Default Overclocked XP1600+

I am absolutely amazed by this CPU...

For $53 shipped ( Newegg ), I am running at 1760MHz!






You can find a full image ( 357k worth ) of the CPU core ( showing stepping ) here:

I tried going above 165FSB, but the system was not stable and wouldn't overclock much beyond that...Looks as though a pesky NIC or the temporary graphics card I'm using is holding it back...

Once I find some time, I'll pull them out and try again...

One thing is for sure, I'm a happy camper...

thats a definately nice clock. i got the same cpu from newegg, but i didn't unlock mine =/. i can't get past 150, at 151 computer boots fine, but internet browsing is much slower. i think its my crappy nic. oh well. tried 166 where pci bus would run at 33mhz and agp 66mhz but no go.

That may be the limit of the cpu if its not unlocked!!
I havent unlocked mine yet, and Ive got pretty crap RAM, so Im not in for much FSB overclocking, hoping I can unlock and raise the multiplyer a bit. Highest FSB I can get stable if I use AGP 2x not 4x is 142MHz, if I use 142 + AGP 4x UT2003 freezes. When I get some spare cash and the prices on good ram come down then I can try a bit harder

Great OverClock Pelly, keep trying

I've got an XP 1600+ from Newegg running on an MSI KT3 Ultra2 w/ 512 MB Samsung PC2700 memory.

Currently running @ 1.9GHz, 180 FSB, 1.875 VCore perfectly stable on air with a quiet 80mm 30 cfm fan. I'm pretty happy.

I've taken mine up to 1875 on default voltage. Right now I've got it underclocked to 1.2 as there's no performance increase with this PC133 RAM. I can't take it farther than 1.8 due to lack of multipliers and obtainable FSB speeds. I'll probably snag a SiS 746FX when it's released and go from there. This, of course, depends on when the 746's are put up for sale. Shouldn't be long though, they go into mass production within two weeks. Gotta love that $53 bucks shipped.

Well before you do anything, what's the processor's stepping? It's not gonna do you much good to upgrade cooling and ram if the stepping is generally a low clocker. Also, about cooling. What's your processors temperature?

hmm..i can't tell you much, don't feel like taking off the heatsink..out of as3.

is there anywhere to find that out using software? i can tell you when i bought it off of newegg though, i purchased it on august 14, 02. eek checked the date from rma request off of newegg, scary exactly a year after my last computer purchase from newegg.

You can use SiSoft Sandra to tell you the CPU temps...As for the stepping, the only way to tell is to pop the heatsink off...



Have you tried removing that NIC and then trying to overclock higher?

Sometimes, really picky PCI devices ( even AGP graphics cards ) can hold-up an overclock...Experiment and see if you can identify the "weak-link" in your system...

hmm, can't believe i haven't thought of that...what is a stable idle temp i should be aiming for?

Typically, I like to keep AMD CPU's idle temp anywhere from 35-45* C......45 is a bit high if you're using a fixed-rate fan...If you're using a heatsink with a "Smart-Fan", the loaded temp should only fluctuate a few degrees so its OK...( fan speeds up to compensate )

The loaded temp should be 55* or less ( I aim for 50* )

What make/model heatsink are you using to cool your cpu?
