the

motherboard defaulted to 100FSB with the CMOS clearing after the clocking nogo.

you have to enter the bios and reset stuffs in softmenu and other areas, depending on your preferences.

also, the clock you were going for may be attainable with a slight boost in the voltage to the CPU.

give it a try the next time you go for it.

There are no divisors as this mobo has the PCI locked at 33MHz no matter what you set everything else to. Much better :D

You can overclock the AGP independantly too. :clap:

Do a forum search for any question and then read the posts. Once you've done that and your questions haven't been answered, feel free to ask.

Here're some links that might help.

Flashing BIOS

Overclocking Tbred-Bs

Memory

Read the stickies too as they often address FAQs on this forum.

vietp13, give us a complete list of your hardware, operating system, BIOS configurations, etc.

So far we're all just shootin' in the dark.

Sorry, I've been offline rebuilding my OS installations after server 2003 hosed 'em.

Try the failsafe or resetting the CMOS. Then see if you can boot into your OS. If it fails, tell us what the error says.

If you can get into windows then try just changing your fsb to 166 and don't mess with anything else to see if you can hold those settings before changing too many BIOS parameters.

I'd just reset it and start slowly one item at a time so when you fail, you'll know what didn't work. If you just start changing everything at once, you're in for lots of disappointment.

Set the fsb at 166 x 11. memory at optimal. stock voltage.

After that, try 180 fsb. If not then up the voltage to 1.6 and try again.

Even if you get into windows and everything seems ok, watch for instability, lockups, OS scanning HD for errors frequently as a sign you need to slow it down a little.

Not every cpu will be a dream overclocker. Some are cherries among cherries. Others can be more normal with a twist of lemon.
