Centrinos how far can they go?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
HOw good are the centrino laptop processors at overclocking. Thinking of getting one I found on ebay as its rather new and very cheap!!!! Just wanted to know if they can be overclocked. Its a 1.5GHZ dual core with 1mb cache x2

at 99p I thought its a pretty good bargain well even at the price it is now, what I want to know is how far canI push this one. Item number 120231291576

Is it worth buying???? as I may be on a winner here

NO its going to be used like the AMD mobile was as an over clocker in a normal desktop machine. I know it can be done but wanted to know how much or how far they can be pushed???

What board do you plan on overclocking that with. I know boards that support that chip are usually expensive.
