Upgrading cpu

  Installer. 20:44 10 Mar 2003

I'm upgrading from a 1Ghz Athlon (Thunderbird) to a Athlon Xp2400+ 2Ghz.

I know that I shall have to change the fsb, but my mobo has a Vcore adjustment which is set to default at the moment.

Does this or anything else need changing?

You may need a BIOS upgrade, check the mobo manufacturer's website to ensure that XP2400+ is supported.

I have rently upgraded my CPU from 1000Ghz to a Athlon Thunderbird 1.33 Ghz 266 Side bus.

I changed the dip switches on the M/B to the configuration from the manual.
The machine worked 1st time but I just get the feeling that the machine is not quiet as speedy as with the 1000Ghz Chip in place.
Have I missed something in the set up or are there BIOS changes to be made as well?

The M/B is a Soltek 75 KAV
Power supply is rated to Athlon requirements.

Anyone help?

Leave everything to autodetect first.
If it doesnt show as 2GHz then change fsb to 133 as you said.
You shouldnt have to alter anything else.
