Question PIV 2.26GHz 533FSB overclockin question

I will soon be purchasing the following computer

Asus P4T533-C Motherboard
Pentium IV @ 2.26Ghz, 533FSB
512MB PC-800 RDRAM
Either GF4 Ti-4600 or ATI Radeon 9700 Pro (most likely the ATI )
Volcano 7+ Heatsink and Fan
Arctic Silver Thermal Compound

as well as all the dvd, cd-rw, monitor ect. which is not important in this question

MY question is, how would i go about *SAFELY* overclocking my processor with this motherboard. I do not want to be unstable in ANYTHING. I am an overclocking n00b and i dont not know how to go about this. I am not looking for 2.9GHz speeds, just something very stable at maybe aroun 2.5-2.6GHz.

If anyone can tell me how, or post a link that shows u how, that would be great

and is 2.8GHz on a 2.26GHz processor safe??...does it shorten the life time suggnificantly?

Ok.......... for overclocking--- for mine--- i just changed the FSB to 166- on these processors- you only want to use the defualt voltage-itss pretty easy--- ill look up the board ur getting and tell u more.

The Spyder...is the processor completly stable at 2.8Ghz?....and does it still have a huge lifetime?...and dont worry...i wont be changing the voltage ...only the FSB

well....maybe if you had of spelled diseases right...hehe...

and hopefully now that the P4 2.8Ghz has been released, the 2.26 should go way down in price

Im a bit dubious about this to be honest.

Ive not seen significant numbers of people kill there P4 by increasing the voltage.

Increasing Voltage does reduce the life of your CPU, and you shouldnt be overly supprised if your overclocked CPU fails, but looking at the numbers of people who 1.85v and the number of reported faliures I dont beleve that "SUDDEN NORTHWOOD DEATH SYNDROM" exists.

but, if you can get a decent overclock like yours on stock cooling and keep the temperature down then you dont need to go over 1.7

Difference between A and B chip

- B chips have hyper threading
- hmmmm. i can't think of anymore

what are the advantages of the B chip over the A chip. Anyone?

btw, i'm running 1.75v. is that pushing the limmit? cause it only runs stable over 1.7v at 2.56GHz

Its not hyperthreading its the FSB.

B type means that its a 533fsb part (above 2gig)
A type means northwood (such as 1.6A)
no letter means willy (but not above 2ghz, where no letter is northwood with 100fsb)

You then have the place of manufacture to think about, which supposedly affects you overclock (I still havent researched that fully)

I agree

My 2.26B (Philippines) runs @2.6GHz @1.55V, I even reached 3.01GHz @1.74V WITH STOCK COOLING (and it's not even a Malaysian one!)! Now I take him @2.82GHz to run all the time.

P4 Northwood seem to die @voltages above 2.0V by electron migration, but I don't beleive they die @1.7-1.8V in realistic time (say quicker than some 2-3 years)

i'm glad it's no sooner than 4 or 5 months at the rate of an upgrade junky like myself

btw, people are selling the 2.26B OEM @ $79. is that a good deal?

okay...so i want my 2.26 to run at 2.8 .....should i increase the FSB?...or the Voltage??....or both??...what is the most stable way to increase it to 2.8Ghz while having a long lifetime?

the same for me

that's an extremely good deal!!! In Switzerland one pays $200 for a NW2.26B OEM!

@eight3446: you are able to run it @2.8GHz only by increasing the FSB (multiplier is blocked - you haven't got an engineering sample I assume). to run it @ 2.8G you have to increase the voltage to 1.7-1.75V at least.

now the question is, should i get rid of the 1.6A (oc'ed to 2.56ghz, x160fsb) i bought for $127 and buy the 2.26B for $79 and oc it to 2.8? using and epox 4g4a+.
