OC Celeron Duo with G31

I'm joining in this site now, so i don't know much how work the the overclock, so basically i overclock my poor Celeron in 2.6 GHz to 3GHz with the SetFSB on a locked motherboard (just for test) and the result is stable but my fear is my CPU not work anymore because of the overclock, so i need the information, is viable i continue to stay the overclock or reset the FSB to 2,6 GHz again?

This overclock is for my CSGO that is not runing on 30fps locked because the CPU bottleneck.

If it's stable, leave it. Really should run something like Prime95 for a few hours, but if it's not giving you any trouble it should be fine. The only issue with using FSB is you won't have access to RAM dividers so your RAM is being OCed along with your CPU when you raise the FSB. But if it's stable then it's not really an issue.

You can grab a Q6600 for $6 with $1.58 shipping to Brazil. Even stock it would handle CS:GO a lot better.

Like Pook said, just buy the Q6600 and you'll get a massive performance boost.

Or, even better. Buy the Q6600 and OC that as well. Or look at modding some of the 771 Xeons if you really want to maximise performance. SetFSB is a great piece of software for OCing boards which have limited BIOS options.

But yeah as ThePook said, the memory timings and frequency are set when your PC POSTs and if you increase the FSB in OS (with setFSB or other software) then your ram speed will increase as well. Potentially this could mean it would be unstable as the timings are too tight - and this could happen before the cpu becomes unstable.

DDR2 Frequency 1st Place = 910.1MHz DDR (1820.2MHz) - http://hwbot.org/submission/3589779

Reference Frequency 10th Place = 711.18MHz - https://hwbot.org/submission/3978447_

BSEL mod may be a better alternative for locked board.
The FSB jumps to next available number which is 266MHz (1066MHz FSB).
This would result in 3458MHz which is going to be stable as it's not much for Wolfdale core.

The board will deal with 1066MHz FSB just fine by adjusting the RAM multiplier.

But 771 Xeon mod is a far better alternative.
It requires some bios modding (or just using a ready one) as well as socket modding but it pays off.
A decent CPU that even has SSE4.1 allowing newer games to run.

Q6600 is not that great. Sure it has 4 cores but the clock is low and it's older architecture than Wolfdale.
Single core wise it's not faster.

Also overclocking Q6600 requires more power and OEM board may not be able to take it.

Even the fastest pc in the world cannot beat imagination.

You make some good points, the low cache Wolfdales (or even the 6MB full Wolfdales) would help a lot for single core performance. The socket mods in question are just cutting off the plastic tabs on the sides of the socket and also applying a sticker to the CPU (that can be bought off EBAy for cheap).

The BIOS modding can also be easy, but it depends on the board + the chipset + the CPU you are trying to make compatible.
