|ok, i should add some things. |
first thing, i got a 9600gt nvidia geforce vcard.
second, i could boot XP with up to 417 FSB. trying anything higher wouldent boot, even with higher voltage.
3rd, my mobo is very lmited. i cant stress this enough. i got very little options to choose from. even for cpu, i cant really choose voltage, only got like 3 options (auto, 1.2v, 1.3v)
so with auto cpu voltage, 417 fsb xp boots, 418 fsb with w/e voltages on memory/cpu and xp wont boot.
now, for what you suggested:
i was able to disable (lol pun :D) enhanced halt state and speedstep. was able to set memory to 667hz and fsb to 400. im typing right now with those settings. i couldent find any other of the settings you mentioned anywhere in the bios.
no spread spectrum, saw something about pcie but nothing about locking it to 100hz, and nothing about cia2.
when im starting up the game, it starts stuttering and freezing right away.
any ideas what dto do this time?
also, why cant i OC past 3.0? i saw posts here of people with 2.4 basic clockspeed who got to 3.5 ghz after OC!
