I just got one of those Compaq presario 5000 computers and it has a celeron 667 and i really wnat to over clock it but i dont know what kind of MotherBoard i have and i dont know what jumper to change on the motherboard so that it lets me tweak the bus speed in cmos. I tried lookin on the compaq site but it had too much information and i couldnt make out what was for me. The exact model is 5bw131.

  1. Didn't I see a tidbit from Tom on a pin modification that tricks the motherboard into switchig to 100MHZ FSB? Not that a Cele would actually go to 1100 MHZ, but you might be able to do 800 with a 533, and they are cheap! Otherwise, you will be limited to using an overclocking software.
  2. What software would be the best for celerons or are they the same? <-- confuesed thought i had to turn off somejumpers inorder to allow me to modify the settings.

  3. I keep seeing people mention software for Windows that allows the system bus speed to be altered AFTER the system boots. While this seems odd to me, they swear it works! Try posting a new thread with the subject "O/C software?" or something like that, you'll probably receive lots of responses! The reason I suggested this is that Compaq uses unique bios and custom/altered motherboards in most of their machines, so I see little alternative.
  4. yea, i think your right about the mother boards, because this is suppose to be a new system but it has only 4 pci slots, no agp or and eisa slots. =(
  5. I have seen an increasing number of OEMs switch from proprietary cases to ATX form factors. Is yours Micro ATX?
    Asus has a micro version of the CUSL2 called the CUSL2-M that would be an incredible improvement if it is. They include an AGP slot and are easy to overclock.
  6. first you need to run Sisoft Sandra. dont know the url but can be found with a easy search. this will identify your clock generator. then you need Soft FSB (front side bus) and yes you install the program of course reboot then if your motherboard will accept it (works on most motherboards i've tried) you change the fsb from windows.
  7. Soft FSB seems to support these mobo's:

    And how do you find your clock generator with sandra?

    <b>Voodoo</b><i>Child</i> :cool:
  8. under main board information it lists every chip it can recognise it also lists the speed of all busses etc
  9. Try , it tries to identify your motherboard using codes shown at bootup. If that fails, try the MoboCop, where you can ask everyone that might know. After that, you probably just need to go to the motherboard manufacturer's site to see if they have an online manual of the board.

    Have you had a good look at the motherboard? Sometimes they print stuff on the board itself, a bit of guesswork might make it work.

    Also, maybe in the BIOS setup you have to change some setting from "Auto-detect" to "Manual"..
