PLASTIC SURGERY ON AXP!!!

LoL! all that surgery and squinting on a AXP PR1900 -300 to close some bridges and for what? a 66MHz Overclock??? I just got up off the floor! ROTFLMAO!!!

  1. I tend to agree. You'd be crazy going through all that hassle to overclock a 1900+ to a 2000+

    However, the info may be interesting for those that have a 1500+, which might (probably will) overclock far better. I'd like to see Tom (or anyone else) try to unlock a 1500+ to see if it reaches 1700+ or 1800+.

  2. so what ? you can't even do that on a Pentium.

    Anyway, I'd suspect a 1600+ would at least overclock to a 1800+, and that's without mucking about with the FSB.

    The handiwork done by THG is quite ugly though. I've been looking at OC guides around the net and THG's would bring malpractice suits if it was real plastic surgery...

  3. That's not all. 4 ounces of the silver laquer they linked to is $172.95.
    That's nuts!

  4. how much ?! is Tom getting paid to promote the silver lacquer or what ? Or maybe he's painting the entire CPU... from the way he uses the thing it seems like it...


    "Just when you thought it was safe to log on..."
  5. 100 US!!!!That means it will cost me around 500 bucks (RM) ringgit malaysia just for a... silver lacquer?!??!?!!
    can get a CDRW here man..anyway i stay in the country where intel and amd chips are assembled..
  6. ROFL ! Hadnt noticed that ! Well.. look at it this way: say you only f*ck up 2 cpu's before you get it working.. and you add $173 for the silver laquer.. you only spend roughly $1000 to get the performance of cpu that wont be out for ANOTHER SIX WEEKS ! WOW...

  7. I think we may use something else like conductive pen.
    I bought one for $39 Singapore dollar (around US$23), used it on my Tbird sucesssfully.
  8. the gaps in the bridges are now deeper not longer so conductive pens wont work much.

    fine conductive tapes would do it I guess!

  9. ROTFLMAO!! Moron. Go woof up another tree you little Intel geek.
  10. twazz a bit extreme just for that.
    however it shows us how it can be done, and why the good old pencil trick is now sadly beyond use.

    though ive seen much more elegant and cheap solutions around.
    some transparent tape, crazy glue, scapel and a silver marker pen.

    btw...
    he didnt just do it for 66mhz
    he did it to show us how it can be done
    and what benchmarks the xp2000+ will give months in advance.
    kinda nice.

  11. There were a bunch of problems with that article

    They used the "powerful" silverado on a 1860mhz cpu lol, morons. Regardless. A better way would be just to lay a layer of tape over the whole shebang, then take a nail and cut small holes in the tape over the bridges, then just use a silver pen to connect, once connected place another piece of tape over to secure the lines. No need to fill anything with glue or to tape off tracing and [-peep-].

  12. mmm how about a strip of tape, cut so that it fits snuggly between the bridges, then use silver pen over the strip?
    or would the panint spread too much and the tape peel after a while

    i can only hope that latter released athlon XP's start appearing as factory uncut :)

  13. A Rear window defroster repair kit works just fine, although I would admit this would not be worth the hassle for a 66 mhz overclock. More importantly it does show how to do it, and with a little more ambition, much more noticable results can be obtained. This is what I want to see, the XP 1900+ unlocked, multiplier reduced, ( thats right reduced not increased) placed on a leadtek board, then run at 166/166 fsb ( pci and agp still in spec). Everything in spec ( given using some of the new ddr333 memory), and see what it benches at then.

  14. I'm running a 1500+ with the FSB at 160, giving me 1.6GHz (1900+). Fast and stable.

  15. Klipsch Promedia 5.1....yea, that has alot to do with overclocking.
  16. or buying a 1500+ or 1600+ and overclocking the buggery out of it (excuse my language lol)

  17. OC'ing is a joke if you waste all that money and time just to save $50 and gain 66 mhz.

    I'd expect it to be taken MUCH further. >:)
  18. i believe the general issue is that the XP is reaching the limit of overclocking at around 1800Mhz. due to the 0.18 micron process, much like how the celleron and pentium 3 topped out at around 1100mhz.

    thus its proly better getting a 1600+ and overclocking that.
    dont worry. next year we will have 0.13 micron athies :)

    ok, AMDmonkeypup! monkey see monkey do right? :-)

    the real news is that the AXP is a pos has no real thermal protection and has a measly O'clock, I think a O'clocked lil' Celeron 1.2GHz @ 1.6GHz will woop the AXP(PR1900 -300)in most apps.

    "<b>AMD/VIA!</b>...you are <i>still</i> the weakest link, good bye!"
  20. 66mhz eh - well every little bit helps.

    I wanna be a hippie and I wanna get stoned yeah.

    Meltdown this has to be the most retarded thing I've ever seen you post. You can't be serious! XP1900 will beat the P4 2Ghz. XP1600 > lol a Celeron Bro you better retract that statement, just makes you look like more of a DumbAss!

    As for the overclock guess you didn't read the part where Tom couldn't increase the multiplier higher than 12.5x.

    so you think! what do you do meltdown? coz its like you are day dreaming and seing things that are exactly opposite. maybe you should switch your desk near a window that will allow you to see the blue skies and greenry so that you could get normal.

  23. Well then.

    It all comes down to if you want to pay $450 for Intel's fastest cpu, or $260 for AMD's. You could get Intel's 2nd fastest cpu for around $280. Then again you're just spending the extra $20 for the Intel name, and in actually could get a faster processor for $20 less.

    -¤ Shut the f*ck up or go AMD ¤-
  24. Or spending the extra $170 for Intel's fastest.

  25. Nice job little intel geek. Geek see geek do right? :-)
    Yeah, you go for a Celeron. A duron 800mhz overclocked to...nah, just keep it at 800mhz would still beat your celeron. Oh, and no one really cares what you think now do they?
  26. lol 1000 bucks can buy you a scsi dualy and a scsi hard drive. You'd have yourself one kickass dual system with scsi interface for the price of that! lol!
