Na al het AMD Athlon geweld nu weer eens een review van een Intel chippie, de Pentium III 500. Check de review hier.
The Pentium III-500's 5X multiplier give us a fairly nice speed range to play with. To do the overclocking test, I removed the stock Intel heatsink (click here to find out how to do that) and put on an Alpha P125 cooler that I got from 2CoolTek. The P125 is really a Pentium II cooler. It wasn't designed for Pentium IIIs. I modified it so it would work on the PIII-500. Click here to find out how I did that.
Here are the results of my overclocking test.
- 5 x 100MHz = 500 MHz - 100% stable at 2V
- 5 x 103MHz = 515 MHz - 100% stable at 2V
- 5 x 112MHz = 560 MHz - 100% stable at 2V
- 5 x 117Mhz = 585 Mhz - 100% stable at 2V
- 5 x 124MHz = 620 MHz - 100% stable at 2.2V
- 5 x 129MHz = 645 MHz - POST, locks just as it's about to load Windows
- 5 x 133Mhz = 665 Mhz - POST, Locks up at Windows splash screen.
