Athlon XP fsb speed Tags: CPUs PCI Devices Windows XP Last response: July 9, 2002 12:06 PM in CPUs Share Baztian July 8, 2002 5:31:31 PM Just a theoretical question: can the Athlon XP handle a FSB speed of 166Mhz? ´Cause you can only use ddr333 to its full potential if used with 166Mhz FSB, right? I know that the AGP and PCI devices would complain, but not if I had a divider of 5:2:1... Thanks for your reply, Baztian More about : athlon fsb speed Matisaro July 8, 2002 6:32:43 PM Yes if you lower the multiplier or get a 1600+ and a good heatsink ,the athlon can always handle the 166 fsb. :wink: The Cash Left In My Pocket,The BEST Benchmark :wink: lhgpoobaa July 9, 2002 12:21:24 AM Course it can, but one really needs an unlocked CPU first (or one that can handle a 20% oc well) as well as a overclocking friendly motherboard. some brands wernt really designed for overclocking. So I fixed my BIG PC problem by pressing the reset button. I'm not a moron am i? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
