Hi all,

Am wanting to have a go at overclocking my P3-600. I have no idea how far i can push it and if the fheatsink / fan conbination that came with the processor (a slot 1 with standard fan) will be ok to deal with the overclocking...

I know the basic 'how' i just need some recommendations and anyones past experience dealing with a slot1 P3-600.

I have no direct experience with overclocking slot 1 CPU's so I'm not sure how far it will go. Same with the heatsink/fan. My suggestion would be to start out in very small increments on the FSB and slowly work them up just a couple MHz at a time, till the system becomes either unstable or too hot. Check your temps constantly, and you should be ok. Once you've gotten to a point of instability, back it off a little and see if it will stay stable for you for a couple of days. 8)

Thx for the advice, the only problem is that for some reason this m/board doesn't seem to have temp monitoring. I think i might take it up one level and leave it at that...

I've tried most of the popular tools I can find. I've looked at the Jetway site and there is no mention of a temp monitor / health program for my board :(

:idea: possible to get temps in bios? sandra will list temps in 'mainboard info'. perhaps possible to add heat sensor to heatsink- perhaps directron has something:

http://www.directron.com/

["Provide extra " three-wire" fans connectors Y2K Compliant "- i think this implies that the third sensing wire will show temps/ and or fan speed in bios.

[i haven't used this, but might have found something, seems like for serious overclocking monitoring (worth the $$$?!?)]:
