|-- Overclocking Continued
-- Page: 1
Our next try is going to see the
maximum we can push this chip. I know the Crucial ram we have
can handle high bus speed just fine. So after a few test runs,
we manage to hit 160fsb stable!
There it is, at 160fsb rock stable! Had to
bump the voltage up to 1.725v. I actually had it boot into
Windows XP at 166fsb, but it crashed once it started loading.
Now those are some very good marks
after doing some simple overclocking. This review is actually
written on this test machine, successfully running for the past 12
hours at this speed.
If you are looking into getting an easy
to use CPU combination, look into this P4 combo. You will not
be disappointed at how high it can go. The chip also does not
produce as much heat, this chip was at 108F at 160fsb using an AVC
Sunflower. I believe the stock Intel cooler would also
So after a 960mhz overclock, I think
it's ok to say that Intel's P4 Northwoods has come up as a chip to
consider for the power user.
[* UPDATE - 02/15/2002 *] - chip is now
doing 162FSB, for those benches follow the link below for the Forums!
- OC's like crazy
- Does not produce too much heat
- DDR supported now through the chipset
- None, at a 960mhz overclock...sheesh
