Overclocking 500 mhz off a 1.53 ghz chip? Can u say meltdown?

I don't think this is a bad deal, the sum of the parts would be close to this cost I think, free bump, I might be interested if it doesn't sell and there's a price drop smile.gif

no dude, with a bigger heat sink you can do that easy, athlon 1800xp can oc all they way to 2.2 ghz.

Heatsink = Metal. Metal conducts heat. Granted it will take care of some of the heat, you will still melt most of your board. What you would need is a thermacool system. Overclocking 1/3 creates enough heat the it would completely melt your motherboard to the point where you would need a complete cooling system to maintain a safe temperatute of operation.

it should be fine if you have a good copper heatsink and a couple of good fans... if you read OC sites 1700+ to 2.0 ghz is pretty common...WITHOUT "melt downs" and i might be wrong..but with stock cooling as well

the last time time 50-100 mhz was normal overclocking was like 7 years ago.... rolleyes.gif

sneaker, plz stfu.
I borrowed my firend's stuff and oced my cpu using Thermaltake Fan + heatsink and pc2700 using this mobo IT WAS STABLE @ 2ghz = athlon xp 3000 speed.
So you don't know wtf you are talking about and don't reply again! got it?

I am 100% positive that i know more about it than you do, as you seem to think the speed of your memory actually has something to do with overclocking. RAM speed has NOTHING to do with the stability of overclocking because overclocking effects the speed of the processor performance. Basically, what your trying to say with your additional mention of faster RAM is that, a 2.0 ghz could not run on SD ram which is completely false. You can overclock ANY machine with ANY speed ram safely as long as you have a good cooling system. I bet you think that using an overclocking program gave you the results you think you have. Your wrong. Those programs do not overclock your system as much as they say they do. Overclocking is all in the jumpers. You melted the board if you overclocked it as much as you say you did with the heatsink and fan that you say you used.

BTW: If you dont want a particular person to reply to your thread, it would be wise to
A) Spell their name correcly
cool.gif Dont tell them NOT to reply
C) Dont insult them

Which is basically using your intelligence anyway, but im sure you already knew that because it appears you know EVERYTHING

To set things straight I run a 1.47ghz xp1700 Tbred B @ 1992mhz stock cooling at default voltage 48 hrs stable on prime95 with a processor temp of 54 C max. Also jumpers are a thing of the past on most boards OC'ing is done in the bios. And memory speed does matter if his motherboard does not let his memory and FSB run async. If his mobo only runs in sync when he turns up his FSB speed to overclock it will turn up his memory speed. So if he runs at a 166 FSB in sync his PC2100 266 memory would be trying to run at 333 and crash the system. So it is perfectly feasible he had the xp1800 at 2ghz (which is by the way not an athlon xp 3000 it is a little lower than an xp 2600 which is 2.08ghz) but if and only if the chip he has is a thoroughbred revision. Also there is not really a such thing as melting your motherboard anymore. The newer motherboards throttle the cpus(automatically lower the cpu speed by usually 50%) and eventually just shut off if they get to hot and finally a heatsink rests on the chip and doesnt touch the motherboard(except for the clip) and new athlon stock heatsinks have copper cores which = absorbs heat,surrounded by aluminum which dissipates heat to your exhaust fan(s) not conducts heat on to your motherboard and anyways your chip would fry itself and shut the computer off before any damage was done to the motherboard.
