I'm running a Syntax K7SV400 Motherboard which supports this AMD 2800+
I installed a Volcano 11+ I have a PC 2100 DDR 512mb Sapphire 256mb 9600 Pro 520W PSU Win XP
2 intake fans in the front, and 1 120mm exhaust fan in the back. System temp stays around 23-26 degrees C. Processor stays around 30-40 C when its being worked.
Now check this I discovered that this isn't running right last night. 1250mhz? Understandable okay? Well sad thing is when I attempt to clock it right, I have to use the jumpers to clear the settings and I can only set the CPU Clock to 132 instead of getting it to 166 to 167 with the 12.5 mulitplier.
I've moved the CPU Frequency Select Jumper to 166mhz but it acts like it goes way to high for it. Its currently set to 100 mhz and I have 2 other Options, Not Applicable and 133mhz.
Plus even at this speed its totally unstable. At times I get white dots that appear in random places on the screen or around the mouse. Sometimes during music tracks I get the same wave played 10x or more and it resumes. Like you hear some guy say "Who likes to Rock" you play it again he sounds like a retard "Who li i i i i i i i i i i i, likes to rock!" If thats not bad enough
Whats causing my instablity? Why am I not able to crank this puppy up and run it like a thoroughbreed?
But even so it should atleast run like its suppose to. Right? I'm not attempting to overclock the processor more like... normal clock it :-P because this is sooooooooo underclocked but for some reason i can't get it to clock right.
it will never run right. Go buy atleast 2700 now. Otherwise your rig is useless.
