OC'ing A P4 1.6 GHz


Recommended Posts

A person that I know claims to have oc'ed a P4 1.6 by 1.133 GHz, which is BS, but what is even more stupid is that he claims to have used the stock heatsink and fan. No extra cooling. He says "They're Intel chips. Go figure why I don't need extra cooling.". Someone explain this, I know he is full of BS, but I wanna hear someone back me up.

nope, depeneds really on where the processor was manufactured. If its a malasia make, i wouldn't doubt what your friend said. I've heard of ppl gettting to 2.4 on stock so getting 2.7 isn't that hard to believe. But then again, he could easily fry his chip with something as low as the stock hsf.

Buying a board from a reliable company will increase your overclocking potential. Even if you buy 10 of the same models from the same manufacturer you will not see the exact same results from each board. Some are just better than others, and all you can do is hope your one of the lucky ones.

 

1.6 to 2.7......niiiiiiice, some people run into problems going to 1.7!
