Default overclocking question

I have an AMD XP2800. i wanna up the fsb to 400mhz. i calculated that the multipier shoudl be 10.5 x 200, is this right if the processor right now runs at 2100ghz. i want to do this because a. my motherboard supports it and b. my memory is ddr 400 and right now the max i can run it at is 333mhz.

thanks
ryan

You are correct.

I'm thinking your original settings were 166*12.5 = 2075MHz.?

Glad you got your CPU to overclock.

If you want to check your systems stability try running prime 95 for about 8 hours. Its a good measure of your system's stability.

Actually their website has a calculator and shows how long your should run the test on your computer to check for total system stability. Just a FYI, but that's if you want to run the program for over 10 days (you can pause and resume)
