im currently running at 806mhz-6.5x124fsb. when i go to 133fsb i get windows registry problems and it wont continue booting. i dont understand why windows is stopping me. i have asus p3bf, 650e coppermine@806, pc133ram, viper770. before when trying to go to 865mhz it wouldnt get past post so i got the pc133ram and it fixed that but now it gets as far as saying starting windows98 then i get that registry check thing and it wont continue, why would windows stop me from the increase?? any thought would be greatly appreciated.

try win2k.. mm i dunno that's REALLY odd...i can't get my celeron to run on a 100 mhz bus but others have :\. oh well i dunno man i'd just say be happy w/ the 806.. get more cooling and try again maybe. who knows. windows is dumb sometimes.. it'd odd because it shouldn't have a darned thing to do with the registry..also try maybe getting norton utilities and having it optimize everything

usually its your hdd if your registry is getting errors in it.. your hdd might not like the 133 FSB speed, maybe your divider isn't working right then
