I wanted to know if anyone has overclocked a duel system in windows 2000 . If you have please let me know or give me a URL to go check it out . I was looking at the AMD-760MP . But there are alot of things I need to know before looking into getting this system . I hope anyone out there can help me out a little .. I don't want to waste my money on a extra chip that would never be used :-)


Thanks

Since I doubt 760MP boards exist outside of fairly tight beta test programmers the answer to o/c'ing an smp AMD board is a little theoretical. The boards are likely to be early and prone to some stability issues so I guess most people concentrate on getting it to work as advertised first off...

The key to o/c'ing a dual system will be symmetry - one or other of your components will hit a limit earlier that the other. If your cpu is the limit then you have increased your possibilites to try and find a fast, stable medium.

If you need dual cpu, I'll bet you are not a gamer primarily - you have some serious apps running, so I am surpised that o/c is an issue for you - surely you want rock-solid performance?

If you want the second cpu because you think it will run Quake faster, think again my friend...

The main reason for this is to play games and to surf . nothing hard core . I also keep hearing bad storys about Windows2000 and games and nothing really supports SMP . I think I will stick with Windows 98 and wait to get a AMD 2000mhz when it comes out and by a vapochill and OC it .Then just get a Nvidia card . Whatever is the best at the time :)  .. So I got time to see what happens :- ) . I want to play games at 1280-1024 at 32bit with 2x FSAA and get at least 100FPS .

If you are going to game then a 1.2/1.3 AMD a GeForce Ultra should be enough - but you might as well wait 2 months and get the 3... ;o)

A good cooler will take an AMD to 1500 and I'm relatively sure you'll find that a good speed - it'd still bottleneck at an Ultra (see Tom's powerbox hitting vid card limits with any top system)...

Happy surfin - and forget the dual cpu - I really don't think it's where you want to be going...

First goto the boards Overview . Look at were you want to go . cpus/motherboards/whatever..

Then click on one .. GOTO the top left you will see a little orange letter click on that and that will send you to the post for whatever you choose to post at :-)

I hope that helps . I am new too :)
