How do I overclock a Celeron 733mHz PGA370?

I have an old computer and I'm too poor to get a new one. My motherboard doesn't have any jumpers to set speeds for my Intel Celeron PGA370. I want to overclock it to the maximum speed that it goes. Is there some way I can overclock the processor using a Windows program?

Processor:
Celeron PGA370 733mHz

Computer Model:
HP Pavilion 6746C

    Geardawg again. Response to rtahn.

    I have a PhoenixBIOS chip and it doesn't show anything like that. There are no jumpers on the board. I could get a new computer, but I'm poor as a homeless person (not really, LOL).

    There's is no progam for windows I could use this overclock it?

I have a hp 6730 ,originally a celeron 600mhz... which currently runs at 1.1 gig ,i used a 733 celeron and a linlin adapter . the lin lin is jumpered to let the clock speed go to 100 mhz.. . the only reason it can be overclocked is "the chipset.."it controls the max speed .and the 810 or 815 will max out ... 733/ 66=11 x 100= 1.1gig 733 x 11=800.. but it may go higher .. this computer is a hp6730 with a 733 celeron and a 256 and 128 meg pc 133 memory ... i had to tinker with it for a while the lin lin jumpers "voltage" are critical .as is the placement of the memory ,, go slowly first the overclocking then the mem location..

You can only overclock your computer if it has ATAPI BIOS. So get into BIOS upon bootup and if you have ATAPI then it will say it across the top. It will also have a section for the CPU with the current speed and an option to change it.

I have pentinum4 intel(R) celeron processor 1.3 GHZ processor. I want to increase the speed of my processor without any hardware change. I have 40 GB HD & 512MB with windows XP RAM.plz help


you cannot change the speed of your processor unless your processor supports overclocking. however your processor does not support that.

if your computer is running slow try upgrading the RAM to 1GB.
also check to see whether you have unwanted applications running in the background

Overclock


I do not condone overclocking!

You can try upgrading your bios to the latest version. It may let you change the CPU settings.

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Fi [...] &strOSs=38

Intel boards are usually "locked" (BIOS), and are difficult if not impossible to overclock.

I DO NOT CONDONE OVERCLOCKING. IT CAN RUIN,TRASH, BREAK FOREVER, MAKE CEASE TO FUNCTION, if something goes wrong, not yelling at you just want to make sure you know what you are trying toget into.
But...They do sell boards designed for that purpose, I think you can get the board you have w/CPU for under $100. Look for a different board if you are serious about it.

CRITICAL TEMPERATURE


Hi there
The processor will become critical at around 49c - 54c, but that shouldn't matter.
If you are wanting to overclock it you should be looking at more cooling for the system, a bigger fan and heat sync for example.
also set a fail-safe in the bios for the system to shut down near critical temperature.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Overclock on Celeron D331 2.66GHz 256K


I think there are too many problems with overclocking I would look at a programs to do this for you ONE is RED STORM and yes you do need to put extra fans in I had three Also I found the computer which has died does not last as long I would look at increasing your memory to at least 1Gb and you will notice a remarkable difference.

Sounds like your heating element has burned out in your dryer, you could have it replaced. It may just be time to get a new dryer.

I hope this helps,

Who to overclocke my motherboard'z FSB or my processor?


Hello.
It is not save for your system making it work faster by overclocking it.
Some times it works fine just using the right cooling methods, but some times its leads to system freezes, crashes and even to permanent processor damage.
So i advice you to keep that in mind.

If you want to proceed anyway.
- In newest computers you will find an option to set the processor speed to automatic( system recognize the cpu speed) or manually, in the last one you hve to set the RATIO( Processor speed divided by FSB speed), this means:
- The FSB of your P3 Motherbord (133 Mhz) x 7.5(ratio)= 1Ghz
- In older motherboards the speed option is set using jumpers
configuration in the Board, inthat case you will have to use the motherboard manual( some boards have printed tables) to show you the config.
Note: if your motherboard doesn't show you the RATIO you need is because it doesn't support that speed.

Good look.

I accidentally changed my CPU clok frequency from 100 to 250 and now my computer won't boot?


Ok I realize this is old and you may have given up by now or gotten it figured out, but I'm gonna try to help even with that being said, first of all I just recently had the same problem, this is a sure fire way to fix your issue,
step one, open up your computer so that you have access to the motherboard,
step two, find the system battery.
step three, near the battery there should be a jumper, this will be a little plastic piece with metal connectors inside it, it should be slid onto two pins out of three available, move it over one space meaning if its on the left and middle move it to the right pin and middle pin, the three pin pole should say cmos right by it, or clear cmos.
step four remove system battery, no need to worry this is just the memory for the cmos chip and it will revert it back to when the board was new, you can change the settings in your bios program back to what they were when it last worked,
step five, making sure that your power cord is not hooked up to the computer in the back, (no power to computer) press and release your power button a few times, (this will drain the capacitors stored power)
step six, walk away for about 20 minutes, just to make sure that clearing of cmos was a success,
step seven, replace cmos battery.
step eight, move jumper back to original possition.
step nine apply power to the computer and boot up should be operatioinal again, you can then go back into your bios setting and change as wanted, however I would only overclock a little at a time as boards will only handle so much overclocking before they will freeze up, i would not go more than 200 mine froze at 200 so you may not even want to go there, Hope this helps.......

Upgrade


As your processor is very old, to buy an upgrade would be more expensive than buying a new computer. There are not many of the socket 370 type processors around, if at all. Your motherboard will not drive any of the newer processors.

How can I overclock my 166mhz classic computer?


Overclocking is not really recommended to be done by normal users. For overclocking your computer, you should have extensive knowledge of the hardware of your computer.

Overclocking may result in a totally non-working computer, burnt up Processor and motherboard and the likes. Also, overclocking results in heating problems, so you need to have made the arrangements for taking care of this heat issue.

Basically overclocking means increasing the Clock Speed of your comuter. Suppose I say that I have a Pentium 4 - 2.4GHz computer, the 2.4GHz part is the clock speed, which is increase in overclocking. Surely the computers with higher clock speeds work faster but that comes at a price. A small mistake on your part and your computer is no more working.

There are various Forums and sites on the internet that discuss Overclocking and its intricacies in greater detail.
Here's a pointer:

PS: Search google for "overclocking" and you should get a lotta links to work with.
