I have a week 44 chip with a 650 core. Should I be able to reach 700 with a GFD? I'm new to this game and don't want to fry anything, but I can't stop the noise in my head. I'm driven to experiment with overclocking by some force outside of myself.
I would appreciate any advice on the subject.
You're missing the whole point of this forum. Most of us Focus on the Overclocking of 'Cases and Overclocking'. Maybe you're in the wrong area. All of us here have oc'ed computer that we are trying to push to the limits. We push the envelope. We try to achieve that highest warp factor (9.1, 9.2, 9.3! 9.4!! Go, Baby, Go!). Do you understand? We our always pushing our systems harder, trying to reach that land of infinite megahertz.
salt, in case you missed it, GFD=Golden Fingers Device.
Only way to find out if you'll hit 700 is to try. However, I suspect you will easily hit 750. But again, the only way to find out is to try. The possibility exist that 650 will be the limit!
How much difference does the extra 250mhz make? I plan to use a K7OC card. Do different methods of overclocking an Athlon produce greater or lessor preformence yeilds at a given rate? For example, if I use K7OC card and you use solder to reach 750mhz from very simliar chips, will our chips really preform equally?
I'm not sure I made sense.
Great football game, but the Rams got lucky two weeks in a row. Next year the Saints are going to humiliate them, then Tenn. and Tampa will laugh. Eddie George rules!!
Sorry I strayed from the topic, but it's the superbowl.
Unfornutanely I dont have a GoldFinger yet.. so to change the multiplier I have to soldering.. mine now is at 7x... and at 700, L2 1/2 works fine... but at 7x107 (750) it only gets 100% stable with L2 at 2/5.
