View Full Version : overclocking PII 350

02-06-00, 07:51 PM
ok, i have a pII 350 w/ 64mb RAM, a sound blaster PCI 128, a Creative Annihilator sdr, 6GB HD, 40x cd-rom, 4x4x32x burner, a 3com ethernet card, a 56k modem, and i think that's about it.

my abit motherboard has this soft menu thing that lets me overclock really easily, so i changed it to 3.5x112 to get 392. it's been running fine under these settings, but i want to make it go faster. can anyone recommend to me a safe setting that won't burn up my computer? mostly i'm concerned because the system only has one fan and i think the video card runs pretty hot since it has its own fan too, and i don't want any short circuits or overheating.

actually, that's about it. http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/frown.gif

i have about the same setup (but an ASUS mobo). from all the research that i have done, the popular consensus is that 3.5x112 is about the furthest you can go without
a) using better cooling methods
b) risk damaging your cpu/mobo without a)
c) running into dicey pci problems with your other cards

from the people i've talked to, you would want to invest in thermal paste, a better heat sink/fan, yadda-yadda, if you want to go any higher.

i couldn't be bothered with all the hassle. i'd rather just improve other components and replace my chip down the line.

just my $0.02 worth.
