the clockrate is 266MHz, the data rate is double that so 533MHz. if you put in a decent 533FSB CPU instead of the 2.4GHz/400MHz FSB one that is in there now, the system will run at full speed.

The motherboard used is a D845GRG from Intel with a customized bios,

but even the retail bios from Intel does not have the setting for DDR800 which is what you want (400MHz clock rate = 800MHz data rate). DDR =Double Data Rate
