i have a pentium 4 506 2.66 stock and i oc'd it to 3.2 by upping the fsb frequency from 133 to 162, but when i push it up to 170 the core speed drops to 2.19. what is the problem here??? temps are a not a problem right now.
I've never heard of a CPU downclocking because of heat. I guess it could happen but I think it's probably the lack of voltage. If you want to push that CPU any further your going to have to get a new motherboard. I wouldn't even bother.
