Default Overclocking records!

I overclocked a 3GHz P4 to about 3.87GHz, 258 - 1032MHz FSB, 1.63V or so, and it beat a stock Athlon64 Newcastle 3500, but by only about 12 points in the Sandra CPU arithmetic test. We both got 12K-something. I did an unstable overclock to 4.11GHz, but it'* retired from overclocking and now runs stock with a good cooler on it.

I took two sticks of DDR266 memory, one CL2 and the other CL2.5, and ran them in dual channel, DDR400 2.5-3-3-7 at 3.1V. Then I tried 440MHz, and though it worked, it locked up shortly after because I didn't increase the latencies.

I ran a GeForce4 MX440 64MB video card at 1.65V AGP voltage and overclocked from 250/400 to 400/580. It'* weird that the voltage regulators let this happen.

A 2.53GHz Celeron D, for some reason, was overclocked to 3.8GHz 800MHz FSB only a few seconds after being installed. I'm sure it could have gone higher. Anyone try this one?

Some time ago, I had a GeForce FX5200 128MB, 128-bit ram, that I took from 250/400 to 316/460; stock voltage.

AthlonXP 2000, Palomino, 1.67GHz, 266MHz FSB, to 1.85GHz, 1.85V, 296MHz FSB. The Palomino core was a terrible overclocker.

Athlon64 3000, Venice, 1.8GHz to 2.493GHz, 1.55V.

Those are from a long, long time ago. Recently, I took a Core 2 Duo 6600 from 2.4GHz to about 3.8, and it stayed stable with water cooling. :p

I haven't overclocked my 8800GTS (Christmas present -really) yet because it runs about 60-70 C at idle even at stock clocks. Where can I find a good cooler for this behemoth?

So, all of this hardware is still running. Especially interesting is the MX440 video card. That was a massive overclock with stock cooling! What are your records? Depends on the people we have on this forum, I may not have gone as far as most record holders on the net.

I used to have the 4400! 939? I sold it to a previous boss for his domain controller at the office, but it ran pretty solidly when water cooled He'* the guy that didn't pay me for a while, and when he finally coughed up the money, it was well over a grand for all the labor and parts that I'd sold to him.

As for the Barton... Wow. I had no idea they could last that long. Any word on the mobile 462s? I know some of them were clocked so high they were faster than even the Newcastles when they came out.

yea got to love AMD, Bartons where very good chips, im using a Abit NF7S board, those (IMO) where the best overclocking boards back then and still beat new ones now a days fro some of the thing it could do. also they like Never crashed or locked up.

I never really got into Mobile chips so i dont know much about them,

hint... i was REALLY into this stuff about 3-4 years ago...

I had an Abit AS7 for the 3GHz P4 overclock, and now I have an Abit AB9 Pro for my Core series. I can't say I'm that dependent on them because my friends have used MSI boards as well as Asus, of couse. I'm so upset that I never got a hold of that Abit Max board for the 478s that had a cover over the caps around the CPU socket and a fan on the back. That was too cool.

Gigabyte was bought by Asus, wasn't it? I still think Abits are good because of their uGuru technology. If you haven't seen it yet, you should try it out. The only problem is that my motherboard differentiates between the regular BIOS and the uGuru by having a pink background for the uGuru section. That'* just terrible.

uGuru is great, though, for checking temps, voltages, fan speeds, adjusting fan controllers (onboard) for up to about 4 fans, or however many your motherboard supports, and, of course, overclocking the snot out of CPU and memory.

Overclocking stuff is much like preparing kidneys - you beat the **** out of them
