Overclocking A P4
Posted 25 January 2005 - 02:56 AM
can you go out and buy a bottom line p4 with hyper threading, then just overclock it up to around 3.6 ghz?
is there a hardware difference between the frequency of teh processors for sale?
coz it would be heaps cheaper to buy a slower processor, then speed it up using overclocking.
can it be done, or does the hardware of teh cpu prevent this much overclocking?

And no two processors behave exactly the same. Someone may get a 3.0 up to 3.5, and you may cap out at 3.1. It depends on how lucky you get, how cool your system is, etc.
Cooling is a bit of a science. You need intake, and exhaust. You need to control where airflow travels. 20 fans does not necessarily make a cool system.

well there you go. it is all about airflow when cooling something.
so its not advisable to get a bottom line p4 w1mb L2 cache and see how fast i can make it?
ok then, how do i go about overclocking a celeron with a Sapphire Axion MA-39 mobo?
