Thread: Gigabyte 7VAX and AMD 2000+ clock ratio issues

    I was hoping you knowledgeable people would be able to help a clueless **** like me:) .

    I've just got a Giga 7VAX motherboard and an AMD 2000+ chip. I'm confused over which clock ratio/multiplier I should use. The chip runs at 133Mhz FSB (I think) and the board supports two chip FSBs, one running at 100MHz and the others at 266/333MHz. There is a switch on the board to change between these two settings.
    Now, do I leave it at 100MHz and increase the multiplier (again, by a set of 6 switches on mobo) by 16.5 or 17ish? Or do I change (in the BIOS) the CPU Host Frequency to 132MHz and multiply by 12.5ish?

    All help would be greatly appreciated,

    I have this board, sucks! I had to change the switch on the board, leave the BIOS at default, it should update. I've gone thru two of these boards in about two months, both were defective. Careful with this board!! :snip: :2cents:

    Ya multiplier should be at 12.5 and ya FSB at 133MHz (266DDR/333DDR setting).
