    o/c stability problems

    I have a pIII cumine 650e cb0 stepping but I can't pull it at 133 mhz.My mobo is an asus p3v4x and the heatsink is a golden orb.
    Asusprobe says it runs at 40c(In Rome now we have 37c amb temp).
    If I try to set the fsb at 133 my computer freeze when loading the first screen of windows.
    What is wrong?

    Post your system specs please. If it's a cB0 usually what's holding you back from 133MHz FSB is your other components.

    I forgot to mention that the voltage is set at 1.65 as default.
    Have I to go higher?

    -Yes, try upping the voltage. Did you install the 4 in 1 drivers that came with the board? Those really increased the stability on my comp.

    usually it is a video card or memory that holds you back...but it could be your heat...i donno...got mine at 910 stable

    Voltage is the first thing I would try. Your CuMine is probably good for at least 1.85 Volts. Your problem sounds like it would be solved with a bump in the voltage. However tweak the voltage at your own risk even if it's minimal.

    Make sure that @ 133MHz FSB your AGP & PCI divisors are at 1/2 and 1/4 respectively.

    Thanks for your suggestions folks!
    I'll try to go higher with the voltage and, yes, I installed the 4 in 1 drivers.
    The bios of my mobo doesn't allow to set the division between agp and pci.
    Only a question:
    what does it happen if if I go too much high whit the Vcore?
