    3 ghz 630 to 4 ghz P4 EE in a Dell !!!

    To Irishmark, I forgot to ask you about your cooling. Are you able to snap a picture and post it in this thread. If not, then is the heatsink all aluminum (silver color) or does it have heatpipes coming oup through the top?

    3 ghz 630 to 4 ghz P4 EE in a Dell !!!

    1.3875v is your default voltage then. If you got back to pages 5 & 6 of this thread you will see instructions (along with a picture of where the VID pins are located) on how to go from 1.3875v to various voltages that are higher. Start on page 5, Post# 94 and work your way forward. Those...

    It sounds like your CPU is not going to be able to do it at default voltage and maybe not even at all. I having a feeling that the 1.42V you see is probably from CPUz since Prescot's did not have default voltages going above 1.4v. Try downloading RightMark CPU utility and that should give...

    3 ghz 630 to 4 ghz P4 EE in a Dell !!!

    See the picture towards the top of this page that shows the underside of the CPU. If you look in the bottom right corner you will see that there is conductive paint covering two of the CPU pins. If you look closely you will see that there is a small piece of tape covering the top pin. Here is...

    Memory for x38 Dell T3400 workstation

    I've used quite a bit of SpuerTalent memory and haven't had any problems with it. You may want to read throught hat thread - the consensus seems to me that it is pretty good quality.

    Memory for x38 Dell T3400 workstation

    Are you sure that you really need ECC memory? If not, then you can get get 8GB for about $140 plus shipping (plus tax if you're in CA). http://forums.anandtech.com/messageview.aspx?catid=40&threadid=2116041&highlight_key=y&keyword1=4gb

    Bios Oc Access for D975XBXLKR B305

    Are you certain that you connected the right pins? Here is a link with pretty good pictures. Also, depending on what you used there may not be a good connection between the pins. http://forums.legitreviews.com/about6375.html

    Accelero S1 cooler in a Dell XPS 420 case?

    I was wondering as well if it will fit in the XPS 420. Looks like the Accelero will stick up above the top of the video card by several inchhes so it might be a close fit. For the people who don't think it's necessary, please keep in mind that the stock cooler on the 8800GT is very poor and...

    3 ghz 630 to 4 ghz P4 EE in a Dell !!!

    It may work and get your CPU running at 3.73GHz. Probably don't even need to worry about boosting the voltage as 3.73GHz shouldn't be that hard. All you have to do is insulate the one pin and run silver paint from the one below it so that it goes over the tape and covers that area of where the...

    What would happen to a tualatin running at 1.60/1.65 volts?

    Tualatin Mod: That is some classic stuff Here's a link to an article that I wrote almost 5 years ago. I read back through it and I don't remember that much about it. Good luck. http://www.overclockers.com/tips965/

    3 ghz 630 to 4 ghz P4 EE in a Dell !!!

    Here is my latest overclock in a Precision 390. CPUz incorrectly reads the voltage at 1.53v. I had to increase the voltage from 1.3v to 1.4v. Ran the system for 24 hours in room where ambient temp was 95F and had no Prime95 errors or other problems. The fan was rather loud at that high of a...

    3 ghz 630 to 4 ghz P4 EE in a Dell !!!

    Finally figured out the mod using Presler and CedarMill processors. You have to insulate BSEL1 with tape and then make trace from BSEL2 to BSEL1 (the trace will be on top of the tape). The screen shot below is from a Precision 390. Had to boost the voltage up to 1.4v. Also, Prime95 didn't...

    I don't think memory dividers would be the issue.
