Topic: Anyone else into legacy OCing?   Go to last post

My overclocking habit goes back to the old Pentiums and the AMD K5...moving jumpers around to bump the bus speed and multiplier, good times.  I do wish I could have gotten that P4 to do more than POST at that speed.  I think it could have been stable enough to get a CPU-Z validation but like I said the board gave up on me.  I was working that Corsair RAM for all it was worth too lol

I love trying to get old hardware to do things it was never meant to do.  I got an old P4 Northwoods 2.4GHz chip over 4GHz with a TEC/water cooling bench setup before the board quit on me, I was going for the HWBOT.org record for that CPU but fell short.  I run an old Phenom 2/280x as my main system and I have a Phenom 9850/6950 system in the garage with a mild overclock on the CPU and GPU...someday I'll upgrade the main rig to an FX 8 core and send the Phenom 2 to the garage.

For anyone counting, that's 4GHz out of a 2.7GHz CPU - a 48% increase.  GPU is actually a 280x (shows up as a 7970 for obvious reasons), I've actually increased that to 1150MHz, that's on top of the 1080MHz OC provided by XFX - a total of 35% over the official core speed of 850MHz.  H100i on the CPU and H55 on the GPU with Ceramique paste.  The temp shown isn't right though, the CPU idles about 4-7 degrees above system temp and never exceeds 60 degrees C under load.

My old Phenom 2 x6 is looking for a new friend...this would do the trick.
