    p2 450

    anyone have thoughts on oc'ing a p2 450 on a be6? i heard from someone a while ago that increasing a p2 450 to 550 wouldn't have much performance effect, but I don't know why that would be...or is a p2 450 at its freq limit already?

    Who ever said that was full of bull pucky!

    I have my P2-450 running 527 MHz. Any increase in processor speed will give you that much more performance.

    Of course it is heat that causes your processor to lock up. Your temp monitor reading is false, because at the higher FSB speeds you need higher voltage which in turn lowers the processors resisitance to heat lock ups. It will lock up at lower and lower temperaturews as you increase the voltage and the FSB settings.

    I have to use two 40mm peltiers on my P2-450 to get it stable at 527 MHz @ 2.2 volts while under full 100% CPU load non-stop 24/7. The only thing that would be better for it would be extreme water cooling or something else similar.

    i can get mine running at 527 using only 2.0V so it wouldnt make us much heat us your running at 2.2V. I realize that temp would go up one way or the other but it should make as big of a problem under 2.0V
