    Overclocking the Intel 2.4BCPU


    (Page 1 of 3 )

    After purchasing my Intel Pentium 2.4B processor a few weeks ago, I thought I'd sit down and write a quick article on the type of performance I was able to obtain from this CPU and hopefully give a little insight on what our readers could possibly expect from this chip if they were in the market for one. Intel currently has a great line-up of processors but the 2.4B I particularly like due to it's great performance, overclocking possibilities and fairly decent price. Another aspect that is appealing is the CPU's use of the 533MHz System Bus, or 133MHz FSB which we expect to give us increased performance across the board.
     Company: Intel

    Product: 2.4B/533MHz CPU

    Price: $185.00 (OEM)

    Introduction

    After purchasing my Intel Pentium 2.4B processor a few weeks ago, I thought I'd sit down and write a quick article on the type of performance I was able to obtain from this CPU and hopefully give a little insight on what our readers could possibly expect from this chip if they were in the market for one. Intel currently has a great line-up of processors but the 2.4B I particularly like due to it's great performance, overclocking possibilities and fairly decent price. Another aspect that is appealing is the CPU's use of the 533MHz System Bus, or 133MHz FSB which we expect to give us increased performance across the board.

     

    Out of the Box

    The CPU arrived in the standard Intel P4 packaging as you might expect. Take note of the specific markings showing we have the 533Mhz part.

     

      

     

    Intel made great strides recently with the introduction of the Northwood Processor with a .13micron die as well as 512KB of L2 cache. Intel has since furthered this with the inclusion of the 533MHz System bus with it's latest processors beginning at 2.26GHz.

    Update: Initially I did not include a pic of the box that showed serial number, product code, factory, date, but MOST importantly, that chip is C1 stepping. Here's a shot.
     


     

     

    Below is a close-up shot of the chip so you can checkout all the factory markings (and a few of my fingerprints as well). 

    I Intentionally left above shot fairly large so you could easily make out the markings. Intel has also been kind enough to document all of their CPU's online for us to take a look at and I was nice enough to annotate those here for all to see.

     

     
    sSpec Number SL6EF
    Processor Frequency 2.40B GHz
     
    CPUID String 0F27h
    Package Type FC-PGA2 478-pin
     
    Core Voltage 1.525V
    Bus Speed 533 MHz
     
    Thermal Design Power 59.8W
    Core Stepping C1
     
    Max Junction Temp 71C
    L2 Cache Size 512K
     
    Die Size 0.13 micron
    L2 Cache Speed 2.40 GHz
     
    ECC/non-ECC ECC
    Bus/Core Ratio 18.0
     
    Boxed/OEM Processor? Boxed
    Product Order Code BX80532PE2400D
     

     

    Touching briefly on Intel Chipsets, this CPU is designed to run on the 850, 845E, 845PE, 845GE, 845GV, and 845G model chipsets. Today we are testing the 2.4B on the ABIT IT7 MAX motherboard with the Intel 845E chipset. If you would like additional information on Intel Chipsets please checkout their website.

     

    Installation

    Installing the chip is fairly straight forward so I won't cover much of that here, but lets take a look at the BIOS to see what our options are. Some of these pics are a bit blury as my camera doesn't seem to like taking pics of the BIOS on my monitor.

    Going into your BIOS with the 2.4B you'll see it's default settings of 18x Multiplier x 133FSB.

     

     

    Stock Voltage is 1.525v. All DRAM Ratio's are also defaulted at this point. Next page, Overclocking.
