Default What's your best overclock?

Just wondering what everyone's most successful overclock was.


I'm a newbie to overclocking, so I started with something small...

Had a Pentium II 333MHz Deuchetes Slot 1, with 66MHz FSB, 5x multiplier.

I overclocked the FSB to 100MHz with the tape trick on one of the processor pins. It now runs at 500MHz, stable with an 80mm fan stuck to it.

I also overclocked the S3VirgeDx on the same system, but I can't remeber the before and after clock speeds.

See signature. Stock heatsink and fan. Hottest it ever got was 44C while I was encoding. Idles at 30-32C depending on the ambient temperature in my room.

How did you get that high? I hit 2.6 and it wouldn't boot.

My highest that I ever got was 3.015GHz. That wasn't stable at all. The highest stable clock that I'm able to achieve at the moment is 2.84GHz due to cheap value ram.
