  • underclocking CPU w/ foxconn mobo HELP!

    My computer keeps freezing because I only have 150 watts to use and my CPU is a 2.4ghz p4. I have a foxconn microATX motherboard and it gives the option to over clock it but it only lets me put a value from 133 to like 266. I want to put it at 100mhz so I can drop the speed down to like 1.8ghz, does anyone have any clue how I can get this done? I read the manual and they didn't have any jumper setting for the CPU.

    same problem here : P4 2 GHz = 58 Amps, that way my computer keeps reboting when i start it up.it reboot after the post (when the cpu takes power). I have also a 150W power supply and i'm thinking of inserting a 2 ghz celeron and no P4 because a celeron uses 43 amps instead of 58 amps, maybe that would help .

        Where are you getting that information on how many Amps the CPU uses? I keep seeing voltages not ampres.

          http://www.intel.com/design/Pentium4/documentation.htm

          Look into the datasheets and choose your proc Intel Pentium 4 Processor in the 478-pin Package at 1.40 GHz, 1.50 GHz, 1.60 GHz, 1.70 GHz, 1.80 GHz, 1.90 GHz, and 2 GHz Datasheet i guess you have to use this datasheet : same as mine.
          Open it and look at page 20

            You mean watts and not amps right?

              According to page 22 of ftp://download.intel.com/design/cele...s/29074802.pdf

              And page 20 of ftp://download.intel.com/design/Pent...s/24988703.pdf

              Both the Pentium 4 1.8ghz (50.4A) and Celeron 1.8ghz (50.4A) = 78.624 watts

                Yeh, usually processors are measured in watts and not amps. Well, atleast in the overclocking world

                  I mean that celeron on 2 Ghz: ftp://download.intel.com/design/cele...s/25174807.pdf

                  And now i have that pentium 4 on 2Ghz :
                  ftp://download.intel.com/design/Pent...s/24988703.pdf

                  so that's 57.4 A and 43 A for the celeron

                    Look on page 83 for the celeron... it says 52.8w. Watts is also better for measuring draw because power supplies are measured in watts and not in amps.

                        If you think that's alot look at the Presscot processors 1 presscot processor would bring a 150w Opus to its knees
