I have a really old CPU. (Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz) :P
I just want to play around with my pc, and "tune" it a little
Have a Asus P5N-D MoBo, and i have entered the BIOS several times, and i have learned it very well, and i know what i am doing. I have a option to overclock the system by : 5, 10, 15 and 20%. I have started with 5%(3360 Mhz), and i used the pc for 9 hours-the temperatures have raised for 3-4 degreesC, i didn't notice anything else weird.
Then i went to 10% (3520 MHz). I opened CPU-Z and i noticed that the voltage is going from 1.216V to 1.312V. The Bus speed variates from 219.97MHz to 220.19MHz (when the cpu was 3.2 the bus speed was 200 MHZ)
Same variations appear with the FSB : 879.97 to 880.03 (bf OC-ing was 800)
I am using a stock intel 775 cooler, But i am going to buy a Cooler Master Hyper TX3.
My temps: CPU 59C
I am pretty new in the pc world, but i am a fast learner and i already know a lot of things.
By opening this thread i want to find out, with your help, how far can i go. I will try to make a picture of my BIOS so that you can have a better overview of my situation.
