OK, I've stuck a 3000+ Mobile 133 FSB in a A7n8X-E Asus ATX Mobo
running at 12 X 400FSB
Thermaltake Xaser case
Thermaltake Butterfly 480 Purepower PSU
Samsung PC3200 512 X 2 11/3/3/2.5 at 2.8 Volts
ATI 9800 Pro Atlantis 256
at 430 GPU / 375 Mem - Thermaltake Schooner VGA fanless
HeatSink



In AMD's CPUInfo the following Info comes up-

Processor Name: AMD Athlon XP-M
Max Speed: 3300 MHz
Family.Model.Step: 7.10.0
yadda,yaddas - all yes until....
SSE2 support: no
L1 Data Cache 64 K's
L1 Instruction 64 K's
L2 Cache Size 512 K's

Now technically it is a 266 FSB Processor

I'm running like a rock at different times between
11 X400FSB - less or = ; 100 F (2.2 Ghtz)
11.5 X400FSB - = or less ; 107 F (2.3 Ghtz)
12 X400FSB - = or less ; 114 F (2.4 Ghtz)

....in a desktop

The multiplier came factory unlocked, course, it's a mobile and I'm
loving it.

Now the main thing I've got here is why in any CPU info program I've
got, CPUCool, the tools from AMD's site, ect, ect, they ALL say the max
speed of my cpu is 3.3 Ghtz? I'm thinking that's crazy. Of course it
is,

On my 1800 + all these programs said the speed was the max the cpu
could auctualy ran at, which in a 3000+'s case should be 2.2 Ghtz.

I take it if at 2.4 Ghtz, the cpu is already getting up to 114, though
I have a Thermaltake Volcano 12, 3.3 is insane

just wondering what a 3000+ Barton Mobile is about, and where these 3,
3.3 Ghtz #'s are comming from,

Name of the site is banter eh?

Thanks!

firstly, 11x400=4400, etc.
a 3000 mobile is intended to run at 16.5x133 [=2200ish], but as you've
increased the fsb to 200 the calculation is obviously going to show a
larger result [16.5x200=3300].
