Hey all, Love the forum, this seems to be the place to go. Other forums are okay, but this place has some really dedicated people, and for that I have a couple of questions. You can check my system specs to the left there. First question of the day: I have my P4 630 3.0 at 3.825...and that's all good and great, but it won't pass Prime95 unless I set the voltage in bios/OC Guru at 1.51v, and Systool/Everest Pro read out as 1.48v. I have heard that you should be able to sufficiently OC a 630 at stock voltage (1.4)...I think I can maybe pull 3.4 out of it. I did a V-mod to the MB, and that stabalized the voltage so that I didn't need to go above 1.51...but still I feel that is a little high and maybe I'm wrong for 800mhz of OC. Maybe it's my mb..dunno, it's hard to get much from others on this M/B...I know it's old, but it's gonna last till DX10 and my next update hehe. Any opinions? Any pro help would be greatly appreciated here! Also, I can hit 4.0ghz, but it runs very hot, and I gotta turn the voltage up to 1.53 or 1.56 to pass Prime! I've heard of hitting stable on a 630 w/lower voltages and air cooling. I will not go water, wanna keep it all air and in the case, so please do not suggest water. If I can get lower voltages @ 3.8 I'd be happy as a clam! AGP/NB V is set at: 1.65, reads 1.68 DDR V is set at: 2.65, reads same Second question of the day: I just bought a 500gb Seagate Barracuda 16mb SATA drive from newegg for $130, I was pretty stoked. I am just wondering if that will hinder my current OC levels down. I have heard a little bit about this, but nothing on this board, which has me somewhat confident, and somewhat worried. It does have PCI/AGP lock frequency settings in bios, I have the most recent bios for this board. If anyone has the answer to this, it would be greatly appreciated!!! I would have posted these in the correct areas I found both at, but nobody has posted in months at these locations and let alone have read them, so I figured I would like to get a sooner reply and possibly some good info! My CPU runs about 36-38C idle, and gets up to 63-65C at 3.8ghz w/1.51v (1.48v readout), and at stock speeds my zalman keeps this sucker way chilled (52C at max load w/fan on low speed!!)! The reason I bought this setup was to have a decent OC rig to get me by until I can afford a better core 2 system w/dx10 card to do the same to! I love tweaking this thing, and have it stable, I would just like to have my Sata drive work with current OC and find a way to drop voltage down some so the cpu will run a little cooler. Thanks for your time if you read this whole thing! I look forward to getting the great help and support you guys provide!!
