    Is it just me, or is my P-III 700 hard to get past 800 mHz

    Hey guys, I have a p-III 700 cumine and I was wondering weather or not more cooling would help me break this seemingly taunting limit... I can get windows to boot at 820 ish, but after that, I have a hard time getting my Mother board to get past my PCI configuration. I am using an Abit BE-6 r2 MB and I have an Elsa Erazor X@ GeForce, SB Live!, 256 of 7ns SDram, WD HDD on ATA/66 channel, Netgear Nic, Creative DVD Decoder, and around 17 fans in my case, no peltier or liquid cooling yet... I guess I was wondering just how fast a CPU heats up, I mean, can it get too hot even before it can boot to windows? If so, will active cooling let me boot? If i keep it cool enough, how unstable can it get and how high should I force it. Right now I am 100% stable a 805 (115x7) and I want more speed Anyway, enough of this novel, thanks in advance for any help, talk to you all later.

    Do you have your PCI set to 1/3 or 1/4? Maybie increase the voltage to the next level. What cooling fan/heat sink do you have now?

    Why don't you jump to 133mhz because the 1/2 agp divider and 1/4 pci divider will kick in.

    I don't know why a 700e cannot get pass 900mhz.

    make sure your RAM are in the DIMM slots closest to the slot 1, it helps a bit ... also try flashing to the jq (or was it qj again) BIOS.

    How loud is your case? With 17 fans how the heck can you think?

    I agree how do you hear around that system. I have a 50mm fan on my vid card, 60mm global win HS for my CPU and 1 90mm case and it is too loud. I am going to watercoolng to quiet the system down a bit!

    If you need 17 fans, you are doing something VERY, VERY wrong.

    I have 4 fans in my system:
    PSU, CPU, intake and a PCI-Slot fan over my video card.
    I OC my Athlon 500 to 798Mhz and I know for a fact that my athlon at 798Mhz produces more heat than your CUmine at anything less than around 900 Mhz will.
    My GeForce isnt what I would call a "cool" VGA car either.

    I cant see how 17 fans would actually be even the slightest bit more effective than 5 or so - it might actually make things worse, which is what might be the case.

    How are the fans positioned in your case?
    Got a diagram? I figure you can double up the PSU, CPU, PCI and Intake fans and make them work in pairs, so I can conceed that 8 fans might still be better than 4 - but 17???
    No way...its gotta be creating turbulence that is impeding the flow of warm air out of your case.

    Not being an expert on CUmines, I would say a 700Mhz chip should get to 850 on air cooling, unless its a very early 700, with an actualy 700 core (not just rated at 700, but 700 really being the near the limit). If the latter is the case, then may this is as good as it gets with air cooling.
    But first sort out those fans!

    Tiberia, I never thought of that one. he could be creating pressure within the case which in turn creates heat. ALtho most likely not much heat after a while it would add up.

    On the turbulance note, No... I have 5 intake fans on the front and lower sides of the case, one cardfan that takes the heat from my geforce's modified fan and heat sink. CPU with 3 fans, Added second output fan on powersupply, two 80mm fans blowing out the top back of my case, above the power supply, a 5-1/4 bay that has 2 80mm fans mounted on their sides, that are ducted to exhaust ouit of the case, at the very top and two HDD fans that are mounted to the bottom of my WD Expert Hdd's... I thought about the trubulance factor and it just does not exist, in fact, when I hol my hand near the CPU with all the fans on, It is prolly 10-15 degrees cooler that with them off... and the air is moving upward, very fast I only have a 2/3 divisor on my agp, and 1/4 on my PCI (Whoever forgot the 1/2 agp divisor need to be shot....). I used to run my 600 Cu and 6x133, no prob. I get the 700, and 115 is the highest fsb I can get out of it... This is also my second 700 Cu.... I just don't get it... Oh yeah, the case is quite quiet.
