    Is there a jumper on the board (probably in the vicinity of the PCI slots) that regulates the base FSB of the board? Some manufacturers still use this jumper instead of allowing the BIOS to handle the job fully.

    Also if that memory is only PC2100 be sure that ya memory and CPU are runnin' at the same bus speed because if ya tryin' to run the memory at +33MHz over the FSB PC2100 is unlikely to like runnin' at 166MHz. ;)

    If you're unsure about the jumper, then take a look at the manual. It is a relatively important setting for the system since the jumper has two positions it can be in (three pins). One way it tells the system to use a default FSB of 100MHz and the other way tells the system to use a 133MHz default speed. And when I say Default Speed, I am referring to the base speed of the motherboard communicating from the processor to the memory. When set to 100, all BIOS adjustments will be from a starting point of 100MHz so will drastically limit your overall speeds.
