1) how can i up the FSB of my CPU in my sig to 266? It says i am running at 133.

2) Also, where can i go to see if my ram is running correctly....PC-2700 DDR333 512mb.

3) What can i do to tweak my system? i currently don't have any tweaks and scored 9k on 3dmark...anything else i can do to tweak this baby?

4) Any software out to tweak my TI 4400?

5) Thanks.

1) the FSB on the athlon XP chips run off a DDR system which means that it says its running a 133 cycle but its actually running a 266 cycle because of the DDR system. I learned that here too :D

2) just make sure the computer recognizes it on the POST and that will tell you its running correctly....however clock speeds are different. Im sure someone will post a program (I dont have one on me right now and no links...new comp)

3) try OClocking your CPU? howabout your vid card? there are little tweaks you can do but I dont know if it will get you that high of numbers......turn your 2000+ into a 1.7 ghz and up the vid card a lil and you should suck a little more power out of the two with stock fans without a problem.

4) none I know of

DDR 333 Memory needs to run @166 FSB. Check ram settings in bios.
