It can cause a no post and result in you having to manually clear the cmos. If you do that change you will not only be trying to run 400FSB, you will be trying to push the CPU to 2.3 GHz over 1.91 GHz stock. How would you know you ram can run at DDR400 anyway?

I have the same sort of question.
I have an Athlon XP 2400+ running at 266 FSB and PC3200 DDR ram (although my MoBo only supports up to PC2700). What would you say is the highest FSB I could use. I have tried using a program called easytune 4 and I raised the FSB to about 360 but then my computer reset.

I have a 2600+ Barton with some DDR400 ram, and I'd love to get my FSB up to 400. What I would probably have to do though, is increase the voltages. If you want to increase the voltages as you raise the FSB, go at incriments of .025 so you don't end up accidentally killing it, and make sure not to get it over .2 more than the normal. That goes with RAM too, but with RAM its normally safe to increase at .1 incriments, still trying not to go about .2


P.s. Increased voltages make the processor run more stable, so increasing the voltages would help the FSB run stabler at high speeds. This is why I suggest (as do most overclockers) it
