Duron 1600 fsb setting

  bananaslik 09:57 23 Nov 2003

I;m just putting a new cpu in my computer,a duron 1600.I just want to know the setting,is it 100 or 133(i think it;s 100 but need to check with the experts)
I know it's small but the m/board restricts me going bigger.

Hi bananaslick. I just looked at this processor at Ebuyer, and they say that the fsb for this processor is 266M click here

I also found this useful information on one of their customer reviews:

"If you look at it's Mfr part code,
decoded from Right to left.........

FSB: C = 266

L2 Cache: 1 = 64 Kb

Die Temp: V = 85c

Operating Voltage: L = 1.5v

Package Type: D = OPGA

Frequency: 1600--------

Generation: HD = High-Performance Desktop Processor.

Family: D = Duron

You say that the processor spec is small, unless you want to be the fastest game player on the block, this processor will exceed anything that most users will ever need. I recently fitted one, and the performance was very impressive.

Hi bananaslik. It may work, or you may need a BIOS update. click here

The MSI site is more optimistic about the processor it supports, so it's worth a try click here

There does appear to be two duron 1.6 gig cpu's. I always thought that they, the duron 1.6,had a fsb of 133 and a multiplier of 12. But from this thread they may be some 100Mhz cpu's out there?

I think the manufacturers code should make it clear which one you have, and if in doubt, set the motherboard for 100, and if it is wrong, the processor will be reported as running at about 1.2G.

If you check the data on your cpu you can find ou the fsb.
Have a look here and note the new 133 is the Applebred series
