View Full Version : How high could I go...

How high do you think I could get my CPU to go?

I've got a board that automatically adjusts the VCORE, but I canonly up the FSB. Right now it's at 153, stock being 133. I have RAM rated for high than the CPU so I don't think that would be a problem...

Check da sizzig' for spezzifications...1606.5MHz right now....

Kind of impossible to tell how high someone's system can go...there's a lot of factors to consider that are different in every system.
*Mixture of hardware installed...compatibility between that hardware
*RAM...brand, and how it was handled, plus just "luck of the draw" with it.
*CPU...how it was handled, and "luck of the draw"...if you got a CPU that will skyrocket, or perform like a dog.
*Temps...environmental temps in the room, how well the HSF was installed which equals how well it will perform

I bumped it up to 1.66GHz (2000+ speeds).
The FSB is at 158, which gives me a bus speed of 316. Apperently I got a good stick of Ultra PC2100. I ran memtest and it seems to be stable. That's what I'm impressed with, that RAM. I've heard the 1600+ is a great OCer, and I'm starting to see that.

Running the burn in test right now, idiol it's about 45C full load seems to be 51C.

So far so good. Every MHz counts:rolleyes: ...lol
