I just built a new system with an athlon 1800+ XP. I need to know whether it is a thoroughbred A or B so I can set the VCore correctly. The writing on it is:

(I don't have the middle number written down)

I looked around and the DLT3C part refers to a thoroughbred A but JIUHB part refers to a thoroughbred B! Help :eek:  !

Maybe there is a piece of software that can tell?

More about : thoroughbred

probably a b because its a fairly recent manufature date.. 0309 refers to week 09 2003.

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?

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, 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...
