Processor speeds

Does anyone have any information or any web sites where I can get information on changing the speed of a processor -- I believe it's a Pentium 3 -- which is only running at ~ 386Mhz but apparently can run up to a maximum of 1Ghz ? Thanks.

You might wont to find out the actuall cpu speed/type before wacking it up to a gig,if its only a 400mhz chip it will bang fairly loud,lol.

are you looking at info from your mobo manual. 1ghz is probably the max CPU speed your mobo will take not what you can overclock the present CPU too.
there tools out there that can tell you what you have inside your pc. try this click here

PIII never ran that slow.

If my memory serves my correctly the lowest speed PIII was a 450.

Search click here for CPUID this will tell you what CPU you have and its present speed.

386mhz is a odd speed, Is your system a laptop running from battery ?

just thinking out loud

I presume you're unsure of what processor you actually have. The slowest pentium III I think was a 400. Suggest you either download belarc click here which will supply all info on the hardware of your system or click here from Intel. Its very important before you alter anything that you correctly identify what processor you have as ACOLYTE has pointed out you could blow your processor up if you set it too high.
