Thresh's FiringSquad heeft een handige guide gebakken om je te helpen je P3-450, 500 of 550 over te klokken. Check de info hier.
It looks like the P3-450 offers the largest gains at the lowest price. For only $250, you can get a processor that has a very good shot at 558MHz with a chance for 581MHz and 600MHz.
The P3-500 processors we tested were only able to reach 560 with a standard heatsink and fan -a modest gain, but not as impressive as the P3-450.
The 616MHz target for the P3-550 looks tempting because it breaks the 600MHz barrier, but the cost is still a little too high for the average overclocker.
By nature, most overclockers are bargain hunters looking for the most bang for the buck. Of all the P3 processors, the P3-450 would be the most promising CPU. At its most common overclocked speed of 558MHz, the P3-450 offers a 24% gain while the P3-500 and P3-550 processors only post 12% gains at their most likely overclocked speeds of 560MHz and 616MHz respectively.
