Thread: Cheapest Setup For A Nice Rig

  1. #1
    Mobo Supporting AMD & 400mhz FSB (i like a7n8x) 80.00
    AMD BARTON 2500+ 85.00
    PC3200 RAM

    Go into bios, set your FSB from 333mhz to 400mhz, and enjoy the great 2500+ trick... See, AMD locked multipliers... but a 2500+ is a 333fsb x 11 proc... 400 x 11 = the 3200+ proc... It seems AMD repackaged 3200+'s as 2500+'s to save manufacturing costs...

    works fine with stock cooling, stable as fuck

    heres a screen shot from this

    thats a 2500+ proc clocked with the 400fsb, reports as a 3200+

    now I have talked to servel people that have doen this thinking about doing and you can't beat the prices what do you guys think
