Dr Tom overclocks T'birds, Durons and Athlons
AMD can lock its multipliers all it likes
As usual, we do the legwork around the land where the ware is hard so you don't have to.
Tom has found a way of overclocking the socket processors from AMD. Go here to find out the right settings for the copper bridges. The good doctor says that these techniques will work for any motherboard. Tweaktown has also posted a similar article here so check that out too.
So, go ahead, lock (or sort of lock) those multipliers AMD, it doesn't stop this lot!
As well as that, good news for CeleryII owners. HardOCP has posted an article detailing how to boost your voltage from 1.65 to 1.8. They guys reckon this will work on just about any mainboard with adjustable voltage for the CPU.
Meanwhile, Arstechnica has been thinking about RAM. This piece gives a thorough background to the subject - which lets face it, is more complicated than it used to be. I mean, do you know the difference between CAS 2 and CAS 3? You will by the end of the article.
You know, this always happens. You forget to bookmark a site in a fit of "I have too many things on my favourites list, I'll remember this one", and then realise the amount of good stuff that has been going on there while you've been gone. Anandtech has loads of good stuff, but the latest is a clued up buyers guide to the GeForce2 GTS cards out there. ®
