CPU Overclocking

At one of the great web hardware guide's I've learned that overclocking an Intel Pentium 166 MMX should be to run it at

2.5 x 83 MHz

This doesn't work on my system, probably caused by to slow RAM's

Second suggestion is 2x83

and third

2.5 x 75

Is it then really better to run the CPU with 2x83 than 2.5x75?

Counting on it the 2.5x75 should be faster... or not?

Greetings
Joergen Astroem

PS.
I'm using the ASUS P/I-P55T2P4 (Rev 3.1) Motherboard

It depends what you are doing, I prefer a faster bus speed. Check out the following url for the full story

Well Steve

What I'm doing?

A lot of graphics and sound editing, and off course Internetting.

Why do you consider the higher bus speed to better instead of running the 166 at aprox 187 MHz?

Yeah, I would go for the faster bus speed. If you have a system with a 166 processor then I guess you dont have much RAM (I may be wrong) so the files you are dealing with will be quite large and your machine will probably be doing quite a lot of disk caching, if this is the case then the bottleneck is the time it takes to get the info into the processor, from RAM or HDD; opting for a higher bus speed will improve matters. However, if you are running a lot of filters in photoshop or something like that then go for the higher processor speed.

Hope this helps

Hi again

Well I have 48 MB RAM, and I do quite some filtering in Photo Shop as well as SoundPlugins in WaveLab. So reffering to your answer the best way should probably be to leave as it is with 2.5 x 75 MHz?

Thank you
