Does anyone know how I can overclock my Celeron D 2.4GHz? It's running pretty bad at 2.4GHz so I thought it might run better with a little more speed.

I think in your signature, motherboard description is a typo: should be P4Dual-915GL, not 951GL. The Asrock is quite limited with OC, you may be able to raise the FSB by a little. It is a good budget system, but not much more: http://www.ocworkben...al-915gl/g1.htm

Thanks for finding that typo in my sig. I still havn't been able to overclock it yet though.

Did you look at the previous url and your manual?

This board does not have much options for overclocking. We tried out P4 2.4C and is disappointed that it can't go beyond 210MHz. This P4 2.4c can easily do 250MHz on most 865PE boards.

I tried it with mine. I can only get up to 150MHz without it messing up. I overclocked it to 2.7GHz. Is there a way to make it go any higher?

Well normally, I would recommend getting better cooling for your cpu and start raisin that Vcore voltage. However, i dono but this may be your board's limit. Try the Anandtech overclocking forums for some better advice. GL

Sorry for dropping in, I have a similar "wish". I have an Celeron D 345 (3.06 GHZ) and think about overclocking the CPU. My Board is an P4MAM2-V from MSI. If I enter the Setup, the only way seems to change the FSB from 133 to 142, I can't change the multiplier.

Has anyone an idea?

I have a celeron d 2.13ghz. It can do 3.8GHz stable with stock cooling at 1.5v on my abit IC7 239MHz FSB, but on my p4dual 915gl, the fsb won't go above 150. I think the board is too stupid to change the memory and PCI dividers at higher FSB speeds. It just sets the dividers for the auto detect fsb speed and that's it.

you can't on the p4dual, but the voltage is not the problem. Even if the CPU can do 3.6GHz at default voltage, which is likely. Setting the FSB to 200MHz would run your RAM at 500MHz (250MHz DDR), because with a 133MHz CPU it the bios only lets you choose 333MHz(5:4) or 400MHz(3:2) which at 200MHz is 500MHz and 600MHz respectively.

I think it's because MarcusAurelius said that you could only run it that high becasue any higher would make the RAM go too fast.

could i some how make the RAM slow down or do I just have to keep it at what it is?

When you clock the Bus speed faster, there's no option to keep your RAM at a slower speed from what I've heard.

It worked for me. I got mine up to 2.7GHz from the original 2.4GHz :D

bad call man. trying to overclock a mobile computer is generally a bad idea, basically because of the lack of upgradable cooling. if you think your lappy can handle it, more power to ya.

imo, overclocking a celeron probably wouldnt make much of a difference. if i recall, my brother overclocked his and my pIII still knocked it out of the water. its all in the cache. if it works for you guys, Great! ill stick with buying a p4, or an amd 64.

I Just Bumped Up The FSB to 200mhz (at least the BIOS told me it was 200mhz) on stock voltage, whent straght to 4ghz

it stays cool too, at 50 degrees
