Howto overclock the Pentium 4 Socket 775

Posted on Friday, September 16 2005 @ 08:34:15 CEST by

It is not so easy to overclock socket 775 Pentium 4 since Intel 915 and 925 chipsets have a protection against overclocking. Learn how to be successful in overclocking this type of CPU.

Overclocking socket 775 Pentium 4 processors has some particularities, comparing to overclocking done in other platforms. The first difficulty is that since the first Pentium 4 the clock multiplier is locked. Only engineering samples (that are made for testing) and the Extreme Edition models have the unlocked clock multiplier. Engineering samples are identified with the letters “ES” and are not available in the market. Some manufacturers, such as ABIT, have created motherboards that can bypass that protection against overclocking.. Check out the full guide at HardwareSecrets.
