Athlon XP 2400+

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have an athlon xp 2400+ 2.0 ghz. I have a thermaltake volcano adjustable speed heatsink, its a very good one, keeps the cpu cool. i currently have my cpu overclocked to 2.2ghz from 2.0ghz. it runs very cool still. but if i try to turn it up ANY higher past like 2.2ghz it wont boot, now i know its not running to hot, its gotta be somethig in the processor that wont let me turn it up any higher? is that so, does anyone know? please help. i know it could handle more if i could turn it up, since my fan can go up to like 7000rpms minute, i bet it could handle like 2.3 or 2.4ghz at least.

thanks

there are alot of other limiting factors besides heat when OCing: your mobo plays a large role, and your CPU may not OC that well to begin with

Did you set the PCI/AGP to 33/66 ?
The Bartons can handle up to 55c @ full load.

the max die temp for bartons is 85 C so do not worry about the temps and increase that voltage. like duke said try to lock you agp, pci bus

I take my Barton to 54* at full load, but I don't let it get hotter than that. Right now, I have VCore at 1.7 and full load with stock HSF and AS5 is 49*.

My RAM really holds me back, though. (I can't loosen timings any further...)

Some motherboards have it locked by default, and some (like mine, and most VIA chipsets) can't lock it at all, but lt you change the ratio of PCI/AGP to FSB. (It'd be like 5:3:2 at stock and you'd want to move it to 6:3:2) You want to keep your AGP close to 66mhz and never above 72mhz, and keep the PCI as close to 33mhz as possible. For stability, having them set a little low is better than a little high.

I have that motherboard. You can set the AGP and PCI frequency by hand 66/33 mhz respectively. Your voltage still seems pretty low. I have to have mine at 1.95 volts to even boot at 2300mhz 400FSB. But I never run it at that, it was just an experiment. I'd feel safe running up to 1.8V as long as the load temp stays below 55C. The max temp may be higher than that, but they dont seem to tolerate it too well.
