I've been disappointed ever since I found out that Athlon XP bartons have locked multipliers. The guy I got my XP 2500+ says it'll do 3200+ on an NF7-s at stock voltage. I'll have to switch to a mobile so I can lower the multiplier and up the bus speed. I'm particularly looking at clocking a mobile 2600+ over 2.4GHz with a Thermaltake silentboost and using my newly ordered Abit NF7-S v2.0. I should have the right memory too. My black mushkin lvl 2 will do 240MHz with 2-2-2-11 at 3.2v but I think the Nf7-s can only supply 2.9v and I don't want to run my memory real hot anyway so I suppose I could get a real good overclock. I am concerned about whether my 400w PSU "will do" or not. Now that i'm done bragging my question is whether or not I should fork over $30 after selling my athlon 2500+ and buy a mobile 2600+ or just keep my 2500+ barton?
By the Way, Nubius, you won't get your 2400+ XP-M to a 275MHz FSB, so why buy that OCZ platinum?
What I just bought off of eBay!-
Radeon 9800pro 128mb/256bit (r360 core?) = $175
ABIT NF7-S v2.0 with everything = $64
- I'm a happy fella!
