Athlon XP2400+ and ECS Motherboard

  crumbdias 21:00 29 Aug 2003

I have a K7S5A v3.1 motherboard which I have updated the BIOS on (29/10/02 i think) to accomidate the Athlon processor (2000 mhz). The problem is when playing games like FIFA 2003 it freezes not long into playing. If I change the bios and ask it to set best performance the processor is shown as a XP1800+ (1499 mhz) and my games run fine. Can anyone help???????????

What is the actual model of your processor? Is it an XP1800+?

I noticed an earlier flash stated it had upgraded to allow Xp2400+ and Xp2600+. Should I have taken this option instead of the latest update?????
