Question And now, the end is near..Plz Help OC my XP2000+

Hi all,
I have been reading everything I can about OC'ing my XP2000. I am not confident / proficient enough to unlock the multiplier yet, so I am going to go with a straight FSB OC. I have read many threads about high FSB settings using similar components that I have (Mookydooky), so this seems to be a reasonable course of action.


The info I am looking for is:
1. What vcore do I need to run for a good OC result using my swiftech air cooling only?

2. What Temp's can I expect to see / be concerned about?

3. If I push the FSB too high will there be any (immediate / long term) permanant damage to any of my other components? How high is too high for that matter?

4. What should I be looking for on my PSU voltage readings to indicate potential problems?

5. and lastly...Any BIOS setting tips to get max potential? I am currently using the "Turbo" (a.k.a. the "Lazy man's) setting.

Thanks in advance.
My system spec's are in my sig.

My sig might help you for quick reference. Im pretty sure I could probably push my 2000 more if i actually had a decent motherboard. Think my Vcore was running at 1.85v, with +0.2v on both memory and agp bus.

As for question 3, just o/c at a certain interval everytime making sure that the machine is completely stable at that fsb. if it is, move on to the next one until the machine starts to produce abnormalities and / or crashes.

Hope that helps,

edit: sorry, my sig doesn't say what fsb im running at im at 142mhz. which isn't a great deal.

Let's see, since you're going to be running your CPU locked, the only thing that will limit your OC will be the max stable speed your CPU is capable of running.

Your 2000+ AGOIA will probably top off around 1800Mhz or so. Since your CPU is already running at 1666Mhz, there isn't much OCability left. First enable the "Watching Dog" feature on your motherboard. It will save you from needlessly opening your case to reset the CMOS countless times. Next try raising the FSB to 140. That will run your CPU at 1750Mhz. If it doesn't post at that speed, raise the voltage a little. Once you get it to run stable at 1750, try raising the FSB one mhz at a time until you hit instability or it won't post. Again, raise the voltage another tic. Your CPU can probably run safely at up to 1.85V. Repeat the process until you get the max speed you can get at that voltage.

As for temps, you really don't need to worry about it until you start hitting the mid 50's or you start experiencing instability at a specific temperature.

EDIT: As for your hardware surviving the high FSB, I wouldn't worry about it since most likely, the most you will get from your CPU is about 1900Mhz. At that point, you'll be running a 152FSB and about 38Mhz PCI. A little over spec, but not enough to cause any damage. If you start experiencing HD corruption, you may want to back down a little also.
OCing is basically a trial and error process. We keep trying until it can't give any more. Once you reach what you think may the the max stable point, run a few hours of Prime95. If it can take it, then you're fine. If it can't, then back down a little on the OC.

Anyway, give it a shot and see how it goes.
