    This Stepping for XP3000 400FSB? Any good?

    Hi i was wondering if you could give me some info on a new XP3000 400FSb i just got an hour ago, i tried this site http://mp3.zonebg.com/cpu/cpu.php# but the site said the stepping was unrecognizable. This is how the stepping reads on my cpu AXDA3000KV4E Y836155250113 AQXDA0317MPMV well there it is fire away

    that site is so old, yet it still make me angry to the fact everyone credits it, if you want to know what is in the stepping, have a look at the processor descriptions thread .

    btw

    AXDA 3000 DKV4E <-- Barton 400 FSB 2.1Ghz Stock Multiplier=10.5x Stepping AQXCA

    AXD A 3000 D K V 4 E

    AXD = AMD Athlon XP Processor Model 8
    A = Desktop Processor
    3000 = Athlon XP 3000+
    D = Package Type (D=OPGA)
    K = Operating Voltage (L=1.50V, U=1.60V, K=1.65V)
    V = Die Temperature (T=90 Degrees Celsius, V=85 Degrees Celsius)
    4 = Size of L2 Cache (3=256Kbytes, 4=512Kbytes)
    E = Max FSB (C=266MHZ, D=333MHZ, E=400Mhz)

    ok thnx, but im a little confused as to weather this part of the stepping AQXDA, is any good for overclocking like the XP 1700 (JUIHB) was? If i missed it im sorry but i didnt see where there was any relative info? Is there a barton database that can explain how this (AQXDA) part or the stepping overclocks?

    No, not really. It's all about luck of draw. A Barton 2500+ AQXDA can easily be OC to 3200+, so it's highly possible you paid 3000+ price for a 2500+ chip. Nobody can tell you how far you can OC, as you might has read, it's based on many factors, so you'll just have to slap that chip in and see for yourself.

    Yes, there is a database, and I just added it to my sticky.

    Is there any merit to this article http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/dis...322034857.html about the color of the die? Looks like my color is mostly red from all angles but i could of sworn i saw a reflective whiteness when i turned it a certain way (maybe i just wanted to see white) but it sure looked mostly red or pinkish.
