I just swapped a retail boxed 3200+ into my PC that was running a 2600+.

No real problems, but how do I tell I'm actually running at 400 Mhz FSB?

On boot, the message I get is "Memory frequency is at 200 Mhz, Dual Channel Mode". Is it actually running at 400?

Retail 3200+ and fan
A7N8X Deluxe v.2.0
1 GB Mushkin Blue DDR PC3200

The FSB jumper is set correctly.

Memory is set to 6-3-2-2T (Mushkin told me to use those timings when I originally installed the 2600+)

CPU is runnning at 47-50 degrees C, motherboard is at 30C.

Other than that, BIOS is set to Optimal and running the latest v.1008.

If you need any other info, let me know. So where should I be looking for validation that I'm actually running at 400 Mhz FSB?

Is there anything I should experiment with in the BIOS to enhance performance without having to go to other fans, etc.

The FSB and RAM's actual speed is 200 MHz. But because it is DDR, it is effectively 400 MHz.

You can download and run CPU-Z, or CBID to confirm what speed you are running at.
