I have assembled my first PC using a ECS K7VTA3 motherboard and AMD Duron 1.8 GHz CPU. My Windows XP indicates the CPU is operating at 1.3xx GHz. I can set motherboard jumpers for 100-133-166 MHz. I have not checked the as recieved configuration of the jumpers yet. My question:
Will one of the three frequencies (above) if selected provide the maximum capability of my CPU? {It has been suggested that I approach this on a cut and try basis, I would rather not if possible)
Thanks
New to the task of assembling a
desktop computer.

This is more something for the Athlon troubleshooting section
Anyway, you'll have to set the fsb speed to 133Mhz to get the right speed.

Check you manual for proper jumper setting for 133.
