Ok I am fed up. Got an amd thunderchicken 800. Got a water cooling system that stays in the 20's at idle and mid 30's max under load. I just got me 256mb of crucials pc133 memory part #CT32M64S4D7E.16T. Says on the box its unregistered which makes me wonder but it is supposed to be the best memory crucial sells. I formated my system and left all PCI components out. I am using an AGP GE256 32mb video card. My board is the ABIT KT-7 raid. I have tried nearly every trick I can think of to get a higher front side bus. I have set the BIOS options to MAX stability and MAX performance. I have tried setting the clock multiplier low as low as 5X and as high as 10X. I have set voltage as low it can go, standard, and maxed out both clock and i/o. No matter what I do if I try a FSB higher than 115 NO BOOT. Guys and gals save a fellow clocker from just saying screw it. Anyone got any tips or tricks they want to share? Can the AGP slot be the weak link? I am going to try using a conductive pen vs the pencil trick on my chip but I do not see how that can affect FSB. Damn this sucks :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(
A KT7 Raid at 115FSB?? Lucky man. I think you have the wrong chipset for what you wish to accomplish. A KT133A may allow you just that.
