I am getting an 1700+ (@ 1.47) on a IWILL XP333 Board and PC2700 ram, will i be able to fun it at 333 FSB?
Without underclocking, i have a themaltake volcano 7

thanks :smile:

If you unlock the CPU you can set the multiplier to 9x with an 166 MHz FSB you will get CPU speed of 1500 MHz. If you don't unlock it you will OC it much higher: 166*11=1826 MHz, you will need very good cooling to reach 1826 MHz, but 1500 MHz with 166 FSB should be not a big problem, you might need to raise the VCore a bit but it will not be that difficult.

My case has so many fans that it hovers above the ground :eek:  .

getting a 1700+ to run at 25% higher frequecy is pushing it... might be possible with a good chip and excellent cooling.

best way is to unlock the CPU... then u can run at any combo u desire...

see i want something like that too.
i have a 1200C that can get up to 1450Mhz...
i wanna DDR0 capable mobo with PC2700 corsair ddr running at 8.5x166, with PCI/AGP in spec. YUM


Overclocked athlon 1200C @ 8.5 x 166FSB + PC2700 = GOOD! :smile:

:smile: just paid for it yesterday.... waiting of the MB to come in...

i have an aluminum case with three 80mm case fans besides enermax, and a volcano 7, i guess i will find out myself how much OC'ing i can do... :smile:
thanks a lot,

I think, when i get brave enough to bridge those gaps, i will try to get it to run at 1666MHz (5x333) by downing the multiplier to 5

... Also i would like to thank Eden, if he ever reads this for recommending RB computing in ottawa, ontario, canada... though i suppose i haven't gotten everything yet... they were the only ones i run across who really knew what they were doing... and the prices were good!

Wait, the bus is DDR, so it really runs at 166MHz. So the multiplier would be 10 and the FSB would be 166MHz.

umm, oops... yeah i meant that... 10x166... 1666... reduce x to 10 from 11...
thanks,

P.S. what PC2700 ram are u getting???
and once u do, tell us if it works ok at 166(333) with ultra memory timings!

i too want 8.5x166.6 for my tbird 1200C. :)

P.P.S. ive seen some reviews of the volcano 7... and im less than impressed. a decent heatsink with a good idea for a fan, but ive seen better performance from smaller & cheaper units.
plus if u want the fan to run at fulll speed u will have to do a slight temp probe modification.

yeah, i know about the volcano 7, it was only ten dollars more than retail cpu... and thermaltake was the only cooler most places around seem to have, i think i might investigate the 7+ when it gets here as it is supposed to be excellent, but much diff than the 7, with the new traditional design and MANUALLY variable fan...

the PC2700 is corsair :smile:
