Overclocking: choosing a CPU

Materials:

  • AMD Athlon XP 1700+ Thoroughbred @ XP 3300+ JIUHB 0308/10 AXDA1700DLT3C XPMW(1,5V) – unlocked multiplier – cost 82€
    This is probably one of the best stepping ever produced as today (6.06.2003) by AMD, far away better then JIUHB, JIUGB and JIUCB with the revision DUT3C. The core is using as default only 1.5V instead of 1.6V (JIU*B stepping)!
    When using 1.55V, this kind of cpu is handling a confortable XP-2800. Pushing it to limit (1.775V) let me reach 2500MHz (FSB:200MHz, multiplier 12,5) this is damn a XP3000+ This CPU also outpassed AMD’s Athlon XP 3000+ with Barton core (they run at only 2166MHz and cost 400€). Moreover my CPU is running at 333Mhz or even 400Mhz synchronously with memory
  • Watercooling set from Innovatek bought at Watercooling.de NO I am not a crazy overclocker, but I am SICK of hearing my Volcano 9: you can not stay beside the pc when it is running.
  • Memory 2x256Mb PC333 (=PC2700) Note even better you can buy: PC400 (=PC3200) or PC466 (=PC3700)
