issue on overclocking

by BillyGilbreath In reply to issue on overclocking

Not much "stepping" to it. Just set the motherboard jumpers (or CMOS) as if the processor were faster than 266Mhz. Usually, the increments are in .5x (.5 times 66Mhz). If it is set correctly now, the "multiplier" will be set at 4x. Set the multiplier to 4.5x and see if all is well. If it goes, try a higher setting. When you reach a point that it doesn't work, try slowing down the access memory in CMOS. This requires increasing the numbers related to memory access since those numbers are related to time. I never do this because I think it tends to defeat the purpose of overclocking -- INCREASING performance.

If my info is correct, it isn't that easy to overclock celerons, they are hardware wired to prevent that. I've something like you'll have to do some soldering to get it to run at a higher speed.

1. Goto www.TomsHardware.com, this site is great for anytype of hardware fidling.
2. To make sure that you don't completely melt yer CPU, there is some sodering to be done. The site above has a very detailed explination on how to do it right.
3. The Bios setting is half of it. Check your motherboard Docs for jumper settings to change MB acceptance speed.
4. After all is said and done: add more fans, check the CPU temp often, and check the RAM temp often. There are issues with memory management on some 66mhz MBs and running overclocked CPUs, the Mem manager gets flooded and will fry causing major data corruption.
5. Good luck... you'll need it

Intel started disabling support for other multipliers on there processors, without changing the chip itself you can can overlock it by upping the motherboard's FSB (Front Side Bus) speed assuming your motherboard supporrts higher then 66mhz. Your processor would normally use 66fsb with a multiplier of 4. If your motherboard supports it, you can change the fsb speed to 75 which would be 300mhz for example. Take a look at:
