I can't seem to go past 140MHz FSB. I cant seem to figure out why. This gives me 1894.3MHz and memory clock of 175Mhz.
Any ideas?
Specs are signature in red.

You need to lower your CPU multiplier.

Im assuming you are running 13.5 X 140 (Which equals 1.89 ghz)

Given you using PC2700 Ram and you have Nforce board you should be able to run 180-190 fsb. Depending on ram


So I would try 10.5 X 180 ( Which equals 1.89 ghz)

Since we know your CPU can handle 1.89ghz.
Then you can go from there and experiment

MMM you need to be running your system also sync'ed make sure you are running memory same as fsb. Your just slowing your system down running it out of sync.

HHHMMMM. I tried the settings you suggested to no avail. I then tried 175MHz/11.0x this gives me 1925MHz and it seems to run fine. I guess the memory is limiting how far I can go. I might be able to squeeze a hair more out of the FSB maybe to 176 or 177.

Thanks for the help!
