Intel BSEL & VID mod Guide - Page 10

post #91 of 521
I've seen some discussion on another forum where people just INSIST that the 1066>1333 mod doesn't ACTUALLY increase system performance, it instead only "tricks" the computer into thinking the FSB is running faster. I'm assuming based on the discussion here (and I trust here more ) that that is false.

Just to settle my newb nerves, however...there are ACTUAL performance gains to be gotten out of a BSEL mod, correct? Also, will these performance gains theorhetically differ based on the material used to perform the mod (conductive ink, copper tape)?

There are performance gains, its the same as overclocking from 1066 to 1333. Run a benchmark at both settings and you will definately see an improvement. My superpi times at 1066 on my E2160 were 25s, and 1333 they were 21s (1M). It doesn't matter what you use for the mod, they all have the same effect.

I'm putting togeter a Vostro 200/E2180 for a friend and decided to try the 1066 BSEL mod. The first time the mod never took. The second time I was more careful and let the conductive ink dry for about 4 hours (I'm using an MG Chemicals silver pen). I just booted up the second time and the CPU is still at 2GHz. I've attached a few pics to show what I did. Any advice on getting this chip at 2.66GHz. TIA.




Duh. You can disregard. The BIOS was reporting 2GHz. I was in the middle of getting rid of Vista and installing MCE and never had the chance to check what Windows was reporting. Just finished the install and XP is showing 2.66Ghz. All is good now

Performed the BSEL mod this weekend on a Q6700. The first time I did it, Windows kept crashing halfway through startup. So I performed the 1.4 VID mod, thinking it might solve the problem. Sure enough, I now start up fine. CPU-Z reports my FSB at 1333, BUT...CPU-Z is still reporting a voltage of 1.163??? So did the VID mod take? And secondly, why, is the CPU configuration different in the diagrams for the BSEL mod and the VID mod on page 1 of this thread (the corner arrow is in different place), if these were both done on the same CPU?

CPU-Z will be reading your voltage lower as speedstep will be on, so your processor will lower its speed and voltage to save power when it isn't being used. And the CPU some of the CPU diagrams are as if you were looking from the top, the others are as if you were looking from the bottom

Alright, bear in mind that I am a total newb and that this is my first OC experiment...but WHY would any of those diagrams be drawn from the BOTTOM view??? It's not like I can connect any pins that way, right?

And also, if the diagram of the VID mod is meant to be viewed from the BOTTOM of the chip (i.e. inverted to normal view?), shouldn't the connected pins be in the upper RIGHT-HAND corner of the chip as viewed from the BSEL mod angle? Because in the PHOTO of the VID mod, the connected pins are in the upper LEFT-hand corner, i.e. what looks like a literal interpretation of the diagram. Mass confusion is reigning in my head.
