can someone help me overclock my AMD athlon XP 1700+ and i have no temp sensore there
tell us a little more.. bios options.. fsb speeds.. memory type/speed
how do you find out
basic compaq bios options, 512MB DDR ram pc2100, and i dont konw what fsb speed is but my cpu is clocked at 1.47 GHz
o and its a socket A
If u have a nvidia nforce-mainboard, use NTUNE to overclock and to set the multiplier.
it's a compaq
okay download sisoft sandra.. it will tell u what things are..
so far things aint looking good.. unless u are lucky if your bios dosnt give u the options nothing can be done.. unless the ntune thing work out..
the make of motherboard is compaq, and the model is 07D0h
these oem boxes were not designed to overclock.. simply to run things at the speeds they come set at out of the box..
an overclocking mother board comes with the ability to alter things such as fsb speeds and such.. your will not have these options..
unless some kind of software option run in windows is available i dont think u can clock it..
i would love to tweak my laptop but i cant.. the bottom line here is.. some systems u cannot overclock..
what u could probably do is bung a faster socket A chip in there.. they can be had quite cheaply.. u do have the slowest one there is.. u need to find out what is the fastes chip the bios will recognize.. if it will see a 3000+ fit one of those.. try and find the latest bios for your mobo.. see what chips it supports..
But if you buy a new mobo, it shouldnt be socket A; a 754board with Sempron 3400+ isnt so expensive,if you have more money, buy a 939 and a better processor.
