    I Need a Faster Bus Please!

    I read in a review of the ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe that the the FSB went from 100 - 300Mhz in steps of 1Mhz. But on my bios the FSB adjusts only to 100Mhz, 133, 166Mhz and 200Mhz.

    Is there any other way I can adjust the front side bus as 200Mhz just isn't enough?!?!

    On the old A7N8X you had to adjust the setting to user defined I think so you can set the bus speed manually rather than the standard values.

    Thats the problem i can define the speed but the only settings I can chose are 100, 133, 166 and 200Mhz (e.g. 170Mhz is impossible!)

    You have to choose 'expert' settings somewhere in the BIOS to unlock the BUS speed settings so you can choose incremental values.
    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.
