So I ordered a new processor from tigerdirect.com, a 3000+ (FSB 333). Well, I got a processor today, but I'm not so sure it's a 3000+. I installed it and WCPUID is reporting the following:

-------------
[ WCPUID Version 3.3 © 1996-2004 By H.Oda! ]

Processor #1 : AMD Athlon XP (Model A) / 5B29D844
Platform : Socket A (Socket 462)
Vendor String : AuthenticAMD
CPU Type : Original OEM Processor (0)
Family : 6 (7)
Model : 10 (10)
Stepping ID : 0 (0)
Brand ID : - (-)
APIC : ----
HT Log.CPU Cnt : ----
Name String : AMD Athlon™

Internal Clock : 1737.27 MHz
System Bus : 267.27 MHz DDR
System Clock : 133.64 MHz

L1 I-Cache : 64K Byte
L1 D-Cache : 64K Byte
L1 T-Cache : ----
L1 Cache : ----
L2 Cache : 512K Byte
L2 Speed : 1737.27 MHz (Full)
--------------


Now is it just me, or shouldn't the 3000+ clock speed be 2167MHz, not 1737.27? Did I get sent a 2100+ by accident, or something?

*weary sigh*

'Load Setup Defaults' in the motherboard bios - or set the FSB speed to 166 MHz. Does the motherboard support the 3000+?

133 X 13 = 1.73 GHz
166 X 13 = 2.16 GHz

That did it.

Thank you. That was easier than I was expecting it to be. Really, thank you TONS!
