Ok, I'm just starting... i have changed my Front Side bus to 200mhz and the multiplicator to 9.5 so i should get 1900mhz right? that's what i got but about....15 minutes later my computer restarted without a notice lol. can someone explain me why did my computer did that? like to run it at 2.1 or 2.2ghz....i'm with my stock fan the AMD fan....i plan to buy a fan like the CoolerMaster Jet7 or a thermaltake Volcano 12 , 11+ or 9 .....what is better? i dunno if the Jet7 is good but it looks good lol..anyway if someone can help me i'd be verry happy :D lol

If it crashes i have to lower down the FSB or the multiplicator?

my FSB is currently set at 200 should i set it at 199 or 198 ??

 

will prime 95 tell me why did my computer crashed? i have some 3200 so its not the memory? i can only be my cheap power supply? lol

ive seen peopel getting 2200mhz on the stock cooler try a lil more core voltage say 1.75 but keep a eye on your temps also your ram might need a lil more vdimm set that to 2.7 or 2.8 11x200 for 3200+ speeds with the stock fan can be reached just be sure you have good case cooling

 

what type of cooling did you use on those 10 2500+ the few ive seen do 2200mhz @stock voltages were on slk800 or 900 heatsinks
