that's for shure, overclocking in samll steps can realy
value up. Myself also O clock a bit.
Yes I also do not have the money to by every time a new...
from time to time this happends. but instead of putting away
the old and ugly one, give him a new chance as a server, addional crunsher
and so on.
may be some 486, those I realy put away realy to slow
sorry just 1 fan for 1 cpu, no cases, only 2 cables,
power and network
ok the quicker intel (some)? have cases and 2 fan 3 with this on the powersuplies
Just in the past day had a stability problem with an old amd 1400
cpus runs stable till 1480 (in wintertime), now it's sommertime I have to reduce the speed to 1400. I was not satisfied so I returned to go to 1440 1420
the system runs fine about 48 hours, the hangs, I spend another time for...
Now in Summer this system will be kept by 1400 and it can run as a stone.
In that time when this old amd was stopped due failure he was not crunching, I lost more time as when I didn't touch it..
In reasonable steps I also like to know what's possible to get from,
one day you will know the limit. stay a litte more down and
the cpu will run in a week , in a year, in 5 years..
Overclocking the 2nd
one day I changed on a AMD 2100 from newer memory to older memory, I needed elsewhere. The motherboard povided both sockets.
the system did normaly about 6 to 7 WUs a day (classic seti WUs)
afther changing the memory, Oh what a speed, it crunshed 12 Wus in 1 hour
wow. I realized this system was, due to the cpu and memory timing settings
hopeless overclocked, the bave was not quick, he simply dropped the calculation
for me and my ego great, for the sience garbage.
the experience was good for being done
now I'am a very old man and enjoy the speed and be lucky not to calculate the WUs with a pocket calculator or by hand..
On ebay may be there are more cheapier offers, used and brandnew
