Question overclockability of the 4sda

I would like to see what sort of speeds you guys are hitting with the 4sda mobo, cpu + fsb + mem + temps + voltages heatsinks. If this has already be done could you please reply with the message id and I apologise in advance...

It will be interesting to see how far these can be pushed

As for mine here they are:

CPU: 1.8a @ 2.2GHz
fsb: 122MHz or 488MHz
mem: PC2100 @ 325MHz
HSF: Stock Intel HSF
voltages: All stock
temps: system @ 25c CPU @ 45c idle + 60c full load (CPU stability Test)

I am going to get the AVC sunflower in a week or 2 so it would be good to see what sort of temps you guys are getting. (I am hoping to hit 2.7GHz with it)

Another good heatsink would be the Swiftech MCX478.

AVC Sunflower is quite possibly the best HSF there is for P4 with only very slightly more noise than Intel stock.

MOst importantly, in our testing we have found no board comparable to 4SDA/+ in terms of overclocking.

See my sig for my current project. While I'm also patiently waiting for my sunflower, unfortunately I'm already at 1.8v w/ my lil Northy running at 138fsb... Not sure how far I can push further... idling temp around 45c and 53c when pushed...

There's also coming a new AlphaPAL for Socket478 in the near future, but I for myself will install my Zern watercooling components today, as my Intel heatsink runs out of power.

update:

have had cpu runnin @ 2.4GHz (133 * 18) with stock hsf and voltage @ 1.65.

temps were hitting 65c under load....

seemed very stable runnin seti, cpu stability test, prime95, 3dmark 2001.

was not happy with the temps though so clocked back down to 2.2 until i get my new hsf.

Have seen a hsf for p4 rated to 3GHz from the states, but have lost url

am goin to wait for more hsf to appear before deciding which one to get (although if i find that 3GHz one i might get it, was $38)

will keep you updated. still cant believe i am running at 2.2 @ 1.5 volts

neone hit 3GHz+ yet with a 1.8a????

You´re looking for a good cooler, then get a Thermalright SK 6
"Hartware-Edition" (this is a modified version and comes with a 80 mm Delta FFB 0812 EHE, which is the strongest fan on the planet :-D )
You can get it here: http://www.pccooling.de/thermright/tr005.htm

And a review of this special edition here:
http://www.hartware.net/review.html?id=150

It beats every other air cooler.

These are german sites, so use bablefish.

i had an AMD b4, and used a delta screamer on that. very good fans, however also very noisy.

my current case has 2 80mm and 2 120mm fans on it and i can hardly hear it (got the 120mm runnin on 5v). I want to keep this one as quiet as poss. i went for the p4 instead of a new amd chip because i wanted to reduce the amount of noise...

my old case used to make me feel sick if i was sat too close to it cause of the vibrations from the 8 fans on it lol...

if i can help it i want to get 2.7 with minimal noise, and dont say water cooling - my case must be mobile for lan parties (and u still need fans neway).

noise is a big issue as i told the wife that my new rig would be quiter as she was getting upset with the fact that my pc used to be louder than the vacuum cleaner hehe

i know the sk6 is a good hs and with the delta screamer would be awsome but wouldnt it require some modding to fit on the p4... dont know if i could be ar**d to do that. its taken me 3 months to mod the case and buy all my new bits neway - i just want to use it now.

thanks for the info neway, i will keep it in mind

cheers

hmmm... that sk6 does look sweet, but wouldn't it be better with a 60mm to 80mm converter, would focus the airflow more.

damn am i tempted....

Well, the new Thermaltake Volcano 7+ doesn't look bad... according to overclockers.com hsf database, which I found to be the most complete and objective one available, it's just as good as the swiftech when set to high and comparable to AVC sunflower w/ moderate noise when set to medium.

The SK6 w/ C/W of 0.36 looks comparable to AVC & V7+ on medium settings but I'm pretty sure it's louder. Moreover, I don't think it fits socket 478 does it???

Personally I'm not that fussed w/ HSF with excessive noise. Coming from Alpha 6035 w/ Delta I spent more time/money tryiing to get a better case w/ better airflow so that I can accommodate a less noisy hsf like Glaciator. I think the adjustable fan speed/noise is a big plus for me!

Unfortunately it's a rather pricey piece... about $45.

The tuned Thermalright SK6 comes with everything needed, so that it can be used on AMD and Intel boards. It costs 73 euro (about 63 $).

Here a link to a cooler chart:

http://www.hartware.de/review.html?id=167&page=4

(in german )

Here you will find some links to reviews of the standard version, in english too, but not of the tuned version:

Beerman,

Can you tell us WHERE EXACTLY I can find info of this particular TUNED SK6 fitting on P4 socket 478????

I was looking for 478 in the whole article but no luck. Perhaps babelfish is not going a great job but I can't quite imagine how the number 478 would get mis-translated...

Either that, or you can turn any 80mm fan diagonal on a regular SK6.

Sorry, I thought it would fit on P4 too.

Hopefully the new Thermalright SLK 600 (or a special version) is going to be compatible with socket 478.

Look here at this nice heatsink here:
http://www.overclockers.com/articles532/

Another damn good one would be the OCZ Goliath (not for P4 yet either ).
A review of it here:http://www.ocprices.com/index.php?command=view&ID=942
Website:http://www.ocztech.com/

The question would be to pick the Swiftech 478 B (newest revision) or the Thermaltake Volcano 7+.

If you don´t like the noisy Delta FFB 0812 EHE, you can buy the Swifttech heatsink without it.

At www.pc-cooling.de you would save 20 euro (about 17 $).
A good and silent 80 mm fan instead of the Delta does not cost so much.

For the Thermaltake Volcano 7+, I have found a good review:
http://www.overclockers.com/articles539/

Heatsink ranking:http://www.overclockers.com/articles373

At high fan setting it performs like the older revision of the Swiftech.

70 bucks for the Swiftech+Delta (or a bit cheaper with a more silent fan) or the Thermaltake Volcano 7+ for about 45 $ ?

For V7+, the key is to find someone who's got them IN STOCK!

hehe... looks like i'll wait a bit longer to see what else comes out.

Unless someone knows where that hsf rated to 3GHz is - wish i could remember where i saw review grrrrrr...

If i find the link i will post - they had it in a review against the volcano and swiftech if i remember correctly.
