    I have a Gigabyte GA-7VAX and a Athlon Xp 1700 1.47Ghz I have left the Clock Ratio on auto what should the System bus speed be set at?

    100Mhz
    133mhz
    166Mhz

    Cheers for that dude! Thats what I thought but i carnt get the thing to work everything is set fine but it wont turn on, ive tried 2 diff cases memory Still no luck, I just dunno what to do now Ive allready burnt out 2 cpus on other faulty motherboards begining to get very anoyed now! Any ideas what im doing wrong?

    If I try to override the auto cpu setters 133mhz at 11x would be right for 1.47Gb? yep? Im not going mad am i?

    You need to flip that switch... auto leaves it at 100MHz. Athlons run @133

    I have the GA-7AXP. There are two little dip-switches that need to be flipped for the FSB to be set at 133mhz.
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.

    If you've fried multiple CPUs and tried different memory...you may want to make sure that your CPU fan is getting power and also that your Power Supply is giving your componenets the proper /consistant voltage. I highly doubt that your case is causing your problem as it just functions as housing for your parts.

    Yeah when I said case I meant to say Power supply! I not really have the knowledge or equipment to check it, and certainly can not check the motherboards how are they checked does anyone else know how?

    There is an Antec power supply checking device that several computer shops in my area sell. They aren't terribly expensive, but then again I'm not sure how accurate they are. if you can, you can usually see what the voltages are in the BIOS of your motherboard in the PC-Health section.
