    with overclocking its not only the fsb and/or multiplier you have to change, you have to increase the voltage to support the higher frequency.

    i highly suggest you look up a bit about overclocking before you screw your pc up =]

    Hi , you have to set voltage to auto and that message will go. You need bios f3 and that will let you adjust mem ratio to 2.66 so your mem isn't o/c too much. So far I can get e1200 to 2.8 -350fsb- but no higher. Any help anyone.
