It is easy to overclock Pentium Celeron-D

  1. Nov 22, 2004 #1
    I just adjust the value of FSB in CMOS, up from the default 133MHz,
    I can overclock it to 2.61GHz.

    no worry,
    some motherboards allow you to overclock up to 3.8GHz.

    As long as you watch your temps, you'l be fine.

    Isn't there more to this than meets the eye because of timing issues? For instance, your video card may not be able to keep up with the mobo, causing a lockup or crash?

    yes but it all depends on what mother/board you have
    some overclock eazy
    others just don't work or work well
    it depends on if the mother/board can lock the vidio and pci rates
    and allow the fsb to be adjusted independantly
