There is no overclocking settings for this motherboard, the CPU speeds and core settings are automatically determined. You may be able to find a modified bios somewhere, but i would strongly suggest this not be done. A bad bios, or bad flash can essentially turn the motherboard into an expensive paperweight.

Try getting an overclockers BIOS. ECS motherboards don't usually offer the best overclocking support.

So if the ms7528 mobo is not sfe to overclock... but i use like AVGA precision to OC my graphics card(9800GT) would that still cause conflicting problems somehow? I'm new to the OC'ing. I Is it safe to...


I have never used this mobo before have others had problems with overclocking? you could try updating the BIOS/Firmware this might solve the problem. You are correct in saying that AVGA will only overclock your GFX card the bast way to overclock is go up a few Mhz at a time and test it when you hit a point were the PC becomes unstable go back a few steps so your not running it on its limit

Hope this helps tom

Im trying to decide what video card to get with this mother im a huge gamer and i play all games from CoD4 to wow. also does this board already come factory overclocked? how do i configure overclocking ?


motherboards do not come overclocked, unless you bought it from a person that has already done that. For overclocking, you go into the BIOS but make sure you have adequate cooling in your machine. When you overclock you want the CPU cooler fan to blow away from the CPU instead of onto it. Also you want more fans blowing out the rear of the case if you have one intake fan in the front, two in the rear/side panel. Overclocking causes more heat, and shortens CPU lifetime. I believe you press F2 at boot to get into BIOS on your motherboard. in the BIOS settings you can change the multiplier, but if it doesn't add up correctly, your computer will just hang instead of boot and try a different setting. Although this mobo supports Hyper-Threading and supports Untied Overclocking Technology, so it should be simpler to overclock rather than some mobos are tricky to get it going right.

As for the graphics card with this board: it's an Intel processor so you need a graphics card made by ATI. I would recommend a Radeon graphics card with this motherboard. The motherboard is compatible with Front Side Bus 1600/1333MHz CPUs, so make sure your Graphics card you select doesn't have a FSB faster than that, otherwise you will be wasting money.

Mobo Compatibility and tech/spec variations


All Asus P5GC-MX/1333 mobos are "X-series" boards.  

If you put higher speed ram on that mobo, it will just run the ram at lower speeds.

The board will not take 1333 speed DDR3, because it is only DDR2 compatible.

OVerclocking is complicated and risky, here is neither the place to teach or learn overclocking.

Some newer core 2 chips will automatically overclock, when all but 1 core is in hibernation (which will never happen if you are using vista). Other than that overclocking involves setting the bios to increase the memory buss speed, as well as slightly increasing the cpu and ram voltages as needed for stability. There is a great risk associated with manually overclocking and adjusting voltages, and should not be attempted by beginners on machines they value.

How do i overclock my pentium 4 ht 630 with a ecs 945gct-m3 mother board?


Overclocking a system leads most of the times to replacing the system. If you need a faster system, build one. If you overclock yours, you may end up building a new one anyway, and your system is still competitive, you don't want to trash it.
Nobody will take the risk to teach somebody how to overclock a system.
