Are p3's overclockable?
I've heard stories both ways...it checks for proper bus speeds...no it doesn't. And, when are things moving up to 133MHz FSB?
Everything I've heard points to NO clock lock. I guess someone's gotta get one and find out. Not me, at least not yet .
Uhh, thats bus lock roy, if there was no clock-lock, i'd buy that 860$ piece of PCB in a minute!
Bus lock - clock lock. From the CPU's viewpoint it's the latter. The mobo delivers multiple bus speeds and the CPU takes them. That's why a multiplier locked chip can be over clocked.
Thanks for chasing me around and keeping me on my toes. Oh, P-III 500s are going for $802 today.
Bus lock would lock the bus and multiplier. Lock the bus at 100 mhz and the multiplier @ 5.0 to get a totally locked 500
I think we're both saying the same thing. The real question remains unanswered. Now if we can get 40 guys to chip in $20 ...
Yeah, heh, if you went around all the bbs's and asked everyone to ship you 5$ i bet you could buy one... Hey roy, we should have people click on 2 banners to help us get PIII's and do some tests for them.. Im gonna post that idea in anands...
I'll take $400 for my P-II 450 if we get enough to make up the other $400 and I'll even pick up the shipping!
