Hello. I've purchased this processor but I can't configure it correctly. I have an ASUS A7N8X-X motherboard, and when I switch on the compter, it recognises an athlon 1050 mhz only. In the bios, I put all the advanced chipset settings on DEFAUT (except the cpu external fecuency than I put on 166mhz) I must change the multiplicator? Do you have the specifications of this processor, In the AMD 7th generation specifications PDF it isn't listened, and I can't know the real frequency of the processor... Thanks for all, And sorry about my bad (very bad) english.
Have you set the motherboard jumpers correctly? I think the motherboard is factory set for the "safe" settings of 100MHz fsb. Look in the manual and you should find a section about the jumpers.
