Oh man this things great i can overclock once again :cool:
This is first boot up too.

Later on i removed my Crucial PC2100 as the max overclock i could get was about 366MHz i ran async like the pic below but gained no performance increase from my FSB. SO my PC2700 is running at 400MHz 3/4/4/9 pretty weak setting but still pulled little under 3GB/sec bandwith in single channel mode and at them setting.

congrats on your sweet acquisition!!

...I'll be getting a Barton peretty soon as well... XP1700 TbredB @ NEAR 2ghz just doesn't cut the mustard anymore...

Yeah love it too bits, the best AMD processor to date..... thats afordable :D

I can get this out of it.

Is that with stock voltage?

07-29-03, 11:35 AM
I bumped up the voltage to 1.8v, although it did do 2.2GHz at 1.7 i kept on bumping up the voltage as i could not be bothred to reset the BIOS, FSB & memory jumpers everytime it failed. I lowered the voltage down to 1.7but it still reads as 1.8v :confused:

07-29-03, 12:02 PM
Ok i am now running at 2.2GHz at default voltage (1.66v reading) anyone know where i can get Prime95 from?

I had to clear my CMOS to reset the voltage :o

07-29-03, 12:07 PM
An excellent toy I must say. Why did you bump the voltage back down? Mine runs at stock voltage just fine but I was told by some folks to put it up to 1.7.

07-29-03, 02:10 PM
lol it's what i did with old processor's lol, yeah mines doing 2.2GHz default voltage even with prime95. However i could not run Prime95 no matter what voltage i used @ 2.4GHz :( oh well i was only expecting the CPU to hit 2.1GHz and here i am at 2.2GHz so i am very happy :) i saved myself 300 :D

I got my motherboard back today!

Your board exploded!?!?!

You scare me, you remind me of my friend who blew my processor, board well pretty much everything. Then again this is someone who can blow a light bulb by just walking under it. You think I am joking but I am not.

Nah. Just fried some component of it, made it completely unresponsive.

Happened to a KT266 board a few months back. Same PSU, so I'm RMA'ing that too.

Well, i have my barton at 2GHZ with stock heatsink/fan and stock voltage... But at the time I overclocked I only had one case fan working, so I thought I should keep it low at 2GHZ... Now I have both case fans working, and I am conidering bumping it up to 2.2GHZ... I'm running pretty cool most of the time (around 31C)..

Heres my 3DMark2001SE score @ 2.4GHz, 1.75v. http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=6822429

nice overclock. Here's the link for Prime 95 if you havent found it yet. http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft.htm

Yeah got it, thanks anyway i can do everything i want at 2.4GHz but run Prime95 lol. Not that it bothers me as my Geforce4 is limiting it quite a bit so i see little or no benefit :(

08-01-03, 03:00 AM
Bumped my Barton up to 2.2GHZ (stock voltage) today.. I don't really notice a difference between 2GHZ and 2.2GHZ..

I am using PC3200 Kingston memory (2x256mb).. Shouldn't I notice a speed increase?

Going to run CPU Burn-In tonight and make sure its stable.

08-01-03, 04:34 AM
Not with that video card of yours, i don't notice much either.

08-01-03, 01:53 PM
Well cpu burn-in did fine... no problems.. i'm gonna leave it at 2.2GHZ.

08-01-03, 06:24 PM
Yeah 2.2GHz is pretty good as it runs cooler due to less voltage :)

Here's my Comanche4 Demo benchmark, hard to belive how cheap and old this game is but it can still bring down any system out there lol. I might go and buy it now as it more playable

Damn..... has anyone played this game with force feeback on? Not an option you want enabled late at night, heck my joystick was vibrating/moving all over the damn place. I better get some bluetac and put it on the bottom of the joystick.
