View Full Version : want to overclock
03-09-2001, 11:37 PM
I have an old 486 Pentium 25 megahurts and I would like to overclock it to one of these new Athlon processors. My computer also has a modem, cd-rom, and a dot matrix printer.

hmm, i think you mean you want to upgrade it.
Overclocking is when you take a CPU (like your 486 25mhz) and run it faster than it was meant to run at (like at 30mhz)

oh, so i can't make my 486 pentium turn into one of those Athlon foot things?

I'm sorry, this might be a little inappropriate, but...
Methinks someone here is having just a wee bit too much fun at our expense. :laugh::laugh::laugh:

More like a light paperweight, or a keychain is even better. :)
