AMD Athlon XP2800 overclocking problem

Discussion in 'AMD Overclocking' started by Justin Barnes, Apr 23, 2004.

  1. Hi

    Gigabyte GA-7S748-l SKT A SIS748 ATX Sound LAN USB 2.0 FSB400 ATA133 Retail
    Box
    MSI Mx4000-T128 AGP 128MB DDR TV-Out Retail Box
    Kingston HYPERX 512 DDR333 PC2700 CL2 Memory Module
    AMD Athlon XP2800 333FSB 512kb L2 Cache Barton Retail Boxed Inc Heatsink &
    Fan with 3year Warranty

    Using easy tune 4
    Presently this machine is running at 2600mhz with a system bus of 208mhz
    with a divider on the ram therefore ram currently running at 345mhz
    therefore it has been overclocked.

    Why is it Not running at 2800mhz when I purchased an athlon 2800, what is
    the current speed of the machine? I also keep on increasing the system bus
    by 1mhz and it just keeps going higher and higher surely there is a limit.

    Also these processor water cooling system; any good, and do you real need
    one?

    The 2800 is a performance rating, not a clock speed. It reflects how the CPU
    performs compared to "other" comparable processors at 2800Mhz, meaning Intel
    P4's. It's not actually bogus, since the comparison is reasonably valid, and
    people in general buy into the Mhz = power thought process. In my opinion,
    the Barton performance ratings are a little overinflated. A 2200Mhz Barton
    3200+ is a lot closer to a 2.8-3.0Ghz P4 than a 3.2 Ghz P4.
