    Actually, I'd say basketball is possibly more popular in baseball, but Football (or Soccer, as they call it everywhere else) is the main sport in the States. I catch an NBA game occasionally, but I don't really follow it.

    If the video card takes up too much power, then I'd suggest getting a new PSU for it. An Athlon a bit above 1GHz with a 9600XT can make a decent gaming system.

    Wow, I didn't realize that the motherboard didn't have FSB adjustments. That's got to make things hard.

    My motherboard is Biostar M7NCD Pro, and Biostar is known for making low-quality motherboards. I actually got it for free, essentially, and was using it with my Athlon XP 2400 Mobile. I figured out that it wouldn't run dual channel, and that it wasn't stable when I overclocked it more than just a little, so I replaced it with an Abit NF7-S v. 2. I figured it wasn't totally useless, and I had a spare PSU, so I went and got a used hard drive, 9600XT, case, and traded the PSU that came with case for an Athlon 1GHz Thunderbird. So far it's fine, but I don't plan on even trying dual channel, and I really do need to fix that heat problem. Even with the Biostar motherboard, I think I'lll be able to get a good 1.3-1.5GHz out of this thing.

    Biostar doesn't have much business in China. Abit NF7 was the hottest mobo here in K7 age.

    Yawg... I just thought about modding a mendocino celeron's multi. The CPU's pins have their top exposed on the top of the package making it easy to solder or pencil-connect them. Does mendocino set its multi by pin-to-ground configuration? If it is, do you know the pattern? There's little info on overclocking intel CPUs. Most are about AMD. Where can I find detailed pin-configuration of Intel CPU for multi and vcore?

    Yeah, the NF7 was big everywhere. It's basically the best socket A OCing motherboard ever made.

    I'm not sure, but I don't think you'll be able to overclock that processor by using the multiplier. From what I've found online, back in the day it was a popular CPU because you could simply bump the FSB up to 100 from 66.

    Here are some of the relevant links I found:
    http://www.heise.de/ct/english/98/18/020/
    http://www.thg.ru/cpu/19980824/print.html
    http://www.overclockers.com/articles03/index.asp

    Honestly though, I can't say I'd be bothered with overclocking it. It might run a pre-1.6 version of Counterstrike, and it could run Windows 98 and be used for web browsing and word processing, but that's about it.

    I would say mendocino can't even get CS running well. I have a mendocino 433MHz which doesn't work at 100FSB for its high multi. And I'm just curious about the possibility of modding it. AMD publishs all the datasheet on their website while intel doesn't. There should be someone that has interpreted intel CPUs and I'm just interested to read about it.

    Intel do have the pinouts published (though it does take some searching of their site to find them) but Intel lock the multiplier internally within cores so there is no way possible of unlocking it otherwise there'd more published on that process than what there already is on certain AMD processors.

    Now I see. Thanks for your reply wayout.
