P4 1.6A @ 2GHz
« on: May 27, 2002, 01:50:05 PM »
I was able to overclock my P4 1.6A to 2GHz, past an FSB of 130MHz, memory problems start to show (according to the D-LED of my MSI mobo). Here is the setup:

P4 1.6A (Malaysia)
MSI 845 Ultra
2 sticks of 256MB of DDR RAM (made by elixir) rated

Crucial, Mushkin, Corsair, Samsung, etc.. I don't know which ones are available in your area though :-)

That's some really weak RAM if it can only go 130.  It's rated 133, it should at least be able to go  133 or a few mhz' higher stable.

I have not modified the memory setting of the bios, maybe I should try that and see what happens. Thanks!

Try 150 at the lowest memory settings, or pump some more voltage in your ram maybe.

2ghz only? hmmm.... me 2.24 :) some people here in ppc can go up to 2.4.

yep change memory settings or change the mem. altogether.

mine's running 24 hours a day @ 2.3GHz (144x16). ran Prime95 for two days without any problem. I'm using kingmax DDR333 @ 360 (180x2) with 2.7v VDIMM. 37*C idle, 45*C using Stock HSF.

i suggest you pump up your vdimm (as nvictus said)

mao nice mem settings what board are you using ?
alexg your idle temp is way too high ! try putting your mem to "By SPD" or "Use SPD", if there's none try 2.5-3-3-6.

might be a voltage problem.. i have the same board and am running my 1.6a @2.5, volt modded and vcore at 1.85.  idle temp 45C, load temps 49-50 watercooled.  mem settings at 2-3-3-5.  before i had random lockups, but a recent upgrade of det. drivers (29.2

I'm guessing voltage problems too.. elixir memory sticks are quite good.. I have one that can run at 150Mhz FSB.  And since it is rated at 266Mhz, it should work fine at 133Mhz FSB.

secondly, I notice that his idle temp is rather high.. I have mine idling at around 40 degrees..

mao =P
it could be because his processor is made in malaysia.. i learned that they have a higher temperature but 52 C is too much for idle

alexg,
    what bios ver. are you using?  the initial release had too high temp readings..  the 2nd one naman, too low.. try flashing the 3.3 or 3.4 revision.  that should give you the most accurate temp readings, although they're not exactly accurate.

If Elixir are quite good, then maybe it's not the problem.  He didn't say what voltage he's runnin' either.  I think it could also be a heat issue, looking at his specs again, 2 scsi hd's without a good case cooling would be like an oven.  Get a good case
