I have recently overclocked my Barton 2600+ (333 FSB from factory) to:

400 mhz x 11.0. for a clock frequency of 2200 mhz.

(Now apparently, this is one of the earlier unlocked Bartons because it lets me change the multiplier)

The bios post now interprets it as a 2800+ equivalent. A recent article I read on this web site about the overclocking potential of the Barton 2600+ indicates that clock frequency of 2200 mhz would yield the equivalent of a Barton 3200+.

Is the bios giving a false report?

it probly should, since xp3200+ runs at 2.2 ghz....but i think the 2800+also runs at that speed, but with different properties which i dont remember what those are...

Hey, I moved your post to the AMD Cpu section.

What kind of motherboard is it?

200x11 should yield a recognition of "3200" not 2800.

2800 bartons are 333 bus, 166*12.5 = 2083, so I dont see how mathematically its registering the processor as a 2800.

MSI KT6VLSR

I flashed the bios with the latest file from MSI's web site. This was supposed to enable the board to work properly with the 3000+ and 3200+ CPUs.

I also noticed that if I do a cold boot the bios posts 2700+ but if I do a restart warm boot it posts 2800+. I contacted MSI about that and the tech suggested trying another power supply. Well, I don't have a spare so I couldn't test that theory. I wonder, however, if the two problems have a common denominator?

Aside from those issues, the configuration seems quite stable.
