System becomes unstable

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by David Sadtwat, Jan 9, 2004.

  1. I have a 2600 AMD chip on a board than can go up to 2800. There is plenty of
    cooling within the system. Anyway, when I set the FSB to 166 so that the
    chip can be read at its correct value of 2600, the system becomes very
    unstable. So, I reduce it to 133 (2000) and it's fine. I'm not sure what's
    going on - do any of you?


    PS. My MB is an Epox Nforce2 EP-8RDA/EP-8RDA+

    The XP2600+ runs with a 133 MHz FSB at a speed of 1900 MHz, unless you
    have a Barton core XP2600+ CPU, in which case, the speed is the same
    (1900 MHz) at 166 MHz FSB. Which do you have?

  3. My first guess would be memory speed (Jumper?)... but that's just me.
