Athlon XP-m 2400 issue w/ A7N8X-X

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just swapped my XP-M 2400 from my old board (ECS M863G) to a brand new OEM Asus A7N8X-X Rev. 2 (v1010 bios). On the old board the CPU was running at frequencies at 2.143 Ghz without any overclocking.

On this new board on the initial boot, it was at 600mhz, that was with 100mhz frequency, multiplier of 14 and vcore of 1.625. Ive played around with the settings and got it to 1.7 Ghz with 200 Mhz frequency, 8.5/16.5 multiplier, and 1.70 vcore.

Am i doing something wrong here, or is there a problem. I am having trouble finiding what the CPU's factory settings/limits should be in terms of frequency, multiplier and vcore, so maybe i have it set too low?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need to update the ASUS bios so it support mobile processors.

Well this board is revision 2, so it has the latest bios on it version 1010

There is a modded bios out there, but i have to get a new FDD cable to get my FDD working. Any idea on how to flash the bios without a floppy?

Just tried it with a thumb drive. The bios utility installed on the MB doesnt work without a floppy, it just states insert disk and press enter. I disabled the floppy and labeled the thumb drive as a boot device, and the bios utility states that it cannot continue without a FDD....

OK. Well i think i found my problem. I just didnt have the right settings. I have it sitting at 2.39 GHZ w/ a 200MHZ X 12 Multi & 1.824 Vcore All i did was read a few posts of what other people running this CPU had for settings and gave it a shot
