Jetway V266B motherboard OCing

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi...I'm new to overclocking but I believe I have the ability to do this. I'm well educated in computers and I could build a computer from scratch if I had to. But I don't understand how the FSB and CPU speed work together. I have a Jetway V266B motherboard with an AMD Athlon XP 2100+ chip running at 1.73GHz (standard). I'd like to know if it's safe to boost that to about 2 GHz or so. This motherboard can support up to an AMD Athlon XP 2600+ chip and I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to get THAT chip, and then overclock THAT (provided I have some hardcore cooling device, also something I'd like advice on). If anyone can help I'd be greatly appreciative. My BIOS has some kind of FSB/voltage regulator deal if that means anything. I'd also like to know if I have to change any jumpers. Thanks!

Hello PetraFan007,
Your "Jetway V266B" I think has a via chipset, hence the v. Via's are not that great of an overclocking chipset, as many of them rarely have pci/agp lock. Also, I think that your motherboard is rather old if it only supports a 2600+, so that also makes me believe so. You can try it, just look in your bios and if you can lock the pci/agp bus, then go for it. It is safe to boost it to around 2GHz, if you have sufficicent cooling. I would say just stick to overclocking the chip you have now and get it to 2600+ speeds. :shades2: We'll see what other members have to say.

A good cheep FHS (Fan Heat Sink) is the Thermaltake Volcano 12 @ about $29.

Get CPU-Z @ www.cpuid.com to ID the CPU stepping of A or B and wether its a Palo or T-bred. Both of the later core and CPU Stepping are better OCers of there perspective cores.
Don't know if you have a FSB jumper of if it's controled in the BIOS. Don't have manual get it on line. http://www.jetway.com.tw/evisn/index.html
From what I see, you have a dip switch to adjust the multiplyer! If you have a Paly Core your L1 bridges need to be connected to have any possible changes in the multiplyer. If it's a T-Bred and it's locked, unlocking it is a lot of work!!!!!!!
The BIOS section shows a 166FSB but it does not show the ability to adjust the CPU voltage which is necessary for higher overclocking. If your CPU is unlocked you may get a little increase with a multiplyer increase but that is about all.
You may also be able to up to a 166 Mhz FSB and drop the multiplyer to equate to about the same over all speed (again if your CPU is unlocked) but gain in performance over the slower 133 FSB. What I'm getting @ is you'll need to go into your BIOS to confirm the ability to adj. the CPU voltage.

Thanks for the replies so far....I'm pretty sure it's Thoroughbred because I specifically remember seeing that while using System Information on Tune Up Utilities 2004. And I'm also pretty sure I have a bios adjuster. I thought the 266 in V266B meant it has a 266 MHz FSB? Anyways, thanks for the responses and I'm looking forward to more

EDIT: I was wrong, it actually is Palomino

It also says KT-266/333...??? what's that mean?

Iv'e gpt one in a folding rig. They only do 133Mhz fsb so cant go above 2400. You need a board that can handle 166Mhz fsb to higher. Remember you board has Old Sdram & DDR. so because of the SDRam support, it cant do above 133 also no agp/pci Lock.

Are you sure about this? Why can I go into my BIOS and change the FSB MHz? And DRAM MHz?

There seems to be some conflicting information. IF you can get a processor to work at over 2.4 you'll definately need DDR. But without AGP/PCI locks I wouldn't try.
