When I run the memory benchmark on the machine the results show that it is running below par with at 1G athlon KT 133, 256 MB machine. Why?
My next confusion is why does the Sandra system summary tell me "PCI bus speed is too high. Reduce FSB speed or FSB/PCI multiplier" It is currently set at 133/44.
Any tips for tuneing this puppy up would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
33MHz is the normal speed for your PCI devices. That probably causes a lot of problems. Read Tom's BIOS tuning guide, and fix up your BIOS. Remember though, that you have to turn on 4-way DRAM Interleave in two places. That'll through you off a bit.
Whoever thinks up a good sig for me gets a prize :wink:
