Yo man
The 3200+ in benchmarks provides a little gain over the 3000+.
But the difference is not SUPER or something.

My suggestion is buy a barton 2500+ and overclock it to 2200mhz
at 400mhz FSB, and guess what, a 3200 for a lot less cash.
Or you can even get a 1700+ and overclock it to that, you'll
have less cache, and a little higher voltage possibly.

I have 2000+ but the thing is overclocked the cpu get too hot and where I live is in my room I mean get around 80 deg + temp, so I was thinking of buying the 3000+ or 3200+ and overclocking the mo**er f**ker as much as I can. See my 2000+ is 1.67 and the cheapest way I can overclocked it to 1.79 Ghz. U see my Problem :p

You can't usually overclcok the old palomino past 2100.

The Tbred B core will go to 2600-maybe 2700. If you want overclocking go witha Barton 2500. Bigger die for better cooling more cache, 333mhz FSB and since its at the bottom of its family your odd's of a serious improvement in clock speed is good.

Make sure your motherboard will support the Barton and 333 mhz FSB. My gigabyte 7vrxp won't!

Barton 2500 is running around $100 w/shipping at Compuplus and essential computers.

If i hadn't just bought the radeon...

If you want to try overclocking the 3200 go right ahead... I kinda wanna see what it can do myself.... but just getting a 2500+ and boosting the FSB is a good idea too. The only problem with the 3200+ at the moment, is finding mobos that support the 400 MHz FSB reguired.

goatman..

friend recently got the a7n8x deluxe 2.0 and he has a 2500+ on the way.

my question is was it easy to get your 2500+ to 10x200? is it unlocked? how about cooling?

It was dead simple, it comes unlocked, I'm using the stock HSF (the one that comes in the retail package). it's also running 2 GHz on stock voltages. If it can't do it right off the bat, try upping the voltage .25 volts at a time, until it's stable.

friggin' awesome. thanks. :D

but don't you mean .05 volts at a time? that's what i've always done... nice and slow so that you don't fry your chip or get excess heat.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
