Celeron 2.8 OC to 3.5 - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
specs filled out..
would i have to buy a new power supply in order to up the voltages? i talked to a dude at compusa and he said it depends. what mobo is best under 70?-would it be that much of a difference if i paid $20 more for a better mobo?

Well I ran the Biostar in my Compaq system, cheapo 250 PSU and was able to pull 3.5 out of it with no Vcore increase, I had no problems for 6 months. Im not to sure on other boards as this is the cheapest Ive ever bought, if you can spend more buy a ASUS P4P800 SE found here, it is probably the best overclocking 478 board still on the market. I would recomend the E Deluxe version, but since mine fried liek many others Id steer clear of it for now. I think the SE will run you around $90, but will be well worth the money, yould be better off buying it or 1 like it, because if you dont you will regret it later.
Wait if you are running a HP system it will probably be a micro tower, and as such you will need a micro board. And in most case's the micro boards have very little overclocking tools.

EDIT #2, Now that Ive looked at your specs better, you have a 775 socket system, so you need to look for 775socket micro boards. This is pretty much your options. Read some reviews on them and it should answer alot of your questions.

abit, asus, and biostar look good. i will stay away from ecs.
but i think that is the one ill buy. or this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131587
ill check back with compusa to see what 775s they have. if newegg prices are better then ill buy from them.
i also found this mercury
