mobo-Abit AT7-MAX2
CPU- 2400+
RAM- Corsair 512Mb XMS CAS2 bla bla bla

it runs fine @ these settings
1.85 Vcore (will post @ 1.95)
47C load

but when i try this it wont post
1.85, 1.9, 1.95 vcore
please help!

RAM is @ slowest timings
are you using the 5th divider? and what bios are you using? the 5th is not that stable with the ad bios. update to the B7 bios.
I seem to get no further then 12.5 x166 with amd 2400 & ram settings at turbo or SPD and 1/5 divisor

I will play around with the multies & fsb a little later and post my results... good or bad later

because I also have a vcore temp issue with this mobo..
at cold boot up and idle i get vcore temp at 54C..full load 64c with no crashes.
