|I really don't care about internet speed. I have (relatively slow) DSL anyway, and my main interest is increasing the speed of the number crunching. My reference to cooler weather is significant. I,m surprised I didn't fry the thing this summer, before I learned how to throttle back on % of time the CPU ran. I would probably be more interested in increasing the Bus Speed from 133-166 MHz, since RAM is capable of that. Of course, that would probably result in the CPU increasing from 1.8-2.25 GHz, a 25% increase in speed. That does sound ridiculous. I was thinking more along the lines of 10%. I've done that before with a desktop. That would require a Bus Speed of just 146 MHz, resulting in a CPU speed of just 1.98 GHz. That might be possible.|
By the way, CPU-Z returns results of: Bus Speed 133 MHz, Rated FSB 265 MHz. What actually is front side bus, and why is the speed different?
Now I just need somebody who can tell me how to tinker with the appropriate settings. Unless, of course, somebody has knowledge it would be pure suicide.
