    Hello all,

    After deciding against unlocking my XP1900 cpu I attempted to see how far I could push the FSB with it locked.

    I started at a healthy 138mhz which ran fine and didn't increase the temps so I was happy. However, when running some benchmarks such as 3dmark 2002, the scored were lower by a couple of hundred. Also, UT2003 benchmark showed no increase.

    Can anyone explain this as I don't want to push the FSB higher if it is only going to lower performance?

    FYI

    XP 1900
    FSB - 138
    PCI/AGP - 34/68
    512MB DDR 3200
    Geforce 3

    What would be a safe voltage to bump it up by??? So I don't fry my processor. And would I have to bump anything else up like the memory voltage, AGP etc to keep in line with it?
