wowww... so THATS what those numbers mean i'm guessing the 0310's are better.. and so on? the ones made recently are better than the older ones?
What's the difference between Thoroughbred A and B? I'm about to purchase an Athlon XP 2200+. I was told that it's an "A". Is this bad?
It'll be used in an asus a7v8x mb.
TBred-Bs are much better overclockers than TBred-As. Because of this, I would rather have a 2100+ TBred-B than a 2200+ TBred-A. At default, the performance difference between 2100 and 2200 is negligible. If overclocking, the potential performance difference between 2100+ TBred-B and 2200 TBred-A is not negligible.
okay, for an XP 1800+ in a Gigabyte GA-7VAXP board, what kind of OC can be expected? and does anyone know for sure if this board unlocks the multiplier?
<b>Just because I like AMD or Intel more at a time because of one product compared to another, does not make me a fan boy, it makes me a person who is able to make a decision for myself.</b>
1800 TBred-A: About 1.8GHz-1.9GHz depending on overclocking environment.
1800 TBred-B: About 2GHz-2.3GHz depending on overclocking environment.
That's what i would expect with an nforce2 board. I'm not too familiar with the said gigabyte board.
Im thinking about buying a cpu for overclocking, i can either get a 1800xp JIUHB DLTC3 or a 2400xp AIUHB with unknown voltage. Whats the best overclocker? Im looking for about 2.2ghz. Since the 2400 is already at 2.0 im guaranteed atleast 2.1ghz so im leaning towards the 2400, its only £30 more.
I bought it from a guy on ebay, its unlocked and only cost me £40 :cool: have yet to be brave enough to overclock it tho
Overclocking is not an exact science. So, I would estimate, on average, that a 2400+ would overclock higher than a 1800+ TBred-B.
Thanks for the reply. Looking on overclockers.com, most people get about 2.3-2.4 out of the 2400 AIUHB. Ill be buying the new epox 8rda3+ board thats made for the new 200fsb bartons. This setup should produce good results
The 'A'IUHB is better than the 'J'IUHB, as it is used in the higher-frequency chips, and can be the same one as the ones as 2600+'s, just rebadged. They are great overclockers.
You can help. Just send money to the bad motherboard relief fund, for those suckered into a KT166 and SDRAM with their new Athlon...
