P3 600EB on a FIC KA11... why is clock only 100Mhz

I have a FIC KA-11 PCB 2.2 Mainboard and a P3 600 Mhz "EB" processor with a "133 Mhz" FSB. Why is the clock in the bios and on reports only 100 Mhz? I thought it was a 133 Mhz FSB with a "4.5x" multiplier not a 100 Mhz FSB with a "6x" multiplier. Help me out and tell me how I can make it use my 133Mhz system bus to its full potential with PC133 memory and all.

He who lets woman on top is FU<KING UP.

  1. Is it a 600E or a 600EB? According to Intel's site (I posted a url for the page), the E designation actually meant that it used .18 micron (versus .25 on earlier PIII's). The B designation meant that it had a FSB of 133. So, if you have a 600E, it's still 100 MHz, if you have a 600EB, then it is a 133 MHz FSB.

  2. Oops, I'm so stupid, I didn't even see that you specifically had the EB there. Sorry.

    Anyway, what you can try is to set the FSB manually to 133 MHz. I'm not familiar with your BIOS, so I'm not sure specifically how you would do it, but usually it will have Auto and Manual settings. Put it to manual and select 133 MHz FSB.
