Hi,

Here it is, after switching from epox to Asus strange things happened to my system.

1. my gf 256 ddr posts sometimes as a 16 mb card.
2. when i set my memory settings to 133 mhz windows won't defrag. It starts and after 10 sec or so, windows freezes and i have to reset to get out.
So i thought maybe the memory is bad or can't handle 133/or the mobo, so i set the memory on 100 mhz and the bus speed on 107.
After i made these settings i couldn't switch back; the machine
started up at 749 mhz even though i tried to switch back in the bios
to 100 mhz.
Strange thing is that when i turned off jumper free mode, the computer posted at770 mhz even though the settings were 100/ multiplier 7.
What is this? is it bad memory? bad mobo? bad cpu?

**update**
After disconnecting the computer for a few hours it started up the way it should be, but the other problems are still the same.


My system:
asus a7v mobo
cube memory 128 mb pc 133
asus gforce 256 ddr
ibm 34 gxp 20 gb
athlon thunderbird 700 + silver orb + cooling paste

Did you reinstall everything or just switch the motherboards ?
Do you have the same problems if you don't overclock at all ?

check it unoverclocked
if you still have the problem ask the place you got it from...

i do!

I even set the memory on 100 mhz, and the other bios settings conservative, but even then it won't run stable.
Strange thing is that Quake runs fine, and 3d mark runs for hours, i cant figure out whitch component is choking my system.
