Hi, I'm on a long and winding road of problems on my new PC! This time, I have FINALY got it sorted, just the proccessor is showing as 1300, the CPU itself says 2100 on it. I have installed a new mobo, on my previous it came up with 2100, on the new 1300. How to I get it back? Thanks guys!

Josh.

Go into your bios, increase ram speed from 100 to 166

FSB from 100 to 166)

OK I go into the BIOS and inevery section there is nothing to change the FSB. I can view it but it is "Greyed out" so I can't change it! Thanks guys!

Check in the M/B manual. Some Asus boards I use have switches on the board itself for the multipliers.

These are located near the RAM sockets.

On a few Asus motherboards the speed of the ram will determine what speed you can run the cpu. This would grey out the settings in the bios. Check the manual for the motherboard as €dstowe suggestes.

It may be the you just need to go to 133 Mhz Fsb and not 166.

A 2100+ runs at 13 X 133 = 1.733Ghz.

A 2700+ runs at 13 X with a 166 fsb. This would run it at 2.167 Ghz.

If you do get the chance to alter the fsb, be carefull. If you do set it at 166 Mhz, you could fry the chip.:-(

OK, to I change the swithches on the mobo?? The RAM is 2700, although on my MSI mobo the CPU runs at 2700.
