My guess is he is running the front side bus at 50mhz (as genuine DX50
do) vs the 33mhz fsb that the Am5x86-133 is designed for (33.3*4 = 133,
50*4 = 200).
I wouldn't have imagined that part would handle a 50% overclock. I have not
found many processors in my limited overclocking experience that exceed 20%
overclock w/o fiddling with "excessive" cooling, increasing core
I have been running a 2.4 Prescott P4 at 3.0Ghz... but once in a while
until it is
warmed up it will blue screen and reboot.... so I've backed it off to
2.8 to see how
it goes.... I'm wary of jacking the core voltage... (although it isn't
so I don't have to worry about SNDS). I may inherit some 2.8GHZ Prescott
P4s with 800mhz fsb (vs the 2.4/533 I have now OC'd to 2.8)... so may go
one of those :-) (plus they have HT (woo... moan...).
