    i have a 2800+barton on a kt6 delta board 1 gig of kingston ram at 333mhz messing around with the bios i change the FSB to 2000 * 11.5 it reads as a 3200. am i just causing a bottleneck. cheers in advance

    i take it you mean 200mhz x 11.5

    why do you say your causing a bottleneck?

    possibly because his memory is at 333 mhz while is processor is on a 400mhz fsb

    also it shouldnt be reading 3200 for 11.5x200. the 3200 is 11x200

    When the FSB was changed to 200MHz, the memory was pumped up to 400MHz speed. As long as there are no instabilities all is well. This is where the term overclocking comes from.

    System motherboards and Windows will always read an overclocked AMD processor over about 2GHz as a 3200+ processor. Don't ask me why but mone does the same thing. No matter how high I clock the processor, it tells me I have a 3200+ Barton.


    Classlessmetal: I'm not a huge fan of any board using the VIA KT600 chipset, but if you're getting good results you'll do fine. You're not causing a bottleneck to speak of, but you've lost out on some performance since VIA doesn't use a dual-channel memory controller in that chipset. My results with overclocking were very limited. If you get the chance, you might take a gander at a motherboard using the nVidia nForce2 chipset. It will give better overall performance, is still very stable and also overclocks better than its VIA counterpart.
