Pentium D940 Overclocking ???

  1. Hi,

    I used the asus NOS utility to overclock my processor, but it seems I can't get the max out. If I overclock it with 20% my system won't boot. The max overclock that runs is 15%. Is it possible to get high speeds out of the pentium D940? And how do I do it?

    The cpu-cooler is the HIGH TOWER HT-102 by AEROCOOL

    Intel Pentium D940 (2 x 3,2 GHz)
    ASUS P5B
    Tyrex 800 MHz RAM (2 x 1024MB)
    Ati X1600pro
    Raidmax viking 630W power supply
    2 x 74Gig Raptor
    Thermaltake matrix case

    It could be that your memory can't support an overclock that high.
