Post your most appreciated CPU names/model number/year/week of prodution/record overclocks/100% stable overclocks/appreciated performance/etc
here

For me:
Pentium 90MHz oc'ed to 120MHz 100% stable
-chip has been turned into a neckchain 2 years ago.

Pentium iii 650MHz coppermine oc'ed to 866MHz with 10% overvolt, runs at a cool 32C under full load, still used.

Tualatin Celeron 1300MHz oc'ed to 1612MHz totally stable, 45C under load (isshhh, summer wasn't nice). Booted at 1733MHz with a 10% overvolt, unstable. Still beats early P4s.

P4 Northwood of course, Malaysia for me. Stable at 3.3GHz, booted at 3.75GHz, unstable though, all stock.

Here is mine... P4 3.0, stable at 3.75. Usually stable at 3.8, can finish 3dMark01, but a few games crash occasionally. 1.62V

Intel Celeron 500 @ 600MHz defualt cooling & voltage (didn't even know about voltage settings at the time)
Athlon XP 2500+ 1.83GHz @ 2.45GHz (1.85v)
Pentium4 2.8C @ 3.5 @ (1.7v) pretty crap really

I was happy with my Duron 600@900, wish my Barton2500+ would do more than 2.2 stable :(

Knew i forgot something, my Duron 800 @ 1066MHz @ 1.85v

Nice on that Duron Smokey! man, 150%!!!! was that stable?
Whoot on that 2500+ Dazz! 133% on an AMD!!!!

If I recall, the Celeron 300a overclock well past 600mhz. That's a pretty damn impressive OC since it would be more than double it's original speed.

The P4 1.6 Northwood gave a lot of folks 2.4ghz or more so that's was sweet.

And of course the Mobile AthlonXP 2400, 2500, and 2600 are considered some of today's best overclockers.

My OC'ing results have varied from pointless to beneficial...

K6/2 400 @ 500
K6/3 350 @ 500
Duron 600 @ 690
Tbird 1.33 @ 1.4
XP1600 <<N0es>>
XP1700 @ 2.0, 182fsb
XP1700 @ 2.2, 200fsb
XP2400 @ 2.3, 182fsb
XP2500 @ 2.2, 200fsb
XP2400 Mobile @ 2.4, 200fsb

I can post at 2.5Ghz but blue screens as soon as i enter windows with more voltage i am sure 2.5+Ghz is easy :)

Athlon 700 Blue "copper core" (7x100)....this was my first AMD and I will remember it always :)

1133mhz ( 8.5x133! ) on air...and this little sucker is still running today.....sold to a friend for a home server

Yes it was 100% stable.

Thing is I killed my 1800+, I didnt have alot of cash, so I managed to find this Duron600 second hand real cheap. I was happy with the OC, as I was missing out on playing RavenShield without a cpu. I later got my brother inlaws old Duron700, and it couldnt even do 900 lol. Later on though, once I got my Barton, and put this into the wifes pc, it wasnt 100% stable at 900, but was at 800, which was fine for her, think her case was hotter than mine.

The different motherboard might have been supplying a different (lower) voltage to the Duron. I don't hink it was heat, imo.

8086
A true classique non? Probably THE definitive classic. Never had the pleasure of owning one, my first was an 8088/10MHz machine w/DOS 3.30. :)

Just for sh][ts and giggles, here's the CPUs that I have run over the years:
8088/10
80486DX/33
80486DX/50
Pentium 133
Pentium II 266
Pentium II 333
Pentium III 733
Pentium III 850
Pentium 4 2.53B
Pentium 4 3.0C

Just how far back do YOU go? :)

Commodore 64! :headbang:

Though my present Barton 2500+ @ 2.25 GHz (215 fsb) is certainly not the greatest overclock ever, I'm still 100% satisfied with its performance. My system can run perfectly stable at these settings with 1.775v vcore, which I think is pretty good. :)

Commodore 64. You do go back quite a ways dontcha??? That is as ancient as my old 8088/10 system. :D

My 486DX/50 (not DX2) was probably the oddball of all the computers I've had so far. When I bought it I fried one of them - it overheated and died on me while I had it doing some 3dmodeling overnight one evening. Took that PC back in and they replaced the CPU. I put some better (albeit very noisy) cooling on it after that. The DX50 was a *hot* CPU for it's day. People were overclocking even back then, but to overclock a DX50 you almost had to have liquid nitro. :)

Whoah, you had a DX50?? Those things WERE hot... That had no multiplier usage, it was just straight 50mhz, through and through... Heh, then intel realized that reviewers wee mentioning HEAT for the first time, and they took a step back and said "well, is there some other way we could have a "50" chip?? And the DX2 series was born... :p

I think there was even a few actual DX66's around at one point... heh, wow, I'm now remembering seeing Win3.1 FLY on a DX50 with 8mb RAM and an S3 vidcard... :D

OK here goes...

Pentium MMX 200Mhz = Still running strong in a computer i recently rebuilt for playing DOS games (the computer had been sitting since '99)
Athlon Slot A 750Mhz = What a great CPU. My first AMD, and it was a speed demon. Sold this CPU in a computer to a friend a year and a half ago, and its still running great.
Athlon XP 1700+ Thoroughbred B JIUHB 302 = Best CPU ever made. Period. I spent $50 on it a year and a half ago, and im still using it. Its overclocked 622Mhz and its perfectly stable and runs at decent temps. 2.09Ghz out of a $50, 1 1\2 year old 1.47ghz CPU, is just plain amazing. On air cooling no less... heh, i love this thing.... any time I feel the need to upgrade my CPU because its a mere 1700+ I slap myself and then think about how its running at the speed of a 2600+ :D

You really want to know?

Intellivision (more like a console)
Commodore 64 (wasn't Jumpman just great?)
80386 16MHz (Wolf3D - DoomI)
80486 66MHz (Tie Fighter - DoomII)
Pentium I 90Mhz@120MHz
Pentium I 133MHz (MechwarriorII Mercenaries)
Pentium II 333MHz@375MHz (nothing really)
Pentium III 650MHz@866Mhz (every game up to UT2k3)
Pentium III/celerontualatin 1300MHz@1612Mhz (every game up to UT2k4)
Pentium IV 2400MHz@3200Mhz does 3388MHz perfect, though ram is unhappy (every game up to FarCry)

Yeah my first AMD cpu was a slotA 700, ran it @800 stable, I havent touched Intel since ;)

Heh, how do you think folks feel that push their 1700's @ 200-220fsb, 2.4ghz on air?? I ever got that high with mine, but I've seen quite a few... it's simply amazing that a $40cpu can perform SO FREAKIN good... I mean heck, 200fsb, 2.4ghz would basically be like an XP3200 TBred... :p

Yep, thats EXACTLY why I bought it. I even waited until a specific week of the chip was available that overclocked extra extra nice.

Go to www.overclockers.com . I guess it wouldnt be hard to fake some of that stuff, but if you go into the CPU database, the TBred 1700+ has gotten up to 4.7Ghz with some sort of completely rediculous cooling. I can honestly say that the 1700+ TBred B cores are (and will be for a long time) the best bang for your buck CPU ever. Its a shame they arent made any more (at least not in mass quantities)... they would probably be in the $30 range now :D

BTW, when i run this thing at stock 1.47Ghz, its load temps are around 35C. Absolutely amazing.
