Another Dumb Question



My friend also wants to overclock - he has 750 MHz AMD Duron with 64MB of RAM. What is safe for this?

With todays chip speeds theres very little gain in overclocking. So you get a few more frames in Quake 3 ( not that you would ever notice in playing the game). In applications you really cant see the difference.

I have an XP 1600. If I managed a 10% overclock ( which most of the time is all thats realistic) I'd have the equivalant of an XP 1700. WOW!!!

If you want to overclock higher than that then you have to start buying exoctic coolers, more fans etc. By the time you've paid for this lot you might as well have bought a new chip.


That's all okay, but I want to know HOW to overclock. And also, check out my CPU speed, it's nothing to marvel at. 500 MHz.

I have never even given overclocking a thought. I'm happy with the speed I have and it's stable, too.

I know, you don't care.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
