also, most of the settings up there are not shown by default. They are shown by pressing Ctrl+F1. Sneaky buggers : )

In my K8NS 939, it adds a whole new menu which i really want to play with, but when i did it made everything unstable. I hear HT is hard to OC without changing every else too... which i dont feel like playing with too much.

Thanks again Doby.

btw, the CPU is working under load at 70C with the side of the case off... with it on, i expect it to raise to 75c. Any OCing at ALL will push the temp into unacceptable heights... and already with it being over 60c makes me extremely nervous.

Don't let the cpu temp go over 60c this is safe but anthing over you could start to have stability problems 70c is not.

Its running this hot with a fsb of 166?
What is the vcore?
How many case fans?

I must have messed up with the ram clock % but I ain't sure how the manual don't explain, try setting a percentage that will give you a dram clock of 166 mhz

Leave the ram timings at normal

These settings are stock for your system, let me know if you can do this and then what the temp is at idle

PC health Status shows all voltages are ok.. gives no exact number.

Now this is interesting.

FSB is set to 166.
CPU Int is "Optimal" (which means normal)
Mem Freq is by SPD
Resulting Freq is at 400mhz.

What the....

Mem TImings are Normal.

Boots just fine. CPU is in BIOS at 62C.

Boots to windows, no lag issues as described.

Gonna try some alternate settings....

Ok, final workable settings:

FSB - 166
CPU Int - Agressive
Mem Freq by SPD - Checked through the list, and SPD is choosing 120%
Mem Timings - Normal - System hangs on boot when set to Turbo, with no error beep.

Setting mem Timings to Turbo decreses the tras, trcd, and trp values by 1 each, which are 8, 3, and 3 respectivley.

hey Red,

if these settings don't work its beginning to sound like your cpu is not a 333 mhz cpu maybe a 266 mhz. There is only one way to tell for sure, that is to remove the heatsink and get the opn number from the processor but be prepared if you remove the hs you have to clean and reapply thermal paste.

If you would consider doing this I will look up the number that is printed on top of the cpu. This Link will show you what I mean, scrool to the bottom for how to read the opn number

they are working... playing with settings to see what it is that solves my problem.

The BIOS now gives me the title of the CPU, not just "AMD blahMhz". It reads as a Athlon XP 2800+.

Resulting Freq is at 400mhz.



Yes that is freq not clock speed, clock speed 200 X 2 gives the freq of 400 this is because the cpu is double pumped, just like the fsb 166 mhz x 2 gives you the 333 mhz cpu speed, I know it complicated but thats the best way I can explain

You mean its running dual piplines, or two channels...

{shrug} if its important, i dont understand what you mean and id like you to try again, if its not, then explain if you want to xause im curious : )

I set the Mem Freq to 50% and the system is now running with no lag whatsoever.

I think your problem with the laging is related to the memory if you could get the mem to run at 166 and the timings normal then I think that should work, if not the ram should be tested

What I meant by bingo is that the system is now stable don't do any other ajustments.

Are you happy with the way it is running and the temps?

Testing again with only 1 stick.
