System (FSB) speed

I have an Intel P4 3.4 GHz processor installed. Is it possible to increase the system bus speed from 533MHz to 800MHz or 1066MHz? I haven't found the ability to adjust it in the BIOS settings. Any ideas?

    I've looked through the BIOS settings and so far I'm not seeing how I can adjust the clock speed of the processor, but I think I'm ok with a 3.4 GHz processor and an 800 MHz FSB.

The bus speed is set by the motherboard. Only the CPU clock speed can be adjusted in BIOS.

SOURCE: I have Intel Orginal 845GVSR MotherBoard with 2.4

Here's a direct link to this motherboard's technical product specification document:
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/15210/eng/D845GVSR_TechProdSpec.pdf

Scrolling down to page 21 of this PDF docuemnt, under section "1.7 System Memory", all details related to memory specs are listed.

Based on this, the answer to your question is: Yes. You can increase your RAM to 1 GB with 400 FSB speed.

Yes, you can put any Pentium 4 or Celeronsocket 478 processor in there, including those with an 800MHz FSB onthe processor. Don't waste your time with only a faster FSB unless youjust happen to have one laying around, the performance won't improvethat much. This one is $50 from Newegg.

Upgrading the components is not overclocking. Overclocking is when youforce the components to run faster than they are rated for. Yourmotherboard is set up to allow this, through the BIOS. Severaloverclocking features areintegrated into the BIOS, including the ability to adjust the FSBfrequency, and the Vcore, DDR, and AGP voltages.

If you choose to overclock, be prepared to make frequent changes toachieve best performance vs. stability. I would suggest upgrading yourcooling to the best you can afford as well. Your PC may lock up orrefuse to boot for no apparent reason if you overclock. Be preparedfor that and know what to do about it before you start youroverclocking career.

SOURCE: Processor FSB

no, the proc will lose speed. the FSB is a part of the equation that determines the processors speed. A lower FSB speed will mean reduced performance.

Yes you can, the speed will be increased approximately more than 50%. There's also advantage if you can install two 512mb, which you'll see it as "dual channel", sometimes this is better as per the system configuration. Good luck. Thank you for using FixYa.

make sure that you don't need to overclock your setting (in BIOS ) so as to get full ddr3 frequency.That it, you need to overclock your CPU speed and if you want to work at great speed, try you upgrade you processor.
try a core 2 duo or a quad-core and make sure that it matches with your FSB, with maximum L catch ( 12 mb)

Celeron d 2.66 ghz saupot


'Saupot'?

Apologizes that English is the only language I am fluent in.
I'm assuming the above word is 'Support'.

You wish to know if the MSI 945GZN3-L motherboard, will support one of the Intel Celeron D processors, that are rated at a maximum frequency rate, ('speed') of 2.667MHz?
(2.66GHz rounded off)

1) http://www.msi.com/product/mb/945GZM3.html

2) Specifications:

"Supports Socket 775 for Intel P(entium)4 5xx, or 6xx models.
Intel Pentium D 8xx and 9xx models
Intel Celeron D processors "

The MSI 945GZM3-L motherboard will support Intel Celeron D processors, that have either a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or an 800MHz FSB.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_celeron_microprocessors#Celeron_.28single-core.29_3

Supports;
Intel Celeron D model 330
Intel Celeron D 330J
,and;
Intel Celeron D 331

They all have a 533MHz FSB. (Front Side Bus)

Can i put dual core processors in my intel se7505vb2 motherboard?


http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/se7505vb2/sb/cs-007399.htm

Page 16 of the Technical Product Specification guide;

3.1.1 Processor Support
"The Intel Server Board SE7505VB2 supports one or two processors in the 604-pin FCPGA package."

-> Socket 604,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_604

-> Intel XEON processors ONLY

"When two processors are installed, all Processors MUST be of identical revision, core voltage, and bus/core speed."

-> Means you really should use two IDENTICAL processors.

"When only one Processor is installed, it should be in the socket labeled CPU1, and the other socket must be empty."

-> Self-explanatory.
That's the processor socket furthest away from the black AGP graphics expansion slot, and closest to the outside edge of the motherboard.
(Page 104, and 105)

ONLY supports Intel Xeon processors with a 400MHz, or 533MHz FSB.

