My personal system at my house is currently running:
Athlon XP 1600
512mb DDR PC2700 RAM (256 kingston 256 generic)
ATI Radeon 7000
120GB Maxtor ATA-133
160GB Hitatchi SATA
Pacific Digital DVD Burner
Generic CD Burner
Antec 350W Smartpower
Seasound Solo EX Audio Card
Linksys Wireless G card
Generic USB 2 card
I believe that the 1600s FSB is 266mhz and the rams speed is at lest 266mhz, but my mobo wants to run at 133mhz, and when I set it to 266 it refuses to boot, no video, no post, nothing.
The fastest that I can set it is 166mhz and eventhen it runs a little shaky.
I've run the RAM through memtest and it passes with flying colors (at 166)
Is this a PSU issue? do I need more power?
When I set the fsb to 166mhz my bios and windows say I am running a 2100 instead of a 1600
I saw that there was another post on this, but it didn't give any firm answers
