ASUS A7V400-MX mother board
AMD Athlon XP2000+ @1.66GHZ
XP Pro with SP2
2GB PC3200 Dual Channel RAM
e-GForce 7300GT w/512MB DDR2 RAM video card
It just seems like this system should be able to use much more of the RAM that I have, and think I may have the CMOS configured wrong (CMOS is what it goes to on initial boot when you hit del to set up the mother board right?). I leave the case open to help keep things cool, and also have a heat sink fan on the CPU, so I dont think heat will be much of an issue as long as I dont get to crazy with overclocking. Besides, I have heard that AMD chips respond well to overclocking, unlike Intel chips. Atleast thats what the network admin buddy says. I have also been told I could over clock my system to about 2.0 ghz reliably, as ling as I keep an eye on temps. The case I have has temp reading for case temps, and CPU temps, so keeping an eye on it shouldent be a problem. I also regularly clean it out of the "dust bunnies" that it build with compresed air, at about 60psi from the garage compressor.
Thanks in advance for any help rendered!
