Processor FSB

  Rogerfredo 09:43 30 May 04

I am thinking of upgrading my AMD 1800+ XP processor to a 2500+., now that I have a better mainboard.
However, when I visited the AMD site to check on the different versions available, I found that the only 1800+ processors listed had the FSB settings listed as 266. Mine runs at 133, so I thought I would reset the bios to use the faster rate.
Result: crash and PC would not reset or shutdown.
Fortunately, unplugging and the resetting the bios using the mainboard jumper restored the system to a working state.Was I fortunate not to damage the processor, and why would the listing be wrong?

The actual CPU frequency should be 133MHz. But since the transfer of data is bi-directional, they say the FSB is 133x2=266MHz.

You should keep the frequency at 133.

temp003 is correct the setting should be 133 any higher and it'll do exactly what you say crash continually
