Celeron 430 Overclocking?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I've been putting together a PC for my mother, mainly from spare parts I have lying around, plus some 2nd hand Ebay stuff and a few new parts.

CPU: Intel Celeron 430 1.8Ghz Conroe 800Mhz FSB 512k L2 Cache
Motherboard: MSI P4M900M3-L VIA Chipset
PSU: 350W Delta
RAM: 2 x 512MB DDR2 4200
HDD: 40GB WD Caviar IDE
GPU: Geforce 7300LE 256MB PCI-E

I'm not looking to overclock like crazy, but was wondering what a good and very stable overclock would be? As its a Conroe core, I imagine it would overclock quite well.

Anyone had any experience with the Celerons?

Stock is 1.8, i have a 2nd rig with a similiar CPU and Board, and i got it to 2.0 Ghz, since the chipset wont clock over very well.

That motherboard won't have overclocking options. It is BSEL mod time!

Yeah I thought it was an Intel chipset, but I got confused because I was looking at 4 or 5 different motherboards at the time. I don't mind VIA, but obviously for overclocking it could be a bit cruddie.

I'm not too fussed about super-high clocks as I won't be gaming on it.

This Celeron only has a 9x multi, which isn't too bad. I think Fudzilla managed to get it up to 3.6Ghz with over 1.5v vcore :|

Like i said earlier, you'd be happy to get 2.0Ghz out of it.
But really, that proc outperforms all singlecore procs except the Athlon FX-(something)
