Hey guys! I'm a noobie at the computer building thing but i got putting it together figured out. BUT i have an Infinity NF2 mobo and there is a jumper on it for the processor. When i put the jumper on, this thing really hauls @ss! But, it gives me constant errors and shuts down. When i take it off it runs as a 1900+ at 1.47ghz but runs like a champ, never get any errors. Any ideas? I have been at it for about 2 weeks now and dont know whats going on. I paid for a 3200+ not a 1900+!!!!

Make sure the rest of ur jumpers and hardware is installed correct. Check bios settings too, set to default

Is your mobo the NFII ULTRA INFINITY, I couldn't find any info on a Infinity NF2, only the NFII ULTRA INFINITYseries.

Anyway the NFII ULTRA INFINITY series doesn't have a CPU jumper, the frequencies are set up in the BIOS. The only jumper I see in the manual is the CMOS jumper. If you don't have the NFII ULTRA INFINITY just ignore what I said.

On the Infinity Ultra NFII there is one jumper that set your FSB to 100mhz, for emergency jus incase you cant get booted, why dont you try and clear you CMOS, this way unplug you power cable for you PSU and then take the CMOS battery out and then move the clear cmos jumper to clear leave for 30sec put the jumper back and the battery, cable back in and switch you pc on in the bios select set to default option and check again!

To add Ive built 3 systems with this board and the when you put the jumper on it should be running at normal clock speed, with the jumper off it will run at 100mhz. What kind of errors do you get? Are they blue screen? When do they happen mostly? Randomly? Ram can usually causes all the really wierd problems. Which gives me an idea. Is your ram atleast PC3200?

Check for BIOS updates and see if any relevant improvements are listed.
Here is a handy tells all utility to check out your system, get the free home edition. Load it and poke around. It helped me find the correct drivers for my monitor and by eliminating the Plug and Play monitor the FPS went up.

You may want to check your refresh rates, that can cause some problems but it's a long shot.

I'd check for driver up dates but stay away from XP SP2, many have no problems but many also do!!!
