I have an Athlon xp 2000 and an Abit AT7 MAX2 raid board, 512 ddr400 ram, OS XP home. I want to overclock it a bit but i do not know which values to change in the bios below is what I have any help from you experts out there would be appreciated
CPU Operation speed: 2000 +(133) CPU FBS Clock (MHz):133 RATIO (FBS:AGP:PCI) 4:2:1 MULTIPLIER Factor x12.5 speed error hold :disabled enhanced for benchmark:disabled
Core Voltage: 1.750v DDR Voltage: 2.55 CPU Command decode: at Fast
which of the above can be altered to ease it up to 2100 or 2200 cpu,
Also increasing memory beyond 512 does it make a differance? I know it didn't in earlier versions of windows
Hmmm depends on what you overclock really doesnt it. My Athlon XP2400+ is still running at its default speed of 2GHz but it is on a 400MHz FSB (200X10) with the RAM in sync and with a Vcore of 1.65V it gives just over 1GB/s of extra bandwidth between the processor and the RAM than if it was running at its default 266MHz FSB. Current temps on this fine day are 43.5C and that is air cooled with a 4500RPM fan on the heatsink at 100% load crunching the UD agent.
I am aware that it really is not worth the hass. that is not the point , i just want to try it out for myself, all i asked for was the answer to which figures i should alter if you knew not a lecture on if it is worth it or not
I have a 1600xp+ and have run at 1900 for two weeks but dropped it back to 1700 never hade any probs when working no extra fans or anything special Heat never moved from around 39c. But if you have a 2000 Why do you need to Over clock it
