Overclocked at last

Finally got around to overclocking my venerable XP2100+ which natively runs at 1733MHz. At a whopping (OK, not that whopping) 1884MHz that's a massive (OK not that massive) 9% increase. The same as a theoretical XP2289+ (or nearly an XP2300+).

Not the greatest increase in the world, but noticable. The memory bus still runs at 4:5 so that's 181.25MHz = 362.5MHz DDR (vs. 333MHz standard).


Thanks to Coolermaster, there's no noticable increase in temperature or noise. Wow.

But then 9% isn't much, is it?
