Imperial gl ve 20020930 SPECS

TriGem (Company) Imperial GLVE (Model)

Hmmm, I'm at a stalemate.

Looking at the specs for the motherboard chipset;
The Northbridge and Southbridge chip,

Intel 845GV

Supports CPU's with a 400MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or a
533MHz FSB.

Naturally I can't get a clear picture of those jumpers, but they look to be 3-pin.

If we are to assume that the jumper pins set the CPU FSB support, from 400MHz to 533MHz, then the jumper cap is moved from either

Pins 1 and 2, to Pins 2 and 3; on J2 jumper;
Or Pins 2 and 3, to Pins 1 and 2.

I know !O_O!
Sort of a guessing game, as to where the jumper cap goes to what pins, for 400MHz FSB support, or 533MHz FSB support.

Do you have any idea of what the FSB is for the old CPU (Processor), that was in the motherboard? (Or is)

Let's say 400MHz.
You now know if the CPU you are wanting to use, needs 533MHz Front Side Bus support, you need to move the jumper cap to the opposite pins.

What happens if it's wrong? Nothing. processor just won't work.
Change the jumper cap back.

(NOT plugged into power when you do. Also FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions)

Yes. I'm 'out there on a limb'
I am assuming after looking at the TriGem support page, for the Imperial GLVE motherboard, that the J2 jumper is used to change the FSB support for the Processor.

It MAY be that J2 has Nothing to do with CPU Support.
It may be that there is no jumper for changing CPU FSB support.

(Cleared that right up, huh? Geez!)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have a Syntax K7 SV400 motherboard. The board will post but will not install the os. The bios recognizes the cd drive and the hard drive. When I try to install Windows 2000 Pro the cd drive spins and I...

Nothing, first try the disk in a working pc & see if it auto-runs in windows,if it does then try a different ribbon cable on the cd drive. If it doesn't then the disk is dirty or damaged. Also, not accusing you but windows 2000 is probably the most burned copy of windows around. If this is the case, go to whoever you got the disk from & tell them to re-burn it at 4x if possible but no faster than 6x, then the disk will work. As far as the bus speed is concerned(the jumpers), if the processor is a 100mhz, that's all the faster it will operate. Especially on older pentiums,which it sounds like you have. Now the processors will go to a slower speed, like 166 to 100. Keep in mind when switching cpu's you must set the jumper to the matching or slower speed or it will not post. Also, that speed is half what the actual clock is, meaning, 100 is 200,133 is 266, & 166 is 333 mhz. So if it's a socket 7 or 380 board, you can run an AMD or Cyrix cpu instead of the pentium & use whatever speed you'ld like because AMD products back then didn't lock the multipliers. Also on those older boards, some won't run certain ram speeds, like if the board has 100mhz ram it may not like 133 much. Ram wasn't very backward compatible back then.

Set CPU/FSB speed on KT40A-ANH MB

Don't screw around with jumpers. There are a buttload of fan speed hacks for software on the computer. Google Fan speed hack and you might find one that works.

Ax4per with 1.8GHz does not recognize new 2.8GHz processor. Socket 478. BIOS is current. Is it not plug and play?


Does it POST and can you get into the BIOS? You need to set the FSB to 133MHz and the Ratio to 21x.

(I am assuming you did install the CPU correctly and installed the fan.)

If you can't get into the BIOS, you may need to reset it using JP14 on the motherboard.

Turn OFF power. Remove the AC power cord. Hold the power button in for 5 to 10 seconds. (This is done to discharge any capacitors.) JP14 normally is on Pins 1 and 2. Place the jumper on Pins 2 and 3 for approx. 10 seconds. Then place it back on pins 1 and 2. Connect the power cord and turn it on. This will set all the BIOS settiings to default and you should be able to set the FSB and Ratio.

Do you have a manual for the MB? you can get it from:

Thanks for using Fixya.

2600+ with ASUS MB A7V266-E/AA

Here is the CPU Support list from Asus Support, for the Asus A7V266-E,

Scroll down the list. 34th one down, that is listed.

1.Did you get the Athlon XP 2600+ that has a 266MegaHertz, (MHz), Front Side Bus? (FSB)
The AXDA2600DKV3C?

There is an Athlon XP 2600+ that has a 266MHz FSB, and one that has an FSB of 333MHz. <-This one Won't work.
Model number ->AXDA2600DKV3D will Not work.
Both are Thoroughbred A/B Core models.

The AXDA2600DKV3C has a 12.5x multiplier.
Your 1900+ has a 12x multiplier. (AXDA1900DUT3C) They both have an FSB of 133MHz. (Shown as 266MHz because AMD processors are 'Double-Pumped')

A.The AXDC2600DKV3C will not work. It has a 16x multiplier. (Thorton Core)
B.The AXDC2600DKV3D will not work. It has a 333MHz FSB. (Thorton Core)
C.The AXDA2600DKV4C will not work. It has a 15x mulitplier. (Barton Core)
D.The AXDA2600DKV4D will not work. It has a 333MHz FSB. (Barton Core)
E.The AXDA2600DKV4E will not work. It has a 400MHz FSB. (Barton Core)

2.Are the jumper blocks -> CPU RATIO, and SYSCLK, still set in the Jumper Free Mode?

By the factory default settings these jumper blocks, (DIP switches), should already be set to Jumper Free Mode.
The white DIP switches should be in the OFF position. (The white switches will be DOWN, towards the numbers on the jumper block CPU RATIO. They will be UP, away from the numbers, on the jumper block SYSCLK))

The CPU RATIO jumper block is right above the processor. It is a blue rectangular block.
The SYSCLK jumper block is down the motherboard, right below the AGP graphics card expansion slot. (And above the first PCI expansion slot)

If those two jumper blocks are not set to Jumper Free Mode, set the DIP switches in the jumper blocks to this setting.

Now go into BIOS Setup. In the main menu use the Right Side Arrow key on your keyboard, and highlight Advanced.
If -> CPU Speed is set to Auto, you won't have access to set your CPU parameters. If it is set to Manual, you will see them. If it's set to Manual, write down the headings, (CPU:System Frequency Multiple, System/PCI Frequency (MHz), and so on) Write down the numbers to the right of these headings. If something goes wrong, you can go back into BIOS Setup, and change them back.

1.CPU:System Frequency Multiple should be
2.System/PCI Frequency (MHz) should be
3.System/DRAM Frequency Ratio should be
4.CPU Vcore should be (1.750)
5.CPU Level 1 cache, and Level 2 cache should be (Enabled)
6.CPU Level 2 cache ECC Check should be (Disabled)
7.BIOS Update should be (Enabled)
8.PS/2 Mouse Function Control (Auto)
9.USB Legacy Support (Auto)
10.OS/2 Onboard Memory >64M (Disabled)

Leave the rest alone.

The AXDA2600DKV3C uses 1.65 volts, has a 12.5 clock multiplier, and a 266MHz FSB. (You will see 133MHz, and set all your settings to 133MHz. AMD processors are 'Double-Pumped'. Intel processors are 'Quad-Pumped')

Starts without ram but not with ram

The FSB jumper is not for the memory. It's for the CPU.

Set that back to 100mhz and try it again.

CPU Upgrade

Athlon XP 3000+ is 400mhz FSB according to the link(,,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 (
