View Full Version : 8X the processor speed

Did any of you hear about the new PC that comes with twin 466 Celerons. The motherboard will support 8X overclocking!!!

I guess you would have to put the machine in the freezer a couple hours before running it that fast.

Anyhow, the article I saw this in is here: http://www.zdnet.com/zdnn/stories/news/0,4586,2319637,00.html

I'm curious to here others impressions on it.

For a LAN party I helped setup a while ago, they had a budget server with a dual proc mobo....didn't get the funding for dual PIII's, so they picked up a pair of Celery 500s.

I wasn't prepared for this box to perform well, but I went ahead, installed NT 4 Server, did my usual tweaks to it, and expected some laggy LAN. I clocked it modestly when I was done with NT setup, somewhere in the high 600's.

To my surprise, this thing ran a server, and two Quake3 servers for the LAN, which I don't think ran past 50 on the head count....but what amazed me was watching task monitor all through the LAN....the box barely passed 50 % CPU util for most of it.

I was a big fan of the old Celery300a @ 464 on the trusty Abit BH-6 back in the days, I was psyched to see them still kick a little butt in this setup.

Didn't even see that....I was wondering why the old 466 mHz and not Celery II's.

Saw another post resurrected from '99.....what's up with the old digging up of old posts?

Hahahahahaha ok FIRST thing, this article is from 1999, thats 2 years ago.

Second thing, its NOT 8x overclocking, it can support upto 8x CPU MULTIPLYER. CPU speed = FSB*Multiplyer. The Celeron 466 is running @ 66Mhz FSB * 7 = 462Mhz. Got that??
