Hello 100MHz FSB?

  1. Hello I,ve got a P4 2.524 GHz HP with 512 meg ram and a GeForce MX420 (Would ReaLLY like a 7800) But to the point DxDiag says that I've got a 100 FSB and was wondering if maybe my bios is set wrong or if I just got a bum deal if anyone knows what i should set the bios to so to tweek it up that would be nice. I think My FSB should be 533Mhz

    THANKS

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    If your cpu runs at an fsb of 533mhz, then you need to set your fsb in bios to 133mhz(533mhz effective).

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    ok bios says its running @ 533MHz so maybe it's just the program reporting it wrong. any good programs for ReaLLy checking out system info that would see the actual values?

    BIOs sees it as a 533FSB Chip but has no setting for any adjustments is self detecting

    CPUZ from www.cpuid.com gives a good acount of that stuff. It's free.

    You may also try Everest, or Aida32.

    cheers

    ok have a 533MHz Bus speed rating but the FSB is running @138.8MHz. I assume looking further in it. that is caused by my PC2100 memory chip which as soon as I can afford to replace will be upgraded to somthing a little more faster. Sound right to U?

    The system runs at the speed of your slowest componenet.

    So getting the fastest RAM you can, will enable the speeds your board can run at.

    ouch, well I never really used Everest anyway, lol.

    Aida32 may be better. But alas! There's more!

    Apparently the creator of Aida32 has been appointed the project leader of the Everest software!

    However, you can still find aida32 for download all over. And I'm sure you can still find the free Everest. If so, I suggest putting them in your permenent tools, because I don't think we'll be getting any new versions.
