I recently bought some new hardware!

* Soltek SL-75DRV5 KT333 1AGP 5PCI 3xDDR AC97 Audio ATA/133 Socket A

* AMD Athlon XP 1800+ 1533MHz 128+256Kb 266MHz Socket A

* 512MB DDR PC2700 333MHz Samsung original

...and now I got some questions!

1. Should I be able to run my memories in 333Mhz?
2. If so, how should I turn that on?
3. Currently I have changed the frequency on the motherboard to 166/266. And I got the other switch on 11,5.
4. When I switch to 266/333 the computer wont start, how can I adjust the settings to make it work?
5. I don´t wanna alter anything that aren´t supposed to work thus voiding my guarantee.

Please give some advice!

Best Wishes

pretty sure 166/266 is what you're looking for. the 166 is for your memory... since it's ddr (double data rate) it's actually 166*2 (333). and the 266 is your cpu fsb, which is normal.

good to go, cap'n. }:>

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
