Athlon XP 2500+ overheating and incorrect Bios....

  SimonC 16:57 11 Mar 04

Hi there this is kind of an update from last night (for those of u that read my post). My mate got his processor type wrong, it is actually an Athlon XP 2500+ (not an 1800) so the question 4 2 nite is what r the correct bios settings 4 this chip?, ie fsb multiplier etc and as to his overheating problem (64 Deg C) he is still undecided which path 2 take.

Thanx a lot guys 'n' gals

Athlon XP 2500MHz Barton

Operating frequency 1833MHz

Multiplier 11x

Voltage 1.65v

Max operating temp 85 deg C

FSB frequency 333MHz

there is no option for 333MHz in his bios so wot would be the correct settings 4 this chip, we know the spec 4 the chip but the bios is giving incorrect info so wot bios settings correspond with this chip please?.

just to add to 961's posting, the fsb may be a default 166, although it runs at 333, dependent on mobo and bios.

the motherboard is an MSI KT6 DELTA with an FSB of 400MHz but it seems that this processor needs a specific fsb, multiplier and operating frequency manually putting in coz the bios seems to report it wrong by default. (It shows it as an 1100??!!.

the settings should be as follows, (the 400 fsb on your mobo is for the ram). FSB=166 Multiplier=11 Core voltage=1.65 I/O voltage=3.3

hopefully that info will see him right thanx a lot, hopefully the bios will report right once he manually puts in this info, cheers 2 u, I am deeply grateful!.
