1600xp as 1900xp Questions

  woodchip 17:02 12 Nov 2003

I am running at the moment a Athlon 1600xp+ at 19000, Temps just the same CPU 49c System 37c standard CPU coolermaster fan and PSU fan. The system works far better I get no corrupt files, It boots OK Have I missed anything on Win98. Can you see any problems.

PS when I boot up it says 1900xp in Device Manager it says AMD Athlon(tm)XP 1900+ but it's only a 1600XP

Jester2K II is kind of right but if AMD get a surge of say XP1700+ needed they will take any chip they have large supplys of and lock it down to an XP1700+ thats why the last lot of XP1700+ (cant remember the stepping) were highly sort after they clocked to XP2600+ with no issues at all simply because that is what they were to start with.

None of the Palomino cored XPs were good overclockers so a 170Mhz OC is good indeed.

I run my XP2400 at 200X10 which gives the default speed (so no heat increase) but an extra 1.1GBs bandwidth over the front side bus.

So what does the last figures equate to that I posted for a 1600XP

Woodchip, as you know I have the same motherboard and CPU as you, I increased the FSB to 150/150/50 as you suggest and achieved almost identical results to you.

Cpu temp 49 system temp 31 and Cpu showed as 1900+. Ran it for 30mins on 100% CPU load to get the above temperatures. Everything stable.

I must confess that the performance difference was not really noticeable but then the speed of my machine is governed by the nut on the front of the keyboard.

Interesting though and I await your next report to see how high you dare to go.

It looks like you've got your multiplier set to 10.5 in bios along with your fsb set to 150/30. 10.5 x 150 = 1575mhz or same as XP1900. Looking at your cpu and system temp there seems to be no reason why you can't leave it like that. The burn-out temp of an AMD cpu is about 90 - 95c but your pc should automatically shut down before that. Just keep an eye on the cpu temp as the more you overclock the quicker the temp will rise if your cpu fan fails. Why not install a third party monitor program such as motherboard monitor just to be on the safe side. click here
