Yeah, I have an extra BP6 and 3 Celery 366's... Gonna water cool those & see how fast they can get. I had them just over 600 with air cooling. :) If I burn one or two, oh well... got an extra.

with the new cheap CPU's? they aint that cheap. when the new carbonbased CPU's come out and they'er clocking 5Ghz and higher(maybe more like 20 Ghz) what difference will the little 200 Mhz we can squeeze out of an anchant 1400 make? till then lets do it.

since overclocking is dead is the concept here, here is a challenge to you elitist that can overclock a toaster. take something cheap like a celery 600 and wire each pin to the socket so that the cpu is at least 18inches away from the mobo, then put the cpu in a liquid nitrogen container that is sealed (for your protection, hehe) and see how high you can run the sucker. my bet is pretty high maybe even 3x for a short period of time. any takers?


Did anyone do this?

Nah you want a challenge, Try this one.

  Find an old 486 and see just how far it will go. I am going to try this starting tomorrow provided the Comp my friend found is actually a 486.

  I will keep you posted and if anybody knows the best way to tweak out an old dinosaur like this let me know.

  I did this once before with an AMD 486 DX4 100Mhz using a 16MB Drive Cache Controller, A 16 MB Promise Video Card. And an AWE 32 Soundblaster.

 This thing ran faster than a Pentium 100
