Same socket

Athlon XP 3200+ is the fastest AMD processor for socket A (462). This processor has Barton core with 512 KB level 2 cache. It is one of a few socket A CPUs that support 400 MHz Front Side Bus. This processor is the best upgrade option for socket A motherboards that support it, though it does not have the best price/performance ratio. Being the fastest socket A (462) processor, it is probably one of the most expensive socket A microprocessors at the moment. To save money you may consider upgrading to Athlon XP 3000+ instead - it's only a few percent slower than the 3200+.

Posted by: romeo

is it possible for me to use this processor, my motherboard doesn't support fsb 400


Response: No. Even if this processor will run in your motherboard, it will run at slower speed, so it doesn't make sense to upgrade to it.

romeo's question

2006-11-19 14:38:22
Posted by: Tomas

Romeo, it depends what processor you are running now.

If you fit this Processor to a FSB333 motherboard it will run like an Athlon XP3200 FSB333. It will simply clock down.

If you are running a slower processor like a 2200 or 2400 for example you will benefit from the upgrade.

I've got a 2800XP now.

Thanks in advance.

Response: Sorry, I don't have data on your board. Upgrading from 2800+ to 3200+ not worth it - you probably won't notice the difference.

The 3200+ XP is the fastest one in production

2007-03-08 11:15:00
Posted by: John L

Although there is documentation about a Barton 3400+ XP, and some BIOS strings included its ID, it never existed "in the wild" -- in other words, it never went into production. I scoured the countryside high and low for quite some time to obtain the fastest Athlon XP and eventually discovered the 3400+ is akin to the mythical Unicorn. I've no doubt that it was on AMD's development "roadmap" and it's even possible some prototypes were made, but production of it was likely overtaken by development and marketing of other processors by AMD, and the sunsetting of Socket A.

Because the CPU in my computer right now is an AMD Athlon XP 3200+ Barton 2.2GHz Socket A. Processor Model AXDA3200DKV4E. It's an OEM version, meaning it didn't come in a fancy box with a heatsink and fan. I got on NewEgg on November 30th, 2004. I paid $179 for it.

It may be showing its age now, but it's mine. It is my precious. You cannot have it!

Response: It will run up to 20% faster in some applications, but on average you'll see about 10% performance boost

Good operating tempatures.

2007-06-11 09:05:49
Posted by: Joshua

I often worry about the tempature of my CPU as I see it often reaching 55C after the computer has been on for a while, I am relieved to hear that this is in its operating range (your site says 0-80C). Now, I understand that colder is better, but is there an optimal, or perfered temp that I might be able to attain without upgrading to liquid cooling? (I jst can't afford that atm)


Response: 55C under load is ok. Usually you should keep it under 60C. Post in the forum for suggestions on how to reduce the temperature.

Correct Setting on Asrock K7NF2-RAID

2007-07-13 06:00:06
Posted by: Patrizia C.

Hello, I have to mount this CPU on my new Asrock MB, I see that this board supports 400 MHz Fsb, so should I set the jumpers to this value and set the multiplier to 5,5, or is it better to set the board to 200 Mhz and multiply with 11??
This because I am not very sure of the meaning of double data rate for the fsb..

Otherwise, can it work also if I set only 400MHz Fsb and no multipliers at all??

Thank you in advance!

Response: Usually you shouldn't set the multipliers on the board or in the BIOS - the board should recognize the CPU and set them automatically. If you need to set the FSB/multipliers then set them to 200 MHz and 11.

AXDA3200DKV4E wtih stepping AQZFA0334?!

2007-07-23 00:53:12
Posted by: Bernie Seyfert

hi to all,
is this a genuine XP3200 (Barton), 400 Mhz FSB?
Also there is one thing missing sticking out of the board one end of heat die. I´ve done a little research and I have seen many XP3200 looks exactly the same like this one. (all say AXDA3200DKV4E on the sicker).
But Iám not sure if this CPU is the "real deal".
0334 says 34 week in 2003. So it must be an early typ/model.
Any thoughts from the expert/s?

These do not exist.

The standard "highest Socket A" is a Barton 3200+, but not at 2.2Ghz.

AMD made a vendor-specific 2.3Ghz version for HP's d325 desktop computer. It was a normal Barton 3200+ core, but at 2.33Ghz, and a 333Mhz FSB. It also featured a different (blue colored), 9 bladed cooling fan at a slightly higher than normal RPM.

This 3200+ has the old brown wafer which can be unlocked with a simple lead pencil. I used to have a 2500+ that had a brown wafer which I unlocked the multipier with a few traces. I ended up selling the chip. This is the first time I have ever seen a 3200+ on a brown wafer. I've had three myself (on the same system) and installed a dozen in other computers, they were all on green wafers.

