Default 533>400FSB P4 wire trick

I want to let my gigabyte 845PE motherboard think my 2.4B 533FSB is actually a 100FSB proc, so I can use the 3:4 mem divider.

Does anyone knows how?

The 2.4B i've got here doesn't reach 160mhz FSB (400mem 4:5 divider) with the stock intel cooler. If i could trick it into a 400FSB proc, i could run it at 150FSB and 200mhz mem (3:4).

I've got a dozen PC3200 sticks, and i want to test them both on an intel and AMD platform.

No, i'm just talking about the default FSB of the proc. 400 instead of 533, multi stays the same.

I know it's possible. And there's a guide on xtreme...

if multi stays the same you can just drop the FSB to 100

No, underclocking in the bios doesn't make the 3:4 mem divider available. Only if the mobo recognizes the proc as a 100FSB one, i can select 3:4.

If you have a INTEL P4 that maxes out before your memory on the 4:5 ratio because you have a 533fsb cpu.

Want the 3:4 ratio on 845E/PE mobos, for your memory??
Heres the fix.
Niko from Xtremesystems turned me on to this helpful hack.

Connect the pins circled in yellow, and your 533fsb CPU, will now be deteceted as a 100fsb part. In your BIOS you should no see the option for 3:4 ratio. Seems to work on most motherboards.
Thx to glenn@B2OC
