  1. ok when i try to raise the FSB on my athlon xp 2400 +, i save and exit the bios, when it tries to reload, i get nothing on the screen. in order to get anything i have to reset the cmos with the jumper. does this mean that i cant go over 150 mhz when io wanna overclock? cause i have it at 143*15 and im getting 2.16 ghz. i really wanna try to push the fsb to 200 and lower the multiplier to 10, but apparently i cant. is there any way that you guys can help me out and tell me what to do. the vcore is still set at 1.65. do i have to increase it and\or the ram voltage? help me plz

    In order to increase the FSB any higher you will have to increase the voltage (up to around 1.75V should be safe), but you will need to lower your multiplier to get anywhere need 200 FSB, and in order to do that you will need to mod your athlon with either the bridge trick or the wire trick. Remember though that more voltage=more heat, so make sure your cooling is up to the job.

    Pin mods are by far the easiest way to change the multiplier. And, there is a very easy way to do it that does not physically alter the proecssor or the board(i.e. is not permanent), and that is dropping 30 gauge wire into the cpu socket itself to connect pins.

    Here is a great guide on it:
