Question about Intel (RK80532PG0881M) Pentium 4, 3 GHz Processor

1 Answer

OVERCLOCKING My PC has a 1.60GHz Pentium 4. In the BIOS setup, its default frequency setting is only 800MHz even though in WINDOWs it displays as a 1.60GHz processor. So I increased its frequency setting also to 1.60GHz in my BIOS setup. My question is: do you consider that as overclocking? Any opinion will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

The 800 MHz seems to be your system bus speed and not the CPU speed. They a related but no quite the same. Overclocking is usually defined as forcing something to operate at a higher speed than it was designed to. If you changed the 800 MHz to 1.6 GHz in your BIOS then yes it could be considered overclocking.

One thing I would like to mention is that when changing clock speeds in your BIOS, do it in small steps, if done in large steps it can cause system instability.

System failed due to cpu overclocking. Not setup for overclocking in the bios.

Reboot, and enter BIOS SETUP mode.
Choose "Load Default Settings".
This will "undo" any overclocking of your motherboard and of your CPU.

How to tweak your computer

Step 1
Back up important files. This includes impotant datas stored on your computer
Step 2
Update the firmware of your computers BIOS. Also update or patch your OS to the lates update and even your hardware devices must be updated as well.
Step 3
Also before proceeding ,remember to get a BENCHMARK test program that will help you see the changes and also monitor the temp. of your processor after overclocking
Make sure that your BIOS is also set to shutdown once illegal voltage or temp. will be detected
Step 4
Ensure that the CPU FAN is clean and is still calibrated to the right rpm
Step 5
Power on your unit ,hit the hotkey to access setup.On the BIOS go to ADV. CHIPSET option.Then look for"clocks, "frequency/voltage control" or "voltage options." This will look unique on each brand of computer.You can overclock by modifying "CPU bus frequency" or "CPU FSB frequency." Increase this value slightly. In some cases, you will be able to increase your "CPU multiplier" through the BIOS.If your BIOS has none of these options,your motherboard is not capable of overclocking the processor.
Step 6
You can also try overclocking your MEMORY AND VIDEO speed. Some motherboards have this options on the BIOS as well
Step 7
You can consult your motherboards manual to know the operating voltage of your cpu or type in the model of the board on yahoo or google.

I do not condone overclocking!

You can try upgrading your bios to the latest version. It may let you change the CPU settings. [...] &strOSs=38

Intel boards are usually "locked" (BIOS), and are difficult if not impossible to overclock.

I DO NOT CONDONE OVERCLOCKING. IT CAN RUIN,TRASH, BREAK FOREVER, MAKE CEASE TO FUNCTION, if something goes wrong, not yelling at you just want to make sure you know what you are trying toget into.
But...They do sell boards designed for that purpose, I think you can get the board you have w/CPU for under $100. Look for a different board if you are serious about it.

2.4GHz 533MHz FSB to 2.4Ghz 800MHz FSB

Yes, you can put any Pentium 4 or Celeronsocket 478 processor in there, including those with an 800MHz FSB onthe processor. Don't waste your time with only a faster FSB unless youjust happen to have one laying around, the performance won't improvethat much. This one is $50 from Newegg.

Upgrading the components is not overclocking. Overclocking is when youforce the components to run faster than they are rated for. Yourmotherboard is set up to allow this, through the BIOS. Severaloverclocking features areintegrated into the BIOS, including the ability to adjust the FSBfrequency, and the Vcore, DDR, and AGP voltages.

If you choose to overclock, be prepared to make frequent changes toachieve best performance vs. stability. I would suggest upgrading yourcooling to the best you can afford as well. Your PC may lock up orrefuse to boot for no apparent reason if you overclock. Be preparedfor that and know what to do about it before you start youroverclocking career.

How to overclock a pentume 4 processor

Increasing of FSB (processor clock) from 10% up to 15%.
from 1700Mhz you can get 1850 Mhz.
from 2400 Mhz you can get 2640 Mhz
from 3000 Mhz you can get 3300 Mhz
but not all mater board allow this do.

It seems like your board has been overclocked you must enter BIOS
2 methods to do so
1) Press one of these keys to do so
DEL F2 ctrl + esc.
or check lower part of screen during boot up will tell you which key to press.
When in BIOS reset to "Default" and see how you go
2) check M/board somewhere on it will be BIOS reset pins
either a 2 pin setting with no jumper across them fit jumper across them for 2/3 minutes then reset to normal and boot.
Or a 3 pin setup change jumper across middle and other pin 2/3 mins then reset them back to standard
either method should do to reset BIOS to default

Hi, On other motherboard models of Asus, similar problem was corrected by: 1. Updating the BIOS; 2. Actually overclocking the FSB to slightly higher than default (say 170 or 175 from 166, 140 to 150 from 133); 3. Slightly increasing the default processor voltage supply by increments of 0.05; 4. Replacing the 3.0 volts Lithium battery; 5. Replacing the memory to next higher speed; Never had problems like this with MSI, ECS or Intel boards. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

It sounds like you're trying to overclock your CPU, and you have exceeded what the CPU is capable of, under the current conditions. When you start the computer, enter BIOS setup (e.g. press the DEL key), and adjust the CPU settings to default. If you're not sure how to do this, choose the "LOAD OPTIMAL SETTINGS" or "LOAD DEFAULT SETTINGS" option from the main BIOS menu. If you are not getting this error until after Windows has started, then there is software installed that is trying to overclock the CPU for you. Uninstall it. It may be a program provided by Asus, or may be a third-party program. It will probably have "tweak" or "overclock" in the name. Overclocking can achieve an increase in performance, but will void the warranty, and does reduce the lifespan of the parts, and tends to make Windows crash more often. It can cause immediate failure of the parts. It should only be done if you understand and accept the risks, and have decided the reward is worthwhile. For most users, it is not worth it.

Overclocking failed

Hi, If you have overclocked: 1. CPU or motherboard not up to it - run at default speed; or 2. Memory - try using other memory; or 3. Video Card - see if you can run the Video card at default speed and not with overclock speed; or 4. You may need to up the CPU B+ a bit. If not overclocked: a. Set BIOS/CMOS to default settings; or b. Disable any overclocking feature (even if not used); or c. Lower you CAS latency. Hope this be of some help/idea. ood luck and kind regards.
