Pentium 3 overclocking.

Postby Baoran » 2018-10-18 @ 17:46

If I were to overclock a P3 cpu, what kind of cooling I would need? For example 8x100Mhz cpu to 8x112Mhz or perhaps even 8x120Mhz?

Depends on the core and the airflow. But given we're talking Coppermine here, just any half-decent So370/SoA HSF. The advantage is that SoA is more readily available and designed for much more heat, but still backwards compatible with So370.

Thanks.
I know that I have more than enough retro computers built, but I have had this motherboard a while now tempting me to do something with it with that nice isa slot and all...
