    okie dokie peoples....
    got my new mobo in, an MSI K7N2 Delta2
    thnx to all for your suggestions a few days ago btw
    (it came down to an availability/budget issue, the MSI was the best they had)
    but it installed w/o a hitch, and has all the features i'll need for now
    'k, so on to those features.......
    Everest says i can get my CPU (Athlon XP 2400+ T-bred) up to 3200 MHz
    i figure i was gonna shoot for maybe 2.2/2.4 GHz and see what it does
    my question is....
    current setting are 133MHz x 15 for a clock of about 1.9 GHz
    same as old mobo, but runnin 10-15 degrees cooler now, so i gotta tweak
    would i be better off leaving the multiplier alone and just adjusting the FSB?
    cuz this mobo will let me do just about anything
    FSB in 1MHz increments, change the multiplier, voltage...
    (AGP & RAM clocking too, but blah, aint messin with that)
    i mean i can play around with it and see, but...
    curious to see what has/hasnt worked for anyone else
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    but the FF dont have the user feedback i was lookin for

    i guess the short version of my earlier post would be....
    have people had better luck with...
    higher FSB/lower multiplier, or...
    lower FSB/higher multiplier?
    like....133 x 15 vs. 166 x 12 vs. 200 x 10
    (its a few MHz difference, but close enough to call it a comparison)

    Each situation is different. You'll have to test until you find the best for your system.

    thought it might come to that conclusion, but had to ask
    who knows? i coulda got lucky....
    there may have been another MSI/AMD geek that tried most of it already

    Even someone with exactly the same parts may have different results.

    damn i was confused last night....fkn vicodin
    but yeh already had to f00k with the FSB
    board shipped default @ 100 MHz
    for a clock of a whopping 1.5 GHz
    but ya know....
    i didnt see too big o' difference between the 1.5 & 1.9 GHz clocks
    kinda sux when you accomplish something and feel you have nothing to show for it
