View Full Version : Pentium 4 Overclocking

Can anyone explain how this is done? Is the multiplier locked, and you raise the FSB, or vice-versa?

Just wondered, as the 3.0Ghz / 800Mhz FSB one is in my sights for April...;)

P4 is FSB overclock only.

well, unless you get an engineering sample. Those come with the multipliers unlocked. You can probably find some, if you are lucky, on ebay, but I think they might cost more;) 3.2 Ghz 800 Mhz FSB P4 looks real nice, can't wait for canterwood chipset to use it, errr... or maybe SIS 655. Intel is also going to rerelease 800 Mhz FSB versions of some of their previous CPUs ;)

I reckon the 800Mhz FSB P4's are going to be pretty good coupled with the Canterwood chipset. I'm certainly not upgrading until they're out, and benchmarked. TBH, I'm a bit disappointed with the XP3000+. The 3Ghz / 800Mhz FSB P4 will stuff it when released, and at a "mere" USD400 apparently...
