Question about Acer Veriton 5600G PC Desktop

Acer Veriton 5600G Front Side Bus settings/jumpers

Hi, how does one set and check the FSB speed? I can't find any motherboard diagram indicating jumpers nor settings nor BIOS setup (in Acer manuals) for this.

I understand P4 can go to 800Mhz and Celeron to 400MHz.
CPU-Z version 1.34.1. says I have the following:
CPU(s) Number of CPUs 1 Name Intel Celeron Code Name Northwood Specification Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.60GHz Family / Model / Stepping F 2 9 Extended Family / Model 0 0 Brand ID 10 Package mPGA-478 Core Stepping D1 Technology 0.13 um Supported Instructions Sets MMX, SSE, SSE2 CPU Clock Speed 2593.6 MHz Clock multiplier x 26.0 Front Side Bus Frequency 99.8 MHz Bus Speed 399.0 MHz L1 Data Cache 8 KBytes, 4-way set associative, 64 Bytes line size L1 Trace Cache 12 Kuops, 8-way set associative L2 Cache 128 KBytes, 2-way set associative, 64 Bytes line size L2 Speed 2593.6 MHz (Full) L2 Location On Chip L2 Data Prefetch Logic yes L2 Bus Width 256 bits Mainboard and chipset Motherboard manufacturer Acer Motherboard model J88M, (null) BIOS vendor Phoenix Technologies, LTD BIOS revision 6.00 PG BIOS release date 04/06/2004 Chipset Intel i865P/PE/G/i848P rev.

Maybe it's already running at 400Mhz but why is
Front Side Bus Frequency 99.8 MHz
Any help appreciated!

Regards, Gerry.

    Thanks - is a definite must read!

    A short answer would be fine but glad for that info. - I have a reasonable knowledge but was looking for some reassurance I guess. I'm assuming now it's running at 400 (100x4) but in the past I was used to m/board jumpers - this seems newer (no such jumpers - only BIOS).

    cheers kleeper, Gerry.

Things to consider when replacing a 5600G case

I assume this is an ATX motherboard. Most cases should work. I think most cases come with a power supply but if not make sure yours will fit. I like cases with at least three drive bays which give room for expansion. The biggest problem I see with switching cases is connecting the wires for power button, hard drive LED, re-set button etc. to the motherboard. Maybe you will get a schematic with the case. Some boards are not marked very clearly in this area. You will need a magnifying glass to read this information on the MOBO. Trace the different colored wires back to the case to see what they do.
