Can I raise MB's FSB to 333/400Mhz using an AMD ATHLON XP 2200 rated @266Mhz?
Posted on 2008-06-10
1. AMD Athlon XP 2200 @266Mhz CPU
2. AsRock S741 socket A MB, Highly overclockable. FSB is 200/266/333/400; My choice.
QUESTION IS: Can I set the FSB on the MB above 266Mhz, if CPU is rated at only 266Mhz?
I already raised it from the default of 200 to 266, by way of jumpers, and things are well. Just wondering if I can raise the FSB any higher, to 400Mhz without blowing things up.
I have already have moved 6 jumpers to get this set-up above the anemic default of 1300Mhz and 2 full multipliers backwards out of the OEM boxes. 6 jumpers in all.
It is a Thoroughbred type 8 Processor, very fast back in its day, when it was released, OF ALL DAYS, on JUNE 10, 2002.
Thank you in advance.
