Thread: My Cpu Speed

  1. #1
    I have a AMD Athlon XP 2000+ and a FIC AN17 motherboard.

    When it was my brothers, it read the cpu speed was 1.57. Before I OC'ed it on my system it said it was an unknown cpu w/ speed of 1.63.

    He says the speed is supposed to be 1.7-something.

    What could cause the mis-readings and is there anyway to fix it?

    It should be 1.67Ghz. Your readings look fine to me. Sept for the unknown thing...but its running at the right speed.

    the fsb or multiplier must have been set wrong. its suppposed to be a fsb of 266 and a multiplier of 12.5. take a look here

    hmm, says knowledge server isnt running. oh well.

    1.925 is a bit over the 2200+ (1.8ghz), not sure if its 2400+. but shouldnt it say during your post what the processor equivlent is? is did on my aunts computer after I oced it...

    Knowledge server is not running please try later.
    It says "Unknown Processor 1.925" or something like that

    Looks like you got that edit just before me

    EDIT: it was also saying unknown processor type before i oc'ed it. I did some cross-multiplication and it came out 2305

    hmm, how old is your motherboard? it may not support the higher athlon xp processors (by higher i mean any xp processor)

    When I OC'd my chip the system no longer reported what version it was.
    It just says "AMD Athlon XP 2.31MHz".

    A 2500+ OCed to 2.2GHz reports as a 3200+
    A 2600+ OCed to 2.3GHz reports as a ... oops, there isn't one, I assume that's why you get that report.

    @SingaBoiy: see if there's a bios update, you sometimes need that to get correct chip reporting even though it operates correctly.
