I have discovered few months ago, when I upgraded my PC, that I’m an overclock fan! These are the new pieces that I have bought:
- CPU: AMD Sempron 2600+ BOX [1833MHz as multiplier 11 x BUS Speed 166]
- Mother Board: EPoX 8RDA3I PRO [with SATA and RAID]
- Memory: DDRAM 512 Kingmax PC3200/400MHz [lifetime guarantee]
- Case: noname 400W
Now, because I had bought DDRAM at 400MHz, I was expect that I will use its power. But, surprise… My CPU have 333MHz bus. So, I have tried to overclock the CPU at 2200MHz [11×200]. Because of the poor performance cooler, this overclock failed.
I decided to buy a new cooler which can cool my CPU. I have sold my old mother board [Gigabyte GA-7VA-C] and I have bought an impressive ThermalTake Volcano11+.
