  1. I overclocked the fsb of my xp2400 to 166 and lowered the multiplier to 12.5 but the memory frequency is still 200. Is the ram running 400mhz?

    Seeing as you're new to setting up a CPU ( your previous thread clearly showed that ), I don't think it would be a good idea to start overclocking allready. Read up on some articles explaining how everything works, & once you feel you know it better, start playing around with some settings.

    Did you get the system running at stock speeds allready ? & BTW keep the memory in Sync with the FSB. It's no use having the memory run faster then the FSB.

    RAM frequency is adjusted independently of CPU FSB.
