    thanks for your response , i had read this guide before , but unfortunately it didnt help much as i couldnt increase fsb more than 343 , the same issue
  2. Some motherboard, especially the lower end units, have FSB walls, where they just won't go any further. Any BIOS updates that may let you go further?
