One side note.. If you can find a 3000xp Barton 400fsb it has unlocked multi and you can change that multi to the 3200xp multi and then you will have a 3200xp. You're board will even see it as a 3200xp.. I did that when they first came out.. It was a great little find when the 3200xp's where $159 at the egg I got the 3000xp for $129. It's the same processor just the multi is different.
I think only the 3200+ was the 400 FSB model less 2800 and up came in besides the 333 FSB Models.

btw how many of those CPUs are before week 39 of 2003 and you say they are all operational?

Just pulled the plug, should get my 3200 Barton in early May, it's coming from China. I'll be back for more help before then and then, then!

I'm crossing my fingers that I can get this thing working faster, can't be too hard, right?

Anyways, Thanks for the advice and information!

Here is the 333FSB.. It wasn't the most popular one.. I remember a few friends getting the 333fsb and had to send it back to the egg for the 400fsb version. :toast: Oh and most of them work.. but a few didn't make the overclock..lol :roll: I'd have to check for the week.. and I don't have time.. Plus, I can't sell my museum... :p

EDIT: Let me check in my building I have a few more chips out there.. I've got that 3000xp chip some where and if I find it I'll let you know if you are interested. :toast:

Hopefully its a multiplier unlocked model. Btw you may wanna cool the boards NB SB and VRMS for both cpu n ram when overclocking. Most skt a boards needed better cooling for them

ya if u read my sig rig it cant really do anymore than 3200+ / 2.2ghz without stability issue. So not sure if chip, cooling of chip or motherboard. Ram is rated for 250 Mhz

Oh I know it is.. I bought it when they first came out, and it always ran at 3200xp speeds. :toast: It'll go as high as you want it to.. If you can keep it cool. :toast:

I know the mobile chips clock like feins. I was running two of them until recently. I had both running @ 2.4 without touching the voltage on them. Never tried any higher, almost wished I did now. Oh well. I also still have my 3200+ chip along with about 15 asst. other chips and 8 or so boards. The 3200+ and my Asus a7n8x deluxe was running up til this past weekend. My soacket A server still goes and goes and goes. It's like the energizer bunny. It is built around a Abit KT7A-raid v1.3 running a xp 2400+ chip and 1.5 gb of pc133.

I've got an unused system fan 3 pin on my Mobo and I'm gonna pick one up in the next week or so, from my local shop. Along with some thermal grease, for when the CPU arrives. I'll be sure to keep an eye on the temps, I'm pretty sure my heat sink and fan will handle it. Maybe, later, I'll pull the cover and take some pictures.

Everybody likes pictures, no? :)

If, for some reason, I can't make that 3200 work, I will be interested! I figure I may have to play around with my Bios settings to get it going but, we'll see. Somebody mentioned that the cache size won't be recognized by my MoBo. Not sure why it wouldn't, but again, we'll see.

I'm getting all excited about this whole CPU swap! I can hardly wait! :D

It was $23.70 with half year shipping! Or, so it seems. Dude had a 99% feedback score so, I'm pretty sure I'll get it in working fashion. Then it's just on me to get it to work on "This Old Comp," as I'm calling this project.;)

I'm getting this...


Although I don't know what color or design it'll have. I think it might be red in color, I'll have to wait and see.

Oops! Turns out I'm getting the 128Mb 6600gt, and it's blue with the word,"Verto" on the fan housing. At least that is the picture the guy I'm buying it from posted on e-bay.

Anyways, mine has two DVI outs and a smaller heat sink, than the picture above.

I can hardly wait for it to get here!!! :p

EDIT: Right after I posted this I found a picture of it! Or at least a closer looking one, I think mine may have a different fan shroud.

Is your agp or pci-e? Nice card for a agp system.
AGP 4x currently. I'm hoping to find an 8x to swap out with at the shop, later this week. *Crosses Fingers* I'm wondering if any of the kids at the shop even know what an 8x AGP is!

:cool:

Ok! 6600gt arrived today! I'm gonna wait until tomorrow to install it since I don't have a DVI cord, yet. I'm going to the shop tomorrow and I'm gonna beg them for a cord out of some parts bin! I'm also going to pick up a fan to through in on my unused "sys fan" outlet. I'm pretty confident that with that I'll be fine, heat-wise, with the new CPU and the new, to me, 6600gt. Oh, and I'm gonna pick up some thermal grease. Any suggestions on what I should avoid, grease-wise? I've heard that some grease actually increases temps! Don't want any of that noise!

You're probably right. I'm bringing my box in so maybe, if they see what I mean...anyways, I'm gonna ask, at least!

I can hope, right? :(

Artic silver works great on those chips. Just be very careful on how much you use. A small dab will do. I use a credit card to spread it evenly in a very thin layer. Also if you haven't put a heat sink on a socket A chip before. Take you time and do it slowly so you don't crush the core as it is exposed. If you need a shim let me know. I will send you the one I have had that I got somewhere in one of my parts buys and never used.

The Duron and the Barton are similar, no? Anyways, I'll be super careful, thanks. If I need a shim I'll be sure to let you know. I might have one on there I can re-use.

Thanks for the tip, Arctic Silver. I'll ask for it.

So, so long as my buddy, with the car, doesn't flake out, I should have some pictures, pre and post graphics card and new fan. I have a Dart's league tonight so the pics will probably not happen today, posting anyways. I'll get 'em up as soon as I can Thursday.

I was thinking in terms of size and shape. No matter because I think I spied a shim under my heat sink, when I was under the hood yesterday. That was what we were discussing, earlier. Sorry for any confusion.
