2400+ @ >2.0Ghz

    Hiya Soupladel... if you can do it, the 2400+ will run ok at an FSB of 200
    with a 10x multiplier. But I currently cannot even get another 50Mhz out of
    the CPU no matter how I screw with the FSBxMultiplier combos and I did try
    taking VCore up a bit (no higher than 1.725 - I'd rather have it 'stock' and
    working than dead!). Good power supply is critical, the actual wattage is
    less important than that current it can supply on the various lines.
    Especially +3.3 and +5 as these supply the devices on the motherboard,
    notably power hungry AGP bus devices and CPUs :¬)

    I have the XP 2400+ running fine at 2GHz (100x20) although when i put the
    FSB up by 10MHz it came through post fine at 2.2GHz but wouldn't load

    Yeah, pretty much the same story here.. I think we both hit the same problem
    at the same speed on our processors: limit of the core. But... if someone
    knows better, I'd LOVE to hear about it :¬)

    I also tried it at 2.2 or close to by various combinations and even lower
    than that but higher than 2.0 with the same result as you.. when I tried
    even 1Mhz higher than an FSB of 200Mhz, regardless of multiplier though, it
    failed to POST at all. I gather I can probably go higher on the Vcore than
    I did, if I like.. but I was not willing to risk it unless there was
    evidence to suggest that the 2400 is likely to go any faster.

    I have to say that putting up the vcore would probably work on mine i just
    haven't tried it, it is currently runnig with a very low 1.5 and no
    stability problems!

    I have tried various other voltages just now and the first that would allow
    windows to boot was 1.6, it is still running at 57c with no load though!

    Why are you guys running a 2400+ at 100 FSB speed (100X20)? It defaults at
    133 (133X15). I have mine running at 150 (150X15 = 2250).

    No worries, Midnight :¬) Easy enough mistake. And I am pretty pleased with
    the performance and stability so sometime after the weekend (I work
    weekends) I might mess about some more.
