    Thanks for adding the motherboard to the sig... it helps out when troubleshooting.

    Now... first off, my old AVIA T-Bird wasn't a 266MHz version either, but it would surely run it. Since the AXIA is a later stepping, it should be able to handle the load with no problems. No guarantees, of course, but it's very rare that they can't hang.

    The first thing I'll ask about is the memory. Are you using two sticks of 512MB or four sticks of 256MB? I'm not familiar with your board, so don't know if it has three of four DDR slots. If it's four sticks, then that could very well be the problem. The four slot boards that came out don't always do well when all the slots are full.

    Is there some sort of jumper on your motherboard that switches from 100MHz base FSB to 133MHz base FSB? This is a very populat jumper on the KT266A based boards and it would definitely explain your inability to get beyond 110MHz on the FSB. Make sure that it's set to 133MHz base speed and you should be able to go higher. I still think that the 10.5*133 would be a good starting place if this ends up being the problem.

    Other than that, it could be a component that is not happy with the higher FSB speeds. The first culprit to look at is the NIC card if you have one. These little devils are notorious for holding you back during a hardcore FSB overclock. Sound cards will probably come in second on the list. Most other peripherals will be able to handle the punishment.

    Keep on going! ;)

    No that board only has 3 DIMMs, http://www.msicomputer.com/product/d...el=K7T266_Pro2 , but I do know there there was a prob with the USB controller givin' up at around 147MHz FSB though I think this was fixed with a BIOS update.
    Internal modems can be a problem too. Ya not using generic PC1600 memory are you? :smokin:

    I'm using 2x 256MB and 1x 512MB DIMMS all are the same PC2100 Infineon DDR

    ... Darth wouldn't I want the jumper set to 100MHz (effectivly 200MHz BUS) because thats what in my BIOS and when I goto 133MHz it won't boot, probably because I don't have that cpu ;)

    Yes you will need to move the jumper to the 133MHz FSB to use it as your stepping to the next AGP/PCI divider and this does it so just lower the multiplier and change the jumper. :smokin:

    Ok so starting low for stability... the multiplyer for 1GHz using 133MHz FSB would be 7.5 ?

    Some motherboards have both a jumper and a BIOS settings for this while most others have one or the other but if you have both then make sure that both are in the 133MHz setting. :smokin:

    Ok I looked in my mobo manual and theres no mention of this jumper you speak of :smokin:

    so I'm going to assume it's only in my bios, I'm goin for it right now so hopefully I'll be back ;)
