new to overclocking
I am going to attempt to O/C my cyrix 166+ but have a question regarding the jumpers. In my m/board manual it gives the options for the jumpers as 50, 55, 60, 66, or 75. How do I O/C this to 187 or 200 or whatever?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to e-mail me as well.
Welcome to overclocking.
Your 166+ is running at 66MHz with a multiplier of 2.5. First raise the bus speed to 75, giving you 2.5x75=187.5.
If that works, look for jumpers to change the multiplier and core voltage. A multiplier of 3 will give you 225.
If that works, move on up, one change at a time. At some point it will fail to boot - usually a black screen and no action. Shut it down, start over with the same multiplier and the next higher voltage. Don't go more than 10% over the default voltage until you have beefed up your cooling.
As you can see, this is fun but it takes great patience.
