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,

Yes if you lower the multiplier or get a 1600+ and a good heatsink ,the athlon can always handle the 166 fsb.

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? :lol:
