Help with OCing Athlon XP
« on: January 25, 2003, 10:27:19 AM »

Hi guys, here's the scoop.  I unlocked my 2000xp (1.67GHz), dropped the multiplier to 10, and bumped up the fsb to 166, I'm using an Asus A7V8X and I'm running XP w/ SP1 (thinking of going back to regular XP).  In my Bios, it shows a multiplier of 10 and fsb of 166, when it boots, both Sandra and CPUid show it at 9.5...  any ideas?

Try a bios update.  That would be my guess.

I've done some more playing around and updated my bios to the latest (as of friday night) version...  Now if I set my multiplier to 10 in bios, windows is reporting it as 9, 10.5 is reporting as 9.5, but 11 isn't showing up as 10...  it's showing up as 11...  I'm new to OCing and I just want to make sure that my chip will be able to take a 33 MHz fsb increase as well as the 150 or so increase in clock speed if I leave it at 11.  I'm using arctic silver 3 and a volcano 7+ heatsink
