The baby performs slightly better than an Athlon XP3000+ according to SiSoft Sandra 2003. Please note, that I've NOT unlocked the CPU, I've only changed the FSB. Furthermore it's runnning in single channel mode on a 256MB stick of Samsung PC2700 (DTL).

<b>CPU</b>
Dhrystone ALU: 9222 MIPS
Whetstone FPU: 3737 MFLOPS

<b>CPU Multi-Media</b>
Integer aEMMX/aSSE: 13652 it/s
Floating-Point aSSE: 14399 it/s

<b>Memory</b>
RAM Int Buffered aEMMX/aSSE Bandwidth: 2414 MB/s
RAM Float Buffered aEMMX/aSSE Bandwidth: 2377 MB/s

At the moment I'm using my old GeForce4 MX440, so my 3DMark2001 score does not say much, but for the record it's just below 8000 using Windows 2000, which places me in the top 6 on Futuremark's online resultbrowser among people using the same graphics card and Windows 2000.

And your clock speed is 2.4GHZ, right?
I hope you can use more comparison results, to similar P4s at least. I wonder if it can manage a tie to the 3.06GHZ P4 with HT with PC1066.
Also the fact this is not even with Dual Channel, makes it all the more exciting, so I hope you can get some real results when you get the extra stick in, and might be able to unlock and raise the FSB all you want with the same clock speed. It'd be interesting to see what a similar Barton with no 512KB L2 but with 200MHZ would do.

That's great. What is the fsb speed? So all you did was raise the fsb?

You're using water cooling right?

<font color=red>The solution may be obvious, but I can't see it for the smoke coming off my processor.</font color=red>

The mentioned SiSoft Sandra scores was made with the FSB at 164 MHz, i.e CPU running at 2460MHz.

I raised the FSB, set the memory timing very agressive at 6-2-2-2T and raised Vcore to 1.85V.

Yes, and a very potent one. I'm not sure how much water-cooling is contributing to my overclock. In fact I just managed to run 3DMark2001 SE with the FSB at 150 MHz (CPU running at 2250MHz corresponding to a XP2800+) with the <b>stock</b> Vcore. This means a lower temperature and thus a good air-cooler would possibly be sufficient.

I've just managed to obtain a 3DMark2001 SE score of 8300 with the FSB set to 160. This make me second among systems with GeForce4 MX440 and Windows 2000. The guy in top spot has 8427, only 127 points more and he's not even able to run <b>ALL</b> the supported tests. He running with a 188MHz FSB.

Hey man that deserves major congrats!
Damn your GF4 MX now seems to perform like a Radeon 8500 in 3dMark!

But will you try raising further?
I am sure your watercooling can give much more than just this! I expect you to reach 2.6GHZ at the very least before instability occurs.

Yes, it's funny to see that my slow GF4 MX440 is now able to beat even system's equipped with GF4 Ti4600 ;-))

Don't count on it, I don't expect much more than the current 2460MHz, at least not with only 1.85V, which is the max. setting in the BIOS. BUT I'm sure that an unlocked CPU would do better, thanks to the higher bus speed. Also I'm not sure how much dual channel operation will contribute in 3DMark2001 SE.

I have 2 sticks 256MB PC3500 DDR SDRAM coming my way, if not tomorrow it should arrive monday the latest.

So my Asus A7N8X mobo is soon going to have it's first dual channel run. Unfortunately I will not be able to try a 200MHz FSB and dual channel DDR400 operation due to certain "limitations" in the lastest official Asus A7N8X BIOS.

If only somebody could mail me an updated BIOS capable of unlocking my XP2400+ ...
