just out of curiosity, what's the fastest anyone has clocked 2500

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I got the Barton 2500 and was curious what the fastest anyone has OCd this cpu at?
Never done it before and I'm very tempted to try it out (2 years later, as I'm getting more comfortable with tweaking things on my own now).

I had one clocked 24/7 to 2.4 on air cooling. 2.3 - 2.4 on air would be a good OC for that chip.

Cooling isnt that much of a factor for the bartons, they dont run very hot. Add as5 to the heatsink you have now and you should be fine. Depending on your ram, I'd say aim for 2.35 to 2.45. You might get lucky and get a bit higher, or get a bad chip and get a bit lower so you'll just have to see what happens. Good luck with it. Make sure to add some vcore when it becomes unstable, those bartons can handle quite a bit of voltage.

hmmm sounds good, i keep hearing good things about this cpu and at the time ill be honest my buddies are the ones that got it for me, so i didn't know anything at all about them.
I'll have to read the sticky threads first to get more comfortable with the terminology ie-vCore and what not...thanks guys

just letting you know that hardware is important when OCing. i have a 2600+ barton, but my VIA mobo really limits me ( im not gonna upgrade the mobo though, i'll just get all new stuff). as for me, i actually had big problems with cooling for a while it idle at stock speeds at 52c, maybe i got a weird chip though. i got mine stable up just below 2.3, so i'd imagine that you could go in the range that their talking about.

I think the highest I've seen here is 2.85GHz but that was a last year.

As long as you keep your temps below 55c. full load you should be ok.

I have a AMD Athlon 2500+

Asrock k7s8x (400DDR-333FSB-8xAgp-5Pci Slots-Xear 3d 5.1 Sound Builtin)

256 DDR - 400BUS Ram - Twinmos

32MB Nvidia Rivatnt (i m not playing games so its okay for me)

In my Board i have no option for VOltage Increasing for my Processor or Ram. So me only set to my ram @ 400Bus and 2.5T and increase my FSB from 166 to 197 and my system is 1836 Mhz to 2167Mhz now. By using the help you frnd gives me on this forum.

My Processor Temp is 40C Average. And Vcore Temp is 1.7 Average. These Temp are also having same values befor i started overclocking. Not my PC is running nice no errors no temp increase up to 40C and vcore 1.7 so plz suggest me is it okay for my pc cuz i have never increase Voltage for my Processor Vcor or Ram and i have a 256Mb ddr ram only.
and if any technical thing i forget to check plz let me know so i check it and got complete solution.
Is it any Dangeour in Future for my Processor because of this minimul hardwares. Or if it will effect my processors life???

Thanks & Regards
