  1. Hello,
    I have a Athlon XP barton core 2500+ processor sitting on an Asus A7V600-X with (2) 256MB sticks of Corsair Value Select.

    In BIOS, the CPU Speed is 1467 MHz , bus speed is 133/33, and multiplier is 11.0x. I can't remember exactly what the ram is... (either PC2700 or PC3200) but do I need to change these settings or is the correct speed for a XP2500+?

    I'm not interested in OC'ing or anything, just want to be running at the right speed. :)

    That is definately not the correct speed for your processor, I run an xp2000+ and its normal clock speed is 1666 Mhz. In your bios there is a setting for front side bus (fsb) speed, u need to set that correctly for your particular processor.

    Thanks for the reply.

    BIOS gives me the options of 1100, 1467, 1833 and 2200mhz for processor speeds. And for bus speeds it gives me a range from 100/33 to 250/43. It also allows me to set the multiplier from 5.0x to 22.5x.

    Anyone know off hand what I should be running this at?

    Your fsb should be set to 166mhz giving you a cpu speed of 1833mhz.

    you wont be able to change the multiplier because the Amd athlon 2500 xp is super locked.

    Look HERE for Amd processor specs.

    Regards Howard :) :)

    My XP 2500+ runs normal at 200MHZ FSB. It's not overclocked. If I go above 200mhz, I have stability problems with my memory.
    I run it on an MSI K7N2 Delta 2 platinum MB
