Windows 7: Overclocking Celeron E1400 on stock cooling

Overclocking Celeron E1400 on stock cooling

I have a 2007 Packard Bell Machine (will be building a new from scratch in the next year or so) and i would like to over clock it so i could get more power in the mean time, i have the stock cooler which came with the machine but i also have the case open so more circulation is achieved. this is gonna be my first over clock and i have read that my mobo might not let me, i want to avoid shortening the processors life. any help would be appreciated.

If its a pre built system from someone like Packard Bell/Dell etc then yes you might not even have the options in the motherboard bios to even attempt an overclock.

Even if you can, on a processor of that age you will notice very little if any difference over stock speed.

I don't want to put you off overclocking in general, but you need a few of the right parts in the first place. I don't expect the CPU will overclock well, the motherboard may be locked to stop you trying and with the stock cooler it's not worth it.

I would suggest spending the next few months learning about how to build your next rig and what components you want and also overclocking the newer processors around and then when you are ready to take the plunge you will know what to do.

The last thing you want to do is fry your current rig and with the stock cooling you might just do that.

Hope this helps a little.

OK thx, i have looked into the bios and no i cant access the bios settings, but any performance increase is good, i have looked on setFSB but i cant find my PLL anywhere on the web, is it stated anywhere on the mobo itself?

I'm not sure what that means. You say you looked in the BIOS and then you say you can't access the BIOS settings.

You got good advice from Paulpicks21.

There is not much chance a Packard Bell BIOS will allow you to change the settings required to overclock---even if it would be worthwhile on that processor.
