If i put my F/S/B to 225 x8 then all is fine, If i go 1Mhz higher it still boots up but back to stock 1600Mhz although still says 226x8 in the bios! /dry.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="<_<" border="0" alt="dry.gif" />
First off..are you new to overclocking? I bought the same board and installed yesterday.
I had the same problem with the BIOS, but I somehow got to 280 X 8 (2.24GHZ) @ 1.5 vcore.
I have a Sempron 64 2800+....I heard that the BIOS V 1.7 is not good for overclocking and that could be
the reason. I have that BIOS and I will definitely re-flash to BIOS 1.5 today, because it is definitely being
touted as the Ultimate stable BIOS for OCing..if of course you don't mind incorrect voltage readings and
your Sempron will not be detected as it's proper name.
What multi are you using? I am using 3X as my system did not want to work properly at 2X with a 280 FSB.
Post back when you can and I hope this helps! Good luck!
btw..I just upgraded from an ECS 755 A2. Since I use IDE cables and not SATA drives, I had no problem with the PCI/AGP locks. I am sure that they are locked on this motherboard because my Sempron was clocked at the max HTT for this board. 250 X 8 = 2 GHZ. I had no problems at all with this board in this
configuration and I only upgraded to the NF8 because I need Vcore selection, amongst other things.
