FSB settings

  xania 12:19 14 Jul 2005

I have just installed a new motherboard & CPU for my wife - not for the first time, but this was a pretty major step forward for her. All went according to plan except that, when I tested the machine, my new Sempron 2400+ was only showing up as 1000 Mhz. Having checked all the documentation (both mobo & CPU before starting) and finding no reference to the FSB rating on either, I had assumed (wrongly) that the default (200 MHz) would work. But it now seems that my CPU runs at 333 MHz, and according to the technical advice at the vendor, I should have know this before I started. OK, may I should and maybe not, but I am a semi-pro in IT and yet I didn't. So, the bottom line is - is this something I should know, and if so where can I get the information to keep for future use?

If you brought a retail chip then it should say the FSB settings in the documentation with the chip or on the box, at least I should think so.

Theres always google and looking on the manufacturers website as well, I guess it is good practice to check that you know all the neceesary information before you start.
