Unless the mobo is compliant with a front side bus speed of 333mhz, the cpu you have will only run at 266mhz max, in other words the cpu will down-clock to the 266mhz bus clock and therfore run more slowly. check with the mbo handbook, or on CMOS tosee if yoy can change the fsb setting. ask for more help if needed.Can you give me the full code of the mobo ?

Upgrade


Hello,

Thank you for the information. Please find the CPUs supported by the Motherboard of your computer below.

Duron: 1.6 - 1.8 GHz at FSB 266 MHz
Athlon XP:
Palomi** Core: 1500+ - 2100+ at FSB 266 MHz
Thoroughbred Core: 1700+ - 2700+ at FSB 266/333 MHz
Barton Core: 2500+ - 3200+ at FSB 333 MHz
2500+ - 3200+ at FSB 400 MHz

Sempron: 3000 + and up
I see that the present processor is requires ** upgrade as it is one of the best match availble for this motherboard. However, you can upgrade the Memory to 2 GB using two 1GB
DDR 266/333/400 modules to improve the system perform performance. Also, you can consider for a video card upgrade. Your computer supports both AGP and PCI video cards.

Also, you can download the maunal for the motherboard of your computer from the link below for your referance.

CPU Upgrade


Athlon XP 3000+ is 400mhz FSB according to the link(http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_1274_3734^11672,00.html), means that in order to display the actual speed of your Athlon XP 3000+ you have to set your board 166mhz to 200mhz jumper setting or in CMOS utility overclocking option. and also just to inform you that your motherboard is in Overclocked condition when set, because it only supports processors up to 333mhz FSB (http://www.digital-daily.com/motherboard/soltek-sl75frv/)
