How do I know what my CPU is defaulted to run at?

  1. If my Bus Speed is 200 Mhz, but my FSB is 100 Mhz, then what does this mean? The current core speed is 1050 MHZ, but I think it may be underclocked, do to a power supply that isnt capable of providing enough power for the CPU's potential. Here are my stats running CPU-z

    Name: AMD Athlon XP
    Code Name: Palomino
    Package: Socket A
    Tech: 0.18 um Voltage 1.744 v

    etc. etc.

    Core Speed: 1050.0 Mhz
    Multiplier: x 10.5
    FSB: 100Mhz
    Bus Speed: 200 Mhz

    The Palomino AthlonXP CPUs should be running at 133Mhz FSB, so yes it does look like you are underclocked.

    What is your motherboard make/model?
    What is your ram configuration? I.e, how many sticks and what size/speed is each stick?
