How to OC an old XP 2600+ - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well.. this is a REAL suprise to me. Apperantly when I purchased my XP 2600+ a year ago from NewEgg.com I had gotten an OEM one by my own mistake. Well this mistake apperantly was worth while because they sent me a Moblie AMD XP 2600+ processor! I opened CPU MSR to take a look at a few things and low and behold I can actually change my voltage and multiplier! XD

With this extra bit of knowlage I now have one less thing to do to get my CPU up to speed and maybe even faster if I go liquid cooling instead of air.

Um okay.. whats a CPU/RAM divider?
post #13 of 15
to get a 6:5 ratio ud have to have the fsb of the processor at 200mhz and the fsb of the ram at 166mhz..hope that helps...if u had some ddr400 u could leave it with a 1:1 ratio both havin a fsb of 200...which would be close to ur limit with a barton core

Just to clarify, a ram divider just runs the ram at a certain fraction of the FSB speed (higher the divider the slower your ram runs). I have gotten my 2600+ barton to 2266mhz on a VIA mobo at 1.675 vcore, so those of you can go faster. (if your still looking for a cheap HSF combo, look at the one in my hardware review, it was $14)

Cool thanks. So buy that heat sink and swap the fan with a higher CFM unit huh? That sounds cool and here I was thinking about putting in this Thermaltake all copper heat pipe passive cooler. According to reviews it gets a little cooler then what you got with yours, but then again yours in overclocked and you can't beat that kind of price. By the way, know of a good chipset hsf combo? I just noticed that on my MSI MS-6712 mobo it has just a heatsink for the chipset and I dont feel comfortable upping the FSB with passive cooling.

EDIT: I was thinking about getting a Thermaltake Crystal Orb VGA HSF. I know its made for the older GeForce cards (4 MX and below), but I've put a VGA fan like this on my friend's board when his chipset fan died prematurely and it worked out. This little thing puts out 5500rpms and has a decent price tag for a copper vga hsf.
