Change the frontside bus setting to 166MHz. It sounds like it is still set at 133. Both your old 1600+ and the Sempron 2500+ use a multiplier of 10.5, so coincidentally if you run the Sempron at 133 FSB, your system interprets it as a 1600+.

If your board is like this KM2M' ">http://www.msi.com.tw/program/...ail.php?UID=411&kind=1, you don't have a 166 setting and will not be able to run the Sempron at its normal specification.

okay i just checked at MSI's site on the board info..


i searched for KM2 and found KM2M Combo-L which doenst support CPUs with a bus speeds of 333.. only up to 266.. if thats your board.. then u it can only run at a FSB of 133.. hence u wont be able to run the CPU at its intended speeds. you'll need a new motherboard


JHawk56: Ya know u could have just used the edit button... dont think you're allowed to double post
