    Hello everybody, its-a-me again

    well, im just going to ask a few questions here. ive just oc'ed my athlon 1800+ and i think it went well. im using an epox 8k3a+ 333 mobo. i raised my vcore to 1.8v and raised the processor speed to 140 (from original 133). now, ive an athlon 1800+ 1.533ghz running at 1.606ghz. the fsb is 290mhz.

    is this anything groundbreaking or still the norm around here? anyone has oc'ed an athlon 1800 before? tell me! and whats the highest and most stable oc for it.

    thanksss :thumb:

    My 1800+ runs at 11.5X166=1909MHz just fine on a Chaintech 7NIF2 Summit board at stock voltage. Temps are a bit high in the 40sC, but it's crammed into a tiny case without much ventilation (yet). What are your temps? What are you using for a HS/F? Give a little more info and we'll be glad to help.:cheers:

    Here's 2 of mine.
    XP1800+ Palamino / 8KA3 - 11.5 x 150MHz = 1730MHz
    XP1800+ Thoroughbreb B / 8RDA+ - 12.5 x 166MHz = 2.09GHz

    look at my specs!
    a bit unstable tho!
    If your proc is an t-bred you can push it a lot further, you just need capable ram, a n-force 2 mainboard, cood HSF and case cooling! You'll be able to get goot results with your mobo... but you cant upper the voltage i think.
    Go see the threads in the overclocking forum, you'll see impressive results!!

    I personnaly think you cans get 11.5 x 166 (1909mhz) :D out of a 1800+ T-Bred B. Maybe more if your lucky... or sadly maybe the opposite.:thumbs do
    I wish you luck!

    The right stepping 1800+ B core will make it to 2.3-2.5ghz before needing better cooling.

    Also I think the reason yours is unstable may be due to your weak power supply.

    Really? Huh, then the 150W PSU I'm using must have magical elves inside it....

    150? Your sig says 250.....

    How old is the 150? 5 years? It can't even have the right cabling needed for todays systems.....or it was a typo.

    No, my sig says nothing about 150W OR 250W...
    Soulburner, my point is, you told Syx (I'm guessing that's who you were addressing, though you seem confused) that his system instability was due to a weak power supply. I'm telling you that I've got an XP 1800+ T-bred B overclocked to 1906MHz, it's rock stable, folds 24/7, and it's running inside of an Emachines case with a micro-ATX power supply rated at 150Watts that's 5 years old. Hell, the case doesn't even have fans. His power supply may or may not be the source of instability. It could be a number of things, but a 250W PSU should be plenty to run a processor that puts out less than 70 watts loaded.: peace2:

    Oops meant syx......well damn, thats certainly something I havent seen before, you must not be running a very powerful video card. I remember everyone going to the recommended 300w supply years ago.
