Okay, now a lot of us like to overclock our pc's to get some extra performance out of it and some think we have a fast pc without overclocking. So I thought I'd start a thread that shows what clock speeds our pc's CPUs run at. I'll start off:
I tried to overclock my cpu, its a AMD athlon XP 3000+ and its running at 2.1 but in the bios i can clock it at 2.6 but wen i do the comp boots up but jus stays at a black screen cud any1 help me?
You've tried to push it too far. You'll have to lessen the overclock slightly. The best way to find just how far the system will go is to go from the stock clocks and just inch it up a bit at a time. Also you may need to overvolt the system to go that lil bit higher. But don't overvolt too much or you'll damage components over-time (I'm running at 1.5375V but that's the highest I'm willing to push it).
Don't run at those speeds anymore, but you can see what I was running at in my sig.
ohh rite cheers 4 tha help mate.
On a sidenote, You void the warranty if you overclock your CPU. The warranty for the whole computer (in most cases)... So be careful when overclocking, You could ruin more then the CPU. I got a AMD Athlon 4800+ UNDERCLOCKED :D Runs at about 38°c and ~2.3GHz (per core)
Brought my 3700+ up to 2.6 for a while, sat there quite happily for ages.
Brought it back to stock for now @ 2.2.
My Pentium 4 is running at 3000Mhz, actually CPU-Z shows 2996Mhz but its close enough.
My old Celeron rig is running at 633Mhz.
And my Mac is running at 733Mhz. I know CPU-Z can't tell me that one, i just though i would throw it in there. ;)
I've got my A64 X2 3800+ clocked at 2.7Ghz.
I also have an older rig equipped with a 754 Athlon 64 3000+ clocked at 2.4Ghz
And my mother's rig, which is my very first build with an old 478 Celeron D, is at its stock clock of 2.8Ghz (I have pushed it to 3.6 before though).
CPU-Z doesn't run quite right in Linux, so no screencap. Presently, running an Intel E6600 at a mere 9x353MHz, for an effective clock of 3168MHz. This chip will do better than that. Much better. I'm rather disappointed in this mobo, really...
