    Now I've added a half-decent grafix card to my set up I would really like to tease a few extra horses outta my CPU (set up as in my sig) but unfortunately I'm real wet behind the ears when it comes to such technical modifications (as you can probably tell ;)).

    Would anyone like to point me in the right direction?

    On the spot with the info again Wiggo - Nice one buddy!

    I checked out the process for speeding up the FSB clock - I've raised the value within the BIOS to 220mhz but it's made no difference to the CPU clock speed - it's still running at 1466mhz.

    I checked out the manual for my MoBo and I've juggled the SWI switches to give me a theoretical multiplier of 12x but alas my processor obviously needs bridging before that'll take effect.

    Shouldn't the FSB clock alteration at least be making some difference to my CPU?

    Ya'll need to unlock the CPU b4 ya can manipulate the multiplier with that mobo and ya won't be able to get that chipset of your's to that sort of FSB speed (around 145MHz is all). Obviously the BIOS ignored the settin' that you entered for the FSB as it doesn't support AGP/PCI dividers above 133MHz.

    The area of BIOS where I entered the new FSU clock speed was inviting speeds of between 133 and 250 for some reason - I owrked my way up from 135 to 220 without any effect whatsoever on my CPU clock.

    I eventually resorted to putting in 250 and my machine locked so I had to clear CMOS in order to get the thing going again.

    Surely there's gotta be some way of squeezing a few extra horses outta my CPU? :confused:

    Ya mobo might be like some ASUS boards where a jumper or dipswitch must be moved b4 the actual BIOS settin's will work so just check ya mobo's manual out about that.

    There is a jumper on the mobo which allows you to switch between 100mhz in the on position and 133mhz in the off - do you think that may need switching to 100mhx before the adjustments kick in?

    No , wiggo means a jumper or a switch for automatic/manual. That jumper you are refering to is for older cpu's to run @100x2 instead of 133x2 which is the stock fsb for yours and xp's up to xp2400 or xp2600(very rare).

    I've done a detailed search of my manual and the online manuals for sign of such a jumper switch but there literally isn't one.

    The only jumper present is the one which switches the FSB clock between 100mhz and 133mhz.

    I've made all the necessary changes within BIOS to "theoretically" effect an FSB overclock but my CPU is still running at 1466mhz. Is there a trick I'm missing out on or will it simply be a case of the multiplier being the only value I can mess with?

    Ok I not real sure what's goin' on there but when ya raise the FSB do ya have the multiplier dipswitches in the Auto position or set to the multiplier of 11? :?:
