    using two 512megs pc2700 under winXP

    With the CPU external frequency set a 133MHz everything runs fine, if I bump it up
    to 166 or 200 the system becomes unstable. The machine keep sending out errors
    and sponatiously restarts.

    Any ideas what could be the problem?

    Possibly the RAM. I had a similar issue with my standard A7N8X (both of them) because I was using Crucial RAM. Change to Samsung and problems disappeared.

    PC2700 should run at 166.

    I can't get my A7N8X Deluxe rev 1.03 to work with my PC2700 Samsung RAM (2x512mb sticks) @ 166. Clocking them to 150 Mhz works though. However, I have had those DIMMS for 2 years now, so I blamed the RAM.

    I did upgrade the BIOS though...maybe I can try 166MHz again...
