Thread: CPU at wrong mhz on ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe

    Ok, as mentioned in the topic, the mother board in question is the nForce 2 based Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe. The CPU I have in there is an AMD ATHLON XP 3000 (Barton 333 mhz).

    When windows boots up and I diagnose the CPU with Asus program it tells me that the CPU, while a 3000, is only running at 2.16 ghz. I know this is something to do with the frequency settings in BIOS, but Ive tried fooling around and nothing seems to work (I get a lot of freezes, but little else). Does anyone know this M/B and what settings I need to put into BIOS to get my CPU running at the speed it should?

    Even directions to a website where I could obtain this information would be appraciated. Asus support has been of very little help. Thanks.

    Ummm... 2166MHz (2.16 GHz) is the correct speed for a 3000+ processor.

    Ok, thank you. A friend actually said something to the effect that the ghz on an AMD chip is not a reflection of the actuall speed it operates as equivalent to a pentium chip. This is my first AMD processor so Im still a newbie at it. Thanks for you help anyway. I will stop trying to fry it in the bios now ;)

    Actually, is it likely that I have damaged my CPU or motherboard with my niave screwing around?. If so, how will I know (It seems to be working ok at the moment)

    Though this guide is a bit dated, the principles are still applicable. Check it out and you'll have a little more insight as to what you can do to "play".

    And if you're system still works fine, then it is highly unlikely you damaged your processor. :)

    Well it has started refering to itself as "SkyNet", should I be worried? ;)

    On a more serious note, thanks for the link.

    :)
