I have a Intel D850MV and upgraded the CPU from 1.6ghz to 2.4ghz. I got the latest bios installed P15. The problem is, why does it only run at 1.8ghz?? Could it be that the voltage is to low, but how can I change that? Not in bios anyway =(. Tried SoftFsb, getfsb and many other like it, but they don´t support my motherboard. Is there any jumper that I can move to get the voltage higher? Hope there is someone that can help me out..

Re: Processor upgrade from 1.6 to 2.4
you must be missing something. Please go over this Intel link: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d850mv/sb/CS-009910.htm
Double check your board revision. Instruction / location for this is on the site above. Even though you have the correct revision no# the Pent 4, 2.4GHz CPU can only run with the correct revision (AA numbers) listed.
There are no jumpers on the Intel D850MV MB to help increase the CPU speed nor bios menu to help. Enter the bios. Open Main. This bios does not allow any CPU options.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Sounds like the processor you're trying to upgrade to isn't the same frequency. The processor, motherboard, and memory have a matched frequency. For example; a motherboard with a frequency of say PC4200 will only accept a processor and memory of a PC4200 frequency. If you try to use PC5300 memory it basically won't do anything, blank screen, or maybe a beep. The same if you tried to use a processor with PC5300 on the PC4200 board. The best way to find the frequency rating is to look on the memory. They class the memory by frequency, but rarely ever list the frequency for the board or processor. Research the new processor to find out the memory class and then see if it matches the memory in your machine. If it doesn't then the processor won't work. If it does, then new processor may not be compatible, and that means more research.

so this is the board..no doubt that the cpu fits and is a good choice for you. however,if the old one works fine and this one ,even if it is new,does not wiork,the only rational conclusion is that this one is malfunctioning ,maybe from the factory,or maybe one of the pins doesnt make a real contact. check very attentive the integrity of the pins and of the cpu socket in the motherboard. there are also some cases that the motherboard doesnt support the high Frequence of the new processor,but that was a problem for the old PCs..I doubt you have it with your motherboard. I suggest you to bring it back and to ask for a replacement,or at least go with it to a specialised cervice and let them check it. sorry for not beeing a huge help to you,so dont rate my answer if you dont feel to.. bye bye and good luck..keep me up to date with your situation bye
>Can I upgrade the processor as well? Pentium 3 is compatible and what is the maximum MHz?
Maximum CPU for GA-6BXE is Celeron-1400 (Tualatin core, with PowerLeap Adapter:
...and patched bios by BIOS Patcher:
(last official BIOS don`t support Tualatin CPU-s)
>A bigger HD will be compatible?
With last F3a-version or patched bios - upto 128Gb.
>The BIOS can aslo be upgraded?
For max CPU / HDD - must be upgraded.
