    Re: No one overclocks anymore?

    I like todays oc'ing a lot better than the oldin days.

    While it was a challenge back then. It was a straight up pain in the arse at times.

    Overclocking is just more available to the everyday consumer nowadays. Don't count OC discussion out for the count though. Every new generation of products brings up new novelties & frustrations to work out.

    Re: No one overclocks anymore?

    I never got down and dirty with penciling and tape but I did have a Athlon XP 1700 tbred b 0310 @ 1467Mhz and oc'ed it to 2.1Ghz. It was a lot of fun doing the trail and error and conferring with people on here on how to get it higher. I can still remember that loud as hell 80mm 50cfm Sunon CPU fan I had haha. Never really got into GPU o/c'ing though.

    Mhz for Mhz the quad is faster, so if u clock a quad at 3.2 or 3.3Ghz it'll outperform a Duo at 3.5 or 3.6Ghz.

    AND run cooler if its 45nm.

    Re: No one overclocks anymore?

    I just found some of the Vcore mods resistors I used to solder on mobos, man that was scarry! One slip and the board was toast. Do it right and it was off to the races! I remember a Chaintech board was the first volt modded 266 board I got to run rock steady at 200 FSB, seems like a slug now.

    Re: No one overclocks anymore?

    My mom's rig is an OC'ed 3800 x2 1.8ghz s939 at 2.4ghz,
    My step dad's rig is a 5000+ BE 2.6ghz at 3.2ghz,
    My rig is a e8400 at 3.85ghz.
    All 3 rigs were mine at one point so I've done all the testing ...

    My sister is also using my old wincehester 3000+ 2.0ghz (that I was running at 2.35ghz) but its running stock now as its just slow no matter what lol

    I remember overclocking back to my old pentium 3 600mhz that I had runnning a 767mhz for benchmark haha ... but I really started to OC for 24/7 with a A64 2400+ xp that I cant remember the exact settings.

    Re: No one overclocks anymore?

    This is a fascinating disucssion. I've got all 3 of my systems in my sig OCed as high as they will go temperature (air) permitting. But I just got my first laptop, a Gateway with a c2d mobile 2.0GHz, 4 gig of ram, 250g WD hdd, a dvd burner, 2600 ATI mobile video card with 512 dedicated ram, and Vista Home Premium 64 bit, and I gotta tell ya, this puppy runs great (and it was a terrific deal at $635 US).

    Fast and quick, solid and reliable. So there is little if any incentive to OC it, not that that would be a good idea for a laptop, but as is, it's a fast machine. I love tweaking systems, building them, but this thing runs so well out of the box. It sort of rains on my enthusiast's parade, if you know what I mean. Yeah, it can't compete with my two c2d desktops in terms of gaming performance (though it's not bad with its dedicated 2600 ati card), but for all other tasks, it holds its own.

    that is a pretty good deal for those specs, wonder how the 2600 fairs with games though? would that be closer in performance to an 8600 or a 7600?

    it's amazing what kind of power you can get in laptops now,mine isn't even a year old yet and even after some upgrades it just matches up to that one and it was almost twice as much, and THAT was a deal when i got it.

    definitely never did any pencil tricks myself, of course back then i was more or less relying on the parents for spare parts, or spending a months wages at KFC for parts. even still, i don't think i'd be willing to do that to my hardware anymore.

    i like tweaking too, it's just that i've learned from past experiences by now, i no longer care to squeeze every last meaningless ounce of performance out of my system to shave a few fractions of a second off my super pie time. don't have the time much anymore either.

    Dude how can you say that,if you get a nice OC it makes a big diference.

    My old x2 3800 was a lot faster @ 2.7 then default 2.0

    Lets just say that Crysis was unplayable for me @ 2.0

    @ 2.7 it was much more playable

    poci, I think he meant squeezing another 50MHz, not just not overclocking.
