Can't Change The Fsb Speed For My Athlon Xp 3000+

I just bought an Athlon XP 3000+ (clock speed 2.167GHz) but it's only running at 1304Mhz according to the "AMD core centre" with FSB 119 MHz and multiplier 11.0x. I've tried changing the fsb speed and multiplier in the bios to various different configurations multiplying to up to 2.1 GHz, but whenever I change it, the computer just doesn't boot (I press the power button and it powers up but doesn't beep or put anything on the screen) and I then have to clear the CMOS with a jumper on the motherboard.

Does anyone have any advice?

What model motherboard is it. And is your heatsink properly fastend. if its not the computer will shut down once the CPU reaches critical temperatures.

After overclocking your cpu have you adjusted your memorys clock speed?
An AMD 64 bit 3000 can run very stable at 2 gigs. you should get about 2.2 gigs.
I would check all you memory sticks and see what the lowest speed is. If one of your dims
Is at 333 mhz then you cant clock the memory at 400 MHz. Most of the time this is set as a default speed. A good way to check if your memorys clock speed is incorrect is to select Top Performance in the bios. If your computer doesnít boot then you have a memory mismatch. Also if your memory is set to Dual channel all your dims need to be the same.
I would also download Sandra lite. Itís a good program to check the voltage on your CPU, Memory
and video card. This could save you a lot of time.
