    P4 630 + ASUS Striker Extreme (Hit a Wall)

    I can seem to get the CPU past 4.2GHz no matter what I change.
    At the moment I have all stock voltages and settings and it runs just fine there but to go any higher I just wont do it no matter what vcore I set or settings I lower/change.
    The FSB & Memory are unlinked so I didnt think the memory would be a factor.

    Any help/idea?

    There is always a wall in OCing. There is only so far you can push that silicone. I'd say 4.2Ghz is a pretty good OC.

    How are your temps and what kind of cooling are you on?

    stock vcore on my p4 530 is 1.38v bios 1.34v idle windows
    i bet i could get 4.2GHz w/1.54v though:
    you have a nice one

    also how are you telling temps?i cant get any program to work
    RealTemp,coretemp say not suported and everest just shows
    cpu temp like bios(socket temp)

    Thanks for the helps guys
    At the moment I'm not looking at the temps as its just a test cpu and board to play with.
    Stock vcore and stock intel cooler is all im using but I'm going to turn the vcore up soon hehe, just testing another Celeron 335 thats running at 3.81GHz atm

    680i chipset is full of holes..you have to have to watch where you clock. Good luck.

    Hi, I don't wanna make new thread, so I post my question here. Are those cheap, good MOBOs on chipsets like P35, 965, P31 etc. are good for OC Cedar Mill, Prescott ?
