    Delerons and the quest for 4GHz.

    I got a new E0 stepping Celeron-D in today, I left it at this speed running Prime95 when I left the house. Hopefully it is still running when I get back. I am going to kick up the voltage another .025 and try for 4GHz tonight. Same setup as what is in my sig, just pulled the P4. Also...

    RANT! XP Install no go with new Athlon-XP M CPUs.Well

    Well I am in a pissy mood. I poped in two new 2400+ XP-Ms into the K7D. All works well except they will not boot up at the multiplier I wired them at, nor will XP install. I guess I will have to mod the CPUs, something I was hoping not to have to do. O well. end rant. :p

    Installing Alpha PAL8942. Yea how many screws.

    I ordered one of the old but good PAL8942 heatsinks from SVC a week ago, I figured for $15 it was a descent buy. Thursday night I picked up an Abit IS7 for my Deleron 330 (2.66GHz). It is overclocked to a 166MHz bus speed for a CPU clock of 3.32GHz, using the default voltage. The thing...

    Well, the 90nm K8s are out now. I got one for a friends machine, so I did not want to push the voltage much on it when I was playing. Post your overclocks of your 3000+. 3200+ and 3500+ Socket 939 90nm CPUs here. Make sure to specify motherboard, RAM, heatsink and how much voltage you are...

    Overclocking 533Mhz bus CPU

    I just picked up a Celeron-D 330 and tossed it in my free after rebate Soyo 865 board with a stick of PC3200. Something strange is occuring, I do not have the option of any FBS over 165 MHz. Whats up with this and is there any way to get around it?

    iBook G4 warranty question

    The speakers on my iBook G4 are getting really distorted. The only thing I really do with the machine sound wise is watch DVDs and listen to iTunes once in a while. I would not expect the speakers to sound like this after such a short time. So is this covered under Apples standard warranty...

    Celeron-D, overclocking and you.

    So I am thinking of getting one of those free Soyo 865 boards and a 2.4GHz Celeron-D. I am hoping to hit 3.6GHz, which would be the 200Mhz bus speed. I have heard of people doing this with the Celeron-D with stock or close to stock voltage.

    The FrostyTech reveiw can be found here, but I was looking to see if anyone here on the [H] had any experience with this heatsink. I have specific reasons for looking at this heatsink, but basically it is because of bad airflow and no exhaust fans, yet. ;) The current fan is close to the...

    Prescott Celerons

    You can read Anand's article here. See, I said it would not be that bad of a chip, should outperform a Willy P4 clock for clock any day. :p I may just have to get one of them and a 865G board and see how high they will overclock.

    64-bit ATA133 RAID Card

    A2/A3 NForce IGP steppings and high bus speeds?

    I just got an Albatron KM18G Pro mATX motherboard based on the NForce 2 IGP chipset.
