Trying to raise FSB

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
raised it to 213 (3.2 GHZ) in 1:1 ratio and when i tried to boot it would ask me to insert system disk... why would it do that? i just put it back to manual and it booted fine, i was reading that overclock guide in the stickies and it said if you have 533 fsb and then ddr400 ram you will have an easier time, should i try to lower my ram to ddr333 then overclock? thanks.

That sounds like a problem with the AGP/PCI clocks not being set correctly. Lock them at 66.6MHz/33.3MHz or as close as possible and this may prevent the problem

indeed, i swear i had it locked, but nope

I have a question about getting more volts to my ram, im going to get OCZ platninum rev 2 memory and i want to be able to give it more than 2.8 Volts (all my BIOS lets me) is there a program that can do that? or a bios tweak or anything? thanks guys.

A custom BIOS may allow you to give more voltage to your memory. The OCZ DDR Booster may also help to fix this problem
