Don't even bother O'C'ing ...Unless you just want to of course !

Does it really need o/c'ing? I mean 1.7Ghz is good enough for most people, why not just buy a new CPU, cos you don't have any cooling yet part from the basics, so it will cost a you a lot in fans or watercooling etc, and you won't even get a very good o/c out of that CPU and mobo setup.



no, not watercooling. Fans are cheap. doesnt cost as much as you think. and i got connections to get computer parts cheap. any, was just wondering cause a friend of mine bought a 1.8Gghz and he o/c it to 2.7Ghz. just looking for a performance increase. dont know about you guys, but i notice differences.

2.7? But that wasn't just air cooled was it? Sounds more like water or sub-zero cooling to me.


It is quite possible that his friend reached 2.7ghz air cooling, and a little extra voltage. The newest 1.8's are some of the best overclockers around, thats what I'm building at the moment :)

P4's are great overclockers and 1ghz overclocks are not uncommon on air.

If it was a 1.6A or a 1.8A I would overclock it because they are northwoods, but the 1.7 willies are poor overclockers, you can give it a go though, lots of fun :)

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
