I have just upgraded my system using an ASRock 775i65G motherboad and an Intel Core 2 Duo E6300. In the bios the FSB for the processor is detected as 200, though as far as i am aware this should be 266?
When i manually change the FSB to 266, the PC posts and boots but then crases to a BSOD.
Ram is DDR crucial 2700 333. Chip is only registering as 1.4 Ghz in system properties at 200 FSB.
Any suggestions? In the BIOS when i change the FSB to 266 the chip registers as 1.87 Ghz not the 1.86 GHz it should do, is this significant?
Your problem lies with your ram.To attain the correct FSB speed you need DDR2 533 (2 x 533 =1066).I don't know if your M/B will support this, but as you say your using standard DDR it maybe that the board is not recent enough. Gazza.
According to the manual a FSB1066 CPU is only supported when used in conjunction wih a seperate AGP graphics card and not the onboard graphics. Also you should use DDR400 CL2.5 memory. See page six of the manual.
