Hey guys, i'm currently running a system with a p4p800 se m/b and a p4 2.4Ghz proc. with 1.5gb of ddr 400 ram 2 X 512mb and 2 X 256mb. The problem i'm having is that, my bios sets my fsb at 133 and my ram speed to 266mhz, what i'd like to know is if there is a custom bios or something that can help me unlock the multiplier. I have overclocked my processor to 3.2Ghz and it's running cooler with my cpu cooler but that only pushes my ram to 333mhz. Can you help me?

P4s are multi locked. There are hardware hacks to unlock however I never recommend doing so.

If it is just that your ram speed increases and you do not want it to, just use a lower divider or ram speed. When you raise the fsb, it is back to where it should be.

Ah alright, well thanks anyway. No, it's more I don't really need the processor running that fast, but i want the ram running faster. I'm gonna leave it as is, I mean so far it's been stable, can't put down a hyper48 ever after this :)
But I saw on another forum that asus do have plans to release new bios firmware with a cpu unlock function for certain processors. So here's hoping
