my new AMD 2800+ is shown as a 2200+, any ideas why?
It's on a Gigabyte GA7N400E-L with the clk Switch set to auto.
Cheers

sounds like you need to go into your bios and set the FSB to 166mhz (166*2 = 332) near enough to the 333mhz fsb of the processor (dont forget you would need PC2700 ram), dont know your particular board but most motherboards have a setting for CPU fsb.

have a look round but dont go changing things you shouldnt. tread lightly.

good luck

You're the man, Paperman.
One click of the mouse in the bios and it's right where it should be. Many thanks
