Ok so for now i have an older gigabyte mobo GA-7VRX v.2 that runs max at 266mhz fsb. I just ordered a Amd-m 2400+...

I want to overlock it for now just a little bit, but my motherboard multiplier only goes to 12.5. So i am wondering how i can make it go higher? I will eventually get a new mobo so i can o.c. this thing up to like 333 or 400 fsb. But for now i just want it up to like 2ghz with 266mhz fsb.

Any suggestions?

sadface. mail me ur shuttle board!

The motherboard does have an update for bios so that it will recognize the xp 2400+ and 2600+. I think i just have to put the multiplier on auto to get it up to the 133x13.5 = 1800mhz.

So since it recognizes the 2600+ also, i wonder if there is a way to just make the m.b. think its a 2600+ and put it at that speed. Guess we'll find out on monday when i get it.

If that 2400 is a recient buy it's probably locked
because they haven't made em unlocked since about fall of last year. But you never know, a friend who wouldn't know what to do w/an unlocked barton receintly stumbled on an unlocked retail 2500... old stock, go figure!!!

Yes, the XP-M cpus are unlocked. I would say that you would be better off with a MSI K7n2 Delta-LSR mobo you can pick em up for 60$ on newegg.com
