    Looks like your fsb is set to 100mhz when it should be at 133. There's probably a jumper on your mobo to set this, check your manual.
    As for the sound, could you try another cd-rom? That could narrow the problem. Reply back on your other thread

    Your fsb is supposed to be at 133mhz so there will be no problems leaving it there. Increasing the fsb over the rated 133mhz of your processer will increase performance at the cost of greater heat and instability. A small amount of o/c of your fsb say about +10mhz shouldn't be too much of a problem for the stock heatsink and fan bundled with your processer but as you get higher, you'll need more and more cooling throughout your system. Have a look at http://www.overclockers.com/articles740/ if your interested. and make sure that you slowly overclock in very small increments until you're aware of your cpu's limits. Have fun but remember that overclocking will void your warrenty and can melt your cpu/ram/chipset/everything if not done correctly!
