Overclocking Intel(R) Celeron(R) 2.66 GHz

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I would like to overclock my old pc's processor!.

the specs are:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-8VM800M-775
Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.66GHz
RAM: 704 MB
Hard driver: 74 GB.
Bios:

Code:
BIOS Version8VM800M-775 F7
Award BIOS TypeAward Modular BIOS v6.00PG
Award BIOS Message8VM800M-775 F7

I get 134 FSB ( no clue what does that mean )
Can any one guide me of how do I overclock my processor? thanks
Just to mention - I am newbie to overclocking.

well you need to fill in your system specs to help us.

http://www.overclock.net/specs.php

the basics are that you increase that numer (fsb), this works in conjunction with the multiplier.

So if you have a multiplier of of 9 and your fsb is set to 389.
389 * 9 = 3500(mhz) giving you 3.5ghz

But judging on what you have given us i take it you have multi of 19??

To make your system stable you have to increase voltages through the CPU and north bridge, this is why after market cooling is essential but you can squeeze some extra speed with out touching the voltages

As I said, I'm new to this stuff.
So anything I did not understand from what you were saying, I marked as Italian.
And, I'm using now the program EasyTune 6.
The defaul FBS was 133 MHz, I raised it to 140 MHz and the CPU speed raised to 2806MHz.


I Tried setting the clock thingy from the Bios, But it's option-less!
there aren't any options for FBS or overclocking there.

I believe that it's important to mention, that if I tried to set the FBS through the program EasyTune for more than 145, the PC will crash in few seconds.
I added to the main post the number of ram i've got ( 704 MB ) if that helps.

edit:

I would also like to mention, that any movement that I do with my mouse, or any activity on that PC, the CPU will raise immediately from ( for example ) 5% ( without doing anything ) to 85 - 99%.
So if you could direct me for some benchmark or check of whats wrong with the system, or any diagnose tests I should do, thanks.

( if it helps)

It might be doing that if you have some kind of speed-stepping enabled. I don't know much about that chip so it's just a guess, but maybe it is increasing CPU usage because it is coming out of a stand-by state. My computer does that, too...if I haven't touched it for a while and then open something or click the mouse it might go to 98% usage briefly.

You might not be able to overclock much more (if at all) than that because the software stuff just doesn't work that well. can you change your voltage? you are already at 1.37 volts; I don't know how many that chip can handle but chances are you aren't going to get a ton out of it without (a) changing the voltage (b) using good RAM (c) using a good aftermarket heatsink/fan

I've got 400W power supply, Maybe I should change power parameters in my Bios? if so, how would I do that?

Mate i know very little about OC ,All did was up the FSB a bit at a time until it crashed at about 2.98ghz. Then i played with the latency and ram timmings .To-day i installed a quality 550w power sup and a thermaltake heatsink with a variable speed fan . then i got this result ,

Could you show us the Tuner tabs (clock and Voltage) and the HW monitor tab? They are very important for CPU overclocking and could give enough information to help you OC the CPU further.

As a side note, download a free soft called OCCT and after each FSB increase make a 30minutes stability test. It's the least you can do to see if your OC is god or not. Also when running OCCT keep an eye on the temps: they must not go over 60°C, or the CPU may be damaged; if it does go over 60°C you can stop OCCT and go back a few FSB steps, or buy better cooling.

Welcome to OCN, hope it'll work.
