there is no secret, chips of the same stepping wont OC the same way all the time, I ve seen people with my CPY not being able to get it over 2.4, it really is a game of luck

Not really, it is a matter of cooling, your motherboard, and your OCing skills (just knowledge about OCing basically), and ability to think things out logically, that helps sometimes with your BIOS.

So OCing is basically 30% money, 25% equipment and 45% skill/knowledge.

No matter how much percentage of skill or knowledge u got overclocking something beyond its ability is impossible... from 2ghz to 3.44ghz!!. People cant get Venice 3500+ over 2.4ghz my friend this is weird overclock.

Maybe not on phase... Probabally just a suicide run, that didn't even get past Windows....
I've gotten mine to get past posting, and freeze at the welcome screen @ 2.91GHz...

its not wierd...when you have sub zero temps you can have the crappiest cpu in the world and still overclock it to those speeds...its all about cooling, not a freakin stepping -_-.

EXACTLY!!!
I could get my CPU to run at that speed with a VapoChill LS, it woulden't be stable though...

Well, u r right he got his cpu -20:S idle and load -1 wata hell !!

VapoChill LS [AC] <<he uses this, so the more cooling u get the more overclocking???

Iam just wonderin wat Vcore is he running, i mean at least he needs 1.7v for this overclockin, dont u think this will cause electrons to suffer?

Ok, I've got $50 that says you can't get a i386DX-33 above 3 GHz.

nasa might be feeling generous and lend you a few gallons of liquid hydrogen (1*K above absolute zero
) go for it, lol

The 146 line has long been known to overclock better than the 148's. With the right 146 and water setup you can easily reach 3.3ghz let alone maybe 3.4.

Just because you have a phase change doesnt garuntee a good OC, some of these optys get the 'cold bug' . They wont overclock that much because of the extreme low temps. So it does really come down to steppings to get the best OC.

steppings, luck of the draw, and phase is what gets you that high....but I have seen some rediculous steppings get close to that on air....one was a KAB3E sandiego...
I would say overclocking breaks down as this:

30% money
30% equipment
40% knowledge

the knowledge part is about knowing how to squeeze the last drop of performance from each component (memory timings, cpu speed, dividers, etc..) Usually takes alot of testing
