new MOBO

  wobbler 12:17 10 Sep 04

Bought an elite 741GX-M motherboard, but now I am confused. The book with it says it has an FSB of 166/133 yet the web site for Elite says it has a FSB of 266/333. Which is correct?

Probably the website as any errors there can be more easily corrected.

Probably just inconsistency in the use of "FSB", but the same things.

The actual clock frequency is 133 or 166MHz (in BIOS settings e.g.), but (assuming it's a motherboard for AMD Athlon XPs), since data transfer takes place both ways at the same time, the FSB is usually described as 266/333MHz.

Just remember in BIOS, you need to set it to 133 or 166 as the case may be.
