Before I got my 8500 tracers I could boot and bench fine all the way to 453FSB with 333 OR 400 strap...........now with theese tracers It wont boot @ anything over 425 UNLESS I use the 333 strap.

Shouldnt it be the otherway around - needing the 400 strap to boot over 425??

Im going to run some more tests tonight - I will post up exact numbers.

In the interim - Does anyone know why It will boot with the 333 strap and not the 400?

cheers?

There may be an FSB hole at the 400 strap. But that's just a guess anyway.

Usually the 333 strap works better. You do have the DRAM freq. set manually right?
