I am running a celeron 2 566 it overclocks pass 900mhz. I am useing Asus latest slotket and a Chaintech 6ATA4 mobo with VIA chipset.

When I set to default it comes up with 850mhz which is 100mhz FSB now when I set it to 101mhz FSB it starts at like 400 and goes to like 408mhz when I set the FSB to 102mhz.

What the hell is up with that? Any ideas? Why does it just drop to 400mhz when I set the FSB past 100?

Thanks

Can you tell a difference? Sometimes the bios will report it wrong, but it will actually be correct. Try getting all the way into Windows and use some type of CPUID program to see what it is really running at. Good Luck.

Well I just tried CPUID but no matter what I set the FSB at CPUID reads it as a 850mhz whats up with that?

it doesn't matter what the BIOS says when you boot up. (i had an old gateway that i stuck a celeron 400 in. BIOs said 333mhz chip)

just run CPUID and see what the speed is.
