2500XP-M and 166fsb

Discussion in 'AMD Overclocking' started by Jamea Thompson, May 12, 2004.

  1. Just ordered a 2500XP-M but i only have a 333fsb board. Its the gigabyte
    GA7VA-XP. Im thinking of using the multiplier to clock the chip (can go up
    to 18 on this board). I think you can up the fsb from 166 toward 200 in the
    bios, but not sure how far it can go. Also, i have PC2700 memory, what fsb
    speed can this memory take? do PC2700 goto 200fsb? (its just generic stuff).

    Anyone got any experience clocking this chip with a 333fsb board?

    PC2700 runs at 333. If you want to run at 400Mhz, you really need PC3200
    (or better).

    I am running 333 ram at 400 hz it gets unstable sometimes under high load
    games but for 99 percent of the time it can handle it. But if no budget
    constraints get some good ram.........

    My two cents!!!!!

    ratios are what you need.

    Everything depends on the chips used - I know someone running Twinmos PC2100
    at 10 x 258 FSB (7 2 2 3.0 - 3.3v-dimm) on a DFI NFII !
