Apologies in advance for the dip-sh*t question...
I've just built my system: it's an SN41G2 with Athlon 2500XP (Barton code, 333fsb), pc2700 ddr (2 x 256mb), blah blah blah
It works fine, but I don't know if I've got it running at max speed, maybe someone could inform me? I'm limited in how much I can google / search for as I'm at work (I've just moved house so my broadband is still being reconnected) so I'm hoping someone here can help me quickly.
Right, so I installed all the hardware, and set the fsb to 166 in the bios screen. The 'main' setting is 'Optimal'. I remember seeing somewhere (and I forget where) that my actual internal clock speed was 1.67 or 1.7ghz, but the maximum clock was 2ghz... would that tally with my XP rating of 2500??? If the clock speed is too low, do I have to use the 'Expert' setting, and what do I have to change?
Any help much appreciated!
