Overclocking old system

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I want to overclock my system some more. I don't think its really overclocked that much right now, maybe by like 200-300mhz. You can see my system specs below.

So I have a few questions. First off what is an accurate program to find out the cpu and mboard temps for my setup. I am using speedfan right now and I read:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Temp 1: 26C
Temp 2: 46C
HD0: 25C
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am confused to which temp my processor is and what temp my actual board is. I know HD0 is my hard drive.

As for my second question. I am wondering how accurate cpu-z is. Here is a few snapshots of my system right below.

Processor:



MainBoard:



Memory:




So with all that info does anyone here see anyway I can pull out some power out of this baby? I figure since the FSB is only at 133 and I have decent memory I should be able to pull something off. I wouldnt mind buying maybe a new fan and heatsink.

well the via chipset on your mother board could be a problem because they don't usually overclock very well.

Are the multiplyers locked on that CPU?
If not, you can up the base FSB to 166 and drop the multiplyer.
Not sure how much more you can up the FSB due to the effects on the PCI/AGP bus which will bring instability... that is why, if possible up the base FSB and drop the multiplyer (if possible).
You may be able to bridge the L1 connections to unlock it..
