Overclocking problem

  1. Hello!

    I'm having a problem when I try to overclock past 149MHz FSB. Whenever I jump up to 150MHz, the PCI bus goes down to 30MHz, and my memory bus goes all the way down to 300MHz. When I'm @ 149MHz, the memory bus is @ 372MHz! And to top it off, there's a message in the sidebar saying to check if the memory bus is under 333MHz. And it is...

    What's causing this problem? Can I fix it somehow? I would really like to overclock above 149MHz. 1936MHz just isn't enough :stickout:

    Thanks in advance.

    And BTW, my specs are in my profile.

    Bah I don't really think that matters...

    I tried booting with the FSB at 155MHz, it booted fine until Windows started up - gave me a "Windows could not boot because blah blah file is corrupt or missing."

    I rebooted back at 149MHz and it was fine.

    Man, Windows is crap for overclocking.

    Is this a problem I can fix?
