    hi, I'm trying to overclock my intel pentium 2 233

    64mb ram

    asus P2L97 agp mobo


    the system is almost useless now, can't even run some emulators

    but i have never over clocked before.

    i tried going into bios but there r no settings that i can change

    speed. so i thought i probably have to go into the system and

    change the jumpers. or is there another way?

    and anyone know what is a safe speed and a realistic speed that

    i can get the 233 to?

    hmmmm....To be honest i wudn't even bother trying to overclock and just buy a new mobo n CPU, u cud pick up a Duron + mobo cheaply, even Althon XPs systems arn't that expensive.

    no cause if i can get some out of this i'll wait a little longer and then buy, which i pay the same amount and get even more power


    but i never used durons before, i tried intels and athlons

    how much cheaper do u think the durons r?

    and do they suck? i'm willing to spend $200, what do u think i can get?

    I have a Duron and its OK, its a cut down Athlon basically. I wud try a site like www.ebay.com, gets some parts second hand. Then u cud probally get an Athlon 1.1Ghz, Mobo + some more RAM. Wot graphics card do you have by the way?

    You could try and get the hold of SoftFSB which will allow you to play around with the fsb settings (multiplier locked) from within windows.........some of the older mobos will allow you to adjust the fsb from 66 to75 and 83....some will also allow intermitant settings as well.....from memory, the Asus mobos were pretty good in this regard......good luck
    The older I get...the better I was

    yeesh! get a new vid card...wait, you prolly don't have an agp slot, sounds like time for a serious upgrade!...and unless you got a realy case, i'd start saving for a whole new system :lips: :lips: :lips:

    Yer if u only got a Vodoo, thats probally y u cant tun most emulators, dont bother wid an upgrade do what daedalus said and save for a completly new system. You could get a whole system for about 500 UK (wudn't a beast but wud probally run ur emulators ;).

    Well then get a budget mobo, a Duron 900mhz, and a Hercules 4500 thats pretty much a budget upgrade, and it shud take care of your emulators..unless ur playin N64 emulators......then god help you lol.
