intel mobo o/c
hi im new here i plan on staying and i just wanted to know is there a way to o/c a intel mobo its a intel d845ebg2

Intel doesn't want you overclocking their mobos, so they generally make no provisions for doing so, at least not in the BIOS.

That being said, you might try using CPUMSR.

SteveI 16th December, 2004 05:41 PM

hmmm.. I looked in AOAfiles, and couldn't find it.

Gizmo 16th December, 2004 07:09 PM

Ya, I had the same problem. I need to see about finding it.

GrahamGarside 16th December, 2004 08:22 PM

I don't think cpumsr has overclocking functions does it? the version i last used has multiplyer and voltage options and can turn processor functions on and off but no fsb control, you would need cpufsb for this

ELRocco 17th December, 2004 02:02 AM

i tried cpu fsb and it freeze my system but i think i saw somewhere that there is a replacement bios you can get

ELRocco 19th December, 2004 05:28 AM

hello can any of you help me

woodeirl 19th December, 2004 06:16 AM

upgrade your mb, that mb you have is not very overclockable sorry m8 :( the northbridge of that mb does not tolerate any more that the specific recommendations or the bios for that fact.

Logan 19th December, 2004 08:11 AM

Intel motherboards are known for stability, not overclocking features. You'll definately want to upgrade in order to do so.

woodeirl 19th December, 2004 08:15 AM

yep i totally agree logan :)

ELRocco 19th December, 2004 11:09 AM

ok i was just checking i was looking at this cpu+mobo deal this would o/c good right

GrahamGarside 19th December, 2004 02:03 PM

That cpu wouldnt be great for overclocking as it seems its a northwood and they only reach around 3.2ghz. what you want isa prescott.
If your budget is limited then go for a celeron d 320, they aren't great at stock (2.4ghz 256k L2) but they overclock to around 3.6ghz at which point they perform on par with a 3.2ghz p4, sometimes better.

You also will want to upgrade your ram, as you're either on sdr ram or only ddr 200/266 , so you will want to add a 512mb ddr400 dual channel kit to that

ELRocco 19th December, 2004 08:42 PM

i have 1 stick 256mb kingston value ram pc2100 ,
and i have a stick of kingston value ram 512 mb pc2300

ELRocco 19th December, 2004 08:51 PM

ok ive been thinking and maybe ill go to the dark dise with this

GrahamGarside 19th December, 2004 10:22 PM

that would certainly be an upgrade from what you currently have but I'm not a fan of the xp range, the 2500 isn't bad for the price but you will see much better results from a celeron d and it would be cheaper as well

ELRocco 20th December, 2004 01:33 AM

so go with the celeron d and a good overclocking mobo

GrahamGarside 20th December, 2004 02:52 AM

that would definately be my advice

ELRocco 20th December, 2004 03:06 AM

i want to get a soyo mobo is that a good overclocker

GrahamGarside 20th December, 2004 03:20 AM

not sure about soyo's but I've heard good things about the Gigabyte 8IK1100, they're only $62.00 on newegg and they're i875 based

ELRocco 20th December, 2004 04:43 AM

oh i forgot about chipsets im gonna go with an intel chipset and i also heard that the DFI Lanparty mobo's are really good so i thought i might get this
