How do get my FSB Higher now???
You can see my system specs below.
I bought my OCZ premier because I was told that it could reach 230~240mhz with like 2.9v. Well, that turned out to be wrong.
I can't get my fsb much higher than 220mhz with 2.9v with 2.5-4-4-9 timings(stock 2.5-3-3-7) even if i set the multiplier to 8x on my 2600+ mobile! This is really sad!
I wanted to know if the processor fsb can go as high as it wants as long as the memory is good enough, or if some processors just cant handle a 230mhz bus, let alone a 250mhz FSB? If i just got a weenie CPU chip, it wouldnt be worth it to try better memory.
Should I definetely buy some expensive memory with tccd or bh-5 chips, or should i give up and resort to tighter timings without the bandwidth?
Any memory suggestions?
