Today my new CPU arrived, after a journey across the big pond known as the Atlantic Ocean. Its name is Thoroughbred 1700+, a cheap but powerful solution with a great overclocking potential. Its last name is Juicb, I think it may descend from an ancient tribe known as the mighty J-series.

I ripped out the trusty 1600+ from my Asus motherboard, and in came the replacement.

1466 to 2000
Booted at default speeds and voltages, and voila - 1700+.
Ah, my XP1600+ did 1795MHz and I wanted more. I tried setting the 1700+ to about 1850 MHz, and gave it a wee bit of voltage. Booted straight into Windows. I wanted more. Decided that 2000 MHz wouldn't be bad: Presto, 2000 MHz. Tried running 3Dmark, it went fine. Mmm.... mesa likes.

Above 2000
Got greedy, and went for 2100 MHz straight. Upped the voltage to 1.775 and it went straigt to WinXP. No hickups. WOW, this must be good, I thought to myself.
Lets see what she is really capable of. Went to 2150 and 1.80 Vcore. It kept working. Got even more greedy, and decided on 2212. NO GO! First time it didn't post. I upped the Vcore to 1.93, and into Windows it flew right the first time. This is where I am at now... check the picture.

I'm mighty impressed with this chip. I wonder what the full potential is. I'll have more to tell later.

PS.: I'm watercooling this baby.

very nice oc allen.... kinda nice when they go that high right out of the box:thumbsup:

my 2200+asus a7v333 without tweaks stops at 2184 generic memory..ive got two sticks of OCZ PC3500 256MB 433Mhz DDR CAS2.5(Copper Heatsink)-Performance Series comming in the mail...perhaps that will get me a little higher

damn good cpu's... I get the same speed on air. :)

This is the best I got at 1.95v (not stable tho)

I found out that at 2212 my water cooling setup wasn't really sufficient - 70C easily!! :(
I backed it down to 1.80 volts and 2065 MHz for now to keep temps down until I get some better cooling. But the CPU really ain't bad..

:eek: :eek: :confused:
That's odd, I'm running the same CPU @ 2014 and 1.85v. My temp reading is only 47c... with an SK7 and fan quietly spinning at only 2800rpm. That just seems odd to me. I'm relatively confident in the temp reading, since I've let the fan slow down to 2000 or so, and the temp can hit high 50's and still run stable.

Hmm thats strange.. I may have to reapply the arctic silver and see if that helps. :(

I wish I had more voltage options in my BIOS, it seems it can't really decide on what to supply the CPU with. At one point Asus Probe reported a Vcore of 2.13! Too high for me... :eek:
