View Full Version : Xp1800 over clock

03-03-04, 02:52 PM
I have a question. I have an xp1800 and a Biostar m7vib kt266 motherboard. I am running pc2600 ram. Will I be able to run the fsb up any or will the memory/cpu not handle any overclocking with this setup?
Any input would be very helpful. Thanks

You should be able to bump up the FSB more but don't expect much with a BIOSTAR board.

Well, The highest I could get was fsb 140. It posts as a xp1900. Very stable. I got it to post at fsb 143 xp2000 but it rebooted windows.

I have another question. Will one of the xp mobile cpu's work in my Biostar M7VIB motherboard? The website lists up to xp2600+ as supported.

If your pc reboots, try raising the core voltage if you havent already, as it may help with stability.

yep, they may not initially detect the speed correctly, but your mobo supports all SocketA cpu's...

With a tbredB (1700,2100,2400,2700 etc), a Barton, or a mobile Barton, you should at least be able to do 150fsb...

does your mobo have multiplier adjustments?

meh, your mobo does not support BIOS multiplier adjustment... dang... however, i do believe that a software tool was very recently released that allows for on-th-fly multiplier adjustments.. all I know about it thus far is that it apparently works great for SiS735 mobo's (ECS K7S5A) and does not work for nforce2's... I dunno about VIA chipset mobo's...

I can't adjust the multiplier and my motherboard doesn't let me adjust the voltage either. So I have concluded to just buy a new CPU for now. Was trying to milk some more time out of this CPU. Thanks for all the info
