Pentium D 805 Overclocked to 4.05 GHz no longer stable.

September 14, 2006

Well, I’ve given up on overclocking. I know after this post that that may come as a surprise to you. I just can’t keep the machine stable. It will run for hours one day and then be buggy as heck the next. I’ve had it. The thing is, I built the stupid machine around some expensive hardware.

I’ve been debating doing the following:
1)Sell it all on ebay and start over
2)Keep it and just put up with it as a normal, slow regular pc.
3)Upgrade the chip alone.

I think I’m going to choose option 3. If this chip works, I may buy it this weekend. I’ve emailed Newegg to see what’s the fastest chip I can put in the Asus P5WDG2-WS motherboard. We’ll see how it goes. When the quadcores come out later this year, I’ll probably build another computer around one of those anyway.
