How do I set the multiplier ratio?

  Simsy 21:02 31 Jul 2003

Hi folks,

OK, after some problems that indicated the end of my mobo I've bought the bits for an upgrade....

Because budgeting was important,I've bought a "MSI KT2 Combo", which can accommodate my existing RAM, which works at 100mhz, and an Athlon 1.1Gig which has a fsb of 200mhz.

I've set a jumper on the mobo to an FSB setting of 100Mhz, but I can't find a way of setting the multiplier. The manual does refer to a core/bus ratio, but doesn't give a way of adjusting it...(and I have looked very hard... and there is nothing on the provided CD).

Does anyone know if I have to do anything or is it automatically sensed from the CPU?

There is a provided utility that enables overclocking, called "Fuzzy Logic", but this, obviously, can only be used when the system is up and running.

Any advice welcome, or I'll just have to connect up and see!

Thanks in anticipation,

why not go onto the mobo makers site and see what they have to say in frequently asked questions. The manual usually tells you what you must set and if it does not mention it the chances are it will do it automatically or you can set it from the bios.

I've just come back on after trying it out....

I wasn't looking to overclock.. just to get it right!

It seems goonerbill and Howard60 were right... it sussed it out automatically.

Well that's it for tonight.... more problems and questions tomorrow no doubt!

Thank you all
