    Default What's Your Best Overclock??

    For all you overclockers, what's your best/proudest o/c??

    I'm quite happy with my 42.5% overclock on my 1Ghz AXIA. Any higher and it's unstable, but it does make for a nice boost.

    Anyone else wanna share??

    I can only get my 1700XP from 1467 to 1570ish becuase the multipliers have not been unlocked might try getting it stable above 1600 this weekend. Though it is hard only doing it by FSB increases

    Obviously sir you are not a frequenter of overclocking/tweaking forums . The whole point of having the spec in the sig is to avoid the 'what cpu/gfx/sound card etc etc do you have' if I'm responding to a query, and so that people can quickly check specs . Of course, if you think it's sad, that's your opinion. I like it

    the best cpu i have heard of so far for overclocking is the intel p4 1.8 gig northwood with 512k cache this will overclock to 2.4 gig with no modification just using the stock fan that comes with it.
    some people are overclocking the chip to 2.6 gig with slight mods to the vcore voltage but still using the stock fan.
    the motherboards they are using are asus or abit i845 based with ddr not pc 133 or rambus

    i found this forum where ther is quite a bit of detail on how itr is done [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] i think you might have to register to get access but it's worth it if your interested

    I Oc'd my celeron 300 to 450 back in the day.

    My bro witnessed an OC'd sinclair spectrum zx81, doubled the clock (cant remember the stats), with the aid of dry ice.
    Thats no lie his engineering teacher was the type who made tesla coils and ray guns out of microwave ovens!

    I have my current 1ghz Athlon running at 1200Mhz (100 x 12)stable. Using a FOP38 HS & 60mm YS-Tech. I had to get rid of the standard 38 60mm Delta as it was waaaay too noisy. The 60mm Ys-Tech is quite nice Probably going to change it to an 80mm YS-Tech to cut noise and add greater CFM when i have the chance. Im running it in an Abit KT7 (64 Bios) though, so cant run it higher really

    In the same board i got my Duron 700 running at 900Mhz stable. It did POST at 1Ghz, but was as stable as ITV Digitals future lol

    A couple of years back i managed to get my K6-2 300 up to 330 (5 x 66) with a standard cheapo cooler on a nasty Jetway board. The poor thing just couldnt go any faster lol

    Celeron 300a ---> 450 !!! 50% overclock using standard cooling (and it's still working). Try to do that with one of those new CPU.

    I've got my P4 1.8A running @ 1520 (18x140) rock solid (Iíve run SETI for 16 hours). I'm using a MSI 845 Ultra ARU Mobo with Kingmax PC2700 memory and a Creative Ti200. These Northwood chips really are the new Celeron 300As. Fantastic 'Bang for Buck' and they run nice and cool(54C full load, Zalman 6500AlCu fan @ full speed).

    PS I think showing off your system specs is quite a good thing. Not only does it help people sort out problems and make comparisons with similar systems but it's also great to show off your system to other people who can appreciate your system (and hard work).

    Doh! I meant 2520. I've got the Vcore @ 1.65 but Motherboard Monitor reports an avarage voltage of 1.56V.

    clocked my P233 to 266 first, then had a celeron 366 to 550 at the time that was the bollox.

    did read about one guy who did a P75 to something crazy like 500+ !! in a cryo freezer to keep it cool, not really cost effective though
