    I'm quite new at this stuff and really need to know if my HP PAVILION xt948 is overclockable. Taking in perspective that nearly "anything" is overclockable these days; i still can't figure out a simple way to do it. My HP xt948 is a 1.6G, so i'm hoping that i could perhaps maybe bump that sh!t up to...oh...let's say; 1.8G? Or better yet 2.0G? If anyone can help than please get me back. I'm sick and tired of slow performance - mainly due to the fact that HP SUCKS!! - and desperatly need your [anyones] advice! I was, however, capable of changing the 'multiplier setting' from x8 to a wopping x24!! However, with little performance boost and a couple of extremely noticeable glitches i think i need something more...stable - yet something that won't melt my chip in under .003secs. And one more thing. I have 256 of Cache mem, is there a way to set my Cache memory to 512kb? Thankx for any help you can get me back on...appreciate it! peace2:

    I'm sorry but name brand PC's are built so that there are no overclockin' abilities at all now just to severally cut down on support or warranty claims. :(
    Best to think about building a complete new system to suit what you want to do and use ya old one as a backup or sell it to fund the new one. : peace2:

    Wiggo,

    how do you expect someone to sell an old computer? You can't! My friends and i have tried and it does not work. No one can make any money selling old, old computers muchless refunding the old one. The only people that do that are mom-and-pop computer shops that can get away with it because people who go to those places are often enough to be suckers.

    That's why I suggest keepin' them as backups 1st (I never get rid of them) but I will make fair offers for them as trade in's on new systems because if someone else can't make use of them I certainly can (but let's face it, a PC is obsolete as soon as it leaves the store anyway). : peace2:

    wiggo,

    Yeah you are right about the backup computer. The system I am using right now, my old one, will be used as a backup system in case my new one goes down. It is an old one though. 650 Megahertz is the speed.

    A question for you. How do you join your SETI team if I wanted to join? Or can i even join? What do I have to do?
