Celeron 500, any sugestions?
I just got the 500 celeron with the Abit BE6 mobo and I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for maybe a possible overclock. Of course allowing burn time. My system has the rage fury, sblive. 128 pc 100 ram, a heatsink specified for 600mhz with two fans on it. My case temperature after playing games for an hour is 29C and cpu is 35c.
you should have no probs at 75 fsb which would be 562 mhz.
Thanx bdog for the useful info. With this jumperless mobo I thought what the heck give it a try. And entered in the values and was I in for a surprized when it booted and has been very stable for about 2 hours of constant games. Not one crash. Case temp. is 30c and the cpu is 38. Do you know if a fsb of 83 is possible, if so would I have to increase my voltage.(Don't really care for that)
Check to see if your board supports 78 & 81 fsb. 83 fsb would be real tough without a voltage increase. I've got one that will do
email@example.com 78 fsb
firstname.lastname@example.org 81 fsb
email@example.com 83 fsb
( it did take 2.2 before the FDP32 fan h/s)
As long as you have good cooling on that chip voltage up to 2.3 should be ok.Sounds to me like you've got one that will do 607 if you have the 81fsb setting & maybe even 625 if your hard drive can take it Let us know how you make out [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
Toro 45, thanx. Do you know the temp. your running at with a fsb of 83? I am pretty sure my board next setting is 83 but i will check. How stable are you at 83?
I ran my celeron 400 at 83 fsb for a long time with no probs, but be careful. 83 fsb puts your pci devices way out of spec and has caused many a hard drive to be corrupted.
Unfortunately I don't have cpu temp on my board. The case temp is right around 30c when gaming depends on room temp. I would estimate right around 9c(83fsb) over room temp. When not overclocked it runs about 5c-6c over room temp.
Stability wise it's rock solid at 625 any games or benchmrks, no problem. Sounds like your cooling is good enough, I vote for crankin it up [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img] [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img] Let me know what kinda of temps you end up if you make it, especially the cpu temp.
Thanx Toro, I was wondering what kind of hard drive you have. I don't think mine can handle it. When I upped the voltage and set for 83, it would boot all the way until my desktop was supposed to appear. And then nothing. I haven't changed any settings for my hard drive though. So maybe if I changed those settings it would work, however I don't know what settings to change the hard drive to. I'm going to buy a ibm deskstar 7200 rpm hard drive shortly, do think that would work?
I hear if you change the hard drive setting to pio mode 4 that will help when runninig at 83fsb.Thinking that it would slow things down by doing this, I switched mine over & ran a few tests. The difference was not really all that noticible.The setting is in your bios.
I'm using a Western Digital 13.6, 5400rpm.The IBM 7200 rpm drives are a great choice for overclocking( I had to flip a coin between the two). I chose the W.D. thinking it would be a little quieter,I think there about the same.
when you cranked up your voltage did you take it up to 2.3volts? If not thats all you need to get it stable. Just so you know, for now I've only found one other person on the internet with a C500 that will do 625, that was with some Vaporchill product. I think as more people buy them we'll start seeing more C625's.
Chech this out 625mhz of whoop *** on a P3 500 & an AMD 500 Sandra benchmark [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img] http://www.overclockingextreme.com/praise.htm mines the fourth system down. Good Luck

Toro, checked out that site, good stuff man.
That's nuts. Now tell me, how long did you burn it in for? I am pretty sure I have to burn mine in for a bit. I tried 2.3 and there wasn't any difference. Tried all the hard drive settings too. My hard drive is a fujitsu 5600rpm 8.45 gig. I think once my chip burns for a bit and I get that ibm 7200 rpm harddrivek, I will have a good chance of taking it up to 83.
The problem with your sytem crashing is most likely related to your Rage Fury. They do not like seriuously out of spec AGP speeds. It was deisgned to run at 66mz, and very few make it to 83. If you have an option to change the AGP ratio, set it to 2/3's. This might solve your prob.

Good point robrich, never thought about that but I'm pretty sure my hard drive won't handle it. Soon as I changed it to 2/3, I started to recieve drive errors. So by the time I get my new harddrive I should have burned this chip in and hopefully it will go up.
