166Mhz FSB that supports 168pin SDRAM? :S
Guys, I'm new here, but I have a bit of a problem.
I recently upgraded my computer, and the upgrades included RAM and processor. I have 640MB (totalled that is - I have two memory modules) PC133 168pin DIMM memory (that's what my old processor), and an Athlon XP 2600+ 333Mhz processor. Now I didn't realise about FSB settings and such, and only after buying the proccessor and having it run at 1275Mhz (supposed to be around 2.2Ghz) I found out that I needed a motherboard that supported a 166Mhz FSB setting. My current mobo only goes up to 112Mhz.
The trouble is... I can't find a motherboard that supports PC133 168Pin memory -AND- 166Mhz FSB! It's driving me mad because I really don't want to have to replace the stuff I've bought. If anyone knows of a motherboard that I can use I'd be very very grateful It should be Socket A and support AMD proccessors - but I'm sure you all know that already :S
I've read a couple of places that motherboards such as the 'Asus CUV4X' and 'ECS K7S5A' (these are just random examples and there is probably alot more) can be set to run at 166Mhz FSB, even though on their specs they only say they support 100-133Mhz FSB. Can someone enlighten me? If I purchased one of these motherboards and clocked it up to 166Mhz would that solve my problems?
Thanks for your time reading this, I really appreciate it.
Oh yeah, I'm only 16 and I don't exactly have much money. I live in the UK and I don't really wanna spend more than £40 on a motherboard... (yeah I'm tight I know - but if there aren't any under £40 then still tell me anyway :P). And I don't have a sound card either - do all motherboards come with onboard sound? What about the two I mentioned?
Cheers dudes. Ciao.
