I've ordered a new rig here so I'm not really worried about this stand-in desktop I'm using currently. However I still am curious to see if its possible to push this little CPU a bit further for the hell of it. The thing is running room temperature EXACTLY. It doesn't even break a sweat attempting to run some games. Its probably the modest little CPU i've ever seen and I'm aware that its been stripped of cache and other goodies that will hold it back, but I'm curious how far I could OC this thing.
The big draw back is that its currently in an HP OEM Motherboard, which we all know means no OCing via BIOS. Any insight into some software that may be able to unlock this thing? Its an HP a6500f with a Napa-GL8E motherboard, 4gigs of DDR2-800.
Any chance of an OC?
