View Full Version : OCed P3
03-19-2001, 08:57 PM
I just tried OCing for the first time on a P3 650/100. Now how do I find out how fast I got it? Is there a program I can dl that will tell me how fast it is actually running? It says 866 in Bios but I don't know if that is right.
Thanks for your help.

Oh yeah- and I have a hardware monitor- temperature, voltage, etc. How hot is too hot? It's about 93 degrees F right now.

is it possible to overclock without changing anything on the MB or chip itself- because all I did was change the multiplier settings and FSB in BIOS? Did I actually OC it? OR am i just hallucinating and getting delusions of grandeur?

1) a program like motherboard monitor, sisoft, wpcpuid, nortons utilities, etc, can confirm your speed.
2)93F is actually ok for a P3 - are you using the stock heatsink, or something special?
3)You did it exactly right - you upped the FSB to I assume 133 - that's overclocking. Sit back and enjoy your success. Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

Currently I'm just using the fan/heatsink that came with the processor. That may change sometime in the future, but not yet. Thanks for your help LPM.
Question: Do I need to increase the voltage to the CPU? There's an option for that in BIOS but I didn't know what to do.

You mean the insert key in the gray nav-box above the cursor keys? How how has this been around? Is it standard on some lines of chipsets? Explain...
