    My friend just got all his parts on my recomendations.
    Using corsair ram pc3200 2x512m and a Barton 2500+.
    No matter what we have tried the system hangs when we set it to 200Mhz
    fsb...save bios.....restart system and it hangs.
    Power down-reboot sets it back to safe settings of 11x100Mhz....We have
    tried Vcore up to 1.750...didnt want to crank it to awful high to start
    ram timmings set at 7-3-3-2....should we maybe try 2.3 or 3 jsut to get it
    to go?
    Also the bios is 1005...Gonna try flashing to 1004Uber tonight.
    Im very puzzeled since my 2100+ is running 11x200 Right now at 1.750Vcore
    and my OCZ ram is at 7-2-2-2.
    TIA for any advice

    Why don't you try some values between 166 and 200? Find out where it stops
    to work.

    Have you tried 200*9?

    If that works, try 200*10 etc.

    Try different FSB-Values. My Barton 2500+ hangs at FSB 199 and 200... but
    works fine at 201 (!). = 2.15 GHz. It hangs at 182, but works fine at 181
    and 185. Maximum FSB I get to work is 215 (2.36 GHz !), but the system
    then is not very stable, crashes about 1 - 2 times per hour (bluescreens).

    Maximum FSB I get to work stable is 201 MHz = 2,22 GHz CPU. No crash in
    24 hours. Longer I havenĀ“t tested. Windows XP detects an Athlon 3200+ CPU !

    I tried FSB 218 (= 2.4 GHz) but the system did not boot, blackscreen at
    boot, no bios-setup possible, I had to do a bios-reset taking off the
    battery for 10 minutes. :-(

    MSI MS-6590 KT6 Delta FISR Board, FSB 100 - 400, Athlon Barton 2500+ AQXEA,
    VIA KT 600 chipset, 4-in-1 4.49 Hyperion, 2 x 256 MB Kingston PC3200
    DDR-RAM at 400 MHz CL 3.

    Vcore 1.650 V, but worked also at 1.575, 1.60, 1.675 (stable). Hanged at
    1.50 V -> no boot, blackscreen -> bios-reset / battery off necessary :-(
