CPU FSB settings?

Postby scottla » Thu Nov 23, 2006 10:53 am

Happy thanksgiving all!

I put together a quick little machine yesterday out of spare parts using an Asus A8N-VM CSM. The specs say 1000Mhtz FSB, but when I go into BIOS, it reads 200. I don't know that I'm looking at the right thing.

Basically, I go into BIOS>Advanced>JumperFree Configuration>AI Overclock. When I set this to manual, the only variable there is "CPU FSB Frequency". That reads 200. Does this seem slow? What can I set this to, do you think, and still have a stable system?

Other components:

AMD 64 4000+
1G (2x512) SuperTalent Performance RAM DDR400/PC3200

In your BIOS there is an HT setting. It ranges from 1x - 5x. The 1000FSB that the specs mention is your CPU FSB, 200Mhtz x HT 5.

Thanks for reminding me of the multiplier! That makes sense now. The obvious is always the hardest to see.
