|I recently obtained a free Barton 2800+ (AXDA2800DKV4C)--266 FSB model. Now, I know the Barton is capable of a running at a 400 FSB (effective). My motherboard is as well. My question is this: In theory, if I had PC3200 RAM, could I run this chip at 400 FSB? I have the C version (266 FSB), but should this even make a difference? Aren't all Barton Cores capable of 400 regardless of being a C,D, or E? Currently, I'm running the chip at 13 X 166 (completely stable, idles @ 34C/low 40's load)--bios even identifies it as a 3000+. I was able to go a bit higher--13.5 x 166, but pushing it to 14 X 166 is too much--even with a voltage increase to 1.725. Perhaps i should up the voltage higher? Any overclocking advice would be appreciated. |
Since I only have PC2700 right now, I know I will never be able to push the FSB to 200 mhz (tried that already). Furthermore, pouring more money into this system would not be a wise decision given its age. So, in theory, if I had PC3200, could it be done? Thanks
