    2200+ overclocking....

    Hey All,

    I was just wondering how many of you out there have an Athlon 2200+, and what you have gotten your clockspeeds up to?

    Currently I am using the Epox motherboard as in my sig, and I know it is fairly adequate for overclocking. I have 1GB (512x2) of Samsung PC-2700 so it is definatley running fast enough as the board only runs at PC-2100.

    I have gotten it up to 1901MHz with a FSB of 140MHz. it is the only setting that doesn't cause windows to hang, etc...

    I don't have the L1 still locked.

    Any advice on getting it higher?

    Thanks to those who are still running such an outdated processor.

    hehe...

    Hey, I'm still running a 2500+ overclocked I have it up to 2.3 stable. I've gotten it up to 2.5, but it was running a bit too hot for my liking.

    If you haven't increased your CPU voltage, this will definatily help you OC speeds. It will also make it run hotter, so make sure you have a good fan and HS. Increasing voltages isn't too dangrous, as long as you do it bit by bit and watch your CPU temps while under load. It will increase your stability massively.

    Any questions, feel free

    Oh, and why is your name Intel_Dude, but your using an AMD? Just curious

    Likely that is the Thuroughbread rev A core like my 1800+. They released that core up to 2200+. The new core, the rev B, was for all the ones running at 2400+ or faster. As some of the speeds of Palamino (I think that was what the first AthlonXP cores were) cores ran out they started selling the Theroughbreads into the lower speed ranges. The 1700+ was usually the rev B and overclocked like mad. The 1800+ was not. I was dissapointed that I could only get 1.833Ghz. That is likely what your problem is. Like me, you got stuck with the rev A T-Bred and it sucks for overclocking. You might try getting a new CPU. You can still find AthlonXP 2500 for pretty good prices, but really is it worth putting the money into that system. I'd just save up and go for a new motherboard and Athlon64. These Athlon64 3500+ 90nm chip are just great!

    Thanks for the replies,

    Well I had it up to 1930MHz but I can't seem to get it that high anymore, 1901 seems to be the most stable.

    I do have the voltages up (both core and memory) just slightly and my temps seem good.

    I am thinking that I probably have the Rev A. core and not the B like Todd a mentioned.

    I will probably just work on upgrading, but really my PC doesn't seem to be too bad. I haven't really ran into anything that wouldn't run on it.....especially with this gig of ram and the newer video card. Until my system starts choking Im gonna sit tight. I need to eat and I can't eat motherboards

    What is the default core speed of the 2200+ anyways? 1.8GHz?

    Thanks for the help guys,

    Jay

    I think so. My 1800+ was 1.53Ghz, so 1.833Ghz was still a 300Mhz overclock. I guess that was not too bad, I was hoping on over 2Ghz minimum.

    I eventually got an AthlonXP 2500+, which also runs at 1.8Ghz and had it running at something like 2.32Ghz, but Doom3 did not like this speed. I would run fine all day long in any other game, but Doom3 crashed just installing it. I had to take it down to 2.08Ghz to get it 100% stable again. Another thing that pissed me off is I am getting some sort of interferance (airborn or in the wiring) in my upstairs where my main machine is. When a second system was in the basement, it ran fine at 200Mhz bus with that AthlonXP1800+ at 1.8Ghz, but up stares I could not get any of my 4 sticks of PC3200 to run stable an 2 differant motherboards rated for 200Mhz busses reguardless of the CPU speed or voltages on the memory or CPU. My new Athlon64 system though runs fine at these PC-3200 speeds.