Dual-Core Xeon's start at 667MHz, and wouldn't work anyway; due to different Core architecture, and Instruction Sets.

667MHz, 800MHz, 1066MHz, and 1333MHz, for dual core Xeon's,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Xeon_microprocessors#Xeon_.28UP.2FDP.29.2C_Dual_Core_2

(Scroll down just a touch, to get the Wikipedia 'banner' out of the way, or click on it's X)

Scroll down the page, look at the charts. Starts with 800MHz FSB for Dual Core, then goes 667MHz, 800MHz, 1066MHz, and 1333MHz, Front Side Bus.

Use Dual Core processors?

No.

Two Single-Core processors.

DELL PRECISION 390


Intel 975X motherboard chipset, and an LGA 775 processor socket.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets


Scroll down to 975X in the left column.

Looking across the chart for the 975X note the processor support.
Intel Pentium D
Intel Pentium Dual Core
Intel Core2 Duo
Intel Quad Core

Listed in order of performance.

Also note that 45nm and 65nm architecture, Intel processors are supported.
(nm = NanoMeter. 1 Billionth of a Meter)

Also look at the Front Side Bus support. (FSB)
Either 533MegaHertz, or 667MHz, or 800MHz or 1066MHz.

Now look at the ram memory frequency rate ('Speed') supported.
533MHz, or 667MHz, or 800MHz.
Depends on what Processor is used.
Rule of thumb is; ram memory typically operates at half of the FSB of the Processor.

Remember that when selecting ram memory for your motherboard.

Or if you have existing ram memory you wish to use, choose your processor using the above rule of thumb.

http://www.dell.com/us/en/bpi/desktops/precn_390/pd.aspx?refid=precn_390&s=bpi


Click on the Tech Specs tab
(Overview / Product Views / Tech Specs )

Supported by the Intel 975X motherboard chipset specs, on Wikipedia link above.

I have use intel d102ggc2 motherboard and it support 2gb ddr2 667mhz why?


The motherboard supports an Intel processor, with Up To, an 800MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (800MHz FSB)

Ram memory typically operates at half of the Processor's,
FSB frequency rate. ('Speed')

If you have a Processor with an 800MHz FSB, typically you would want ram memory that operates at 400MHz.

Ram memory at 533MHz is pushing it. Still operates at 533MegaHertz, though.

[Mega = Approximately 1 Million

Hertz stands for Cycles per Second. Named after a man with the last name of Hertz.

Frequency rate is proper speak.
'Speed' is slang brought out by Intel advertising, so everyone could understand better.
'Speed' = Frequency Rate.

DDR2 Sdram at 667MHz?
Means it can operate, UP TO ,a frequency rate of 667 Million Cycles per Second ]

I'll bet your DDR2 Sdram at 667MHz, is clocked down.
Bet it isn't running at 667MHz. More like 533MHz.

Have you used CPU-Z to find out? (Free)

Need help downloading, installing, or using CPU-Z, post in a Comment.
Also will explain what you are looking at.

no :(, you need processor with a bus speed of 533 or lower, where do you live? you can buy a very much better, newer processor and motherboard for less than $120 now :)

How do i change the memory bus speed on my dell optiplex 170l? The CPU is an Intel Celeron 2.4GHz. The mother board processor speed is 400MHz and the Bios indicates a memory bus speed of 266MHz and does...


You checked in the right place as far as looking in the BIOS, however, memory and CPU sockets do not necessarily have the same buss speed. My FSB runs at 1066Mhz and my RAM at 800Mhz, it all depends on what type of RAM you buy as to the bus speed. You can up the bus speed on your RAM if you wish to reduce bottle-necking, but I've only done that a few times. In order to adjust anything, you must set the settings to manual. Be careful when you change this stuff around though, voltages must also be adjusted accordingly.

I have an Ms-7037 motherboard. I want to change


You cannot change the FSB to 800 , the board is made to take certain FSB's and processors are made with certain fsb speeds (Mainly 533mhz , 800mhz , 1066mhz etc)

These speeds cannot be changed . You have to buy a new processor and a new board to get the faster speed FSB !
