  • Successful CPU upgrade for the 1XXXin1 Family Games.

    Ok... a while back their was talk about upgrading the CPU for the 1XXX in 1 Family games none red box version.

    the 533fsb P4s where tried and did not detect correctly.

    So most went with a Celeron CPU 2.8 400FSB.

    NBA JAM, MK II and Narc all ran like crap.

    so over on the XXXX in 1 Mod site some of us decided to try the old hard to get 400fsb P4s.

    P4 1.8 256k 400FSB was tested and provided good results.

    P4 2.2 512k 400FSB seemed to play all the games well.. including NARC and NBA JAM

    2.4, 2.5, 2.6 & 2.8 all confirmed working !!! these are all the 400fsb version of the P4s

    However I am concerned that excellent.com said the 2.4 is the highest, since it could overload the board.... this still does not make sense to me...

    The Celeron version of these chips really suck hard due to the limited L2 128k cache !

                yes it is just a chinese installed win2000 drive can mount it on any pc

                would get a usb to ide connection as it makes editing alot easyer as you can mount or unmount with out having to reboot. the system.

                i use easyide but dont know if it will becalled that globably.

                Self-Image to make a image of original hard drive so always have copy backed up as factory that i can revert back to at any point.

                with pspad to edit as its a very versital freeware script editor

                im trying to keep the software used down to freeware the only software you might need to buy is partiton magic if your going to add a bigger hard drive

                its a new growing project all are welcome to join help and enjoy.

                i have set this site up to help others as when i started looking there was nothing on the subject just a little bits of code here and there.

                oh this only works with the xxxx in 1 games family pcb dont have any information as yet on the red box but if there is any please feel free to post it.

                all are mods are tested by users first before they get upgraded to guides.

                and if you need any help just ask we are all after the same thing to modifiy our xxxx in 1

                    the software you could grab from someone. But it is made specifically for the hardware (specialised board with the jamma connector on it) so it wont do you much good.

                      I have a heap of brand new Celeron 2.5 cpu's that will slot straight in...

                      Also higher speed spu's may stress the board mainly because the P4 header is not used... if you manually add it it should be OK....

                        well every one who has tested the Celeron 2.5 has said it dient improve the games lagging issue.

                        have had the p4 running under load for over 5hrs with no issues all games are not lagged

                          From 1.7Ghz to 2.5Ghz = big difference.
                          Using a P4 over a celeron makes little difference... Its all about the Mhz

                            GameDude....

                            You are somewhat correct. And no disrespect intended.

                            2.5 celeron is a big improvement over the 1.7

                            However, the 128k cache on the Celeron CPU's doesn’t cut the cake!

                            While MHz are key.. They don't mean poop when the CPU can't process the instructions quick enough.

                            The 512 cache on the full P4's allows the CPU to process instructions way faster then a Celeron rated at the same MHz.

                            I had a 2.8 Celeron installed before the P4 and not all the games would work at full frame rates... Narc still was running like junk and MK still dropped frames.

                            That’s when I decided to do a little reading on the posts on here by jabz, yourself and others from months back. Another gent on MaNiAc-Uk's site managed to get a 1.8 P4 400fsb 256cache to test and noticed a big improvement. This is when we all decided to try other higher clocked P4's to see if it fixed issues with the games that ran slow.

                            It was found that a 2.2mhz 400fsb 512cache seemed to run all the games just fine. Then it was onto the 2.4,2.6,2.8 all of which ran 100% fine and detected perfect by the board.

                            I decided to stick with the 2.4 MHz 512k 400fsb P4 and have no issues running Narc or NBA Jam in all is glory while the 2.8 Celeron (400mhz faster, but less cache) could not due the job.

                            You could be right about the strain on the board, which maybe the reason why excellent said the limit is 2.4 as per Jabz post.

                              Noob here. My question is; Is this what I need to get my 1066 in 1 working correctly?
                              http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....MEWA:IT&ih=008
                              Also what would be a fair price to buy one and is it just a matter of swapping over the old chip for this one?
                              Any help app.
                              Cheers Gav
