I have a new P4c800 Deluxe MB, Intel p4 2.8c 800fsb, 2 512mb corsair xms memory and ati radeon 9600 pro video. 420 watt power supply.

I keep getting errors for clocking failed unless I set my processor to 120 or 100 and auto for rest witch is running the computer at 1.6 rather than 2.8.

What am I doing wrong, is is the memory, processor or MB? I flashed the motherboard with latest bios and still same problem. Computer locks up when you change the processor to the wrong setting when you exit and save changes to bios. I have the memory in a1 and b1 slots.

Please help, not very impressed with ASUS right now

**** man sounds like my problem:

Asus P4C800 Deluxe
Bios 1008-r4
Pentium 4 @ 2,8 Ghz Hyperthreading & 800 MHz FSB

1)
First time I turn the PC on the only things happening are
drives spinning on, CPU starting but no POST comes up.
So turn the PC off - turn it on again and it posts with the
"overclocking failed" message.
I have all settings @ auto. Seems as ASUS couldn't take care of
the right settings in their artifical intelligence engine - the greatest crap on mother earth !.

2)
When I try to play a 3D game my PC just powers off when it comes to display 3D gfx.
(Radeon 9500 pro, latest drivers, winxp + sp1,
320W Enermax witch is a non p4 version (too old) )


Any suggestions ?
greetings nick

***UPDATE***

I just went to Conrad Electronics getting a new
Enermax AX465FGW-FV P4 Support 4-Pin12V Version 1.2
Power Supply and guess what ?

No Errors any more - can play the **** 3D Games and PC is faster than before !

Thnx to c't magazine I realized that under heavy processing the CPU gets 200-300 W ! (Small power plant needed is printed very small on its box ;) )
I addition to the Radeon 9500pro (which has a 12V Power supply for it's own too) this was too much for my
320W Enermax Power Supply.


Now it's working all fine.
So you guys out there having "overclocking failed" problems:
try another power supply.
A power supply which is too weak
will work but the CPU doens't get the right VCore and will be "underclocked" by the ASUS AI thus not working right.

Well I went with a Gigabyte - GA-KNXP board. Much better, didnt have to do anything just plug and play. I will look into a different case. I thought my 420w powersupply was big enough to run AI(artificial ****) board. I will look at the vcore.

Anyways not impressed with asus or their tech support.

later
