Old AMD Duron 1200 MHz Need help overclocking

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone im a little short on time so i'm just going to get down to the point. I have this old Socket A AMD Duron 1.2 GHz that i've had to use and whenever I overclock The CPU to over 1.4 GHz it starts up into Windows XP and resets. Sometimes it dosent even get that far please help with overclocking.
(Note Some of these specs are usless but overkill is better than underdoing it)

My Specs are:
CPU: AMD Duron (Currently running at 1380 MHz)
Multiplier: X12.0
Bus Speed Currently clocked at: 115.0 MHz
Rated FSB: 230.0 MHz
Socket: A (462)
Mobo Manufacturer: Unknown
Chipset: VIA KT 266/333
South Bridge: VIA VT8235
Sensor: ITE IT8705
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies
Version: 6.00 PG

(P.S. Im a total noob at overclocking so treat me like one thx)
And thats all if u need more info just say so!
Thanks

See if you can up the vcore or cpu voltage. Also set your ram to one speed slower than it is right now.

1. Get the MB model# if possible and the CPU part # off the IHS
2. You may, if the CPU is unlocked and I'm sure it is, be able to set the CPUs default bus speed up to 133 from 100 and reduce the multiplyer. That is if the Duron 1200 has a 100MHz FSB which the 12X multiplyer indicated.. ie 12x100=1200. With a vcore increase that should be atainable if the MB/BIOS offeres jumpers/settings to adjust that. I'd guess you can do 10x133... perhaps a 10.5x or even 11x5 in general, perhapos more dependant on the CPU part number and the core used.
Watch your full load temps, that CPU can handle 55-60c full load.
