I have a Gigabyte K7 Triton(GA-7N400 Pro2) motherboard. 1gb RAM. But my CPU which is a AMD Athlon XP2600 is only being recognised as only Athlon XP1250. If I wanted 1250 Id have bought it. Ive upgraded from a Duron 1100 so Im not getting much better. Can anyone help?
Changed FSB in BIOS to 200mghz. CPU still being recognised as Athlon XP1250. How do I tell which Athlon XP version is is? ie Athlon Barton or Athlon Thorourbred with their subsequent Multiplier? How does this make a diference and how can I change it? I bought the Motherboard together with the CPU specifically together. Any thooughts? :-)
i suspect this is the thoroughbred chip, as i experienced similar probs with mine (diff board though) fsb should be set to 166 mhz = 332 fsb (the figure is doubled but for some reason not exactly, maybe someone can explain?) and the chip should report as 2083 mhz speed. also make sure the fsb is managed manually and not set to automatic. Also freshdiagnose will tell you what chip you have click here also click here
Their is something strange as it shows the barton with a 11.5 multiplier and the thoroughbred as a 16 multiplier so on a 100mhz fsb the one would show as 1150 and the other would show as 1600, are you sure it is a XP2600.?
