    MS-6529 : omg:

    The main reason that ya get gettin' told, "willys suck for o/c", is that most of the socket 423 mobo's that supported them at the time weren't the best at overclockin' and only a 10-15% overclock was common amongst them.

    If you had a Northwood 1.6, that would be a whole different story as those shoot past 3Ghz.....

    Deer, in a nut shell, we williamette CPU holders got shafted :( . The 0.18 micron processes does not allow for a good overclock, that's case in point. Even my being a socket 478, I still probably couldnt get this past 2, maybe 2.1 with a GREAT mobo, simply because its maxed out almost, and the CPU just cant take it. Northwoods are awesome o/cers because that have a 0.13 micron manufacturing processes. That makes quite the difference when it comes to o/cing. Be happy with your 1.7 and look into getting a new comp if you want more speed. Sry mate, : peace2: Mista K6
