Can't run my pc2400 higher than 133mhz :/

Well, it seems that I can't change the speed of my pc2400 DDR SDRAM with CAS2 from Corsair in the Award BIOS to higher than 133mhz - 266mhz ddr(pc2100)(it wont let me adjust the mhz in the bios). I have a Soltek SL-75DRV2 board with an Athlon XP 1900+ overclocked to 1760mhz(12 x146). I'm thinking maybe if I change the jumper setting on the board to increase the voltage to the ram then that may allow the sdram to run at a higher speed. I'll try that now but I don't think it will work. If anyone is familiar with this board/bios/situation i'm in please enlighten me :)

  1. If you have your FSB set to 146 the RAM is already running at that speed! Most KT-266a based motherboards only allow asynchronous operation at speeds under 133MHz - that is why the memory speed can't be changed at higher speeds.

    I thought a thought, but the thought I thought wasn't the thought I thought I had thought.
  2. ok thanks )
  3. yeah, the ram should let you get up to 150ram & fsb speed, but bear in mind other factors may prevent that, namely:

    1. processor running to fast due to high fsb
    2. PCI/AGP devices not working properly due to resultant high bus speeds
