You didnt mention what processor you had...if its Intel forget it cos they dont allow overclocking but if its AMD is it the AthlonXP 2500 Barton core? cos if it is you can overclock that one to run at 2.2GHz (same speed as the XP3200!!) I have an MSI Delta K7N2-ILSR motherboard and it allows overclocking and my CPU has been running at 2.2GHz since I bought it back in Jan 2004 and the temp is a very cool 40 degrees C! I certainly am not complaining but then again the case does house 5 LED fans!! so tell us the CPU make and model and what speed its currently at.
you cant overclock the 3200...thats the highest it can go to so far as I know...cos if the 2500 can go upto that speed why would you need to get 3200 and overclock that? honestly I wouldnt do it...it could go bad...like I said I have not met anyone who has overclocked the 3200...so I wouldnt do it..
I think that because the XP 3200 Barton is AMD's highest performing 32 bit processor there is very little potential for overclocking as it is near the 'limit' already. What I mean is that to go faster still AMD would have to use a smaller wafer size as the smaller the CPU circuitry the less heat produced and the faster the potential clock speed. This they certainly won't do as they are promoting 64 bit processors and so to all intents and purposes the Athlon XP's days are numbered. I use an AMD Athlon XP 3000+ so I can sympathise with you! CW
