WITHTEETH Posted November 25, 2005 Share Posted November 25, 2005 (edited) I have a 2.4C Pentium4 Which is notorious for its overclockability. I want to overclack it to 3.2. The CPU that i previously wanted was a 3.4E Prescott, but these suckers take up 104watts power outake and idle at about 50c. Not to mention the $285 price tag for this overpriced CPU. OCing 2.4c to 3.2c ~ 2400Mhz divided by 200FSB demonstrates a multiplier of 12. So, a target of 3200Mhz dived by 12 gives a required FSB of 266Mhz to reach that speed.This is my target. I ordered a new CPU fan and Artic Silver paste for those few extra degrees to keep it nice and cold as I pump it up. I have not done this before so im wondering if anyone here can give me some advice. What do i need to do to overclock this baby besides going into the CMOS and changing the FSB to 266Mhz and adding a superior Heatsink? Random Articles at [H]ardOCP.com. The overclockability of the 2.4c mirrors that of the other great Intel overclocker, the Celeron 300a. Given the fact that most P4s can overclock to a minimum of 3.0 GHz with the retail HSF unit and with little more than default voltage, that 12x multiplier becomes critical. When coupled with an FSB of 250 MHz, the CPU Edited November 25, 2005 by WITHTEETH Always outnumbered, never out gunned! Unreal Tournament 2004 Handle:Enlight_2.0 Myspace Website!
