your motherboard doesnt support 800mhz FSB

so im guessing its defaulting to 100 x 15 which is 1.5ghz

your going to need a new mobo...

or a new proc...

your mobo supports prescotts with the A letter not E

E prescotts are all 800mhz fsb and A are all 400mhz

by the way if your looking for a good mobo dont get the abit IS7, its had problems with prescotts also...

Sorry bout the problem

The "A" Prescotts are 533 fsb


And you could always try to overclock the board to 200fsb.

thanks london i just didnt feel like looking it up


i knew that when he said its saposed to be a 3.0 and its running at 1.5

i knew it was his mobo... i just threw all that other stuff out there


now i look stupid LoL but i was still right about his mobo not supporting the 800mhz fsb

So what????

Overclocking to get to stock speeds? Well thats a new one! lol
BUT, wouldn't that just totally kill the motherboard by having that much power moving through the lines (mabobys in the PCB for transporting data) that are only able to handle 533mhz?

Yeah, it probably would kill it. But it would be fun trying anyway!
That's what I would do. Seriously though, you should probably take back the mobo and get a new one, such as an Abit IC7 series, Asus P4P or P4C series, or DFI 875 chipset mobo.

if i were you i would try and up the FSB to 200Mhz (double the mobo FSB). You'll need to get a new board anyway so you might aswell for fun, it wont damage your CPU at all.

I bet if you actually did that though, you would probably see visible scaring of the mobo's pipelines.. I saw that on a review of a P4 3.4EE running on a crap motherboard. They had it running a 1000mhz FSB when the mobo was only made for 533mhz. When they pulled it out, the motherboard had burn marks on the pipelines, and the northbridge was fried, lol.

Really? Wow, that would be pretty cool to watch
