@ bioniccrackmonk
So, I am not sure I understand...you have the new upgraded CPU and memory..very nice choices , and you CAN boot with default BIOS settings and everything is running OK. So you are having trouble booting when you alter/tweak the BIOS settings? Is this what you are saying? What other BIOS settings are you trying to use that is causing the boot failures?

The OCZ Support Forum is an excellent place to see what BIOS settings others are using to maximize performance

@ please
Well when i first installed the new processor and memory it would not boot. I reset the cmos so that all the settings are at their basics in the bios. If i leave them as is, the computer boots, but the processor is running at 1100mhz. If i change the cpu frequency to 200mhz so that it runs at the speed it is suppose to, or any cpu frequency other than 100(which is default), the system will not boot and i have to reset cmos again to get my computer to turn on.

@ bioniccrackmonk
That is an unusual problem. Sounds like you are doing everything correctly. Usually the board will auto-detect the processor and set FSB accordingly. It should at least allow you to set the FSB to the standard stock CPU speed. Does your BIOS recognize the CPU correctly in BIOS or during boot? Can you check to see if there is a bent pin or something? When you boot into Windows at 100MHz does Everest or SiSandra recognize your CPU properly as a XP3200 running at 100X11.0=1100MHZ? Any chance of trying the CPU in another board and see if it exhibits the same disfunction? Are you just altering the FSB only or are you trying to do the 'CPU frequency multiple setting' to 2200 and the 'CPU frequency multiple' to 11.0 as well to get the 2200MHz. You could try 200FSB and 10.0X multiple. Maybe try the 'memory frequency' to 'sync' to try and force 200FSB thru the memory as well. I am guessing here, tho as I am no AMD guru.
