how much have u overclocked a pice of silicon with it's stock cooling? My 1.8 p4 got up to 2.4 but can't go any further case of mobo, only supports 533mhz bus. my 9100 (250,250 (so it would be 500,500 double pumped, it had ddr)) got up to 300,265. (core,mem) wat r ur overclocking experiences w// stock cooling (wat came w/ it) if u want to shar something w/o stock cooling then say "i used watecooling...." bla bla bla remember 5mhz at a time
ATI4EVER if u want to shar something
Yea, use a spell checker and for gods sake dont type like a 1337 mofo!
I don't do overlocking anymore. I now have a 3.2 GHZ so, i dont think i need to.
Though on my 2.4GHZ (2.39) i got it clocked to 2.99 GHZ running power.
Not bad but for all i know, didnt see much change except i had to get more RAM installed.
ya just buy a new processor :)
but overclocking is fun
ATI4EVER!but overclocking is fun
If you've got the bling bling for new parts every three freakin months. The most I've over clocked my P4 2.4 was up to 2.6, anything further than that would result in program failure and eventually reboot curtisy of windows.
Overclockin is ok when:
1) U ain't got cash to buy a better processor 2) U know wtf to do 3) Ur bored.
Most ppl (like me) would just go out and buy a new chip.
WTf do you do to over clock?
On my Ti4200-128MB the core runs at 250MHz and the memory runs at 450MHz. Using Powerstrip it runs stable at 315MHz core and 533MHz
Im researching now how some people have been able to mod their Radeon 9800SE 256 bit to run almost as fast as a Radeon 9800 XT.
I am also looking into getting one of the clock unlocking strips that unlocks a AMD XP processor. I want to see if I can hit the same as a XP 2600. If not then I'll buy a XP 2600. If I kill it then I was gonna buy one anyways.
EDIT: Actually I just realized you said stock cooling. I have a Thermaltake copper fan on my Ti4200 and I have copper heatsinks on the video cards RAM as well.
My P4 2.6C HT 800FSB is at 3.4Ghz cooled by a Zalman 7000CU... But I had it at 3.25Ghz on my retail/stock cooler. I need a new PSU tho cause mine is lacking in Wattage :P As for my 5900NU I have it bios flashed to a 5950U which runs at 475/950. I have been able to overclock to 501/1001 so far. Again... Would like some more power before I overclock more.
BobDoleWTf do you do to over clock?
there are different ways to overclock 1 - CPU multiplier (if your chip supports it) some CPU have the ability to change the value of a multiplier, some this option is locked, the multiplier is a number that the CPU aplies to the Front Side Bus(FSB) to come up with the core CPU clock speed. I.E. an old P3 1ghz, 100mhz FSB with multiplier of 10 so 100*10= 1000mhz or 1.0ghz 2 - works just the opposite and is more likely possible today, since todays chip are usually locked from changing the multiplier. you can overclock the FSB of you mobo. some mobos can some cant, most you can buy off the shelf have this feature built in, and some you can do it in the BIOS and some manufactureres provide software to do from the desktop. 3 - if you really want to get crazy you can even overclock the PCI bus your GPU and video memory(tho this is usually more difficult and harder to find info about) http://www.amdzone.com/ a site with lots of different info http://www.cpuid.com/index.php a must have tool when overclocking, seriously http://www.overclockers.com/ nothing but overclocking http://www.dangerden.com/ you can stay with stock cooling but i dont recomend it, especially if you find out by chance you have one of those really awexome to have CPU's for overclocking here what i feel is the best out there for secondary cooling.
