    Yes RDR - I know you weren't criticising it - but our college has several Duron 750 machines running with the AK33, as it is cheap, fast (for a KT133) and stable. Excellent OEM board ;)

    I'd rather spring the money for a GHz Athlon for a server or a secondary PC and leave it at that.

    Duron's are great for low cost, and those who aren't interested in heavy gaming or hardcore computing.

    A long list of overclocks:
    Cyrix pr200 (150Mhz - 2*75 up to 187.5Mhz - 2.5*75)
    Cyrix PR300 (250Mhz 3*83 up to 266Mhz 4*66) really hot
    Celeron 366 @ 550
    Duron 600 @ 900
    Athlon 900 @ 1066
    Athlon 1200 @ 1403 (133.64*10.5) - just gave it to the dorta - would boot at 1470 (133.64*11)
    Athlon 1333 @ 1604 (133.64*12) - would boot at 1737 (133.64*13) but crashed in Win or DOS

    No luck with fsb overclocks at higher multipliers on the Athlons....turned out to be a sus drive that wouldn't tolerate fsb increases.

    retired now for a while....running a nice and QUIET duron 1000....waiting



    PS what happened to the chips???
    both Cyrix chips died quickly
    the celery is still going at 413
    the Duron is still going at 900
    the TB900 is around at 990 still
    the 1200 won't take voltage increases but will run at 1403 at standard v
    the 1333 is still strong as an ox but #2son runs it at stock only now the fun is over..
    The older I get...the better I was

    In my experience, AMD rules in overclocking. The highest I've been able to hit with an intel chip was 500MHz off a 400MHz PPGA Celeron. My Duron 800 was run as high as 1074MHz stable. I've got my 1.4GHz T-bird hitting 1.58GHz right now.

    Both AMD and Intel have had "exceptional" overclocking chips. For instance, the Celeron "A" 300MHz was almost guaranteed to hit 450MHz with only a simple voltage increase. Ditto the Duron 600MHz, many hit 1GHz without too much trouble. So they come and go in stages - I wouldn't stick my neck out and say that one vendor's CPUs are more overclockable than the other's ;)

    What Albinus said is very true as atm the ball is back in Intel's court with their P4 1.6A CPU as most are reporting between 2.2-2.4GHz which by today's standards is a very good increase. ;)

    Yeah, I've been reading about that.
    In my experience, I've probably not gotten the best OC'ing chips from Intel. I tried to get a couple of 700E's, but ended up with the 800EB's (for my VP6).

    my efforts:

    pent 75 to 90 (my dad went sick when i showed him :D )
    cyrix 200@266 (runs but locks up under HEAVY load, 233 is happy)
    PIII-450@554 (i so wanted 600, but i think the board was holding it back)
    Duron 600@1004 (now sits happily at 933, its a blue core)
    Athy 1GHz to 1170 or somefin...was just playing
    yet to OC my new P4 1.6 (not A :( )

    system states: no deaths as yet, athy is chipped to buggery tho, still worx ;)

    Off memory:

    Cyrix 150 - 200 (I was very pumped that day :D )
    Celeron 333a - 550MHz (Still I found that impressive)
    Pentium 3 450MHz - 600MHz (So so)
    Pentium 3 800MHz - 1000MHz
    Pentium 4 1.3GHz - 1.7GHz
    Pentium 4 1.6A - 2.4GHz
    AMD Athlon 1GHz to 1.33GHz (several times)
    AMD Athlon 1.33GHz to 1.4GHz (several times)

    :)
