 The FrankenCooler I
Conclusion

Now that I’ve showed you how to build a supercooler and some of the theory behind it, let’s see how it performs:

I ended up at 735MHz with the core voltage at 2,5V, the RAM at 2-2-2, and cache latency set at 5. For stability testing I ran SETI for 72h and looped 3dMark2000 for hours without any hang-ups. I could boot into Windows at 750MHz, but unfortunately I couldn’t use it for anything, and I would not consider it as a successful overclock unless it’s 100% stable. Just to illustrate how it actually performs, I ran a few benchmarks in Sisoft Sandra at 466MHz, 700MHz and 735MHz.

I think these charts are quite clear: There is a big improvement, ca 58%, both in CPU speed and in Sisoft scores. The screenshot of Sisoft with the CPU at 735 shows how it compares to others, like a PIII500:

That’s it. I’m done (for now). If you have anything on your mind, or want to discuss something in this tutorial, by all means, send me a mail. Just as a teaser for you guys: I bought a CeleronII 566 and I'm currently running it at 1003MHz with the core at -15C°, 1,75V so there is a potential of a 100% overclock here :)

Take care and be sure to check in from time to time for updates. I'm planning a heavy casemod soon. Everything is ready planned, and it's gonna be a killer!!
