    Well here is my problem i have a P4 2.4ghz cpu and a p4pe asus mobo, a thermaltake big typhoon cpu cooler and a radeon 9200 video card. and a 350 watt power supply. the highest fsb i can go is 161. if i go higher the screen freezes during windows start up. I know this cpu can go alot higher with this cooler i need to know what else i have to change or what setting i need to change to get there and stay there stably. here are all my screens from cpuz.

    I'm not sure what your asking
    Your system freezes for a bit during startup?

    "if i go higher the screen freezes during windows start up." what does that mean? If what goes higher.


    More details and better English would help.

    You may need to change the multiplier around.

    Maybe this chip isn't as good as you think

    Also, make sure you've got the newest BIOS update for your board. It could be you bought the board back when they were planning to offer support for your chip in the future, and they eventually did update the BIOS to support it, but if you don't have the newest BIOS your setup won't work right.

    How high do you want to go? I've got mine sitting at 166 FSB for 2.99GHz. Try increasing your voltage little by little till you get stability or you don't feel comfortable.
