Overclocking XP2000+ with Kingston 2.5 DDRRam
I have a AMD Athlon XP 2000+ and Kingston DDR rated at CAS Latency of 2.5, all on a MSI K7T266 Pro2 mobo.
I'd like to know what is the maximum bus speed I can attain for overclocking.
Setting to CAS Latency of 2 (instead of the Kingston's rated 2.5) for the RAM with 133 DDR system clock (i.e. 266 bus) is fine. I experimented by setting CAS Latency to the Kingston's default of 2.5 while upping to 140 and WinXP loaded up fine. I'm too scared to try 140 with CAS 2 for fear of data corruption. I also haven't tried going past 140 with CAS 2.5 .
I'd just like to know if anyone who has my combination (CPU, RAM and, to a lesser extent, mobo) has come to any stable o/c combination.

KIngston PC2700 cas2.5
Presently my PC (a7m266 duron 600) is running at 157Mhz with the same kind of memory, and very stable.
So it gives, 314MHz bus which translate in an 947 mhz Duron, locked at multiplier 6, because with this mobo Im unable to change the multiplier value.
I´ve tried running at 160MHz, with cas2 but started to have errors running some programs ex. 3dmark2001.
With cas2.5, the programs have run Ok, but strangle 3dmark2001 gave me slow fps than running at 157mhz cas2
