It could be one of a few problems as to why it wont boot at 133 fsb, but most likely you need to get some better cooling in the case. Start with a better hsf (heatsink/fan) and get a case fan either on the rear of the case if there is a spot for one, or in the lower front of the case, where there is most likely a spot for a fan. When you add the better hsf, you will want to get some quality thermal gel to put between the cpu and the heatsink, like some arctic silver. Then try hitting 133 fsb again. If it still wont boot then you will need to add a bit of voltage, no more than a 10% increase though. Good luck and hopefully a few others will have some good advice for you as well. One other huge upgrade that you should do is add another 128mb stick of pc133 ram to the comp, that is a sizeable performance increase in itself.Clown said:oh by the way i forgot it was a
