Hey guy's, this won't boot at 133 fbs. When i first put this machine together it worked fine at 133. Had this xp1900 (I think), 2 sticks of pc 2100. Like a month after that, it quit booting. I cleared the CMOS and it booted fine. but the default was 100mhz. so now for the last 6 months it's been running at 1200mhz instead if 1700 or so.
I just got a 512 stick of 2700 and it still won't load at 133...I'm starting to get frustrated. I've tried mutiple settings, changing the mutiplier, the CAS timing, ect... no luck. Right now i'm running the speed spectrum at +.75% and the memory at +33. just to tweak the 100 fbs. but when i turn up to 133 i shut all that [content edited] off Here is my CpuZ txt..
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to the forum, please post all of your system specs including the aparant amperages available for your power supply, see the sticker on the side.

Also do a hardware inspection as it is well known that there are literally millions of motherboards in the wild with bad capacitors on them, so have a quick look at those!
