I just came into possesion of a HP Pavilion 512n with a Socket 370 Celeron 1.4Ghz CPU in it. Is it worth it to buy a overclockable board for it and if so, any suggestions?<br />
<br />
So far the only board I have found that supports the Celeron 1.4Ghz is a DFI for $55 from Newegg, but it has a VIA chipset. I've never tried to overclock a Socket 370 before, not sure if it's even possible <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
It's struggling with XP Pro right now since it only has 128MB of RAM, so I'll need to get some more RAM too.....but don't want to spend tons of money on this old a system.......<br />
<br />
I've already got it folding <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

I wouldn't bother putting any money into that system. If you have some more ram kickin' around then sure pop that in But....<br />

You can overclock S370's and VIA's can do it just fine. But seriously, dont waste your money, for $55 you can get a motherboard for a much newer system that will greatly outperform that 1.4 Celeron

I had an Abit VP-6 ages ago, supports SMP on all SKT370 chips. O/Cd my PIII 1.0 Ghz to 1.8 ROCK SOLID STABLE.
