What bios settings for Athlon XP 1900+

  anchor 09:04 11 Oct 2003

I had originally planned to upgrade my processor to an Athlon XP 2100+. My motherboard is an Asus A7M266 but I have now found that it will only support a Palomino core, (with a bios upgrade).

Unfortunately, it appears that those 2100+ processors currently available have a Thoroughbred core. Thus I will have an Athlon XP 1900+, which is a Palomino.

What settings should I use in my Award bios for this processor.

Those available are:

"operating frequency setting"

"CPU clock multiplier"

"Set system operation frequency"

"system frequency"

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the replies; sorry for the delay in responding but I was away for the weekend.

I have the manual for my motherboard, (which is jumper free), which was supplied by Evesham.

My present processor is an Athlon 1.333Mhz.

I can see on the bios listing on my initial posting where I should enter "multiplier", (i.e. "CPU clock multiplier" ), but where should I enter "133FSB".

You cannot alter the multiplier of the chip unless you have sorted the bridges out, it is fixed at 12.

The Front side bus frequency is normaly next to the multiplier.

As there is nothing further on this matter, I will click resolved.
