Well I got my stick of 512mb Crucial XMS pc2700 dram today expecting to find overclocking a bit easier, but no go. I got a driver related blue screen, crashing and an error in Prime95 unless I had my vdimm at 2.8 volts or my cpu voltage at 1.8 at 141x13. Could the added fsb cause problems with my agp or hard drive stability? Would like to know some thoughts. Thinking I should upgrade with some more OCable worthy components. Not sure what to blame. Just got a Asus 9600xt Radeon that corrupted Windows giving me DELAYED WRITE FAILED errors, so know I can't enjoy that new purchase. Thanks in advance for any advice.
in general, you'd have better luck with 3200 or greater ram. i wouldn't think 141fsb would be enough over to cause much PCI/AGP instability, but i guess a lot could depend on the quirks of the individual components. if you could get to the divider that would solve that question, at least. an nforce2 mobo would also help in a lot of different ways -- bus locks, memory setting options, etc. can't remember your CPU (can't see your sig here in write mode) -- 2200 was it? that probably O/C's decently, but it might not be one of the better known O/Cers such as the 2100, the 1700, and the 2500+. maybe someone else knows the OC capability of that chip better than i do. also, what PSU do you have, and how are your temps?
