It seems that by the various BBS posts that it is quite easy to OC. Has anybody NOT been able to OC no matter what corrections were attempted? Or is success just a matter of isolating a component that is conflicting or is not set up correctly?
Thanx for your thoughts.
I'll take two... CPU's
Its about 80% chance of getting it right the first time, but when it doesn't go right, you try something else. Sometimes if something doesn't work you can trade it for something that will. Some people think a P2 350 is worth more thana P2 333! Can you believe that?
For me it's more the challenge of getting something to do what it wasn't supposed to do.
yup..i got a stuck multiplyer locked P2 350. Id trade this thing in for a celeron 300a anyday (im tryin to get one around 70-90 bucks and sell my 350 to my friend for 150
so i can do that and get 60 bucks in my pocket.
but who knows
I got the original P-2, the .35 micron, it runs at 300mhz, although I did manage to overclock a little, It was not stable, I later bought a 333A celeron. I tried it at several settings: 100x3.5/100x4/4.5x75 the most stable I got was 100x3.5, perhapse my stuff does not like the 75mhz bus...Unreal did not like 350 much, though, the loop crashed after like 30mins. I dropped it back down to 300mhz, although I did improve performance using 100x3, I am not so desperate for 50mhz as to risk damaging equipment, and risk random crashes.
Hey Cobain....try setting the FSB on the Celeron to 66 and upping the multiplier. You should be able to go up to about 6.5 or 7.0
How did you up the multiplier on a 333a?

Isn't the multiplier locked on all recent Intel processors? Including the Celerons?
Yeah, the celeron is supposed to be multiplier locked... the PII 333 isn't though...
A few things...it is a P-2, not aa celeron, if it was a celeron it would be .25 micron. Second, the older P-2 CPUs are sub-locked, you can set the multiplier for anything under the normal.

Well, I have a new P2 333 running at 500 bacause the only multiplier it would work with is 5! It most definitely is Multiplier locked.
Maybe the first P2 333 wasn't multiplier locked, but its cache design is also different (it wont do 4G ram caching like the later ones).
How successful you're in OCing depends on your choice of components and sensible cooling.
The ideal situation is to be able to OC the CPU without OCing the rest of the components in the PC. This means running the MotherBoard at speeds of 66Mhz and 100Mhz. This garentees all you other components will work.
As Celeron 300a is hard to come by these days you will have to make sure all you Components can handle 75Mhz or 83Mhz FSBs.
Use IBM HDs, PC100 Dimms, Voodoo2 Cards.
Avoid Maxtor HDs, 66Mhz SDRAM, Voodoo3 (at the moment).
In regards to the P2 333, the SL2KA and the SL2QF have multipliers 2-5.5 enabled, and the SL2WY and SL2TV are locked. Correct me if I'm wrong here.
