Question about Compaq ( 277498-001) Motherboard
The truth is that I cannot give, not even an idea of how to set the jumpers. The way that the manifacturer gives orders to his employees is a well kept secret. The way that the jumpers are set is to give a very precise voltage to the CPU chip. Tha danger that everybody is worried about is that a vey small rise in the voltage, for instance going from 1.8 to 1.9 volts, may cause that much of an increase in the current through the chip that the temperature may increaseenough to destroy the chip. The voltage for the CPU chip is adjusted for a pre-set frequency and at that frequency the heat generated in the CPU chip is calculated to be dissipated through the heat sink, which may even have a blower. Increasing the frequency of a CPU than what the manufacturer intended is called "overclocking" and up until now it has the hobby of some amateurs, who experimented and actually have had good results. But look at the sequence: the voltage on the CPU is raised slowly, watching the temperature of the chip, not to exceed the point of no return. Once the heat sink is unable to maintain the safe temp., the system is dismantled and a new heat sink perhaps with a more efficient blower, will place the chip within its thermal limits. If your CPU has not burned out already ask the manufacturer of the mother board for information and get figures that will help you to increase the frequency and still, up to a point, avoid the destruction of the chip. As a point of information Compaq never has manufactured any mother boards. They specify them to their favorite supplier and he delivers the quantity they need. The same holds true with the mother company HP. Tell me if you are out of business with your computer and I can do an inquiry and there is the chance that we get some onfirmation. One alternative, not very cheap, is to buy a MB that has a provision for gaming and has adjustments and control of the heat dissipated by the CPU chip. I desire to help all I can that we can have your computer running, under the limitations said above.
