2.2 is 3200+ speed. I hit 2.2 with my 2500+ xp-m on stock mobile voltage. I ran it at 2.4 with a very small bump in voltage. I can't remember exactly what the voltage was though.
after 2.2 the 2500 M I have here would crash under COD 4 even, that was just with a multiplier bump (Yes I was able to run that game on the 1950 pro here at decent frames in MP even).

Ive about given up on it. Ill eventually return to messing around with it once i get a new machine built of the APU line

Just pick up a XP-M chip. They clock easier and farther then regular Barton chips do. And you can get one for next to nothing on Ebay now. I personally use the Xp-m 2500+. The 2400's are good to. Ask Stinger about them. He is running one.
Damn it!!! For some reason that system is not booting. :banghead: I am kind of leaning toward the video card taking a shit, but have to test it further. I have a DVI to HDMI cable that is known good, but I am not getting crap when I boot. Going to switch over to the 6600 Nvidia card and try again. I hope that is what it is!

2 cents a byte was my favorite :laugh: Here's a project- add up all of the bytes in your PC and see what it's worth :D
- cpu caches
- ram
- hdd
- hdd cache
- gpu memory
- gpu caches

The dollar amount has to be unbelievable!!!

I've heard the mobile ones fair better with overclocking... and i think they came unlocked since it was necessary for the bios to downclock them to save on power.

i think that's what i managed to get mine to by some fluke... managed to get the bus at 400 rather than 333 somehow lol. It was short lived though... Abit's bios update killed the system... 3 hits from lightning didn't help either.

200 (400 Effective) x11 (5.5 Effective)= 2200.

Too bad Via wasnt pushing High End Performance on the AMD platform at the time, even though their kT880 chipset supported 4GB of ram

wouldn't have done any good considering the Athlons weren't 64-bit capable.

Indeed, it's called PAE (Physical Adress Extension), albeit not all benefits of x86_64 would be in effect.

The graphics card cooler reminds me of an audio or video (VHS) cassette. :)

What OS do you run on it, by the way? A flavour of Linux?

Too bad no AGP 8x Dual Athlon MP/XP motherboards were released that enabled full Overclocking capability. Ohwell guess have to write a bios to do that huh
Not for Athlons, but I recall existing some for Opterons.

The graphics card cooler reminds me of an audio or video (VHS) cassette. :)

What OS do you run on it, by the way? A flavour of Linux?
Yeah, one of my friends said the same thing a few weeks ago lol. It's a good cooler, all aluminum, dissipates heat very well.

I dual boot with Windows XP Pro and Crunchbang.

Got more P2/P3 Xeon stuff.

P3 "Pseudo-Xeon" SL4HE 1Ghz/256kb. Basically just a Coppermine in a Slot-2 form factor.




P3 Xeons 550/1Mb SL3C


Intel MS440GX Board

It's actually an OEM board for Gateway, but I flashed the crappy Gateway bios with the Intel one. It's limited to 550Mhz P3 Xeons though, the Intel bios seems to have been gimped to prevent people from flashing Gateway boards to upgrade to 700 or 900Mhz Xeons.


A-Trend Freeway FW-6400/150/WS

Probably one of the coolest boards I have. It'll run both Slot-1 and Slot-2 processors.
