After reading the $89 e2160 overclocking article I decided to jump in and see if I can replicate the results with a new Foxconn P35A-S motherboard and e2160 processor.
I have built several systems but am a Noob at OCing and haven't overclocked since my Socket-A days. The Foxconn BIOS is confusing me. I can get it to post and run windows fine at stock speeds but can't figure out how to change the FSB.
When I try to Change the "CPU FSB Over Clock Choice" I can only enter values 800 and higher. When I tried a high value I got some message when I booted that said something about the CPU being at 200mhz bus speed. When I changed it to 1333 the system won't even post.
I am using an EVGA 8800GTS 320MB and Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory.
