"What was the first CPU you o/c'ed
mine was a 486 sx25 that went to 33 with no fan lol that was fast way back when
300a/450 who hasn't
and long before the pc's i had a A1200 with 030 board sort of o/cing
and a snes which ahd the clock altered (so i was told games seemed to run faster)

P2-350@466 Now I've got a Celeron 466@581.
A Compaq 486 from a DX250mhz to DX266mhz.Although that was my first pc oc. I did play around with the an Apple IIc back in the 80s and did get it running a bit smoother than it did out of the box.
I had an 8086-1 (-1 for math co-cpu) in the mid-80's from a company that specialized in unusual hardware designs. They implemented their own clocking scheme, and allowed for turbo operation of the old 8086 4.77mhz cpu. At turbo it clocked 10mhz, a speed increase of over 2x!

I think I may be one of the few, that started with a performance machine! My one and almost only overclock is a P III 500 @ 667.

Amd K6-2 400@450 tried 500 for days but with no success.I'm working on an Athlon 750 soon.I'm drooling thinking about it.
Pentium 200MMX, to 250MHz, stable for 2 months so i tried for 292MHz, stable for a few days, but decided to bring it down due to heat.
1st - Intel 486DX2/66mhz overclocked to 80mhz.
2nd - AMD 486DX4/100mhz overclocked to 120mhz.
3rd - AMD K6/166mhz overclocked to 225/233mhz.
After those eveything kinda becomes a blur...I just know I started applying the theory of overclocking to EVERYTHING; electric guitars, amps, r/c cars, cordless power tools, toasters, whatever.
(btw, I've lost track of the DX4, but I know for a fact that the DX2@80mhz and the K6@225mhz are both still kickin' and getting used on a daily basis.)
My first overclock was an 8088 from 4.77Mhz to 12Mhz. Replacing the crystal on an IBM PC motherboard was fun, let me tell ya. That chip got replaced by an NEC V20 10Mhz running at the same 12Mhz. Blazing speed for playing all those heavy duty games like PC-MAN, Starflight, and Temple of Apshai.
Cyrix 250Mhz (366pr) to 285Mhz it didn't like that toomuch so I got an AMD K6-2 400 and haave it at 475.
1st : p200mmx@225
2nd : cel333@416
3rd : p3-550(katmai)@616
I also had a p133 which I later found out was a remarked p120. does that count as overclocking?
8088 4.77Mhz @ 12Mhz (those crystals...)
