OK, I am a newbie, so go easy. I have a question about my new P4 1.8A GHz. I also have a P4T-E Asus motherboard, and PC800 RDRAM.
I get everything set up and turned on, and I start running some diagnostics. They all say I am running at 1.983GHz. It takes me a while to figure this out (and in fact I still haven't).
My BIOS is set to 1760MHz, and the mobo is set to jumper free (default). By manually setting up the jumpers, I am able to get it to 1.8GHz no problem. But do I want to? Is 1.98GHz going to adversly affect anything? I have the standard P4 heatsink/fan that came in th P4 box. The Asus Probe utility that came with the mobo says that my CPU is running at 54-56°C anyway, regardless of the clockspeed, and that the mobo is at 28-29°C.
Does any of this make sense, do I need to change anything, and what speed would be safe to run my P4 at? Any info, advice, or help wouf be greately appreciated.
