    If that's a tbred core your pretty much max'd out. See my rant in another post.

    If it's a Barton you have a little room to go up but not much.

    You may have to up the voltage a little (5%), but it sounds like you're pretty much max'd out on that CPU. If you do up the voltage watch the temperature closely until your sure it stablizes.

    I have an palomino 1700 that runs perfect at 1900 with no voltage adjust but it won't budge a bit over that no matter how much extra cooling or voltage I give it. The chip internal timing is hitting its limit.

    wait, the 2500+ can do 11x200 with no extra voltage, no problem. your 2800+ should be able to hit 12x200 at least.

    it's that pc2700 that worries me. you changed the fsb:memory divider to 6:5 when changing your fsb, right? otherwise you're trying to push your memory to 400mhz along with your fsb and that's just too much for the 333mhz memory to take.

    well, there you go. once you increase your fsb to 400, you need to change your fsb/memory divider to make sure your memory stays running at 333mhz and not 400.

    Hey, I have a Gigabyte 7VRX mobo and running a 2100+ cpu.
    I would like to ask how could I OC it through hardware?
    I think the voltage settings cannot be altered because in the bios, I cannot highlight it at all. Anyway to get around this, or am I just talking rubbish?

    I haven't got a clue about overclocking to be honest, but with a bit of guidance, I should be able to follow it easily.

    Oh, one last thing. Does anyone know what the CPU limit is for my mobo?

    athlon xp 2600+ (266fsb) is the fastest cpu your board supports.
