View Full Version : The best Athlon for overclocking?

07-24-2002, 12:47 AM
Hi Guys

I am about to upgrade my Duron 700@910MHz and I am thinking about XP 2200+/2100+/2000+. My mobo is EPOX 8K3A with 256Mb KingMax DDR333 CL2.5 memory stick. Please, advise me about the best overclocking XP for my mobo – I just heard some not very pleasant things about the Athlon T-bred 2200+. A friend of mine told me to go for 2100+. What is your opinion about that?

Thank you in advance!

I personally havent followed the top Athlons there but from everything I have heard is that the XP 1600+ is one of the best OC'ers around. Im not to sure how high its gotten, so I dont know if it would really be worth getting in comparision to one of the newers.

Just a thought.

Yup the XP1600+ from newegg, you are almost/100% garanteed to get an AGOIA or AROIA steppings, and most of them have seen the 1800MHz and some even the 1900+MHz range
