Processor AMD Athlon XP 2600 issue

September 26, 2010 at 12:25:33
Specs: Windows XP, 512
Will I have an issue, when I put this processor in my computer? Can I reduce the Bus Speed to 133 Mhz? Or should I have got the AXDA2600DKV3C version?

We need to know the make/model of your motherboard & what type of RAM you have.

"Via Motherboard VT8363"

That's a generic model number. We need to know the actual make/model. Don't rely on software to tell you what it is...open the case & get the number off the board. It's obviously very old though. It only supports 2X AGP & uses PC100 / PC133 SDRAM so it's very possible it doesn't support Athlon XP's newer than the older Palomino core.

There were several versions of the AXP 2600+. They were based on different cores & ran at different speeds. You didn't state which on you have? Don't try it until you know for sure what you have!

AXDA2600DKV3C = Thoroughbred core at 2.13GMHz (16 x 133MHz)

AXDA2600DKV3D = Thoroughbred core at 2.083GMHz (12.5 x 166MHz)

AXDA2600DKV4D = Barton core at 1.917GHz (11.5 x 166MHz)

SDA2600DUT3D (Sempron) = Thoroughbred core at 1.833GHz (11 x 166MHz)

If you put a 166MHz CPU in your 133MHz board, it will only run at 80% the rated speed, if it works at all.

Always best to check before buying, it may not even be recognised, or even show no increase in speed, your money:

The best is an XP 2000+ Palimino 1667mhz AX2000DMT3C £6.00 on eBay:

I owned that same board about 7-8 yrs ago...lol. It supports up to AXP 2000+ Thoroughbred. The 2600+ Barton won't work. Hopefully you didn't pay much for it? Here it is for $14:

Here's the CPU support list for your board:

Really appreciate your help. I see the ebay item. Seem pretty reasonable. I'll probably resell the other one on ebay!! What's the best way to sort the BIOS?

Have you tried overclocking the Thunberbird? You should have no problem getting the CPU/RAM to run stably at 140-145MHz on that board. Also, many of the 1.33GHz T-birds were unlocked, meaning that you *may* be able to overclock via the multiplier as well. For instance, 11 x 140MHz (1.54GHz).

Upgrading the CPU on a system that old is just a waste of money.

Mmmm! Interesting. So I'm really still a complete beginner here. Overclocking? How? Sorry to be a bit nerdless...but please help?
