    Yes 1533MHz is the stock speed of them.

    We are talking about a 2500+ not an 1800+ dude!! :rolleyes:

    Anyway.....I have a 2500+ and it runs at 2.2GHz very nicely with a 200MHz FSB. That's about a 400MHz increase and is a worthy overclock. I've boosted it to 2.4GHz long enough to run some benchmarks but it wasn't totally stable. 200x11 is the default setting of a 3200+ which costs about 5 time the money! :D

    The fact that the Barton core has the larger cache and higher FSB means that a Barton running at 200x11 (2.2GHz) will outperform a T-bred also running at 2.2GHz 166x13.5 all other factors being equal. It will even outperform the T-Bred runing at 200x11 (2.2GHz) so it's a damn fine processor. If you dumped some cash into a 3200+ you may find that it overclocks higher than a 2500+ but that's only because it's the same processor that AMD tested and found to run better so they slapped the 3200 label on it rather than the 2500 label. A lot of it is luck and keep in mind that the processor speed rating is determined by testing at the factory after manufacture. But you can probably buy five 2500+ CPUs for the price of a single 3200+! :D

    I'm not sure either if the Barton's larger cache causes greater heat but since the die size is larger on the Barton chips you will get a better footprint to your HSF and more effective cooling as a result.

    Make sure you have adequate cooling for overclocking.
