Hi,

I've got a Pentium 133 (not MMX) running on an ABIT IT5H Mainboard, controlled by SoftMenu. I was wondering whether it is possible to overclock my processor, and if so, what speed would be safe and stable.

Dan.

The P133 chip doesn't overclock well.  First, almost all of them were "neutered" by Intel so that 2X multiplier is the only one wired up internally.  So changing the clock multiplier is not an option.

That leaves you with the only option being changing the system bus clock.  If your MB supports increments between 66MHz and 100MHz, you can try them out and see.  Most P133 chips I've tried will not work at a 100MHz system bus.

You might consider tossing that P133 chip and getting a faster one.

Short but sweet. I am currently thinking of purchasing an AMD K6-2 500MHz Processor. The reason I need to overclock mine is because I am a high school student, and money is a bit tight at the moment. I just wanted to overclock it for the short term.
