I just received my New Celeron 566 and a MSI converter board MS-6905.

I have never used a slocket before so I am not sure about the jumpers. On the motherboard I believe that I set the CPU bus frequency at the 100mhz setting but what about the multiplier?

On the slocket itself it has jumpers of its own that I am not sure if they need to be changed.

J1 Shorted = automatically detect 66mhz and 100mhz
unshorted virtually set 66mhz to 100mhz FSB. Right now it is set at Automatic.

Motherboard is a Asus P2bf

Never overclocked but found this guide on how to overclock your celeron. It should tell you all you need. http://www.sharkyextreme.com/hardware/celeron_oc/

As for the multiplier I know that it is set at the factory and cannot be changed, but the bus speed can be. You just need 100+Mhz RAM and a TON of cooling.

I am running a Thermaltake Cooler. This is a pre tested chip and it ran Quake Demo for 24 hours Before I got it.

Try bumping the core voltage up .1 increments and see if it will post. You may also need to play around with your ram timing. Also did you set your pci divider to 1/3 and agp divider to 2/3.

I mostly think it is a jumper or a Bios set up problem.

It will load windows at 850mhz but when I click on any thing it crashes.

The one thing I am not sure on is whether I should set the motherboard jumpers to 100mhz or leave them at 66mhz.

Should I change the multiplier?

Voltages I have tried 1.65, 1.70, 1.75. Those were sugested from the place I bought it at.

Ram timing is set at default. Running Mushkin pc 100 cas2 128megs

AGP set at 2/3

No jumper for PCI divider

Ok with some help from some friends we were able to solve this problem.

The main problem centered around the Sound Blaster live value card and the software Live wire 2 that comes with it. Live wire 2 has problems with copermine CPU's. So if you have a problem with coppermine check your sound card revision.

System.
Asus P2bf motherboard
Celeron 566 At 850mhz
128mgs Muskin pc 100 cas2 ram
Diamond TNT 2 running at 170/220
SB live value


This thing rocks at 850mhz

Thanks for all the help. koro, NormanSmiley, brianF

I heard that LiveWare 3.0 caused some problems with Coppermines, but hadn't heard that LW 2.0 caused any problems. I am awaiting my new Coppermine and have LW 3 installed, so I hope I don't have any problems.

What did you have to do? Uninstall LiveWare?

I went through add remove programs and let it do as much as it could. Then I went into Win explorer and deleted all the SBlive directories. Dumped it from Device manager. Ran Scan Reg I also pulled the card.

I am waiting on a disk with Livewire 3 on it The creative site was down most of the day and real slow.

Russ From Compucheap was the one who confirmed that livewire 2 was the problem. He also stated that Livewire 3 corrects this problem.

Hmm that's good to hear. I've downloaded LiveWare 3 4 times now and the last time I did it, I got the full thing (not the pieces) and saved it on one of my ZIP disks so I will never have to dload that thing again. It sure is slow though...
