WinXP & VIA KT266 Chipset
Posted 10 October 2001 - 12:58 PM
By the way any tips on overclocking what is supposed to be an eminently clockable chip would be appreciated. Every time I take the FSB to 266 - BSOD. Everytime I take the procesor speed over 1.4Ghz - BSOD.
This is driving me crazy - [size=18:22bbf02216]HELP!!!!!!![/size:22bbf02216]

1.CPU Vcore- ex. my defualt was the lowest which is 1.65v but I run my at 1.85v. What this does in easier terms is supplies you cpu with higher Volts.This helps with overclocking.
2.Voltage I/O Settings (VIO)- This will really give you a better overclocking chance. Its the Voltage that your mother board is ran at. Most motherboards have 3 setting. Ex. Mine has 3.30v, 3.40, 3.60....I run mine at the highest settings 3.60v.
3.Your chip configuration- This is your ram. SDRAM Timing should have to settings (BY SPD, User Define) Depending on your ram you should start at the lowest settings which should be By SPD and settings below that 3T, 3T, 3T. (Trans Trc 7T,9T)
Other than leaving your FSB:SDRAM:PCI FREQ. RATIO set to 133:133:33 over clocking your motherboard will be done through FSB/SDRAM/PCI FREQ. (MHZ) settings in your bios. Now start one things at a time. Once you have overclocked you can up your RAM settings to see if all runs stable.
A big warning if trying to overclock make sure you have plenty of fans and air flow. Also throw away the piece of crap heatsink and fan you got with your CPU and get a good one. Those never do a good job. Just to give you a idea on air flow I have 1 fan in front of case, 2 in rear, 1 on top, 2 on side, fan on chipset, fan on graphics card, and BIG heatsink WITH A BIG FAN on my CPU. All are not stock but were put on by me. One of the best places to get items and other advice are:
