Intel Celeron D 356+ Help

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I am using a Intel Celeron D 356+ (3.33Ghz) and I am not happy with the speed. It is the same speed as my old 1.8Ghz.
I am using a MSI MS-7267 Mobo (model number 945GZM3).
Can you give me step-by-step instructions for overclocking? I have a 550W PSU and have good cooling system. I would like it to be fast like a 3.33Ghz and stable (not bothered about a few hiccups).
Many Thanks,
Jonty

First, welcome.
Second, fill out your system specs in the User CP.

Also, what do you do with your PC? Game, Surf the internet? What exactly is it as fast as your old 1.8Ghz in? What was your old 1.8Ghz?

There's a way you can try, but I'm not 100% because I've never owned an MSI board but apparently, there's the Cell feature which could allow you to overclock that 356 to 4.0ghz and more.

Look in the manual and you'll see, it's on page 3-24.

Here's the manual just in case: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?f...56&type=manual

BTW, if you have the stock cooling, watch out for the temps, anything higher than 60c for full load is very, very hot in my book.

ok I have found the manual. It has the Cell_Menu. What do I change under there? (i am noob in bios)
Thanks,

First, change the frequency of the CPU and leave everything else at auto.

I think the max value setting you'll have it's 20mhz increase which it's nothing but if I understand correct, the max value that you can achieve would be from 0mhz to 20mhz, as seen in the PIC (see attachment) and that could mean 133 to 153 and you won't have to do nothing but to increase the CPU FSB Frequency, the rest leave at AUTO.

Anyhow, here's the pic:

Just the frequency of the CPU. That's all you'd need to change.

Seems like if 20mhz is the max you can do and IMO, that's not good for a Celeron D.

I had a Celeron D but I ran it with a 200fsb, that made a little bit of difference, anything below that? it wasn't acceptable, so from 133fsb to 200fsb you'd see a difference, except that MSI board may not reach to that level but 153 will be the max, or could be.

Hi,
I changed FSB to 200 and my computer wouldnt start. Anyway i removed battery and put it back in a set it to 160 (4Ghz). 200 was 5.5Ghz btw. It seems a little bit faster but still not as fast as my mates who has a 3.4ghz (not overclocked)

A Tuniq Tower 120 will keep that thing to 200fsb but you'll also have to find where to change the Voltage on the CPU, if there's such option.

Anyhow, keep raising the fsb till it won't boot, do a 1mhz increment. It's the stock cooler for crying out loud! It's not that good but try anyway.
