Question about AMD ATHLON XP,3200+,512k Cache (Barton),2.2Ghz,400Mhz (CUAMDXP3200B4)
In a nutshell, I can't get my AMD Athlon XP 3200+ to run at its optimum speed of 2.2Ghz as it should. I've flashed the Bios to accept the CPU, but I believe ther may be a jumper setting to adjust, if so, which one? Any adjustments in the system Bios only causes instability in the system either causing crashes, reboots at will, or lock ups. There is a solution, as others have had this same problem, but I'm ******** if anyone can come up with a clear solution.
I have attached all the info you should need with CPU-Z readouts, hope you can help.
Your FSB should be 400 MHz for the Athlon XP 3200+ processor.
CPU-Z shows your core speed at 1320 and your FSB at 241. If you multiply those numbers by 1.66, you get 2200 and 400. So all you have to do is get the board to the correct FSB speed of 400 and your core will be right.
There are two MSI boards with the number CPU-Z gives you. Board 1
The AMD page doesn't show the core voltage for the older processors, they do for the current ones. I looked at the MSI site and didn't see their manuals online for the motherboards either, sorry. I'm not positive it was changed using a jumper though, you saw nothing in the BIOS to set it? If the jumpers are on the board they may be labeled FSB and you can try the various positions.
Hope that helps, good luck.
