    Overclocking AMD XP 1600+

    I was just wondering what the steps would be to overclock this CPU.

    What Vcore's to set it @ and whatever else I need to do.

    Depends alot on what motherboard you have the chip in, and what stepping it is. I had a Abit KT333 chipset board, w/AGOIA stepping 1600+ Palomino, copper heatsink, 1.75v, 172 FSB, 1806 MHZ rock solid! Just play with it till it crashes, then back off till stable.

    I have a ****ty mobo. DFI AK5-EC Don't know which stepping.

    I got it to 1700+ w/ only a 1-2 degree + in temp. This mobo has a wierd BIOS. Doesn't have a normal FSB option .

    What do you suggest the Vcore be set @ for a 1800+ ?

    My 1600+ is also a Palomino since they did not make the Tbred until the 1700+

    1800+ is only 1553 mhz, it will probably do that easily at default vcore=1.6v The last of the 1600+'s were the best! AGOIA & AROIA (I think?) Anyway they are all Palomino's but the later ones ran real cool and required little bump in voltage to reach nice overclocks. Check your stepping on the top of the processor, then look at the OC database to see what others have gotten. Well over 2000 MHZ is not uncommon with good hardware.
