Thread: Computer won't boot above 145 fsb

    I see all these people with FSBs of 180s and I'm just wondering how you get that because I have a XP2100+ and when i put it up to 145 or above my computer doesn't boot. Sometimes i get an error at startup saying "CPU OVER SPEED!!" and sometimes i have to clear the CMOS to get the computer to start again. anybody got any ideas? Thanks

    It really depends on the hardware your using. Every processor and mobo varies on there potential in overclockablility. I'm not really sure how far you can stretch an ASUS board beyond its limits. I know that EPOX boards have excellent overclockability and I've seen them OCed to 200MHz.

    so it's probably because of my motherboard... that kinda sucks.... at first i wasn't goin to overclock but then i tried it and i like it so i want to do it more... is there any way to get around that? If i unlock my CPU do ya think i'll still have the same problems when i up the multiplier so i shouldn't even try? it's not bad having it at this speed but i just would like to push it more...

    I doubt that it will be due to the mobo but likely just another part has reached its limit or would like some more current. A full rundown on all your hardware may add some insite on things to try out as 145MHz FSB is where PCI cards and memory can be a prob but it just maybe that the CPU has run out of puff. ;)

    orion
    ok first turn OFF halt on all erors in bios
    lock AGP bus at 66mhz
    try uping the voltage on the ddr ram little at a time
    i can run my samsung pc 2700 2.5 ram at 185
    but i found out 177 is a good all around speed
    and on the asus board always run ram insyc

    i did those things that you said but it still won't boot over 145 for the FSB... i don't know. ah well i ordered my XP2400+ so i'm not going to worry bout it. I always test my computer for stability with Grand Theft Auto III and it's only stable running that at 1858 MHz or somewhere around there. One more thing i find weird is that i just put two more intake fans and one exhaust fan in my case and i still idle at 39C and max at 45C or so... Shouldn't it be a little cooler? I now have 6 case fans in it and i have an HHC-001 HSF cooling my cpu and i would think that i'd be getting some cooler temps. of course i am running 1.825v through the core..... i dont' know i'm just babbling

    well i dont know how your raising the fsb the right way is to lower the multiplyer the more the fsb goes up
    like if you want to run 1800mhz you can do 133x13,5
    but 166x11 would give you higher 3r marks and performence
    and as for the 2400xp once you get it flash your bios to the new beta drivers at the asus web sight then your 2400xp will be unlocked

    what do you have your fsb and multiplier set to with your 2400+? What do you have cooling that thing too?

    well at first running 166x13.5 all i ran was a volcano7+
    but now i got a water cooling rig i made myself to get up into the 2481 2600 area but alot of people with good fans and air cooling get good overclocks
