Hi all

Just bought a 2800 Barton core.
I have it in a system that has pc2100 ram.
So I tried setting my mobo(Shuttle ak38-n) jumper to 166 fsb and it crashes right away at win boot up.
K thats all good ram is 133 not 166.
But when I put the jumper on 133 so the ram and FSB of the cpu run sync in crashes still.
Sometimes I get to windows and it crashes on testing(3d mark)
When it crashes I get an alarm type sound coming out of the case speaker and it doesn't stop till I pull the power cord out.
I have seen on other forums that this cpu may not be able to run with this ram, is that so?

BTW, cpu heat is 55c as reported in the bios and bios is set to 75c max before shutdown.

Any help guys would be great, TY

Well, when I first bought my 2800 XP I had PC-2100 RAM for over a year before I bought new RAM, so I don't think that should be your problem, but I won't rule it out. I am not sure yet of how I can help, but ill do some looking around, see if I can find anything that helps. Some thing I can reccomend to you is to change that CPU threshold to 60C, anything over that temp is not good. Is that 55C at idle or load ? Get a desktop monitoring program that will monitor temps. I don't know one of hand, but others do.

That temp is at idle.
Got the temp from within the bios.

Currently looking for a program to tell me temp from within windows.

When you had that setup with 2100 ram did you run the whole system at 133 or fsb 266, or did you have your ram at 266 and cpu at 333?

TY for your help, don't want to go out and buy new ram until I know I NEED to.

Can you list the rest of your system specs including the true capacity of your power supply...What I mean by that is not whats written on the side like "400W" I mean what are the amperage (A) specs for each voltage on the side of the power supply for:
3.3V = ?A
+5V =?A
+12V =?A
+5VSB =?A

Antec pp-303x 300w
3.3V = 14a
+5V =30a
+12V =10a
+5VSB =2.0a

Wriiten on the side of the psu, hope this helps and TY

Looks bad...

These are the minimum recommended in the AMD desktop builders guide from 2002!
+3.3V = 28A
+5.0V = 30A
+12.0V = 15A-18A
+5VSB = 2A-2.5A

Use these as a starting point...If you want to run a modern system, you're going to need more capacity.

K, well I have it running on fsb 133 (266) in sync with my ram.
have been running BF1942 in ghost mode for 30 min no crash.

? is, should I leave my cpu fsb to match my ram or up it by o.c.
It is running at 1.66 right now but of course it can go up to 2.08.

You'll have a hard time overclocking with such a low capacity supply...

uhg, nevermind, it crashed again.

I get this wierd alarm sound when it crashes.
Blank screen, and the alarm doesn't stop till I pull the power cord.

BTW, my temp is like 55c could I be overheating it?

Again I saw that a soyo or something like that mobo did not support the 2800 at 133.
Could my mobo be the same?

I will try different ram I have lying around and I guess a diff psu too.

TY guys
