After changing the bios to 133/133 the Central Brain Identifier now detects:
General Information
Vendor Name = AuthenticAMD
Central Processor = AMD Athlon XP Processor
Platform = Socket A (462-pin OPGA package)
Family = 6, Model = 10, Stepping = 0
Clock Speed = 2124.27MHz, P-Rating = 2788+
Host Bus Clock = 132.77MHz, FSB Speed = 265.53MHz
Clock Ratio = 16.0, Voltage = 1.616V
L1 Data Cache = 64KB, L1 Cache = 128KB
L1 Instruction Cache = 64KB, L2 Cache = 512KB

Extended Information
CPU String = AMD Athlon Processor
OPN Number = Not determined
Processor Core = Barton, Version = 0.12
Generation = 7, Model = 10, Stepping = 0
Process Technology = 0.13 micron, Revision = A2
Announce Date = Not determined
MMX Techmology = Yes, MMX Extensions = Yes
3DNow! Technology = Yes, 3DNow! Extensions = Yes

Is the above what I should expect from an Athlon XP 2800+ Barton Tray, 640KB, FSB 266MHz Socket A (462) [CPU-Code: AXDA2800DKV4C] in a K7S5A (Rev 1.X) motherboard?

If I do not wish to OC, is there anything to be gained from a bios update from
re any need to update the bios from Release 01/16/08

Thanks as always

Looks fine, running at ~ 2.1GHz, calls it an AMD processor, shows the full L2 cache etc...

You have version 2 of the official bios. Bios revision notes are posted at the site below.' ">

If eveything is working fine then you should probably leave the bios as is.

If you get adventurous you can use or

Use if you are doing a new build. Flashing a K7S5A is not all that hard since the AMIBOOT.ROM trick can be used to recover 90% of the time.
