    THIS IS MY HARDWARE SET UP - AND THIS IS MY PROBLEM

    300WATT APPROVED POWER SUPPLY IN T3007 TASK INTERNATIONAL.
    ABIT KG7 RAID
    CRUCIAL 184PIN 512MB DDR ECC CAS2.5 2100 REGISTERED
    ASUS V8460 ULTRA DELUXE VIDEO CARD
    RELYSIS TL-570 15 INCHE TFT RGB INPUT
    AUDIGY 2 INTERNAL SOUNDCARD
    A4 TECH WIRELESS KEYBOARD AND MICE
    LITEON 16X DVD ROM
    LITEON CD-RW 40X12X48
    AMD 2100+ CPU WITH THERMALTAKE VOLCANO 7
    WESTERN DIGITAL 12OGB 7200 RPM CAVIAR SPECIAL EDITION WITH 8MB CACHE
    3 80MM YS TECH CASE FANS

    WIGGO THIS IS MY PROBLEM

    DAY OR SO BACK I DOWNLOADED THE LATEST BIOS UPDATE VERSION 8 WITH SUPPORT AMD ATHLON XP 1600 - 2100+ SUPPORT AND BUG FIXES. SO I FLASHED THE BOARD. IT BOOTS FINE BUT WHENEVER I SET THE CPU IN SOFTMENU 3 TO 2100+ OR THEN CHANGE THE MULTIPLIER TO 12.5 OR 13 WHICH IS THE APPROPRIATE PARAMTERS SHOULD BE. I SET THE FRONT SIDE BUS TO 133, SAVE AND EXIT REBOOT - I GET A
    "WINDOWS PROTECTION ERROR" AT EITHER 1690MHZ OR 1700 MHZ

    I ALSO GET THIS IS I LEAVE THE FSB AT DEFAULT = 100 AND IN CPU WHERE IT DISPLAYS CPU MODEL LISTS I SET MULTIPLIER TO ABOVE 13

    AM I CORRECT IN WHAT I AM DOING. AND DO YOU KNOW OR CAN U TELL ME IF THERE ARE ANY PROBLEMS WITH ME RUNNING THE BOARD AT 133 OR IS THIS A MEMORY PROBLEM THAT CRUCIAL WON'T RUN AT THIS SPEED OR IS IT THE PROCESSOR. I AM CONFUSED WHEN IT COMES TO 100MHZ SETTINGS AND 133. THE SETTINGS I CAN GET IT TO RUN AT IS I THINK 122 OR 128 FBS. AND WINDOWS WILL LOAD SEEING THE PROCESSOR AS A 1900+ RUNNING AT 1599MHZ OR 1690. ABOVE THESE SETTINGS WILL NOT RUN??? PLEASSSE HELP ME OUT WITH THIS PROBLEM

    Might check what CAS timings ya have, what voltage ya got (should be 1.75 when using auto---might be anywhere from 1.74-1.76V however), and what the total wattage on your PSU is (it's not 300W, but the combined watts).

    Also, as a courtesy, don't type in all caps. It's the equivalent of shouting.

    The memory is probably the problem here. This is generally the cause of GPF errors when booting while overclocked. Also, the fact that you are using registered memory doesn't help you in the arts of overclocking. The registered DIMMS are usually SLOWER than their unregistered counterparts. This is because there is an added state for error correction to occur in. Besides, your motherboard does not require registered memory to function, so you can save a little cash AND get better performance by going with regular non-ECC modules.

    Another consideration is the PSU. Even though it may be approved, recommended, whatever, it lacks the power you'll be needing for the Enthusiast. I generally recommend a minimum of 350w and normally suggest a quality unit of at least 400w to be able to handle all peripherals, additional fans needed for overclocking and also the added stresses that occur when tweaking.

    Thankyou Darth and Morgan for that information. Much appreciated. I had thoughts whether it would be the memory or mobo, but now you've proved what my thoughts were thinking. A power hungry PSU is what I would have bought, but because this 300w came with the case, I thought i'd see that it gets a little bit of use. now im at the stage where i can upgrade nicely now the comp is set up. So i've been checking out certified mem on the ABIT -crucial support link and i think i found some non ecc unregistered 512mb. And this is 2700. i didn't think my board supported 2700, but it seems that it does, maybe it won't run at speed this mem is fully capable of but it just might be more than enough to hold a stable 1.7 2100xp rating. I hope so. Thanks and thanks again. sees ya soon :)

    In actual fact ya shouldn't have any probs usin' quality PC3200 (DDR400) memory (though they'd be a waste with that chipset) but yes some good quality fast PC2700 (CL2) memory and at least a PSU that can supply 185W+ total across the 3.3v and 5v rails (this is marked on all quality PSU's, well here it is and the more the better) though gettin' a 400W+ unit will be better in the upgrade long run. :)

    Those registered sticks won't be helpin' ya cause at all as they're meant for mission critical work and won't take kindly to bein' overclocked. :(

    Thanks for advice WIGGO. I am still at conflict with the processor and RAM. I went out and bought non ecc 512mb unregistered. Type: 2700DDR by Infineon. I bought this Module on Saturday 15th Feb. I have been since trying to fiddle around with the bus settings. Still i don't know where the problem lies. Today I recieved my New Enermax 465 Watt power supply unit (BLUE) VE model. Tomorrow i am going to take out the standard 300 that was already mounted and upgrade to this unit. Like you said.. it will be good upgrade potential for my Hardware.

    Thanks once again for ADVICE. It is really appreciated.
