I recently installed a new motherboard into a system, an epox 8krai pro.
Everything went smoothly except now the processor is running at 900 mhz, FSB showing 200mhz, as opposed to its old value of 1.2 ghz with FSB at 266 mhz. The processor is an amd athlon thunderbird 1.2 ghz 266 fsb.

Is this a normal thing that happens when you install a new motherboard? Or does the processor scale down because of overheat?

To return to 1.2ghz can i just increase the cpu clock speed in the BIOS?(its at 100mhz right now) or do i have to change the FSB somehow?

I am concerned that if there is a problem and I increase the speed to past values I will damage the processor.


Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Yep it's just not set right that's all.Clear cmos and then go into the bios and change fsb from 100 to 133 if it still doesn't detect properly or refer to the manual for jumper settings if that's what your board has.

Most boards default to 100MHz FSB if you change the processor...
