Windows 7: 7048 Is Great For Overclocking..

7048 Is Great For Overclocking..

Hi, I would just like to share my experenice of over clocking and windows 7.

In builds <7048 i could only overclock my cpu (AMD Athlon XP 2600+) to around 2037MHz, anything beyond that and i would get BSOD on boot....

I started playing around agin after installing Windows 7 buold 7048 x86 and got some great results and have yet to hit a brickwall or BSOD...

I have managed now to overclock the 2600 to 2083 MHz (11.5 x 181) with no heat or stability issues at all.. whats more when i got to this setting and rebooted windows installed new cpu drivers (for2800+) and prompted a reboot, i done as it asked and now my cpu is recongnized as a 2800+..

Gonna push it further shortly, i managed only with win2k to get it a bit further than this without problems... lets see... :)

I just got it to over 2100MHz but it was unstable and froze on me, but that was after having the pc on for around three days, i may try again in a minute as i just woke up and turned pc on and am running a lot cooler now... mmm

It will be good to hear more results, i was disapointed when i got blue screens going past 2037mhz in previous builds but this seems about right for my machine and similar to how it was running when i used win2k/xp.

Not only is it great for overclocking but just by installing 7048 after testing 7000 my score in aquamark suddenly increased by 200 points

still have to try overclocking but with an acer laptop that's quite a challenge
