Question about Biostar M7VIG-400 (M7VIG 400-COMBO4) Motherboard
I have a Biostar mobo Model M78VIG 400, and I am trying to upgrade the CPU to an AMD Athlon XP 2600. I updated the bios recommended by the vendor, changed the frequency jumper to 133Mhz (it has a thunderbird core), but the bios still only see the CPU as an Athlon XP 667Mhz. What am I missing?
I updated the BIOS and just installed an Athlon XP 2200+ in one of these boards. At first, it recognized it as an Athlon 1600. In the frequency control section of the BIOS, it allowed me to set it as high as 132. After changing it to 132, the BIOS showed the CPU as an Athlon 2200. I've benchmarked it and ran stress tests off of the UBCD and it appears fine.
Biostar reports the board as accepting Semprons and other CPUs up to 200mhz FSB speed. Go figure. Your best bet is to upgrade the BIOS and then set the clock to 132.
