I'd like to share some overclocking experiences of mine with you. It all started out when I just got bored of my PII-450 running quietly along at 504, as my P2B-S doesn't allow higher clockspeeds. I just wanted to go do real overclocking again. So I bought myself 2 week 35 C366's. These baby's ran just great at 566 MHz @ 2.0v, which put a big smile on my face, considering I paid the equivalent of $70 for them here in The Netherlands.
But of course, this wasn't enough. Like every hooked overclocker, I wanted more - 615 MHz, as that was the limit of my board. So reading a few reviews here and there I decided to get the highest performing Global Win FDP 32. But, it was a no go. Even the FDP 32 couldn't get them to 615.
Next option was a peltier, so I got the well known Tom Leufkens peltier set. After a few minor modifications to my FDP 32, I booted up. Everything went fine…. Booted up… Lock…. S^$T. Other CPU… Booted up…locked in CPU Mark99, which was a sign for me that the second CPU was more stable. Of course I tried all voltages… But heat was my main problem, because the FDP 32 started to cook. Even strapping 2 80mm case fans on it didn't help.
