. Gonna get me a barton. :D

    Darn, there was no performance change with the 40.52s.

    I'm hoping to break 13k...that is my goal.

    Its a Pentium 4 2.0A which means it defaults to 100 fsb (400 because of quad data rate). The only way to overclock P4's is to increase the fsb, no multiplyer options since it is locked.

    I will be getting a 2.53B for today so that i can get started at 133fsb :D

    Yes but they sure run hot too .... ouch!

    I might have over 15k when I next post :)

    Ok, new PCMark scores!

    http://service.madonion.com/compare?pcm=692593

    Just reloaded Windows eXtremely stuPid, for the 3rd time in 2 days, so my scores are prety good!

    Anyone had stability problems with the 40.52 drivers? My system kept crashing, even with the overclock (both cpu and GPU) turned off! I reloaded (using the old drivers), and life is good... I'll try the newer drivers as soon as I get a restore point going ;)

    Spike: I think that 3.0 GHz will come easy, with the 2.53, you might even be able to do it with the stock heatsink!

    BTY, anyone know about the intel CPU multpliers? I keep trying to set mine higher, but my speed doesn't go up, I don't even get higher temps :(

    Thanks!

    BTY, it's my birthday! Yeahoo (donations towards a new shiney Pentium 4 2.8 GHz accepted!)!! I'm also sick :( What a bummer :sigh:

    Like Spike said earlier, Intel CPUs do not allow multiplier adjustments. My friend just got his 2.53 and is running at 3GHz easy at about 40ºC...with PCMark CPU score of about 7200, nice.
