    Hey folks, since I pop my head in these forums every now and again, (I could say I'm a regular, but I lurk more than I post... heh) I wish to let you all know of my hugely overdue upgrade! I've been running Cel800, then dropped to 600E, then PIII 550E - yeah, taking backward steps...

    But anyhow, today I picked up a Cel900 cD0 stepping (SL5MQ) from Umart ($130 for anyone interested). Popped it into my system, cliped on the ThermoEngine (7000RPM) and fired it up straight away at 124Mhz FSB. Default 1.75V, runs like a charm. After I enjoy this speed for a while, maybe I'll try for a more aggressive overclock. Meanwhile... life is sweet in the gigahertz club. :D Long time coming, but here I am.

    Most I've managed is around 920 for my past Celeron 800.

    Has anyone else bought a Pentium lately? (I know we're a rare breed - everyone's onto AMDs these days) The std HSF that came with my chip is massive! All the other Intel HSFs I had were puny little units, this one has a big 60mm fan! The sink itself looks as tho it might pose clearance problems with capacitors around S-370 boards (I'm using slocket).

    Hmm... might cut up this sink and make me a few Ramsinks for my vid card.

    Good one Onyx :thumb:

    My friend has a Celeron 900 as well (not sure of the stepping), but has it running at 133x9 no problems at all (at default voltage). He's using an ASUS CUSL-2 board, with 512MB Apacer CAS-2 PC-133 SDRAM. It's a really nice little system

    And yes Intel have been bundling rather large heatsinks lately - my 1GHz Pentium III had the same problem, the heatsink was so large it wouldn't fit on my AOpen AX37 Plus motherboard - the capacitors got in the way. My 1.7GHz Pentium 4 came with a MASSIVE heatsink as well :D

    Good to hear the Intel freaks are still getting good overclocks ;)

    I've had a gawk at overclockers.com CPU database and it does seem like a number of people manage 1200 without too much difficulties (that's 133FSB). However beyond that required serious voltage bumps and fairly extreme cooling gear. I don't like the idea of 2.0V+ on a coppermine chip, and I don't have anything more than air cooling.

    I'll try for 1.2Ghz later, in the meantime my system hasn't been shut down yet. I've been 'burning it in' since I got it out of the box and first fired it up. Running Dnet's RC5 100% CPU load for going on 36hours now. Until Windows crash and I have to reboot, I ain't switching off just yet. Fingers crossed :)

    Water cooling maybe SileNceR??? Might be your next shot (if you can afford it that is) ;)
