    I recently built a machine with an xp2600/333 and an asus a7v8x-x and it seems to me that at first the cpu speed was 2ghz(1992mhz), but when it was all done and ready for the customer, the cpu speed was 1910mhz. This seems very odd, I thought the multiplier was supposed to be 12. The bios says it's 11.5 ? No changes to the fsb or multiplier were done as this customer is a newb and does not even understand how to run the machine, never mind ocing.
    Any idea besides enabling the adjustments in the bios and turning it to 12 ?
    What would make this happen?

    Yet another thoughtless thread title.

    Anyway, just go into the BIOS and up itto 12, as thats a KT400 and you can do that without a problem

    Actually it should be set at 12.5x166MHz (2083MHz).

    I know that, I was just wondering why or how it would change on it's own. That board has wonderful adjustments when enabled. I guess that was a dumb title, the above title would have been more suited. Everybody had their off days.

    Ok, I figured it out. The last 5 that I built with that mobo and xp2600 were using a tbred, the speed just above 1900 for this one is right. This one is a barton.
    As a result of AMD’s rejigging its product lines, the company will add another processor with 512KB of L2 cache in its family. This will be the already mentioned Athlon XP 2600+ chip now boasting with 333MHz EV-6 FSB and 512KB of L2 cache. It will also work at lower clock-speed compared to other chips with the same model number: 1917MHz. As a result, you will be able to find three totally different microprocessors on the market branded as Athlon XP 2600+:
    This quote is from xbit labs and is dated may 31, 03. So all is right after all.

    It bein' a Barton would make a big difference though I've yet to come across one of them here yet.

    I confirmed it. Since the cpu and heatsink came on the mobo as a bundle, and it was not for a power user, I left it together for warranty reasons. So I called the supplier and they confirmed it was a barton. They must have just gotten them in, the last bunch were tbreds.
