oc 1800XP+

hi. recently i've closed L1 bridges on my AMD 1800XP+ cpu. everything went well. i've checked the cpu with "wcpuid". it's working at 1668,75 MHz, but the name string field still shows AMD Athlon(TM) XP 1800+. the same string occurs during boot-up... Shouldn't it be Athlon 2000XP+? Does this string depend on the real model of cpu, or on the multipler value? i've got A7V333 MB.

  1. hmmm, thats strange. The read speed should depend on processor speed. I know that my 2000+ overclocked to 1800mhz showed as a 2100+ and when I hit 1850mhz it went upto 2200+.

  2. That is strange... maybe the BIOS overrides the name string while maintaining the higher speed... you can check if there is a setting inside the BIOS to shutdown automatic (CPU) speed recognation and set everything manual.
    The latest version of WCPUID is 3.1a... check if you got the latest version.

    My dual-PSU PC is so powerfull that the neighbourhood dims when I turn it on :eek:
  3. Perhaps this is only the case with mult. change? However I have my 1800+ at the same speed via FSB change and it still says 1800+ everywhere aswell (boot string, wcpuid, pcmark, 3dmark, and Sandra 2001-2003)
