Silly AMD CPU question
Just installed a ne AMD xp2700 in a ecs L7S7a mobo, I am running 1 gig of PC 3200 ram and have set the bios to 200..
When she boots up and in Sandra the CPU only say's 2100+ or 1.73 in sandra.
What step have I missed to get it too 2700.

Does it post as a 2700+ when you boot?

You need to set the FSB to 133 for a 266 cpu.

The 2700 has a 333Mhz bus, not 400...drop your FSB to 166.

VHockey86,, It posts as 2100+,,
Woodbutcher,, I thought I had changed that in the Advanced setup options, under CPU freq, First initial boot was at 133 then I changed it to 200 as per the ram.

Argh,,, I had to maually go down one by one to 166,,, normally they have steps....
I have done this many time on other boards and it has been easy. I guess being my own board I am rushing a bit...

opps lol, I missed the "and" in there and read it as
"when she boots up in sandra", so I thought it was talking about in that program alone.
