I have the Soyo SY-KT600 Dragon Ultra Plat MB. Gonna buy a 512MB stick of PC3200 RAM. Now I just need to settle on the CPU. I've read so much I'm dizzy so this is gonna be it I think.

Here are my choices. Pleas tell me IYHO which is the best/easiest to OC.

Thanks

The mobiles are the easiest to overclock. The 2500 has typically been the most popular, but I'd prolly say the lowest wattage Barton will give you the most headroom. I haven't had personal experience with the low wattage ones, only a 2500 mobile.

The mobile 2400+, 2500+, and 2600+ all max out around the same speeds.

I would suggest you get a 35w 2400+

I have the 45w version and its a great CPU.

Be warned if you overclock you void warranty

I would never recommend overclocking anything unless you are a seasoned user and prepared to take the risk.

Many here are overclocking Holics does not mean to say we should all do it.

I would go for a 3200+ Barton core it has the 400 FSB and is the fastest XP processor there is....I checked your board and it seems to support it

http://www.soyousa.com/products/proddesc.php?id=256

IMO it makes best sense to go for this rather than overclock a lower spec processor....prices on XP processors are dropping and the money saved buying lower spec to the 3200+ is negligable

yah but the 3200+ barton is still 200 bucks as opposed to the 35w 2400+ mobile that's only 85 bucks. and everything i've read has said that all of the mobiles easily overclock past 3200+ speeds.

Its extremely easy and not an issue when overclocking to atleast 3200+ speeds. The CPU wont even break a sweat. There is little to no voltage increase at all when clocking at 3200+ speeds.

As long as you dont push the CPU too far, you will be fine.

I have been overclocking for a while and I havent blown or fried anything yet (and I have done some pretty stupid stuff).

The 3200+ barton is NOT worth the money compared to a mobile 2400+ if you are willing to overclock.

As stated overclocking voids warranty

3200+ has a 400FSB I doubt an overclocked lower CPU (clocked to 3200+ speeds) would be as fast or stable as the 3200+ probably burn out faster too.

Set the Vcore to about 1.55 and treat it just like a XP3200 , it will never know the difference .

The 35 watt 2400 is such a great CPU. I just wish I had better cooling and a little mor voltage because I could easily hit 2.6 ghz. With some good water cooling I think 2.8 is reachable and maybe even higher. Get a 35 watt if you can still find them.
