    It just maybe that the 2nd stick is not as good as the first one. If you running your memory at +33MHz over the FSB then 145MHz FSB will mean that your memory is running at 178MHz (173MHz@140MHz FSB) which is over the 166MHz that it's rated for and it may pay you better to run the memory at the same speed as the FSB and see how ya go, unless ya are already?. :?:

    I changed the timings back to "by speed" and changed from 166 to 133 and now i can get 145 again:D

    If ya unlocked it and set the multplier to 10 and set the FSB to 166MHz the AGP/PCI divider will kick in and then you can see how much more is possible. ;)

    You'll get something in the order of this.
    Oh just a note about the conclusion, it's pretty much believed that the 166FSB Athlons are very close to release now. ;)
