    do you remember...many years ago...

    when about 50% of people posting on here had an Abit NF7 s v2.0 motherboard and an Athlon XP2500 from a specific batch which was known to be overclockable to 3200 speeds?

    try tho i have, i cannot find any threads providing detail of the CPU that we were all after at the time, if anyone has this info to hand i'd be very grateful!

    (reason is, i've only recently retired this machine & am about to ebay the mobo & CPU together, so want to big them up as much as possble )
    if it ain't broke...fix it till it is

    Re: do you remember...many years ago...

    That said, I overclocked by Thoroughbred B XP2600+ on a cheapy ASUS A7V8X-X to 2340MHz, which was beyond the stock speed for any T'bred Athlon....

    They were great processors...

    Awesome board, so sad when Abit passed over. Had a nice mobile 2500+ running under water. Could do 2.5 gig on it. Kick the arse of anything In*el at the time

    I seem to remember xp1700's could over clock some way too, least mine did on a AT7-MAX2

    Ahhhh those were the days

    Also the company I worked for at the time were buying xp3200's which turned out to be fakes (1700's OC'd to death - saw alot of those come back faulty)

    Re: do you remember...many years ago...

    Opteron 146 + Asrock DualSata S939 ...the first time I hit 3Ghz

    But yes it was the Athlon XP Mobile 2500 (barton core) that you're referring too. It was just a simple upping of the FSB speed to 166 or something if i remember correctly, to achieve the same result as the 3200.

    Re: do you remember...many years ago...

    Regular Barton chips (non-mobile) could do over 3200+ very consistently. I think it was the AQXEA stepping that started the 'stepping madness' (people paying more attention to stepping down to the week they were made). But that's usually to hit speed well above 3200+ (2.3-2.5Ghz on air).

    I had one of those Zalman copper flower coolers on mine before the first pipe coolers started.

    Ahem.

    (points left)

    I think mine's an AQYHA (after a quick Google). It's not particularly stellar.
