Overclocking / temp Monitor

By nick.askew ·
I have a ASrock 775i65G with an Intel Pentium D **5+.

I am looking to overclock this if it is possible, and wanted to know of the best way of doing this and what software should be used, whilst doing this i want to keep an eye on the temp of the processor as I have heard they are hot beasts, what will monitor the heat best for me.

any webbys people can direct me to would be great as well.

Many thanks in advance

Overclocking / Temp Monitor

by jdlewis In reply to Overclocking / temp Monit ...

OK, Sorry if this is not much use, but I have been trying to do the same thing - only with a Pentium D805 CPU. By simply adjusting the Front Side Bus (FSB) setting in the bios (in 5Mhz incriments), I have managed to increase the current speed to 3.10Ghz (155x20). This is the highest I have managed as after this point the system becomes unstable for want of power to the cpu. Unfortunatly I have not found a place for adjusting the cpu power settings in the bios.

As for monitoring the motherboard temperature is concerned, it is completely unsupported by Asrock (yup, I asked them) and the only program that I could find that would do the job was Systool which is available at However, I should warn you that this software is still in its beta stages and I wouldn't garentee its other features - some havn't been implimented yet.

Should you find ways to get past the blocks that I have come across with the power settings, I would be gratefull if you would post the answer on this forum.
