Planet Hardware brengt ons een gedetailleerde Pentium III Overclocking Guide, zo geschreven dat vooral newbies ook wat tweakles binnen krijgen. Naast info over de proc zelf wordt er ook info gegegen over chipset keuze, cooling, geheugen, het BIOS e.d. Hieronder een hap uit de conclusie.
The Pentium III is one of the strongest overclocking CPU lines on the market. Many of its available speed grades can be overclocked quite significantly with relative ease. The best news is that because Intel has been manufacturing these chips for almost 2 years, the quality of the chips across the board is fairly good. This means that the chances of getting a good overclocking CPU candidate are fairly high, though there are still 'lemons' to be had.
If you're interested in getting a CPU guaranteed of overclocking well, several online merchants sell chips which have been tested to certain levels (Outside Loop is one such example). These merchants do charge a premium price for these chips, but the chips also come with a warranty of at least a year - guaranteeing operation at the overclocked frequency. For some, this is a better solution than gambling and purchasing a random retail or OEM Pentium III.
In any case, you should have plenty of instructions and confidence to take your Pentium III to new heights. As we have stressed throughout this guide, some CPUs overclock better than others - so expect your results to vary widely as compared with those on the 'Net and with friends. Overclocking can be a fun activity, provided you have patience and don't mind locking up your computer while your testing.
