    Default Overclocking the intel pentium D 930

    Without any Vcore changes this processor could work stably at 258MHz FSB, i.e. at 3.87GHz clock speed. However, this is just a preliminary result. As we have expected, the increase in the processor Vcore pushed the overclocking results even higher. Since the nominal core voltage of this processor is slightly higher than that of the 920 model we have just overclocked, we took our chances in raising the Vcore a little bit more, up to 1.475V. After that our Pentium D 930 CPU could boast absolutely stable operation at up to 267MHz DSB frequency giving the bus frequency of 1068.5Mhz.

    As a result, the maximum frequency we managed to reach during Our Pentium D 930 overclocking experiment was 4.0GHz. In absolute values, it is more than during Pentium D 920 overclocking, but in relative values it makes only 33%.

    So, it looks like the Presler processors boast much higher overclocking potential than their counterparts on the Smithfield core, and can easily reach frequencies up to 4.0GHz thus outperforming even the top-of-the-line Pentium D CPUs working at their nominal speed. However, will this overclocking be enough for Pentium D 920 and Pentium D 930 to outperform the top dual-core AMD CPUs? This is the question we will try to answer later in this article.

    As for the working conditions for the overclocked Pentium D processors, we have to stress that they are quite acceptable. The CPU temperature when they were topped with Zalman CNPS9500 LED cooler was close to 70o C, and the system proved stable in all widely spread benchmarks that were completed without thermal throttling activated.

    What board are you using for these overclocks? The best overclocking results come from a P5WD2-Premium or you get even better results from a P5WD2-E due the the 975X chipset.

    Some of my friends have Pentium systems, as much as I've tried to discourage it, and one of them has his PD 920 @ 4.25GHz on air (P5WD2-E) and the other has his at 4.12 or something like that - P5WD2-Premium.

    Hi, i'm curious to know as to how u managed to use the Zalman 9500 with that motherboard (the product website says that "3.5mm is required"..) did you have any troubles installing the cooler?

    thanks, ken

    ps, am on the same mboard/processor combo - managed to get to 3.35GHz stable on standard cooling, reduced v-core to 1.25V ~38C idle, 57C on full load

    Iam running a P5LD2-V Board right now with a P4 521 2.8ghz CPU overclocked to 3.73 FSB 266 Ram set on DDR2667 mV 2.00V. Works nicely.

    XBench 103 , Geekbench 194
