I have been reading some threads over at http://hardforum.com and that's how I found out about the mobile Athlon XPs. I figured, heck, it's only about $90 so i ordered one from newegg.com.

I ordered the 2500+ model and installed it. Very nice chip.

I think this screenshot says it all. ( sorry for the slow load ).

crop? What is that? Nyar is right though, you should have cropped, it would have saved us from some waiting, and then you wouldnt have had to block out that aim window :lol:

I never really felt the need to overclock a CPU. I did one time feel daring and overclock a intel 233mmx to run at 243. I didn't actually mean to, just it was one of those jumper motherboards. And of course I couldn't find the manual and the board wasn't labeled so I guessed. Was a good running computer for its time though.

I goes, over to newegg and looks at price.. All I can is DAMN!. What kind of cooling did you put on that badboy? Now, I'm thinking of getting one. Hell, if you can get that speed out of the 2500. I might buy the +2000XP and OC that one. Only will cost me 60 bucks. Or do they bartons OC better than the Thoroughbreds?

bartons own the older XPs in OC-ing.

but if you want to OC like this dude be sure to grab the mobile 2500xp.

as for cooling just a good hsf would delight you.

(regular barton 2500 is like 70, now 2.2Ghz so easy to achieve)

ALSO, i have the mobile 2500+xp processor in my laptop, do you guys think there is a way i can "upgrade" my heatsink and then oc the chip? or could i oc it and not worry about the heat to much.

exactly, You also need good air cooling. I have a thermalright SP-97 and a 92mm vantec tornado.

Watercooling on the other hand could get you way above what I got,
