Pentium D Extreme overclocked in a Dell.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I had a Dell XPS600 computer that I have not used in a while.
The motherboard went bad and by the time a new one arrived I had already built my own computer.
I decided to fire it up as its been collecting dust.
I had gotten a Pentium D extreme 840 cpu from a friend.
Its an es.
I installed it and was looking around the bios and noticed a setting for cpu frequency.
It allowed me to change the cpu multiplier.
The only options it gave were 3.2 3.4 3.6 ghz.(Which one you think I chose???)
But hey thats amazing for a Dell.
ANyway just thought Id share as I was surprised.

Alright, fill in your system specs because "Yes" isn't helpful nor is it funny.

As for overclocking that XPS, it more than likely will not be stable with only one option to change.

I change pcs so much its hard to keep up.
Im always messing with something.
I filled em out.
I wasnt asking for help I was just sharing.

As far as it probably not being stable.
I had the same thought.
Prime 95 has been running for about 20 minutes so far.
Im gonna let it run for a few hours and see what happens.
