it's harder to overclock a dually than a normal computer, you have to get everything extremly stable, their are more variables so that when you do overclock them it's harder to figure out what is causeing the problem, have you ever had any practice in overclocking?

 

EDIT: just read that your new to overclocking, you might want to try doing it on a machine that you don't care if you fry so you can get some practice, refer to this guide here\ for some more info. you should get that rig folding! :foldon:

OMG please do not ruin your system. ( No offense. ) A noob at overclocking can VERY EASILY screw something up BEYOND repair. Please, for the sake of all of us here, please get some practice in before you ruin a beautiful PC.

overclocking problems you'll hit:

 

1: dual xeon system

2: asus motherboard

3: dual socket motherboard

4: dual xeon motherboard built by asus

 

 

now don't think asus makes a bad dual socket 604 board (the PC-DL is thier only one if I recall correctly). it's a fine board @ stock speeds... but sucks if you're going to oc with it at all.

not to discourage you from overclocking, it's just not a good combo for a beginer to overclock succesfully, maybe try overclocking your sisters comp(if you have a sister, if not a friends) that way if you ruin it...A)it's not yours....B)she'll get into trouble, not you

 

that is a really nice sytem besides the asus board, we just don't want you to throw out the large investment you made in those parts

Thats possibly one of the funniest things I have read in a while. :P ( The asus-hater part at least... :P )

Despite to what they say, id try it, a little at a time, and see how she does, Water cooling wont speed a computer up, just make it run cooler.

well it depends because if your computer is running hot then it WILL run slower, but if its already running cool then it wont speed up

 

on the topic... you should really get a program to see your temps, but of course if you just want to do water cooling not for the temperatures and do it because you want i guess thats cool too.

 

and i would listen to bigred cause he is a genius, and has worked with quite a few computers form what i hear.

good luck with whatever you choose

When I just started to oc, I tried doing it to one of the office computers that I built for my father. I changed a setting and KABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!! (after which it didn't turn on.) But I left it off for an hour, turned it back on, and it booted up fine. :)

Do you have D0 or E0 stepping Xeon's? I know there is a bug between the D0 stepping and AGP. :closedeyes:
