    I just tought to ask, how much have got out of the xp2100+ PALOMINO. I have get it run stable for 1,81GHz! It also worked quite well at 1,83GHz, but the 3DMark2001 didnīt complete the default benchmark. Iīm actually a little amazed, because the CPU temperature increased only a 2-3 degrees (celsius)! My CPU temp is now 48 C at idle and around 50 when stressed. I have a 70mm ClacialTech Igloo 2400 Pro cooler on the CPU. :cool: :cool:

    Yeah, know what ya mean Tomi....running same Palomino
    at 2200+ equavilant with no change in temp............
    Current temps at idle are between 26 & 28c and under
    full stress load {Burn In Test/3dmark2001se at 1600x1200
    running simultaneous for 1 hour} temps only soar to high 30
    or low 40c.
    Haven't been able to OC any higher as core multipliers
    are locked...........any further tweaks on my part to FSB,Voltage,
    etc. just cause bios to reset default. SO........am going to get cheap 1800 revision a/b................and smoke that puupy

    Yo, all i know for sure is waht Wiggo told me earlier and that
    is if you look at CPU they are the ones with a far more rectangular
    Core

    Someone left some details on the steppin' codes for them here somewhere but yeah A's have a very rectangular core while the B is a lot squarer but then after handlin' so many I find it easy to tell just by sight but how others will look at them maybe different. ;)

    'puters with building of/uprading popular combinations of affordable hardware to 'member what da hell am doing when can find da time to tweak mine.............. :confused:


    bios allows me ta bump FSB 1 digit at a time cain't get above 138
    with any stabillity ragardless of other set. including core/mem/vid
    Voltage..........& being a true Palomino..........locked.........not yet willing to do frontal lobotomy :devil win

    Hmm...as a looked the temperature after a longer period of usage, the idle temp is around 50C and stress temp 50-54C. :rolleyes2 :rolleyes2 But itīs still relatively low...! :) :thumb: :D :D :D
