X200 overclock from chinese forums

#1 Post by tottoroo » Sat Oct 10, 2020 9:43 pm

I'm looking for some info about how to overclock an X200.

I couldn't find much, actually only a post* on this forum about a 3Ghz OC X200 for sale, which seemed to be from China. So I'm assuming they have a thread about how to do it somewhere...?
(*Thread here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=130492 )

If anybody has some info on it, please let me know. :bow: Willing to risk a P8400 board I already have liquid metal on, to try it out.

That particular X200 appears to be overclocked via a simple phase-locked loop modification. This is just my guess, though. I don't know if this is exactly what he did, but considering the jump in clock speed (266.666 MHz x 9 = 2.4 GHz > 333.333 MHz x 9 = 2.99 GHz), it could be possible.

Just wanted to thank you for the swift reply :) Interesting link!

Will look more into the translation and the images - I have a cheap soldering station and horrible soldering skills, but maybe those will be enough provided I can figure out what he's talking about.

EDIT: So, thanks to the title from the link I got this from Baidu:

https://forum.51nb.com/thread-1516974-1-1.html

It seems a little hard mostly because:
(A) the automatic translation makes it confusing to understand whether the guy's talking about the X200 or X200s, or the X61/s, as he jumps from one to the other in his explanation
(B) he's soldering in really tiny spots
