Hooray for first OC!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Well, I decided I wanted to get some more life out of my 2.5 GHz Celeron (Northwood core) before I dumped it for an Athlon 64 3700+ Sandy, and decided to OC it. I've got it at 2.75 GHz, with a 110MHz FSB and a 25x Multiplier (!). I think I'm gonna up the FSB to 120, giving me 3 GHz flat, and see if it's stable... I know it's not anything major, but it did raise my 3DMark03 score by 270 marks. I'll post CPUZ verification in a little bit, gotta get the internet working on it again... I'm on the laptop right now.

Right on man. Go for it, and keep it up. 25x multiplier is uber high!

Yeah, I saw my FBS and thought it was really low for 2.5GHz...

It's at 2.85 (115 x 25) currently, crunching some numbers to check for stability.

Internet's still not working.

Darn. Windows wouldn't load at 3 GHz (120 x 25), so I lowered the FSB to 117, but still no luck. Brought it back to 115 x 25, Working all right. My BIOS has crap for options, so it looks like I'm stuck here.

Well I dont know anything about celly's, but hey you OC'd, and thats all that matters. Right now im only running stock which is 133x18, locked multiplier aswell. I don't think you can unlock your multiplier but if you could that would be make a huge impact on your OC.

I dont know the stock speeds of your videocard, but 1.1GhZ looks pretty awesome. If that isn't OC'd you should give that a shot? Its uber easy!

[EDIT] Just made 2 posts one after the other for no reason, and I dont know why

Sorry about double posting (again ), but I ran 3DMark03 last night right before going to bed, and got a 7849 with my CPU at 2.875 and my 6600GT at 575/1.15. That killed my previous score (7542) by more than 300!

I also ran through the Prime95 Benchmarks, but I don't really know what all the scores mean, so...

That's the way. That's what this is all about.

Prime95 is used in the overclocking community for testing system stability. If you can run your system for 24 hours on blend then you are running a very stable system and overclock.

Alright... I ran it for about 3 hours, but my temps worried me (56* C) So I shut it off.
