    Duron overclocking

    Ok, I am finally getting rid of this of this prehistoric K6-2

    My question is, once my Duron 800 has arrived and sufficiently burnt-in, can I crank it up to 133FSB?

    All my RAM is PC133, and the PCI bus should go back to default at this speed right?

    The mobo is probably gonna be the Asus A7V133

    Cheers lads,

    133x8 is 1064Mhz. With fairly good cooling I dont think this should be a problem. You might have to whack the core voltage up a bit though

    I got my 800 to 1GHz. That's 133MHz x 7.5

    Can't get it any higher, currently using 1.775v, 1.85 get me no higher.

    I am NOT modding this board for higher voltages, simply cos it costs so ruddy much

    The HSF I am thinkin of using is the taisol CGK 742. Rated to 1.2ghz, but a lot of people have had them on higher speeds.

    What do you lot reckon?

    Neil01952, if you're going to overclock, I suggest the GlobalWin FOP-32-1. It's a pretty good heat sink with the 5400RPM fan so, it's not that noisy.
    The best cooler now is ThermalRight-SK6.

    Hardocp and Tomshardware has review a handful of coolers lately.

    If you want to overclock any higher than 1 Ghz , get a ceritied 300W PSU. I've got my Duron800 max @1Ghz & any higher number would not let the OS to load.

    May I know why is there a Reset Button on my casing?
    I have a Windows PC that likes the Reset Button very much.

    If you want to change the multiplier on your Duron then you'll need to unlock it by closing the L1 bridges using a Pencil or Conductive Paint. Quite easy to do even while shaking like a Parkinson's sufferer with bad DT's.

    I'd recommend you unlock it as it gives you more overclocking options

    There's plenty of info around how to do it.

    If you're considering the Taisol 742 then you'd be better paying the extra for the Taisol 760 which has a copper insert in the base. A popular mod with the Taisol's is to replace the slimline Delta fan with 2xYS-Tech 60mm fans.

    Don't forget to invest in some arctic silver.

    Only unlocked my Duron 750 2 days ago and I ain't had much chance to investigate. At 100MHz FSB it will POST at all multipliers 5x-9.5x at default voltage. Currently running at 7x133=866 at default voltage, with 4-way interleave enabled and RAM at CAS2.

    Hopefully I'll get a chance to try some other settings over the weekend....

    PS. I'm using a Taisol 760 and a Abit KT7A
