Default The Ultimate Athlon Overclocking CPU!

Hey This is Ace! I am searching for the ultimate overclocking cpu for my Socket A system! I am now aware, thanks to Nubius, that regular Athlon XP barton cores after week 39 of the 2500+ do not have adjustable multipliers regardless of whether the mobo has the option of adjusting it or not. I am now looking to see what everyone would recommend for a good overclocking cpu and heatsink. I am especially looking at athlon xp-m 2400+, 2500+, and 2600+ with 1.45 core voltages. I am planning to upgrade to abit nf7-s 2.0 mobo also! Which of these clocks better 2400+, 2500+, or 2600+. Comeon guys I need some answers, quick! And thanks Nubius, ya jerk!

If you want the ajustable multiplier then get the Athlon XP 2600+. Right now i got the 2400+ and i have it running at 2.1 GHz with 3 fans

They all have an adjustable multiplier... The 2400 runs stock on 1.35vcore... and to utilize 400fsb just make it 200x9 which is still 1.8ghz but it will run it faster. I like the 2400... most experiences will be very similar throughout all of them though. You're choosing the right mobo as well... I think the 2400's are the only ones that only use 35watts so that is a plus. I don't know anyone on here with a 2500 mobile, just 2400's and 2600's.

2600+ is what you want. With the correct stepping you can get insane overclocks outta them. Right now i am stuck on 2.6GHz max cuz' of my Air cooling and somewhat lack of skill lol. But with better cooling people have gone all the way to 2.8-3.0GHz. Abit mobo you listed is also what you want almost all the time. A few DFI boards did really good, but it's more luck of the draw with those boards, lots of them have severe problems.

The AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Socket 939 overclocks very well. Seriously take the time to check out this site and see what you think: http://www.anandtech.com/printarticle.aspx?i=2242. It doesn't have any multipliers above x9, but if you visit the site, you'll be quite please with the results.

my 35w 2400+ XP-M will hit 2.8GHz on 2.1Vcore but I even bumped my Vcore up to the max the board allows (don't suggest trying that either folks ) but it still wasn't nowhere near prime95 stable. It would boot with 2.8GHz and I could probably get a screenshot, but when prime95 was ran it'd freeze immediately.

Buuuuut yeah get the 2600+ XP-M wish I had back when because I could probably be having a higher OC with lower voltage =/

Did you say the 2400+ xp-m has a v-core of only 1.35? Wouldn't that be able to overclock even better when the v-core is increased? I am having a hard time finding a 2600+ xp-m on eBay for a good price!
