Hey if i wanna use DDR 400 in a 1:1 ratio with a Barton 2500 can i raise the FSB to 200 and lower the multiplier to make the clock speed "normal" without hurtin anything? Thanx in advanced.

Weeeellll. No. The clock speed is 166x11, which would be 1833 Mhz. You COULD do 200x9 for about the same, but meh, just overclock it. ;)

Damn it, you're making me drool over a mobo box!!! :mad:

200X11 is 2.2GHz weenie!

I THINK you mean 11.5x200...

Apparently cooling aint everything. My Barton (2800+) craps out at around 2.45 and its temp is 35C. Tried higher timings and higher voltages. Windows won't boot :p

Sweet, 2.2GHz later on this week i was thinking of replaceong my polly XP2100 with one :)
