I'm thinking of building a budget pc for my younger brother. I want to make it as cheap as possible, so I'm considering overclocking. Has anyone here had experience overcklocking a Sempron 2400...or Celeron D 320 2.4GHz CPU? If so please give some details...mobo used...etc...I heard that since the celeron D is based on the prescott core, it has huge overclocking headroom...
Any feedback?
Thanx in advance.
Marco

Interesting situation...

In this case, I'm leaning towards the Celeron D. I dont know why, I guess I feel that it has a higher OC potential than a Sempron 2400+.

celeron w/ overclock still wont hold a light to stock sempy when priced within reason.

Good question... Normally, I'd say Sempron, but those Celeron D's have 256k of cache rather than the 128k that most Celeron's have. So, It may make for a good budget OC'er.

We're supposed to get a few of those soon. I'll see if I can OC 'em or not. They're going to be in those little Asus Barebones systems, and I don't know how well those OC, if at all.

Yeah, that would be cool. I didn't have a chance to really overclock the one I just made, coz I had to sell it. If you get some results, plz post.

Another quick question...when you overclock does the pc fail to boot, or restart...because it gets too hot? or because it doesnt have enought voltage? I always wondered...and what is a good amount to increse voltage by? Like the general rule of thumb of oc'ing is to increase the fsb by incrememts of 5MHz...should that be accompanied by an increase of .0x volts? Just wondered.
Thanx.
:D

1) Common symptoms include failure to boot, instability, blue screens, IRQ_NOT_EQUAL errors, restarts, and in some less common cases component damage.
2) Heat is a major factor and must be addressed in any OC'd system.
3) Lack of voltage can hinder overclocks. Keep in mind that as the voltage rises, so does the heat and risk of component damage.
4) Depends on the chip, but unless you're familiar with what should be expected and have experience OCing, you should be using the minimum increments allowable in your BIOS.
5) Voltages should only be increased if stability is an issue and you've narrowed it down to there. There is no general rule of thumb that correlates specific fsb increases to voltage increases.
