    Hi guys, when I try to overclock my cpu at 110*13=1430 mhz it runs but after a couple of minutes it hangs in windows. But when I try this at 109*13=1417 mhz it runs perfectly. What is the problem? I think it is the motherboard! What could it be?? Anyone a solution? I know one thing it's not the temparature and not the ram! I think the mobo limites me to overclock any higher with fsb!

    Well MySTiCuSS, you have a KT133 based motherboard. Unfortunately, 109MHz is probably the most you will get out of it - they don't overclock too well :(

    Yep, Albinus hit the nail right on the head here. Your KT133 chipset is to blame as it does not really support anything close to 133MHz bus speeds.

    If you're bound and determined to get the most out of the processor, then you'll need to get a new motherboard with a better chipset mounted. KT266A based boards are the rave right now, and for a damn good reason... They can handle bus speeds higher than any other board out there. Check out some reviews and it won't take you long to see successful overclocks in the 225+ MHz range! :eek:

    Your motherboard used to be a great one, but it can't even come close to keeping up with today's competition.

    Will it help to place another cooler on the northbridge chip, or can I throw the board away LOL.:?:

    Cooling the Northbridge will probably not help much. The limitation is in the build of the KT133 chipset. It just doesn't have the capability to handle FSB speeds much above 108 or so. I was able to occasionally get up to 111 on my old KT7 board, but that was it.

    Yeah ok the KT7 is not a good board anymore but I don't have the money to buy a new one!

    Then you'll just have to be content with what you have now, or hope that Santa is good to you this year. ;)
