Ok, running a 166mhz mem. divider, I have the CPU up to 250mhz (2.75ghz) on 4.75v.
if i goto 255 or 260, it won't boot all the way into windows. assuming the current speed is stable, should i give it more voltage to see if it'll hit 260 (or to make it stable at 250 if its not right now)? on my MB the voltage goes from 1.475 to 1.5... will 1.5 be too much voltage for this core if i do that?
also, i did a quick benchmark comparison of the pc from when both RAM and CPU were at 230mhz and now when RAM is at 196mhz and CPU is at 250mhz. the benchmarks were significantly higher when both were @ 230mhz. so unless i can push the cpu another 10 or 20 mhz, im losing the memory divider and its going back to 230mhz all around.
also, i get some weird barely audible noises coming from my speakers ever since overclocking that i hear only during windows startup and certain benchmark programs....is this a sign of a problem or maybe i just never noticed it before and it's no big deal...?
thanks alot for the help everyone