Z3146683 20287

Stepping is: AQXEA
Production: 03 35 XPMW

I recently sold this CPU on EBAY as a genuine 3200+ Barton 400FSB, as it had been in storage for several years after being taken out of my old Socket A motherboard. I had bought it as an upgrade cpu and I am sure it was working correctly at 2.2GHz at 400 FSB.

However, the person that bought it said that he could only get it to work at 1.8GHz and he had tried another 3200+ cpu and that worked ok.

As i no longer have a Socket A mobo to test it on, i just wondered if any one can confirm from the photo if it is a genuine CPU or if my "buyer" was correct and its a fake?

I normally have a good memory for these things, but i carnt remember back 6 yrs ago.. if i got it to work at 2.2Ghz ! Doh!!
Many thanks in advance

I have read of a similar issue that was resolved by upgrading the BIOS with the latest version available from the vendorčs website

What is the "D"

Just wondering if there is any difference between on AXDA3200KV4E and AXDA3200DKV4E, so what that "D" means? Any performance improvements?

Response: AXDA3200KV4E does not exist. People sometimes make mistake and miss letter "D" in the part number.

I've been using my XP3200+ with a thermalright SK7 all copper heatsink since 2004 mine is an OEM cpu and it's locked. It is paired w/a FIC AU13 Chameleon Pro Motherboard, since only the AU13 MAX came with onboard raid, I added Sil680 raid add-on pci card and 2gig's of Kingston Hyper-X dual channel PC3200 400MHz DDR Memory. The temperatures on this cpu have alway's been in question since the board has a winbond temp sensor that makes contact w/the cpu from underneath it., temp's have read lowest at 52C & 68C at it's highest on a hot summer day and it averages 57-64C's playing games. I have tried different socketA Heatsink types with no luck., the motherbard doesn't have the 4 hole heatsing design so no hope for a bigger an newer heatsink. I have a newer Intel E6420 Core2 Duo Windows Vista PC but I prefer this old Windows 2000 SocketA Xp3200+ machine my everything/everyday PC. (new is good you know....but... OLD is BETTER).

I have been looking for the baddest EPOX board to match the fastest Barton Socket A, and was able to burn out XP2000 and one EP-8RDA, in the process.

I have finally come up up with a vintage EP8RDA3+ and a Barton 3200 at 2.2 G, and getting a pair of matched dual channel DDR which are in scare supply in the Philippines. I plan to activate the 3 DDR slots to 3GB soon, and find the some 256- 512 Agp on sale.

My kids think it is old is useless, as the newer mobo are Quad and all but, I told them most of my vintage pc are P4 AMD 2.2 and Intel 3.2 , and stable, for another year or so.

using it as a Windows home server, working fine

what a great processor- it was one of my first builds and I was surprised when I (literally) dusted off the motherboard and stuck it in a case that everything would still work

I run the 3200+ on a MSI KT6V with 2 x 512Mb Kingston Value RAM, since early 2006.
The CPU is cooled by a Thermaltake "Silent Boost" and it runs at 45deg in 21deg environment.

Even Photoshop CS3 runs fine on this system !

pros: very stable, fast enough for my needs

cons: the VIA chipset dont work with 300Mb/s SATA drives !

First is the best

My first build was an Abit AN7 with the XP3200+ chip. I switched to a 939 mobo and cpu which recently burned out. Dropped the AN7 back in and still works great. Upgrading to 3gb RAM and all is good with windows xp and a GeForce7600GS AGP video card.

Works like a charm

recently upgraded to this from a similarily clocked thornton core. Though I got the "Sempron 3300+" I'm pretty sure its virtually the same thing as "Athlon XP 3200+"..cpuz reports 2.2 Ghz 200/400 FSB w/ 512K cache.

Paired with my GForce 7600GT it does starcraft 2 great which is great considering its a new release now and this cpu is 5 or 6 years old. hah

I had one of these CPU's paired with an ASUS A7N8X-X motherboard. I got that computer in about 2004 and ran it until late 2009. It was always perfect and never let me down. I just wanted a little speed boost so I bought an AM2 system as I don't think I will ever go to Intel unless I really have to after having the Athlon XP chip. :D one of my favourite chips that I have ever used. It used to seem faster than my Intel Pentium 4 3.2Ghz system as well. :D

Following the previous post, I made this processor and cpu combo my choice for gaming...yes gaming. I have two systems that run this processor/MB combo along with FX5950 graphics cards. I run win98 and xp without any problems. I decided to assemble them so that I could/can run older games that I am very fond of. The list of games is extensive. Dos box would not run them nearly as well as this setup would. I wonder now, after 3 years of having this set up if Dosbox will run them as smooth as these dual boot machines.
