help with bios settings on Epox EP-8RDA6+

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My specs is:

AMD XP3000+ barton 2.17ghz
EP-8RDA6+ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813123221
512mb PC3200 400Mhz DDR
Thermaltake Typhoon

I can't seem to figure what is going on with the bios, i change the fsb to 200mhz & it keeps on going to 100mhz after the settings are save. currently i'm on fsb 166mhz 2.17ghz. anyone here has any clue what's happening & if i'm not doing the correct settings..?

I think I remember reading on one of the reviews on newegg.com that you should flash back to an older bios. not sure what was wrong with the new bios.
