Thread: 2500+ Overclocking




  1. Default

    I'd just try reinstalling the Silent Boost. Take it off and see if there is a whole rectangle of AS on the bottom of the silent boost. If theres too much, and its gooped all over the sides of the CPU, clean everything off and reinstall with less AS. If there isnt a perfect rectangle of paste on the bottom, use some more.

    I use the silentboost and, I have a AreoFlow. They both perform the same temp wise in my situation.
    But the silentboost is much Quieter.


    I have had slk900U,800U,800A and the silentboost is just as good.

    Ya know if you put a delta on any Heatsink it will preform good.

    If I where to but a new HS it would be the ALX800. And just put the slientboost Panaflow on it.

    Just my 2c:rolleyes2

    ive reinstalled HSF's a few times, and there is a square of AS3 on the heatsink when i pull it off...ok, but the centre of the 'as3 square' is mostly clean (free of as3), and if i look from the centre to the outside of the 'as3 square' gradually there is more thermal paste. its a bit hard to picture.

    It kinda seems you're CPU is not a very good overclocker. That can easily happen. Now I wouldn't suggest getting a better HSF since that will probably set you back about 30 to 40 bucks to get a very good one. Instead you should try selling your chip for the most amount you can get and buy a 2500+ Mobile AMD chip. These are guaranteed overclocking champions. The reason is that these chips are the best of the 2500+ CPUs being produced.
    Why you ask? The reason is that in order to conserve battery life notebook CPUs have to work at lower voltages. Mobile AMDs work stable at 1.45 V instead of the normal 1.65V Bartons work at. Now the best part is that since notebooks have to change speeds constantly depending on computer activity all of these puppies are unlocked! So if you had bad luck with your purchase, you're guaranteed to get a chip with a high OC potential if you buy an Athlon XP-M 2500+.
    People have reported being able to reach 2700MHz on air cooling alone! Now that's totally mind boggling! These chips are on a league of their one. I would suggest you look into this before coughing up more dough on a better HSF.
    You can read more about these facts on the following link:

    I have read several articles and threads about the amazing overclocking potential of AMD Mobile CPU's. I can't believe nobody is talking about them here.

    I was lucky enough to sell my current Barton 2600+, which by the way was locked, to a friend of mine in Costa Rica for almost the same amount as what I'm paying for my new chip. Luckily enough he hasn't read about the mobile AMD's and their overclocking potential in Desktop systems.

    For those of you who haven't read about this, AMD Mobile 2500+ are actually the best of the AMD Bartons 2500+ being produced, because they are able to perform at lower voltages, 1.45V instead of 1.65V, which is a must for notebooks. All 2500+ chips are built the same way, but the ones that pass the 1.45V test in stable conditions are marked and distributed as Mobile chips. Since notebooks change speeds in order to conserve power these puppies have to be unlocked. So if you buy a mobile 2500+ not only are you getting the best of the 2500+ CPUs that being produced, but you are also guaranteed to get an unlocked processor.

    Now here's the best part, people have reported being able to reach 2700MHz OC speeds with these CPUs, and this on air cooling alone! Now that's kinda the limit, but your almost guaranteed to reach 2500MHz on decent air cooling and without having to raise Vcore as much as with Barton chips. For 2500MHz a Vcore of 1.75V is supposed to work just fine. Since your working with lower Vcore settings temps are also kept lower. The beauty is that these CPUs cost only a few bucks more than normal Bartons.

    At first I was thinking about getting a water cooling kit for my setup but now I can't wait to get my Mobile 2500+ chip from newegg and check how far I can push my system with a better HSF (I'm also getting a Swiftech MCX-462 Heatsink with a Thermaltake variable speed fan pushing from 26CFM to 72CFM). Since ambient temps here in Costa are on the high side I will see if in fact it is true that a 2500MHz OC is as guaranteed as they say.

    I will report back with benchmarking and temp results as soon as I install it. For now I would appreciate it if anybody that has tested these chips could post their results or experiences with Mobile chips on this thread.

    In case anybody wants to read about these chips and their amazing potential you can find more info on the following link:

    Oops I pasted a thread I had posted earlier by mistake. Sorry about that. In any case if you look at the bottom you will find the link I was referring to.
