Help with my new PII 400 System Overclock

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So,

I just got *my* first computer from Uncle last week, that is, my parents have a computer, but they keep it locked in the bedroom so I don't get to use it much.

Anyway, I just got this beast, and from what I can tell, it seemed worth the $60. He said he cut me a break being his uncle and all. I mean, the monitor is pretty sweet.

Anyway, down to brass tacks, its stats are in my profile just for future reference.

Im trying to figure out, what can I get this bad boy up to?

Also, I take it the temps are going to get pretty out of control, just by looking at the other motherboards.

My uncle told me I could prolly up to 1ghz with this guy, with the right cooling, said something about water-cooling, but aren't water and computer mortal enemies?

Anyway, any advice and or help would be much appreciated.

Also, in your experiance, how well do computers run off of the power generated by Karosine generators? I figure I can take this beast up to my tree-house. (That way I can play my games, without all that racket from my mom and dad fighting getting in the way of my experiance. Ya know? LoL!)

From your last thread, you seem anything less then a n00b, but anywhoo.

Those old computers can only Overclock via jumpers. so, look for Jumpers on the motherboard that have things like "FSB" and "System Clock Rate" or just give us the name of the motherboard.....

also, the stock cooling will be fine, I have had SLOT A CPU's with no air circulation, and are still running..... so don't even think of Water cooling...
