i'm running the ASUS p4c800 deluxe with an Intel P4 3.2 GHz chip. i updated my bios, and the only option i have for processor speed is 2.4 GHz. i'm able to overclock by 30% to get 3.12 GHz, but shouldn't i be able to get 3.2 without overclocking?

i'm running with 2 512 MB sticks of PNY PC2700 (333mhz) memory. i tried changing the speed settings to 2-2-2-5 and 2-2-3-5, but each time i tried changing those numbers, the computer wouldn't boot up. each time i had to restart by shutting off the power. upon boot, i held the del key to get back into the bios and changed the settings back to default.

Any ideas on what i'm doing wrong?

thanks

it is set to standard and when i choose manual, it says 200 mhz. also, the ratio is set to 12.

are there standards that I should set these at to optimize my chip or just trial and error?

thanks

Try setting it to 400MHz. with a ratio of 8 if that doesn't work try setting the bios to default check to see if the settings are at auto for the CPU and such and see what that gives you.

i set it to 400 and 8, but the monitor wouldn't turn on. since i'm running pc2700, i tried 333 and 9. i also tried 320 and 10. all of them gave me the same result: the monitor wouldn't turn on. i don't know if that meant that nothing was happening in the computer or if the video signal wasn't getting to the monitor. so each time that happened i had to restart the computer, bet back into the bios and set it to something that would boot. currently, i'm at 266 and 12.

could it be the memory i am using? it is PNY pc2700 (333 mhz). pny is not on asus' list of preffered memory, so i'm not sure if that is part of the problem.

any ideas??

To truly get the performance from the 400Mhz FSB you need to get PC3200 memory.

Here is a pic from the manual.
