I need do's and don'ts for getting this done.

 

Is it worth it ?

 

I want to OC my AMD XP 2000+ and not sure exactly how, raise the clock speed ? or change the multipier ?

both. Just the multiplier cant get changed much or your system will hang set the fsb to high and you will Hang... not enough voltage.. you will HANG! Not decent cooling.. You wont be able to access your computer for more then 5 minutes without it shuting down to prevent noobs from Lighting their amds up in smoke.

 

Oh yeah, Welcome to the club.. Wave good bye to any friends you had before and welcome to your new life :lol: Just kidding with you.

ok... I have Fuzzy logic that came with my MSI.

 

I can (I think) adjust all three, FSB, multipier, and voltage.

 

...and I hear ya on the say bye bye to friends..... I'm hooked already on modding.

 

trying to get a good pic posted of my system, just finished the luming on ALL wires

 

 

looks pretty clean and I'm sure helps with air flow

If you can spring the extra money, get rid of that 2000+ and get a 2500+ Barton.....if those are a little too much, go for either a 1700+ or 2100+ Tbred "B" core....even the worst steppings of those usually OC to AT LEAST 2100-2200 Mhz.

Yeah howie's right, the 2000+ is not really the best chip for o/c'ing. I've got my 1700+ T-Bred B up to 2.08, and it could go a whole lot faster if my mobo could handle a 400 mhz fsb. It doesn't mean you can't o/c the 2000+, but you wont get more than 250-300mhz out of it, even with better cooling. A 1700+ T-Bred B only cost me $50 @ gameve.com, and another $25 for a Volcano 7+, which keeps it under 50c on the low setting. If you want good cooling I would reccommend the Volcano 7+, 11, 11+, as well just about any of the Thermalright or Swiftech heatsinks with a good fan on it. If you're looking for low noise I might suggest the SLK-700 with a TMD fan.

Go buy a Gallon of Liquid nitrogen... I wonder if a pentium 1 could reach 1ghz with n20 cooling lol! they should try that on techtv.. god knows they really dont have anyhting better to do.

But my best overclock was 1.8ghz p4 @ 3.02ghz Being the TOP clock speed reachable by my p4

I usually run it in and around the 2.5ghz mark

i dont think intel boards alow you overclock :( i cant seem to find the fsb in the bios.

so I could do it ... but it's best with a T Bred B AMD, and to get one of those up and running I'm looking at new motherboard and ram too. which ain't gonna happen.

 

:( <_<

 

...but it can be done to get 1.8-1.9 from my now 1.6

 

back to my original question .... how can I do this ?!
