AXP 2400+ overclocking question

How much overclock I can expect from retail AXP 2400+ with bundled HSF and ABIT NF7?

  1. Below is my sig from the Amdmb forums. It would probably run higher, but there are problems with high FSB's, having the CPU interface enabled, and using the 10 & 10.5 multipliers. There are people working on re-writing the BIOS to solve this right now. There is MUCH more info on this in the Amdmb forums. i like the board though...and it seems like all nForce 2 boards have one problem or an other.

    AMD XP2400 @ 227x9.5 L12 Mod CPU Interface Enabled
    Abit NF7-S rev 2.0
    2x256 TwinMOS PC3200 Winbond CH-5 dual channel
    Highpoint RocketRAID 1520 2-Channel Serial ATA RAID
    2 WD Raptor 36GB SATA in RAID 0
    PIONEER A0-4 DVD-RW
    Lite-on DVD-ROM
    Lite-on 16x CD-RW
    ATI Radeon 9000
    Windows XP Pro SP1

  2. I want high clockspeed instead of more FSB, because I'm limited by memory (I'm using 2 x 256 MB Kingston PC2700 CL2.5 DDR). I want something like 150~160 x 15. Is it possible with retail cooling?

  3. possibly. Why not try more like 170mhz fsb or 175mhz, pc2700 should be able to run those speeds, with a little voltage.

    170 x 13 = 2210

  4. I haven't got this CPU yet. I may buy one Dec'03 or Jan'04. I've heard that newer AXP packaging prevents nForce2 mobos from unlocking the CPU? Is it true? So I'm thinking that I won't be able to use multiplier lower than default (15).

    BTW, my PC2700 isn't Kingston HyperX or Corsair XMS. It's Kingston ValueRAM. I also want lower latency like 2.0-2-2-5.

    My mobo overvolts RAM by default. It doesn't let me run memory lower than 2.6v (0.1v higher than default 2.5v)

  5. I'm not sure but I believe the new package is only applied to Bartons. AMD ceased production of Thoroughbred-B so the new package shouldn't be applied to them.

    Me fail English? That's Unpossible!

  6. Captain Obvious suggests speeds of 2200+ Mhz is too high for a stock cooler unless the chip overclocks really well!

  7. The nf7 will unlock all l5 multiplyer bits, so you will be able to run high multi's

    But why dont you just get a barton?

  8. I may use this processor later in 266 MHz FSB mobos that aren't overclockable at all. So I need decent stock clockspeed. AXP 2600+ (266 MHz) isn't available here. My gaming is very much limited by graphics card, so I don't care about extra 256 KB cache.

  9. barton 2500 = 11 x 166 = 1833mhz

    14 x 133 = 1862mhz

    You can still run the barton spitfire...your motherboard WILL allow using multis over 12.5x

  10. What about older mobos? They don't unlock multiplier without physical mod

  11. BTW, is there a chance of getting a better cooler with retail AXP 2400+ (compared to retail 2500+), 'cause 2400+ runs at higher clock speed?

  12. I think you will get the same heatsink with both. My XP2400 hits a brick wall at 2170 mhz. Maybe if I were to go over 1.81 volts it would run higher, but I don't have the cooling.
