    It's based on IPC x MHz. :devil win

    IPC!? --whats IPC mean?

    To answer the original question: YES it is possible to clock the Barton 2500+ up to a 3200+. I know because I have done it.

    It may vary from chip to chip but my Barton has been running very nicely now set to 3200 specs. 200MHz FSB, 11X multiplier, and to top it all off, I only clicked the Vcore up by one small notch and it has been holding at less than 1.7Volts.

    I've equipped the CPU with an SLK-800 copper heatsink and a 4800rpm 80mm fan which has managed to keep the CPU running about 38-42C during normal use and peak at around 46C after a couple hours of Unreal Tournament or MPEG encoding. That data comes from ASUS probe but the BIOS says the temperatures are a few degrees cooler than that.

    my setup:
    ASUS A7N8X deluxe mobo
    pair of 256MB Corsair PC3200
    ATi 9700Pro
    350W Antec True Blue PSU
    Seagate Barracuda 120GB SATA drive

    That translates to a 1.83MHz CPU with a 333FSB being boosted to 2.2GHz with a 400MHz FSB. Not a bad gain for only a few degrees increase in temperature and a negligable increase in Vcore voltage.

    I'd be interested in hearing what luck others have had with this CPU.

    It may or may not hold up against the latest from Intel but if you were to factor in value (bang for the buck) it blows every other CPU on the market out of the water!! :thumb:

    Your running at pretty cool temps there. AMDzone.com was reviewing the EpoX 8RDA3+ mobo (400 MHz offical support), and they used 10.5x multiplier and jacked up the FSB speed past 210 MHz.

    i have the same setup using xp2500+.

    got the fsb 200// 11 multiplier.
    also running mid 30-38 C

    Me? I'm running an SLK-800 copper heatsink and a 4800rpm 80mm fan. Only one fan for case exhaust though....still it stays pretty cool in there but I'm probably gonna place an intake fan up front to help cool my 9700Pro as I start to mess with that next. :D

    Yeah, SLK800 should do more then enough for cooling on any system.

    I've reduced the rpm of my CPU fan from 4800rpm down to 3300rpm and the temp only went up a few degrees C....still staying well below the 50C (highest was 47) mark when loaded and around 38-42 idle. It is vastly quieter.

    Even though those temps are fine I've got a rheostat for that fan and I'll hook it up so I can increase rpm only when I'm playing games.

    ASUS Q-Fan temp threshold doesn't seem to be adjustable to make it automatically increase rpm at a specified temperature.
    Unless someone else knows of a way to set autofan speeds on this mobo?
