p4gpl-x + dothan 740 problems
Hi all ,
I've bought myself a sparkling new asus p4gpl-x + ct479 conv + dothan 750m and 2gb of ocz 3200 memory,
I have been struggling now an entire day to get it to boot above 100 fsb (while the dothan is 133), but nothing helps ,
100 fsb seems to be rockstable, anything above 100 seems crap,
even booting at 200 (for pci lock) doesnt help,
clockgen + eist with lowering mp to 6 and upping fsb to 200 results in immediate freeze,
i have changed my pci freq in bios to 33.33, ddr volt to 2.9, ratio to 5/4 (but memory goes good in other pc), pci-e freq to 90, cpu voltage to 1.7 in bios (1.45effective) but nothing seems to help,
i have also flashed 3 other bioses (last one now is official latest one)
anybody has a clue to help me out here?

Those dothans are strange animals indeed .
- Did you change the jumper on the convertor?
- Try booting @ 201 FSB.

jumper is still at 100fsb, changing it to 133 doesnt help a thing,
201 fsb is not doable for the dothan at 1.45v,
i think it has to do with pci-locks, but i dont understand 133 isnt even doable,
also i have the another p4gpl also with a 730 and that one has the same problem also with other mem/psu/graphic card ...

Very strange problem.
Both his dothans are C0. His 740 is the same as mine, and I can run perfectly 133fsb. Jumpers at 100 / 133 or not at all, no problem.
