abit zm6 overclocking
despite all the excellent advice I got on these forums about how far I could take my celeron 400Mhz on Abit ZM6 - ie up to 500Mhz was about the limit! - I have now been running this board at 600 Mhz for about 6 weeks without a glitch. The system - homemade. with some failrly old components, doesn't seem to be that much different. I set the core voltage to 1.75 and away it went. Could it be that such a low voltage has little significant difference to how the CPU operates or am I completely off the point?
A bit more knowledge would be appreciated.
All processors are unique in one way or another. The voltage provides signal strenth. A higher voltage will raise the temperature of the processor. If cooling is not a problem, then increasing the voltage is one way to increase the clock speed and maintain stability. There may be other issues with raising the voltage that I'm not aware of, but I think the main point is heat. I don't recommend changing voltage values. Unlike some of the other overclocking settings, if you go too far with voltage, you'll have a nice museum piece on your hands.
Its as I summised Jimstep and I suppose the ole addage must apply - 'if the thing works ok don't fix it'. Thanks for your time.
