    hey everyone, i have an AMD Barton 3000+ XP
    it is currently sitting at 13X166+2171MHz

    i wish to up the FSB to 200 and lower the multiplier to 11.

    i was wondering 2 things, will i have to up teh Vcore? and will changing the FSB to 200 change teh AGP or PCI configurations? :confused:

    i have this motherboard.

    any help will be much appreciated.

    oh yes and i also have 1Gig of PC3200 RAM

    200*11 = 2200 so you shouldnt have to, tho a little may be required.
    It shouldnt chnage the pci/agp speeds as the nforce2's use a PCI/AGP lock to kep freqencies at 33/66 mhz.

    How old is the 3000+? If it was made after week 39 of last year then you'll be limited to changing FSB only. The codes on your chip will be able to tell you this. I would be surprised if you had to raise the vcore, a 3000+ should be able to do 3200+ without a hitch.

    tbrh with u guys its a 2800 barton with 12.5x. i just jumped it up to 13x as a 3000 sounds fancier than a 2800. and i also got a bit more oomph out of it.

    also, i dont really have the cash to buy a new hsf right now. would my Tt Volcano 9 cope with the 3200 although its rated for a 3000? its only running at 3000rpm give or take.

    As long as the MHz actually increased when you did that (with locked processors you can change the setting in the BIOS without it having any real effect) then your processor is unlocked, you should be able to get a 2800+ up to 3200+ on stock volts too, though mine couldn't and I had to feed it more. I was gonna do it anyway though :D You'll probably be OK with that HSF though I would look into another one soon, watch your temperatures. More than 50-55°C at full load is getting dangerous IMO.

    thanks, it overclocked perfectly but im really gonna need a new hsf. the temp got to 52 while running 3dmark03 so i had to boost the fan to full rpm.

    would u say ur zalman gives better performance than an slk900?

    im looking for a new cooler and want a really good, quiet one

    thanks :thumb:

    Quite probably not. Read my comments in your other thread.

    ok....im at 11.5*200=2300 but im on default Vcore voltage. will i need to put the voltage up and if so what to? im scared to do anything that requires a lot of cpu power right now :(

    thanks

    my Vcore fluctuates between 1.616 and 1.696

    That's reasonably impressive :D Don't be scared about putting load on your system, run something like Prime95, otherwise you will have no way to test stability. An overclock is useless unless you know it's stable. Run it's torture test, and if you crash, raise the voltage until you don't. Or you could go the other way, and raise the vcore to the highest you're willing to go, then overclock as much as possible within those limits. I'd advise getting another heatsink first though, I hate to think what your temps are like now ;)

    hey kameleon thanks for all your help. its stable now. i upped the vcore a slight bit and it runs great. at least i think it does. ive ran the 2 cpu tests on 3dmark 03 and its ran smoothly.

    and my idle temps are 44/38 and on laod it goes to 52/40 max

    hmm, at 11.5*200 my games didnt seem to happy. i kept getting error reports. and them shutting down,

    this may be due to lack of voltage being supplied or memory timings :confused:

    any help would be lovely.

    and sorry for this nonsense from me

    I'd say it was due to not enough voltage, the CPU tests in 3DMark03 are far from stressful on your system if you're just running them on their own. Get Prime95 and use it's torture test, it'll let you know where you are ;)
