Northbridge at 1.7, CPU at 1.37(which is much more than you need but it's your only option), and FSB at 1.5+v. Southbridge can probably stay AUTO but you could just set it to a notch or two above stock settings. Of course make sure all of the basics are disabled like CE1 or C1E I forget, Speed, watchdog, failsafe, etc... And start trying for a much higher FSB - try for 440+ you still could be sitting in a hole.
As I have those nice red values now, I can actually lower the CPU voltage to just about any step ...
And off course I try manual settings all the time, the only thing I tried to point out is that this is actually the highest stable setting I can get until now ...
And all those settings are disabled ...
Maybe I'm in a hole (quite possible) but I just thought maybe this exact problem could ring a bell somewhere, as in 'aha, now I get it!' (and as in 'I don't
So, will try again (handy thing this portable next to this PC ... at least I can keep on posting and reading while trying all those settings!)
