View Full Version : 478 pin processors can't even overclock?

I had a sucky PC & its working on a 478 pin processor..the motherboard supported overclocking & the MB even provided a overclocking CD.I used it of course since my CPU is stable(at a temp of 20degrees coz of my 6000rpm fan), but after overclocking for 20% my speed didn't even increase by 1MHZ...dunno wads happening..can ani1 explain?
Im using a intel P4 CPU 2.6GHZ (northwood) 478pin processor

Don't bother with OCing a Pentium 4 . It wont do much and also , I dont know any single core CPUs that OC well .

Umm... You may want to check your facts there.
A Pentium 4 Cedar Mill (65nm, stock 3.6Ghz) has been clocked up to 8.1Ghz on liquid nitrogen. Pentium 4's that have all that heat removed overclock very well.
And what about the classic overclocker? That Pentium II based celeron (266A was it?) which overclocked around 40%, single core no doubt.
Problem with that setup is almost certainly the motherboard.

I mean , you can increase the clock speed , but it wont affect performance much , that's what I meant about it not being a good overclocker .
