well [CpK]Bastid i used to go to this o/c forum and they would say how celeron processors were not all that bad to o/c you just had to watch them with overheating. but were still reliable, of course i would never buy an intel processor, but thats besides the point.

:cool:

well its store bought. its actually a gateway. from what i hear too celerons arent that bad. like at 1.2ghz its pretty quick. i am trying to overclock to 1.3ghz. i just need to get some basic info how to do it. like how to change the multiplier and how much to increase the voltage.

hmm since it is a gateway chances are that your not going to be able to o/c, pc makers like to set it up so that you cant change settings on the processors. if you are intrested though there are a lot of good info. and links at overclockers.com,

yeah, i really doubt a gateway bios will let you change the multiplier or fsb. go look and let us know otherwise, though.

vdubvr6: jetta or gti?

i hear i can increase the fsb with a program called SoftFSB. i was wondering if i would have to change any voltage setting and i was wondering if that program would run on XP. also, will my processor get alot hotter?

from what i know
it will run with windows xp
and the cpu will get hotter because it is working at a higher speed
but not that much hotter...
it is only a celeron..
and it probably has good enouf cooling to get up to 1.3 ghz
you'll need to change the fsb in increments of 1 and test to see if it is stable..
i dont know wat most celerons can run up to (fsb)...but u can probably find out from someone here..

you can try sofware but it could confilct w/ your bios. i had an older gateway and they do have flas bios to d/l but i dont suggest you do that unless you really know what you are doing bc you could really screw the pc up.but if you want to you can try it they have some d/l that will let you o/c just talk to the tech support guy through there chat service he/she should help you. but you best bet if you really want to o/c is to get yourself an o/c mobo like from asus or msi something like that. o and try to remember if you do o/c make sure you have proper cooling.:D

anyone know where i can find SoftFSB, i looked all over, but none of the downloads work, cuz the author doesnt allow to it be downloaded from his server anymore. i need like a mirror or something, or someone that has it and can send me it. and if it conflicted with my bios how much damage can it do?

OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!! damnit. when i load softfsb it says.. "Can not find SMBus address!! "

also it dont know what kind of motherboard i have. so what do i do. can i just select any motherboard? according to sisoftware sandra 2002, i have an Intel motherboard modem D815EFVU, i dont see that on SoftFSB though. what should i do?? are there any other appz like SoftFSB i can get, if so what are they?

:D taurus i have a passat vr6, verry nice thats my baby:p r u a vdub fan!?


and ajsx15 try not to change the voltage unles your system becomes unstable then you might want to consider up the volts but remember when you up the volts you must have proper cooling bc you processor will heat up quick, just take it slow and you will be good to go.:cool:

if your bios isnt in there i wouldnt try to force it might not work(your motherboard at all), but try gateway.com and see if they have the specs of your mobo(the exact motherboard name) they might also have a driver for you mobo to change the settings, they do have good tech support but if you d/l and install the flash bios it will void your warrenty.

man, overclocking a celeron is like putting on a turbo muffler and a rear spoiler on a Geo Metro. Sure it sounds better and looks better, but it's still a Geo Metro.

your not going to see that much of a gain, plus your going to have to watch the heat on that thing, just so u know.

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
