how do get 200fsb

hi i decided before i try this time to ask first

i want to o/c the fsb to 200. do i need to adjust voltages? ive never o/ced before.

2600+ 333
8RDA+
(2) Corsair XMS PC3500 512mb

Welcome to AOA.

im not sure how much you know so ill start with overclocking 101.

CPU speed = FSB x multiplyer.

Clock speed on the Xp-2600 is 12x166 = 2.1333ghz.

To keep your CPU the same speed at 200fsb you need to drop your multiplyer to 10.5 or 11 (10.5x200=2.1gig, 11x 200=2.2)

So start with a 10.5 times multiplyer, dont go for 200 straight away but take it slow. Jumping too high in one step is how you break things, best to go slowly and you will (hopefully) notice instability before you go way too far.

Start at 10.5 x 180 and take it up 3-5mhz at a time, run dragothic 3dmark at each step. I know this will take a whyle but its the best way to go.

As for memory timings you should be ok at 5,2,2,2 optimal with your memory. If you have problems drop back to 6,3,3,2.

You will probably have to increase your Vdimm to 2.9 to hit 200fsb.

you may be able to get more than 200, going above 200 id recomend you go up in steps of 2mhz.

Before you start backup your system using Ghost on the CD, it might save you a reinstall.

Good luck, let us know how you get on.

Id go for the higher FSB first, then heck stability.

Once you can be confident at high FSB then increase your multiplyer and overclcok the CPU.

Best to d oone at a time or you will never be sure whats causing any problems you have.
