Pentium 4 2.6ghz


Recommended Posts

I have just built a new system, never been in to overclocking due to previous system not being suitable for overclocking.


This is all new to me can anyone please tell me is Dynamic Overclocking Technology (D.O.T) is good to use or is it better to set overclocking settings manually I have a MSI 865PE Neo2 FIS2R motherboard.


I have tried changing a few settings manually but system keeps crashing.


Can anyone recommend a good Overclocking Performance program ?


Also I don't under stand if processor has a FSB of 800 why is my system stating only 200MHz, currently clocked to 243MHz x 13.0 3159 MHz


Many Thanks for all your help in advance

Dont use any overclocking programs, Overclock only in Bios. If u don't know where that is then, well u shouldn't be overclocking. Read up on the material, do searches here and on the net. It is not difficult. The reason your system says 200 is because u really dont have a 800fsb its 200 X 4 (multiplier) = 800

Coolers are up to you man. Depends on how much you wanna spend and how picky you are about noise.


I've got a Thermaltake Spark 7+ on my P4 2.8GHz, it's cools really well (41C-42C) under load at 3.2GHz and the Arctic Silver hasn't even set yet. My only complaint is that it's pretty loud when running wide-open. I ordered it from Xoxide.com for around $30.


I've heard some good things about Zalmann coolers too. Supposed to cool really well and be pretty quiet.
