Most successful overclock thus far...
« on: December 13, 2003, 08:00:01 AM »

Hey,
Just wanted to know if this is typical, or very good...

I have the athlon xp 1700+ tbred B core.  my bios doesnt have a setting to change my multiplier, so I have just been upping the FSB.  I have the chip up to an athlon 2400+ right now, 1.94ghz.

The only PCI card i have in there is my SBLive, and an AGP mx440 (soon to be geforce fx 5900).

So, I think i will keep it at 2400+ for a while, and see how that goes.

It depends......... If it is an older palamino core then that is a good speed. If it is a tbred core then that speed is low average. I have the same cpu but mine is a low voltage version. It is a DLT3C chip and I am running it at 215x11=2365mhz at 1.725v. I have a SLK800 heatsink and my current cpu temp is 36C.

I know that the overall speed isnt the greatest for a tbred B core, but its the fact that i cant change the multiplier.  Plus, im only running generic pc2100 ram :)

Yeah that does make a difference. Everything on your pci bus is overclocked now. Hopefully you will not have anything that does not like that.

I would unlock the mutiplier on the chip. It will give you a better safer overclock.

the thing is that the Tbred B core of the athlon 1700+ is supposed to have the multiplier unlocked... but it still isnt in my bios or anything.
