Thread: Overclocking an XP 2400+ with air cooling?

    Sounds interesting:)

    I just read on another forums where a guy with an SLK-800 was claiming he had his 2400+ at 2.46GHz or equal to a 3100+ :smokin: :smokin:

    Ambient temp is gonna be my problem, but the more I read, the more hopeful I am that the 3000+ should be achieveable from a 2400+.

    Well after my very short time w/ one I wouldn't rule out XP3000+ as possible given that that CPU is the norm for the ratin' (soz but he turned up here @ 11pm one night half tanked with all the parts so it was easier to assembly it while pumpin' coffee into him and havin' a few myself I didn't take a pic of the CPU sticker, stupid me also left the camera at home on a recent long drive). And ya wouldn't quite need the speed of a proper XP3000+ either as the FSB would be well over 166MHz anyway which adds a lowering wildcard on the actual speed vs. PR thing. : peace2:

    Ya know I think that ya may have a chance with the Volcano 7+ (or better and maybe case airflow, but I don't know what case ya have and it just maybe ya case holdin ya back) to get that to 166MHz. :devil win

    Hey Wiggo, just found another Aussie at the Futuremark Forums with an SLK-800 who managed to get his 2400+ to almost 3200+!! That's mighty impressive on air cooling! He had to use a Vcore of 2.05v though

    Wiggo, does the 7+ require to use the power supply cord like this image?

    I use up all (1 for dvd-rom, 1 for cd-rw, 1 for master hd, last 1 for the slave hd), only two other different cords left but don't know what they for.
    One of them some what like a square with four holes (two on verticle and two on horizontal):

    The other one I don't know how to describe it. Mine is a 350ps.

    Yes it does (unless ya want to find out how quickly a mobo will burn out of course) ;)

    In fact no fan (except chipset coolers) should be powered by the mobo for stability reasons as well. But by all means let the mobo monitor them. :)

    Not that one as it's only for P4 use mainly, use the normal molex connecter as shown there as that's what I do. :D
