UPDATE : Found it.... changed to the new bios and all is well now :)


Ok.... i have a XP2100 unlocked, set at 1.95 volts 166x11.5 1920mhz on a Epox 8KA3+, mem timings or at normal. Using Watercooling setup around 46c full load.

Video card is a MSI TI4200 128 megs, i am running WINXPPRO.

Here's the prob. : If i leave the cpu at stock (10.5 x 166) the board has a 1/5th divider so pci and agp are at normal spec, i get a score in 3dmark of 12675.

Now when i overclock the cpu to 11.5 x 166 (1920), i get a score of 10000 ? wtf is that all about ???....
I have tried running cpu benchmarks at stock and overclocked and the cpu seems to be overclocking fine and giving normal results from stocjk to overclocked, so i'm stomped.....

When i'm at stock, my load temp is around 35c and overclocked 46c, could this be it ? makes no sense then cpu benchmarks would be lower too but they're fine.

Help !
