AMD Athlon XP 2500 Barton

Anyone picked one of these babies up yet? $130 on googlegear or newegg and supposedly easily OC'd to 2.3

Mine will arrive early next week and my new PC sits in pieces behind me. Antec Sonata case, Asus A7n8X deluxe mobo, a gig of Corsair pc3200 dual channel RAM and my trusty old Radeon 8500 vid card. I'm planning on ditching my sound card for the mobo sound.

I've had mine for a few weeks. Got the Asus board as well. Picking up the ram tomorrow, 2x512 pc2700. The system rocks. I haven't OC'd the chip yet. I figure I'll make sure everything is stable first.

I have a 2600, it's sweet. I haven't overclocked it though... I can't afford to replace it if I burn it out so I'm not going to take chances, heh

Had mine for about a month. OC'd to 2.02 Mhz right now, but want to go higher once I have some more time to mess with it.

Yea, I bought retail with the retail cooler so it has the warrenty. I never thought I might apply it if I burned it out doing this....hmmm, does that work? Can they tell you fried it by being not as smart as you think?

mine gave me horrible troubles w/ an ABIT AT7 MAx2, so i had to use the 2200 but the only diff is the front side bus, so i switched...

The Barton core is overpriced and doesn't yield hardly any real world performance gain. Thoroughbred 2400+ please!

Psycho
 
I bought the 2800 and am pleased with the difference from 2400. A minor(?) problem, when I did a bios flash (Soyo Dragon Ultra 400) to recognise the Barton, it shut my memory speed from 400 to 333. I have not recieved a response from Soyo as to why they did that.

Other than paying for pc3200, and being necked down to pc2700, I am pleased with the result.

I am sure it depends on components and apps., but, even booting shows a significant difference in my real world

<i>0001</i>, I have a 2400+ for sale.

My guess is that Soyo "did" that because the cpu runs at a max 333 (166 on DDR). I am not familiar with Soyo's bios, but on my Asus board, the fsb is set at 166 (on "optimized" setting) and then increased through either the "aggressive" setting, or through manual setting of the multiplier. If I set the fsb at 200, the DDR on the cpu does not support it, therefore the entire fsb runs at only 200.

PS: I actually found this out by asking a question on the TFP. As a result I purchased alot more pc2700. I don't remeber who answered my question, but THANK YOU! My system rocks because of the TFP geeks!
