I have a AMD 2400+ CPU installed in my A7N8X-X motherboard that I'm having
so many problems with but will discuss in separate post. Shouldn't my
processor show up as a 2500+ and not an 1800+ It is supposed to be a 2400+
333FSB chip and I'm running PC3200 RAM. When it boots it only shows 1800+
at 200Mhz FSB? Is there something I'm supposed to set or change or is this
right. I would have thought it would show 2400+ at 400MHz FSB. Thanks.

2400+ isnt a speed its a rating, its supposed to run at around 1.8GHz
200Mhz is the 'carrier' or 'real' frequency of 400DDR memory.
I think your computer sounds fine, you just been confused over these
figures -which is easy done at first.

Yea, I think I was confused on the memory, but should the processor still
show the correct processor, all my other pc's show the actual processor
installed in bios 2400+ but when you open in windows shows true speed
