XP2500+ Barton Core

  TJ Macintosh 23:21 05 Sep 2003

Bought this, proceeded overclocking, got up to 2.09GHz, at which stage oit correctly identifies as 2800+. This is at multiplier of (12.5/13), when i go higher, (14), it recognises the cpu as 835MHz AMD ATHLON??????? so does that mean i have to unlok the L1 bridges to go higher? i have heard of people gettin this CPU up to 2.5GHz!

Id just like to say that I have now got it running at multiplier of (12,5/13) which is recognised as XP2800+, only when i goabove i have this reduction in speed, but the FSB always stays at 166, which seem to confuse me,as i cnt work out how the calculatio for 835MHz is made!!??!!??

So just askin again, do I ahve to physicall unlok the cpu? to get it higher!??

I am sure I dnt have to increase the voltage just yet.

forums more likely to get the help you want.

In view of your question of the cpu being recongised incorrectly as a 835mhz, when u overclock, it may well be the motherboard safety kicking in. Also i was under the impression that the easiest (most stable) way to overclock a athlon xp of the barton generation was to increase the fsb.

well at the moment I have it recognised as a 2800+XP, but actually running at 2.2GHz, here i have the fsb at 177 n the multiplier set to 12.5/13. At load it is 61C, n idle at 50 something!. So is ok considering my old duron used to idle at 68C!

So is this set up ok for now??

maybe a little high, but as long as it is stable don't worry about it.

As kane_2002k says, the temp. is a little on the high side, but the AMD will go to a max. of 90c before damage. Might be a good idea to go back into BIOS and if you have the option, [Mine does] set safety cut-out to a max. of 70c. This will then just shut your system down for a while rather than fry the CPU. j.

Would be best if you let us know what motherboard you are using.

Sometimes the multipliers work for 2 variations ie 14 or 5/ 15 or 6 if you follow my meaning.

Also would be careful going up that far with the cooling you have,what heat sink and fan are you using?.

If you get that core to 2.5GHz using a vcore under 2V and air cooled i will eat my monitor.

BTW for some reason Bartons and 333 TBreds overclock higher if you get them to default to a 266MHz FSB.

My XP2400+ (tbred core) will do 440MHz FSB at 2.2GHz (1.8 Vcore) with the RAM in sync and remain stable but the heat produced isnt worth the effort TBH. I just run it at its default speed but with a mulitplier of 200x10 it doesnt go higher than 53C under full load then.
