Good overclocking Socket 370 board?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just came into possesion of a HP Pavilion 512n with a Socket 370 Celeron 1.4Ghz CPU in it. Is it worth it to buy a overclockable board for it and if so, any suggestions?

So far the only board I have found that supports the Celeron 1.4Ghz is a DFI for $55 from Newegg, but it has a VIA chipset. I've never tried to overclock a Socket 370 before, not sure if it's even possible

It's struggling with XP Pro right now since it only has 128MB of RAM, so I'll need to get some more RAM too.....but don't want to spend tons of money on this old a system.......

I've already got it folding

I wouldn't bother putting any money into that system. If you have some more ram kickin' around then sure pop that in But....

You can overclock S370's and VIA's can do it just fine. But seriously, dont waste your money, for $55 you can get a motherboard for a much newer system that will greatly outperform that 1.4 Celeron

as a matter of fact i just max out my hp 512n.

diamond 9250 ati radeon 256mb pci grahics card running at 1680 x 1050 on my samsung syncmaster 206BW 20" lcd
512 mb- pc133 ram but mb only support pc100. thats some slow memory.
160gb western digital 7200rpm

dont think you can get it any faster than that.

I had an Abit VP-6 ages ago, supports SMP on all SKT370 chips. O/Cd my PIII 1.0 Ghz to 1.8 ROCK SOLID STABLE.
