But searching through its archives... I seems that there isn't anything detailing the overclock-ability of the Athlon -1333MHZ.
So for the record, I'd just like to state what I've found.

I should just mention that in my attempts at o'clicking this chip, I was not aiming for the higher o'clock possible really, but for the best overclock not requiring a voltage raise. What I normally refer to as a mild overclock.

Seems the best is 1474. (11 x 134)

At 11 x 135, The system would crash during heavy data operations like defragging and gaming, but seemed to run ok otherwise.

At 11 x 136/7 the system would not boot, too bad.. no 1.5 ghz .

I'll be posting the benchmark differences soon. As well as my total rig specs (read signature), But in a nutshell the best this CPU seems to be capable of at stock voltages is 1474.

As I mentioned, my sys would normally keep the CPU at 8-10 d over the case temp, normally around 44d average, 46/47/50 on a hot day.
Now the sys runs at 49 or so under load, at night.
Just thought I'd give an idea at how much hotter it runs.

So, no one uses an athlon 1.33 anymore, and this will prolly be useless, but I just though I'd share this.. seeing that there's no documented information like this on OC.net
-more details soon.
... Did you up your VCore?

Nah,
As I said, I didnt try doing that, I was aiming for a "mild" overclock as I explained.
My mobo cant up Vcore, so I just have to work on FSB/Multi. If I want to up my vocore, I have to use a wiremod.

I have plans to do just that, but first I have to mod my case, I mean.. I just dont think my 120mm PSU, slot fan and lil stock size fan-(front) can do the Fan/Sync justice.

But I'm thinking now that I'm going to get the mod config, then keep my case open, and ask my friend for some of his Silver.

What kind of case fans do you have in your case? If the cooler can keep the cpu within 5-10 of ambient, it would seem a good idea to try to get the ambient case temps as cool as possible.....

I think you're right friend.
My F/S keeps my CPU at an average 8d over the case's temp. During the day its like ten.
So you're right in saying that it would help, good suggestion .

I have a 80mm fan at the front, and another 80mm fan inside the case (at the bottom of the HDD bay) blowing air up on the drive... I kinda just used some wires to keep up there lol.

And I have a slot fan at the back.
The PSU with its 120mm fan is also sucking air out back.

So thats one 80mm fan in, the PSU and a slot fan out.

Not too good at all, I want to mod my case and put a 120mm fan at front as one person suggested, but I dont have a dremel.
I'd also like to mod the back to make use of wasted space, I want to add 2 80MMs.
The case is a AT tower server, (6 CDROM bays) and three hdd, I also added 3 more.

I'll give pics later.

You know, looking through the internet as I've said, I have seldom really found any detailed information on this CPU I've been experimenting with, the AMD Athlon 1.3 GHZ. (thunderbird).
I'm pretty sure that there are others out there that might happen to have this chip also, and want to overclock it, so I write this (my results) in the hope that someone like myself, wether in present or future who had/has my problem - (finding past information dealing with this chip) will find this thread, I hope it stays in the archives.

I went home sunday, to experiment with my Athlon 1.3ghz chip some more, and I discovered that the chip though really flexible, has limited stability at higher clock speeds, mostly due to its heat dissipation.
I used the ocinside.de pin mod to help me.
My stable overclocks were;
11 x 133 @ stock voltage - 1.77v
11.5 x 133 @ 1.85v
10 x 145 @ Stock voltage.

The chip is very overclockable, but higher clock speeds require low temperatures.
Dont get me confused, ALL CHIPs will require better cooling as they are pushed higher and higher, but the athlon is peculiar in that while a temperature of say 50'c/53'c (though not ideal!) will be quite suitable for the stock 1333 or a little higher Frequency, the chip will crash at 1533 (11.5 x 133 @ 1.85v) - at the same temperature.

It was for this reason that my most stable and fastest o'clock (in terms of PERFORMANCE) was limited to 1450 (10 x 145 @ stock voltages, mine being 1.77v).

11 x 133 showed better results in Sandra's Arithmatic and Multimedia benchmarks (results later).
While 10 x 145 showed better RAM stream performance in Rightmarks Ram benchmarks.
I prefer the latter, so it was 1450mhz for me.

The 1533 o'clock I didnt get to benchmark, primarily because my Evercool CUD-725 Copper heatsync @ articsilver could only keep the chip at 53 D.
But I just feel it in my bones that it would beat the 1450mhz settings.

Mind you, I was running the darn chip quite over its stock speed, and I had the thing under 1.8v, but I expected better.

I'm not at my Rig right now, so I cant give Pictures/exact benchmark results ect, but I'll get them up later.

Remember that the stepping of the chip should have AXIA.
