I have recently installed a new M/B and AMD Athlon Chip. Now I'm not sure what the BIOS settings should be.

System properties is reporting the chip is running at 1.24Ghz But the chip is a 2600XP. Is this normal?

Here are my system specs..

M/B Asus A7N8X Deluxe ver 2.0 Bios Rev1005
Amd Athlon 2600XP
512MB PC2700 DDR-333 Ram
120GB 7200RPM HDD
Geforce FX 5200 128MB Graphics

If anyone has the same setup and knows the best Bios setup, please let me know.

I'm thinking I have the FSB or multipliers set wrong!.

Go to the motherboard manufacturers site and download the manual for your board. I think that will tell you what you need to know.

speed for your processor is 166 and the multiplier is 12.5

These settings should result in the processor running at 2.08Ghz
