What type of memory are you using?? If it is PC2700, then you might have a tough time, but here is what needs to be done. You need to adjust your FSB to 200Mhz in one shot. I know that you would normally do this in steps, but with your board not having an AGP clock lock you will not be able to get further than +10%, unless you use a standard bus speed (ie. 100, 133, 166, 200). Using your bus at 200Mhz will engage the AGP clock lock and free you from that limitation. There are a few things to remember when doing this. You need to watch your heat. Also remember that the XP3200 runs at 1.65v instead of the 1.5 that the XP2500 runs at. You might be wise to lower the multiplier to 9 and attempt the 200MHZ FSB to ensure that your memory is not the limitation. Then once you past POST, up the multiplier to 11 and enjoy your XP3200!!
