Thread: 2500 and windows XP problems

    Just bought myself an Xp2500 and an Asus A7N8X-E deluxe mobo.

    Looks like chip is locked so I've been upping the FSB. For some reason, as soon as I go past 182 FSB, Windows, loads, and then reboots again. I've tried upping the voltage to 1.750 but no joy. The only thing I am thinking of now is my memory timings which are set to 7,4,4,2.5.

    Any ideas plz?

    those are some slower timings so that cant be the problem....what kind of memory is it? if its generic, odds are it wont go much higher...i have my crucial 266 running at 298 and thats the max ill go.....and its at 2-2-3-7...higher quality stuff runs much faster....and smoother

    How about mobo, video card, and power supply info? I have had a problem before which sounds something like you describe and it was a power issue..

    I'm on 1008 which I think is the latest bios. What version you on?

    Might be all that chip can do without adjusting the multiplier. Overclocking is luck in the end, not any guarantee. Memory timings might play a role, but then again, they may not. Like I said, it amounts to luck.
