MY first/best overclock sofar...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This is the highest my AMD Athlon 2600+ (barton) can brake the sweet spot.

Stock for the CPU is: 1.91 GHz

Overclocked to 2.26 GHZ stable...

anything higher on the bus and it becomes unstable... Heres a Pic..

HT as in Heat?

Yea, the fan on the RX-K7 in always 100%, but i may install a fan in the side of the case cover.

Dude, it's a socket A, pre HT era

Nice OC, 15% or thereabouts. Have you locked the PCI/AGP frequency in the BIOS? With good cooling you could get it to 2.4-2.5GHz.

Give us some details: temps, voltages, cooling. I really liked my Barton 2500 rig

nice
i did an XP3000+ (2.16ghz)
to 2.35ghz on stock cooling
that was pretty hard, so yeah, thats a nice o.c
just keep an eye on temps, AMD dont like high temps (early ones)
and yeah, it is a good idea to have as many fans as possible,
without too much negative air pressure.
but, as many will say, keep pushing, but don't push your limits.

Yea, I think it is locked, but I'm not sure. but for good cooling, you meant by water cooling right?

*Link me to any good air coolers for socket A*


But as far as the details:

CPU core: 52c
CPU V Core: 1.7 V (Default 1.6 V)
Cooling: Thermaltake RX-K7 5000 RPM

Your cooler is ok, I had a 4800rpm spire, the noise wow when I remember.
I think the Thermaltake BigTyphoon is socket A compatible, but I'm not sure it's worth paying 30$ for the cooler, when the CPU costs less.

Anyhow, you need better cooling to go further. See what you can find... I needed to open the case (it had a really bad airflow) to lower the temps by a couple degrees in summertime.
