What should I do to achieve better stability when overclocking the FSB on the KT7 ? In office applications I can use 110-112MHz FSB but in 3D graphics it locks up at 105MHz+. My video card is Leadtek TNT2Pro.
The problem is with the video card, the northbridge, the memory (generic PC133 CAS3) or what???

Duron 1050 and other neat stuff ... which I don't recall now ...

Well it might be worth mentioning that this board is just like other KT133 boards. It cannot do high fsb speed. Typical max is 110-115mhz. Few can do 120mhz or perhaps little higher.

However higher I/O voltage helps, and if you are running your memory @ hci +pci clock it is running @146mhz @110mhz fsb speed. You need a good pc133 mem to do that at cas 2.

Well guys thanks for your advices, must be the shitty memory that I have (I live in Romania, it is absolutely impossible to find quality RAM / psu / coolers out here). I will try lower memory settings.
