Maybe someone can help me sort this, it's bugging me.
Aight so I have an AMD A64 3200+. It's 2.0GHz stock. I've got it to 2.35GHz but it isn't stable. Prime95 lasts about 2 hours until it crashes and my BF2 keeps freezing and crashing my computer.
Now, I have crappy DDR400 RAM. It only runs at 166MHz anyways for whatever reason, but I put it down to 133MHz for the OC, so it should be around 166MHz if I could get the FSB that high. Right, so, I can't...
I'm at like 2.27GHz right now, that's stable..but anything 2.3 or higher is not.
RAM timings are 2.5-2-2-6 (at 150MHz).
HTT link is like 940MHz or so (set at 800 for the OC). Spread spectrum is disabled (I read somewhere to disable that, I don't even know what it's for but mmkay).
Temps are fine, 35*C or so at idle and like 43*C or so at load.
I tried upping the voltage one step higher than stock (like ~1.47v).
So what gives here? I hope I didn't just get a lemon. Some people on here have these chips up around 2.9GHz.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
