    Greetings again from Winnipeg,Canada.
    Well alot has happened since my last post and i need some advice.
    About a month ago, i turned the machine on and the cpu was recognized as a 667@66fsb? It always detected as 950@100fsb before. So i set the jumpers to 100fsb and it seemed to work fine for a few weeks.
    Then it started to do funny stuff so i tested everything else in the system like gold memory to test the ram and other stuff but sandra still said rated speed 667@66 and actual 950@100.??
    Well after trying 3 other cpu's , i determined that the 950 failed and when i took it back for warranty, the store said they tested it and it worked fine???
    So i ended up with a new mobo(gigabyte ga-6vtxe-a) from my new supplier and still the same thing with the 950, no boot bluescreen, or xp told me my hd was fried so i ran maxtor recertification and low level format, 100% good.
    They are so dumb, the ran all the testing at 66fsb??? at least thats what it said on bootup on their test board (asus) when i got there, and they did not see the relevance of using more than 128mb of ram or running it at what it is supposed to be.
    Anyway that was the last straw for that store(they have been reneging on warranty for other stuff too).

    Well I'm so broke with the family coming first and everything. So I got a good deal on a 1.2a celeron 100fsb 256k fcpga2 and all is better now.

    The new board seems to run the mem at 133 even though the fsb is 100. And im afraid to turn it up and leave it since at 105fsb, the mem is at 140mhz and at 110fsb its at 148mhz.
    How high do u think the mem can run safely.
    I would like to set the dips at 112fsb but the current oc is with easytune4 @105fsb.

    Any advise???

    Well the plot thickens. After consulting my solicitor, I can mention the following:the store's name is computer boulevard in winnipeg, canada. When I dropped off the cpu, on the way out the door, I asked for a photo copy of all relevant papers (i.e. the paper that i did not sign and the intel return paper that I did sign.
    When they called me to pick up my perfect working cpu:laugh: ,to my suprise they had forged my signature on the paper that said i had to pay $44 for no problems detected, so I said too bad u suck and I'm not going to pay u, so they said ok half price and I pulled the photocopy out of my pocket and thay said no charge so I walked out cpu in hand when they realized that i had a pre forgery photocopy in hand. So now i got the yellow copy with the forgery and the photocopy pre forgery.Busted.....
