Ok so i just got my mobile 2400+. It works fine with my system. My mobo doesnt manually multiply over 12.5 ( the last multi is marked >=12.5 ) so i put my multi on auto and my comp did the rest. So now its running at 13.5x133, or 1800mhz and its only at 30 degrees C. Which is good since i used to have a 256cache 1.2 tbird that ran at 58 C.

One question is, Is there a way to get a higher multiplier than 13.5? My mobo is capable of recognizing a 2600+ ( just got new bios ). Can i like, trick my mobo?

2nd. I have 2 sticks of ram in my comp, both are spectek ( think its cheapy ram). One is pc2100 and the other pc2700. In bios i can up my fsb to a max of 150, i think. But i want to know if my ram will keep up? Dunno if it matters but the CPU-Z thing says my timing for the 2100 is 2.5-3-3-6 and the other 2.5-3-3-7.

Thanks for any help. Damn this mobile + a volcano is sweet. Best 100 bucks ive spent in a while.

The 2600's have a lower multi and higher FSB 11.5x166.

I doubt you'll be able to do anything to trick the board into allowing higher multis. Anyways, you should be after higher FBS which is what really increases performance.

The only way to find out if your ram will hold at that FSB is to try it. In my old system I had my stick of samsung PC2100 running @ 152FBS. Just try it and see. Increase your FSB in increments of 5mhz and once it doesnt boot anymore go back and drecrease it 1mhz by 1mhz untill it works again.

Yeah, but they make the mobo's for the desktops, so when your mobo says it supports a 2600+ is most likely talking about a desktop 2600+ which is 333FSB and has a lower multi.

Um, so i upped my fsb to 148 right now. Obviously i can get on to windows, but my browser's keep crashing.

When i up the fsb to my cpu in bios, does the memory automatically adjust and up/down itslef to the fsb of the cpu? Or do i have to manually change the RAM fsb. At 150mhz my IE and firefox crash on starting them up.

Will my PC2700 stick just take over even if the 2100 cant keep up? Making me have 256mb ram instead of 512 i mean.

If FSB/SDRAM ratio is on auto it should up the same amount when you change it.

The stick of PC2700 memory will slow down to match the PC2100 memory speeds. Once the PC2100 stick cant go any further, the 2700 wont either.
