Overclocking the A7M266


My board will only overclock to a maximum of 142mhz FSB before it becomes unstable. I have not adjusted anything else as the FSB is the only thing that can be overlclocked in the Bios. Has anyone got more luck at overclocking the A7M266, and how did you do it?

What memory brand do you have? I highly recommend Crucial. I got my A7M up to 150 fsb stable with 512 meg Crucial 2100.
Try increasing your vcore and your VIO1. You'll find more info. on these in your manual. Check out this site for A7M266 support:
