I've got a P3 800, and the highest i can get it to is 110 bus. I've got an Abit BH6, but as far as I can tell, it's a CPU problem. It's gonna be really hard to convince the techs at the store I bought it from that it won't stay stable at factory speed. I tried pushing the voltage up to an insane 1.8v, just to have to put my old CPU in to get it to post something besides 912 MHz and not to lock up. It is stable at 840 Mhz (105FSB) and possibly stable at 880 Mhz (110FSB.) It will not boot at 115FSB. PLZ Help!
Someone got theirs to 966...(only entry.) It has to be the CPU or the mobo, because this exact same setup went 133FSB with my 450. The motherboard is a BH6. Maybe I need a peltier... But is heat the problem?
Sheesh I don't know what to say/The chip is so new/ that none of us has anything to base any reliable facts on it....But..... Post your specs here/ ie mobo revision, week of the cpu/ ram/ "N" rating of the ram/ Video card/ other cards in your puter/ the works,,, and we'll see what we can do...
Help me get this Boot outta my azz!!!!
Get a copy of CPUid and let us know what the stepping is. I have a feeling that Flash is correct. The stepping change was to make things more stable at the 1000 Mhz range. And the early copermines might be lucky to touch 1000 Mhz.
