Despite my temps, what do you think is preventing me from changing my fsb?
Heres a zip file with screen shots from cpu-z.

Juzus,
Where to start -

1) Up the CPU voltage,
2) Drop the CAS timings on your memory,
3) DECREACE the multiplier, INCREACE the FSB

For starters, and why have you disabled Side Band Addressing and only running at 4x AGP?

his mx440se probably doesn't support agp4x. no loss anyway--4x is fine.

X, are you saying you can't increase your fsb at all? like 135 won't work?

Yes.
Anything higher than 133 makes my system crash. (BSOD)
Very weird.

Questions:
How do i up the voltage??
How do i drop the cas timings??
How do i decrease the multiplier??

i don't think any of those would help your situation. you have something in your bios or maybe just with your board that prevents a fsb change. any board should be able to go 1 or 2mhz above stock.

:confused: dunno.

Well, it can run @ 1.67 ghz at a stable rate.
FSB is at 134...
Hehe...
What could be the problem??
(Currently it's at 1.66 ghz) stock speed...

well your board isn't made by the best of comapnies. overclockers and enthusiasts wouldn't even consider ECS. but we should be able to get a little bit out of it.

first off, make sure your memory's running synchronous to your fsb. in other words, 266mhz, equivalent to pc2100. synchronous is almost always better anyway.

next, disable some options in the bios. namely advanved pci and agp functions like fast writes, agp master 1 ws write, agp master ws read, and pci 1/2 master 0 ws write. these were listed in your manual so you should have them.

then while in your bios, turn off all ports and devices you don't use. includes, game port, parallel port, serial ports, firewire, modem, sound, floppy controller, etc. a lot of these devices run off the pci bus so any one of them could be limiting it.

try that for now and see if you can get any further.

BSOD is a windows function which means the system is booting. So you can set to higher FSB. Also the chipset is the VIA KT333 and it's a newer mainboard so I don't expect that to be the problem.

When exactly is the system crashing?
During Boot? (MB, RAM, or processor can't handle the higher FSB)
Windows splash screen? (peripheral hardware)
Once the desktop is up? (possibly video)
When you start launching applications? (video or thermal)
After you've run a while? (Thermal problem)

First suspect would be that video card. The FSB is probably locked to the AGP clock. ECS stuff is ok for simple desktop systems, but it is not intended for overclocking so the features are not there (like independently setting, ram, pci, agp and fsb speeds). The AGP slot speed did not show up in your screen shots.

Thanks taurus, i'll test it.

LeeJend, it crashes before booting up. (NTOSKRNL, The windows boot up)

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
