Could you please confirm what cpu clock speed I need to use for an AMD 2400xp processor when stting up the bios on an MSI KT4AV mobo. cheers

It runs at 2GHz, cearve.

Sorry MAJ I may have misled you. The mobo asks for a clock speed to be set from 100mhz to 280mhz. Am i looking at 133 or 266 or what?

As MAJ says it should be 2.0gig.

That would be a fsb of 133Mhz and the multiplier set at 15. so 15 X 133 = 1.995 Ghz.

i think you have a 266mhz cpu it will need to be set to 133,if it was a 2500+ or above it will be 333mhz so this is set at 166.i set up my kt4al this week,i got the info from msi web site

  MAJ 22:31 21 Nov 2003

bsod has it correct.

cheers guys. thats the info I need. Thnx

You were spot on. The clock speed of the xp2400 is 2.0gig.

Following on from my questions yesterday. I have now installed the XP2400 cpu on the MSI KT4AV-L mobo and loaded the mobo software. The bios default on the board for the cpu fsb is 100mhz, ( range 100 to 280 ). The system seems to be recognising the cpu as XP2700. Is this OK?

that the board FSB jumper setting is set to Auto. If it is just keep an eye on the temperature of the CPU (90c)

  cearve 12:22 23 Nov 2003

The temperature seems to be quite cool 47-49c. Is the bios ok at 100mhz. It is the defalt setting, but it can be changed in the bios if required. I'm not sure if I would need to change it to a higher rating for this Processor. Not sure what all this means. If it is running at 2700 I guess it must be ok. I did try it at 133mhz but it wouldn't boot up.
