    overclocking PIII450

    is it possible to OC the old PIIIs? my brother is running them and is thinking of upgrading or overclocking. here's his specs

    • dual PIII450's
    • Supermicro mobo (don't remeber which one, but its got onboard SCSI, BX chipset)
    • SC750A
    • yamaha 6x burner
    • plextor scsi cd-drive
    • V3 30000
    • TV tuner
    • kds 17" monitor
    • ibm deskstar 20 gig (ata66)
    • segate 6.4 gig
    • WD 9 gig Caviar
    • Promise ata100 controler
    • 3com ethernet

    if he decides to OC, he'll get a new mobo to OC, and run this system bare bones as a file or game server. What you guys think is the best option?

    Old p3's tend to top out around 600mhz, so you may be able to squeeze a hundred or so Mhz extra out of each of those p3's with any luck.

    I have a piii450
    ATX133 motherboard version: vt82c686a
    running 150/5x and getting 504 mhz.
    140/4.5 only gets me 464mhz.
    to get more than 504 you may have to up the volts. I have not tried..keep me posted on your findings. good luck.<FONT>
