    How did you try to OC the processor? Not all nForce 2 boards will run at 400mhz FSB and some need a BIOS upgrade. Also the 2500's are clock locked so you cant change the multiplier, just the bus speed. You may also need to raise the processor voltage a little to get it to run at 3200, from 1.65v to 1.7v.

    You have to go into the BIOS and change the front side bus setting from 166 to 200. It should be under Advanced Chipset Features, FSB Frequency.

    I was born in America. I was just kidding about Canada. Ive been involved with computers for about 10 years. I guess that makes me an official geek. Im guessing you are from China.
