Pin socket question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
How many pins are there in my CPU (Athlon XP 2800+), and what can I upgrade it to at the most? I have been told a 3200+. My mobo is made by Gigabyte

462 otherwise known as Socket A.

The highest you can go anda socket A or 463 is a XP3200 barton core cpu. You need good cooling if you plan on overclocking the cpu. They are know to run warm. I still have one here in my old rig. I do believe they are Mul locked and you overclock it with FBS, but I also think I read here some where that you can mod the chip so you can unlockit.

Yea, the fastest chip for Socket A is the Athlon XP 3200. However, if you wanted one of the best overclockers for Socket A, you would want to go with one of the mobile chips. The multipliers are unlocked for speed throttling for labtops and they run on lower voltages giving a lot more head room for overclocking. I have a XP-M chip that I'm trying to push to 2.6ish.....

OUCH, that sucks.
Make sure your BIOS supports the 3200+, an earlier version may not support it and you would then want to flash before installing the 3200+.
