  1. Soo i've tryed to overclock my E1200 .... first after format the clock speed was 200x6 meaning 1.2 ..... soo i tried to get it back to normal 1.6 which would mean 200x8

    so i saved and exited bios... after a few restarts thru the day
    when starting up the PC i see 1.60GHZ(200x6)
    i don't see how 200x6 = 1.6?

    is that normal? because i want to know before i go up to 2.0 or higher

    It is certainly not normal, though I've personally seen this on many Celeron models (like the 900 and the E3300), and it usually turns out OK anyway.

    I've had a minor incident when it mis-showed the frequency calculation, but in that case it was related to the motherboard not supporting OC that well...

    Just as an FYI, overclocking even though the frequency-calculation is incorrect usually don't result in any damage. But would be very careful if I were you.
