Overclockers' Workbench heeft een klein artikeltje online geschopt waarin ze nog even uitleggen hoe je je Pentium 3 (zij gebruikten een p3-450) kunt overklokken, met behulp van Abit SoftMenu II. Klik hier voor het hele artikel.
Okay, now you have a OEM P3... skip to the next step. The rest of you who bought a retail P3can continue reading. The only problem with retail CPUs is that it's bloody difficult to remove the covering so what do you do?? The easiest way is to fit the case screw into the pin holes. Remember that there are 4 pin holes so fit the case screw into one and press down HARD but firmly. You would hear a click and the case screw would be embedded in the covering. Remove it and do it the same with the rest. It's that simple. If you're still having problems with my instructions, please go over to The TechZone and read their instructions. Just follow the instructions and you'll be left with a "naked" CPU!! The URL is: http://thetechzone.com/articles/p3_heatsink_remove.htm
Well, what do you do now with a naked CPU?? Well, first of all, you have to clean it. Wipe off all the thermal paste that is on the CPU. Remember that you cannot, cannot be messy! I tried to give it a wipe and whack the cooler on and in the end, I can't reach the speed that I got with the retail cooler on. With a retail cooler, I could reach 558mhz but even with a 3rd party cooler, I couldn't reach 558mhz. It's all BECAUSE I was messy. I didn't wipe it clean! So... WIPE THE DAMN THING CLEAN!!
