    I'll check again next time I am tinkering with the that Clovertown setup, but EIST should have been disabled so it would be running at its maximum frequency.

    The reason for not trying the overclocking yet has been due to only having so much time in a day However, if you want to post some additional information in this thread I or someone else working with me will give it a shot.

      I think, the easiest thing is to try software overclocking first.

      Under Windows, please download systool utility
      http://www.techpowerup.com/systool/
      choose PLL ICS932S401 from the list. Try small FSB steps at a time.

      Under Linux, please mail me at shaposh@isp.nsc.ru

      and i'll send you the utility and instructions to use.


      Low voltage and weak memory will most certailny prevent you from having good overclock. For good OC, you will have to
      1, Make a Vcore mod and
      2. Make a 1333FSB mod.

      Both are done through isolating and re-connecting CPU legs, This is easy and does not require any permanent moduifications or soldering.

        Thank you for your comments and we will definitely evaluate your suggestion.

        In regards to the i5000X, if I recall correctly, I have used Dapper Drake without any problems. I don't think I had tried out an i5000P on Dapper Drake or any other enterprise distributions.
        hey Michael. I had a question on your Tyan Board and the Clovertown Processor support. Was there A BIOS update that needed to be done to support the clovertown processors, or did you just drop them in and there was no problems? If so. would this be the same story for other models of the tempest lineup with a Blackford chipset? Example the Tyan Tempest S5382?

        Thanks in advance

        Yes it has been a long time since my last visit. Life is Busy

          For the Tyan Tempest i5000XT no BIOS update was needed, but the board was specifically intended for the Clovertown series. For the rest of the Tempest series, however, it is different.

              Natively by the BIOS it doesn't support overclocking. Hopefully smpfreak will be able to comment since I haven't gotten around to trying it out yet for the new Xeons.

                Hello Michael,
                thx for the quick reply.

                Does the software overclocking methoad using systool really work or is it just a gimmic?

                Thanks and Regards
