    First of all, I have to crap the people that I got my barebone from... Don't buy from PCsSuperSite.com whrought Ebay or through their website... Very crappy customer care and service.. Whatever... Any questions you may have about my experience, just msg me...

    My question is.. I have an ECS K7 board and 512 DDR333 ram that does not function on the first slot but the second.. And my CPU does not run higher then 2000+.. When I try 166 through bios and restart my processor works at 2600+..
    Basically, If I go higher than 2000+ my computer will freeze while the Windows XP welcome screen comes up...

    The CPU has a generic heatsink with a not very strong looking fan (I'm pretty new to AMD OC)... So that might be a problem.. I f anyone wants a picture of inside my case to see the cpu cooler private msg me with your email..

    any help is appreciated...

    Is the memory Pc 2100, 2700, or 3200 ?
    the 2100 does not work well with the Barton cpu's.
    That may be your problem, IF that is what you have.
    A7N8X
    2500+ oc to 2306MHz

    stock hs with an 80mm fan,
    temps =38c socket @ idle and
    46c loaded. case = 32c

    rperk8, it looks like he already answered that ;)

    transistance, what is the multiplier set to when you put the fsb at 166 (which should be the default for a 2600+). The problem you seem to be experiencing normally only occurs with bad overclocking. Also, what are your memory timings set to?
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Gee I hate mobo's made by OEM manufacturers just as much as I hate ALi and SiS mobo chipsets but what is the actual mobo model number as K7 begins the model number on over 20 boards listed by them. This thread also doesn't belong in this forum either so it'll be moved now.

    Bought a biostar board for my bother in-law and put my old generic heatsink on it that came with my AMD 2600. Would not boot. So I called tech support. TRY SOME NEW GREASE FOR CPU THEY SAID... Works just fine.

    Hope that helps....
    My system:

    Win XP PRO
    Athlon XP 2600 ( OC - 2.340)
    Asus A7V8X
    GeForce FX 5900 Ultra 256meg (OC - 500/900)
    1024 Kingston PC 2700 (OC - 360)
    2 - 40 gig WD 7200rpm (RAID 0)
    120 gig USB 2.0 Drive
    19" Viewsonic A90f+ Ultrabrite
    Cable Internet

    Sorry for not replying for so long.. I had some chdl projects I had to work on.. Back to subject..

    Minibubba I appreciate your concern in the real issue... To tell you the truth I have no experience in overclocking(that was the reason why I posted this msg in OC section). This is my first amd system, and I want to learn how to OC.. So I can have a more personalized and efficient system... Please help me out with this?

    I can beg if anyone wants to?

    begging is good, I also accept bribes ;)

    Head into your bios and tell us what the multilier, fsb, and memory timings are set too, as well as your temps

    hopefully your ECS mobo will at least give you some of the highlights. but to be honest, you will be much happier with a decent modo. preferably once with an nforce2 chipset. your ram and cpu are fine, it is just that you got stuck with a really lousy mobo. Overclocking is probably going to be out of the question for now. but I know what it's like to be on an insanely tight budget so if you have to stick with your current setup we'll get you straightened out and at least get it stable at the right speeds :)

    EDIT: I did some googling on your mobo, i didn't realise there were so many ECS K7 varieties. If you can tell us which K& mobo you have, specificly, will help quite a bit. Some of them do not support the 166 mhz fsb required by the 2600+ and that could likely be why it is giving you problems at that speed. Also, have you tried to update your bios?

    Jump into the BIOS and see if ya can increase the CPU voltage to 1.7-1.75v and the memory voltage to 2.6-2.7v plus bring the CPU/memory ratio to 1:1.
