Best processor for overclocking?


Ok, so there is this big overclockingcompetition here in Sweden and i plan to win the part where the guy that gets the highest percentage overclock wins.. So i was wondering wich processor is the best for that. These processors are allowed:

Pentium II or better
Celeron or better
AMD K6 or better

I plan on using dryice cooling allso..
The winner last year used Liquid Nitrogen to overclock his 600MHz Duron to 1530MHz. But he wont compete this year and I dont think that anyone else will use LN..

The Celeron will overclock the farthest but will be the slowest.

Try a Celeron 300A. They will overclock like crazy, since you are looking % OC, you should try that, (If you can find one )

Well, you can "only" overclock that processor about 50% at max

There are 300A's going on E-bay for $5, but I think the shipping to Sweden would be very expensive.

cheapest up to date processors:

1700+ DLT3C ThoroughbredB, with phase change, a few get to 3Ghz, overclock of more than 100%. hard to find though, so you might have better luck finding 1800+ DLT3Cs.

1.6A and 1.8A: some overclock to more than 3Ghz, one good example is Larva's 1.8A at 3.4Ghz with air cooling. Put that in a phase changed cooling setup, and 100% overclock might be possible.

otherwise, go with 300A if you can get the parts to get a working system.

but I guess if that guy had such great results with a 600Mhz Duron, you might as well give it a try too, after all, they can't cost much nowadays.

you might actually have more luck going with this cheap route, as with the same cash you can buy many processors to try and find that special one. gotta make sure you know what steppings of that Duron you need to look for though.

too bad its not for fsb, I popped a duron1.3 into my nf7-s, watercooled and volt modded, and 4 hours later i got a 388 mhz FSB(seriously!) long enough to boot into windows for about 12 seconds before it BSOD'd and popped the die, almost got cpuid open!.....oh well at least i got a 1.3ghz key chain out of the deal, too bad no one believes me..... no cpuid no trust.....

Do you want to have the most bang for the buck or the highest % overclock for bragging rights? Those two questions have different answers- first one qualifies for the Celeron replies, second one for the XP1700+ and 2.4C ones...

A 1400 duron with a 'B' core would get you the highest. That sucker overclocks as well or even better than any other 'B' thoroughbred and it starts out a lot slower than the 1700+ or 1800+. Just my advice.

300A is by far the best CPU to get teh highest % overclock.
AXIA Athlon's @ 1GHz are not far behind in that highest % overclock as 1.4GHz is almost a sure thing, and we extreme cooling like you plan 1.6GHz should be doable...

Now if you want to do a flash overclock, to get the highest screen shoot... its really a crap shoot. But you are going to want a motherboard that can feed alot of voltage into your CPU. Also, make sure you dont get limited by your RAM
