Yes a 1600XP. I tried to run the memory at 125mhz+HCLK+PCICLK, and I got higher memory score In
Sisioft Sandra with that setting.The Cpu at 125mhz x12.5 mult.
=1566mhz.The Cpu can do over 1700 mhz, so it would be nice with higher multipler.

You mean 100FSB + 25MHz & running the DRAM CLOCK at HCLK+PCICLK right;) Well that's a 25MHz overclock on FSB that affects your PCI & AGP but your CPU to Northbridge is still below par I think. Maybe the 133 setting were not optimized. Wanna give it another try? If so kindly list down your SOFT MENU III & ADVANCED CHIPSET FEATURES exactly how you see them in the BIOS. Your system specs would also be handy:beer:

the rest of the settins is untouched

ABIT KT7A-Raid
AMD 1600XP
256mb/pc 166
ATI All in wonder 128

Sisoft sandra shows:
Front side bus:2 x125Mhz
Logical/chipset Memory Banks speed: 166Mhz
Agp bus: 84Mhz
Pci bus: 42Mhz

Or would i benefit more if I set the FSB at 150Mhz Multipliert
to 11.5=1725Mhz, if it is not possible with higher multiplier than
12.5?

How about trying this;

Soft menu III setup
Cpu operation speed User define
Multipler factor
Cpu FSD/PCI clock.............133/33Mhz
Cpu FSB Plus......................0
DRAM clock.........................HCLK

Advanced chipset feauters

Dram timing.......................Turbo
SDRAM cycle lenght 2

Which BIOS are you running? There was a change in the Dram Timing Values;

SETTINGS.....tRAS.....tRP.....tRCD

BIOS version WZ & later
8/10ns.....6.....3.....3
NORMAL...6.....3.....3
MEDIUM....6.....3.....2
FAST.........6.....2.....3
TURBO......6.....2.....2

BIOS version TL until WW
8/10ns.....6.....3.....3
NORMAL...5.....2.....3
MEDIUM....6.....3.....3
FAST..........6.....2.....3
TURBO.......6.....3.....2
