Ue ni taete 'ru hitomi ni kono mi wa dou utsuru

I get Ninja plus, so I tried some overclocking. I had the CPU underclocked to 1.9 GHz for heat and electricity bill reasons, so I tried to find how much it could be overclocked and if that cooler would do another helicopter, like Intel's one.
I moved FSB to normal 2.5GHz, and it went fine, I increased FSB untile 175 and it worked too. Then I decided on a final test, I moved it to 200 so I would be able to test my memory on proper speed (it was designed for 400 MHz, however I'm forced to run it slower because of the fixed multiplier. BAD Intel.) It worked too. It's true that Intel wrote something about 3.6 GHz as maximum, but it worked at 3.8 GHz without any problem. In fact it didn't crossed 60 C degree, and it was cooler than with original stock cooler under normal frequency. (I dropped it back because it looked like CPU slighly limits itself.)

Voltage went from 1.375 to 1.288, but CPU worked. (Actually the 1.375 is the lowest voltage supported by my motherboard. The CPU was designed for 1.3 V)

Part of this success is Arctic silver thermal paste with 99.1 silver compound.

It seems that even Presscott singlecore Celerons D are reasonable overclockers.

So what's is your experience?

have you torture-tested it? ...there's a great program for doing it, prime 95. It calculates bunch of mathematical stuff (guess primes Smiley ) and then compares resoults with correct, pre-calculated ones. If you don't have errors beyond 20 mins I say it's stable Smiley

About overclocking procs... don't think it's worth it, they are extereamly fast as they are. For 3d performance it's all about graphic card these days, clock them Smiley
