Athlon XP over Kinetiz 7T

I have a Kinetiz 7T (Bios 4.1 LCP) with Athlon XP 2400+ (2.0 Ghz), but running at 1800+ (1.5 Ghz), because the FSB is working at 100 Mhz & not 133 Mhz.

How make real the overclocking option (133 Mhz FSB)?

According to that <A HREF="http://www.qdigrp.com/qdisite/eng/Products/K7T.htm" target="_new"> link </A>, your mobo doesnt support the 2400+...

You can read there:..BIOS modification:
1. Fixed: Cannot recognize Athlon XP CPU above 2200+. Please note that this mainboard model does not really support those processors because this mainboard model does not support 133MHz processors like the Athlon XP. This BIOS is just by request for the recognition on the KinetiZ 7E. For details about actual compatibility please visit our Central Processing Unit (CPU, processor) and cooling page in our support section.


So, unless you get a new board, you're stuck at 1.5Ghz...

I know this all. Only the overclocking jumper is decorative.

The chipset KT133 simply doesnt support 133MHz..KT133A do. So, maybe you'll be able to overclock a littlelike 110MHz fsb... But not 133Mhz.

Pat tells truth does. KT133 was unstable at 133MHz, it was a design flaw that became known after the chipset was named, but before it went to market. KT133A chipset solved that issue, but your board has the earlier KT133 chipset.

Well, at this point, how do overclocking in the range 100-133 Mhz FSB & not overload de pci bus (36/37/40 Mhz...). By software maybe...

PCI bus shouldn't be an issue with most cards, as the chipset rarely has the ability to exceed 115MHz FSB, and often tops out around 112MHz as I recall.

The cards PCI are very sensitive to the changes in the bus,
and would also be affected the bus AGP?

I've never seen a PCI card that couldn't handle 38MHz, nor an AGP card that couldn't handle 76MHz.

Maybe another problem. At 112 Mhz FSB the system is not stable. I have 3 pc133 modules of memory (512+128+128), and the system does not boot at 133 mhz for the memory bus with the new bios versions. The system is not stable to 112 Mhz on account of the memory?

When you raise your CPU bus, you raise your RAM bus as well. So if you set your RAM at 133MHz with a 100MHzCPU bus first, then increase your CPU bus by 12% to 112, your RAM gets increased by 12% to 149MHz. Most PC133 won't do that.

So that answer to that problem is to set your RAM at 100MHz speed and your CPU at 100MHz, then overclocking the CPU bus to 112 will increase your RAM to 112 as well.

The RAM Bus is 100. Actually works to 109 Mhz as the FSB. If configured to 133 the system donĀ“t boot, but if only connect 2 slots (512&128MB) works fine again.
Crashman, i think is not easy to resolve. The hardware dont give more.

Well, 109 isn't terrible for that chipset, I'd start thinking about a new board.
