Thread: AMD XP3000+ Barton Overclock potential.

    Hi guys,

    Does anyone have experience with this particular Barton? I'm wondering how well it would lend itself to overclocking. Any percentages, like 10%? 20% maybe? Or even a whopping 30%..

    Also, will they run at 400MHz FSB (Multiplier adjusted to still come out on stock internal clockspeed) and how far could they go in this mode?

    Any practical hints, stories etc. are welcome. Thanks!

    The XP3000+'s do overclock and with an nForce2 mobo should get at least 10 x 200MHz which should be the same ratin' though 10.5/11 x 210MHz should be entirely possible with the right memory and voltage settin's.

    You basically have the same chip as me but it fell into the 3000+ bin at the factory and mine fell into the 2500+ bin! :D

    Anyway, take a look at my sig. My guess is you can reach the same or higher speeds than I have with the right cooling and memory.

    I have a Volcano 7+ laying around here to mount on it when my order arrives ;) So I think the cooling will be alright. If what I read, this cooler offers great cooling potential. However, the 3000+ tray was kinda hard to get, so I ordered an 2800+. About 80 euros cheaper, and I'm sure I still can let it run at 3200+ specs ;)

    Wow! What are the specs on that machine?
    I just bought a 3000+, a pair of Corsair PC3200s and an A7N8X Deluxe, but my most daring move so far was setting my BIOS timings to aggressive. :cry:

    It runs on an Abit NF7-S with a 9800Pro and is Prometia cooled. 23,000 3dmarks.

    2.8 GHz is nothing for a Barton. On Overclockers.com they have a list of the most overclocked AMD's, and with Liquid Nitrogen (-196 C) Cooling they hit 3.5 GHz.

    Uh, -196c sounds a little extreme to me.

    Screw that, i'll run a P4 at 3.6ghz air cooled and save a **** ton of money. AND the P4 will still be faster...partly due to the 1200fsb...
