Thanks XiL3. Just what I needed. Now at 2.4ghz running sweet.

I probably shouldn't have hinted at my age! My 15 year old is already overtaking me with his pc skills!!

Thanks for your help mate.

I just got this board together with a Venice 3000+ and got it all going yesterday. I come from an socket-A 2500+ so overclocking has been a whole different experience. But that's not the point - yet.

What I found bizarre is that I could not get the board to boot Windows when I chose the non-RAID option. My 2 WesternDigital SATA drives are not in RAID, so I chose the non-RAID option in the Bios, and I was able to run the Windows installation CD, identify, format, and copy files to the desired drive, but I was not able to get Windows to start after the first mandatory restart.

I fiddled so much that I finally reset the Bios settings and realized that the SATA controller screen would pop-up during POST when the Bios was set to a RAID configuration. Now the board quickly recognizes the harddrive as bootable and loads Windows.

Is that a bit weird?

i tried that vmod with a cold heat soldering iron, horrible idea. I actually removed the two points i was trying to connect :S

Im going to my work tonight or tommorow, and im gonna pick up a conductive pen writer. Is it possible that i can fix this situation, or once those points are gone am i screwed?

Hi Teh,

when you loaded the bios, were you asked to load a floppy to make a bootable sata disc? I was and each time I updated or changed the BIOS I had to remake the bootdisc. Then when you load windows you load the bootdisc. I actually left the disc in the drive and when prompted, just pressed 'yes' to load the discette. In the manual it says you don't need to make a discette, but I couldn't load the drivers until I did. I have the single HD, so don't run RAID either, but I don't have any problems.

If anybody knows any different, they may be able to help, but that is my experience.

BTW, I am running XP, I know the windows version does make a difference.

Good luck

Tolak

ok 2.9ghz was no dice

i cant kick it up to 240x12=2880

however, i am able to boot in 235x12 stable.

Ok heres what i know:

MOBO will boot at atleast 270fsb (ive tried it with a lower multi)

RAM is not the issue, because i have ran this ram at 250fsb b4, plus i have tried a divider to no avail

HTT ive run at 4x instead of 5x which i can run at 235fsb
and that didn't help.

Can anyone think what might be holdin me back?

I know this might seem absolutely reverse of what we do to overclock, but reduce your voltage. I was browsing around the official AMD CPU stable thread where I saw a very peculiar configuration by Elmo1989. I tried a variation of that on my system and realized that what was holding me back was the fact that I was putting too much voltage (1.45 v) on the chip. I dropped it to below 1.4 and it's cooler, faster, and stabler.

I think a lot of times in overclocking I ended up 'flooding the carburetor' and giving it too much gas from the beginning.

I was wondering, cause i see nothing about it in the BIOS.... it is obvious how to lock pcie bus frequency, but what about agp? Does it lock that too?
