AMD Athlon XP 2000+

January 9, 2010 at 13:48:54
Specs: Windows 7, 1.3Ghz / 1.5GB
I was wondering what the max clock speed for OCing a Athlon XP 2000+ would be? the stock is rated at 1667Mhz, cooling isn't an issue as I have 2 option for the system its in, I have a non-stock cooler for it and a water-cooler based CPU cooler for it, I'm just wondering what the max would be for it without frying the chip, could I get it to 2Ghz?

Well, the overcloking process is a process of trial and errors as well....If you know how to reset BIOS, try to increase CPU FSB in steps of 5...when you get to an unstable point, go back for 5....once you reach the "stable" point, download Prime 95 and stress your CPU to test stability....if it crashes, decrease CPU FSB....repeat the whole process until you have a stable OC...

P.S...Watch you temps as well....

Is your CPU's multiplier locked or unlocked?

"the memory is DDR400 Mushkin"

Hopefully you're running it at 133MHz (DDR266)?

Athlon's I've used (using the mechanical pencil).

Just check to see if you can change the multi in BIOS...some 2000+ chips were factory unlocked.

With the VIA KT333 chipset, I don't think you'll get very far with your overclock. Try some of the advanced settings where you can up the fsb and still control the pci bus. You'll be starting at 133/33 and going up from there; don't remember all the settings available but you'll need to keep the pci bus under 37Mhz. Up vCore as necessary and watch temps closely.

I can change the multiplier in the bios, and alright, I'll try it out.
