    The subject says it all. I'm ocing my Barton 2600+ [512kb cache]. I'm at 190*11.5 since my multiplier is locked. To get to this fsb i had to raise my vcore to 1.75, and i wan't to raise it more becuase i'm not fully stable. Can anyone give me the max vcore for this chip before i fry it ? Thanks in advance.

    Oh btw....can/should I increase any other voltages, and if so, by how much (and what is their relevant max) ?

    according to amd the maximun vcore recomended is 1.8volts. some guys has pass that limit like 1.85,1.9volt is not like your cpu is gonna fry right way but the risk is very high.
    also you need a good psu that give stable voltage to your cpu.
    so another thing what memory you are using that has to do a lot with stability in overclocking due to the fsb/ram ratio you cpu is 333mhz fsb so your mem should be the same (pc-2700 or higher pc-3200).

    because 2600+ is 2.13ghz ovc to 2185mhz is not much i think even with stock vcore (1.65) can handle that increase so i think the problem is some where else!..

    hope i help

    other thing set your fsb/ram ratio to 1:1

    First, my stock speed was 1917MHz not 2.14 .
    My RAM is OEM non-branded crap 2700 but it's underclocked to 304MHz, so it shouldn't cause any problems i guess...

    I meant 1909Mhz for stock speed sorry... stock is
    CPU 166*11.5 = 1909 Mhz

    oh! ok try to boost your vcore to 1.8 or closer to see how you do!! if it doesnt get stable with that i think the problem is your memory sticks!!

    i use to have and abit nf7 rev.2.0 and 512dual channel generic ram pc-2700 (generic mem are not that good supporting high fsb) i had a lot of crashes and run prime95 for stability it halt just seconds after it start. then i get a pair of geil ultra platinium pc-4400 (550mhz) and walla!! it work..

    but try with increase vcore
    remember not to pass 1.8volt try to set it to 1.775 or closer to 1.8v.. if still not stable try to get better ram!

    some other thing are you sure that you are running and xp 2600+ barton fsb 333 and 512kb l2 cache because those are 2.13ghz not 1909mhz as far as i know
    theres a 2600+ thourgbred core (fsb 266) but i dont know the clock speed of that one maybe that the one you got..
    try runnig cpu-z or theres and amd utility for cpu id.

    let me know!!

    the thouroughbred core runs at 2.13ghz. The barton core runs at 1919/1909 Mhz somewhere there.Thanks for the advice man. Btw i'm stable at 190*11.5 :) Happy enough for now
