Overclocking 333A to 416 with no other modifications?
Is it possible to overclock my Celeron 333 to 416 without adding an additional fan and such? Is it possible to just set the jumpers to 416 and live happily ever after with a stable CPU? I know people who overclock 266 celerons to 416 with no extra MOD's, so this HAS to be possible, right?
Thanks in advance!
I have an OEM Costa Rica Celeron 333 that I run at 416MHz (5 x 83.3) at 2.0V on a BX-6 with generic PC100 SDRAM and STB Velocity 4400. Its been very stable and I run my AGP timing at 1:1. The other periphreals don't have a problem with that bus speed and I've benchmarked better than PII 400s. But I've only done comparisons against stuff like Dell and Gateway 2k, wouldn't want to speak for anyone's home built system .
If you have a retail Celeron 333, a decent Hard drive and a PCI video card, you might be lucky enough to succeed. Most of the time, at 83Mhz, it is not the cpu that most likely will give you the problem but the PCI/AGP devices that you are using. A number of SCSI cards does not operate well with a high bus speed. Heat might be a problem if your average room temp is already above 72F.
If you can boot all the way and it lock up after few minutes, try the open case approach.
