    Dorset where else eh?
    once had a P11 300 that was an awsome overclocker
    Bought it new installed it into a new motherboard and then set the jumpers so it ran at
    450Mhz used it at that speed for over 2 years then getto'ed extra cooling fans ( one each side of the standard fan) to make a total of 3 fans.
    then i upped the speed to see how high i could get it
    That damm thing run rock steady at 650Mhz for over a year
    when it was time to upgrade i down clocked it to 550Mhz and gave the board /mem/cpu to a good friend.
    He still has this set up running as his daughters pc (at 550Mhz)

    That was my second serious over clock first was a 486 66Mhz DX2 (got that to 100Mhz)

    Ah those were the days when you could get massive100%+ overclock on air
    These days your lucky if you can get a 25% overclock with water

    my 1st OC was a 486DX 33mhz (my 1st win98 build :eek: since my 386 was a win3.1 build :D )

    i was clueless but i checked some hardware freaks BBS at the time (cant remember wich tho :eek: ) set some jumper and got it to 66mhz then got random shutdown and pretty much figured ou that the fanless heatsink werent enough, so i dismantled my old 386 build PSU and retrieved the 50mm fan that was in :roll: and used it to cool off the chip:p


    hummmm i have a HP SSF DC7700 (or something like that) i salvaged from the way to the dump at my job... it has a 6300 inside nyark nayahaha ... oh wait ... crap SSF HP mobo ... nevermind xD

    i've found some good auction on Ebay but AS I ALLWAYS SAY INTERNATIONAL TEND TO SCREW ME!

    i cant have a paypal account and if they accept a payement via Efinance with a IBAN its all good but... cause there is a butt (double T intended for funny moment ,... or not) only those with a insane price (way overrated) accept it and other : paypal only...

    murphy i like you but could you let me go and stop screwing all i try to do....

    my Athlon retro build running atm is on a MSI KT6V400 with a Athlon XP barton 2200+ with a Sapphire Radeon X800GT on win xp pro

    im searching a Slot A not a Socket A :) but thanks for the thought ;)

    indeed new zealand > switzerland post rate could be overkill :) thats why i say "international delivery allways screws one side or the other" ahah i found some nice Slot A board on Ebay but the post rate double or triple the price :eek: maybe the one i found on UK would be the cheapest, still "paypal only" i might contact the seller and ask if a international bank transfer via IBAN is possible... in switzerland post account hav a IBAN and authorize worldwide transaction (in and out) and less taxes than bank direct transfer or paypal

    I know it's not really hardware, but I just found a bunch of floppy disks in a commode (what I was about to drop out because of a community cleanup). They probably spent the last 15 years there. Here are some of them :toast:

    I've got here an ASRock 865pe board...kind of nostalgic, and very rare. I included it installed with DDR400 and a 7800GS. Also a 6600GT, 6800GT, and a 933Mhz PIII. Am I in?! :cool:

    Thank you stinger! I believe I've got an old PIII Via board stored away, along with one of the 1.13Ghz PIII's. I think that was the highest clocked III if I'm not mistaken. I'll post pics when I dig them out.
