Never really used AMD much mostly stuck to Intel, but i just bought a Abit motherboard and it's saying my new amd 64 3200 processor is running at 575 mhz according to windows. Any help would be appriciated.

most likly its a bios issue you need to up from 400 to 800fsb - thats very low like 200fsb?

go to bios cpu area and check the frequncy it should be 200

200x4=800fsb

Actually its not very weird because its AMD but
Restore your BIOS to default .
then find CPU bus and set it to 200 Mhz.
checkout V core also(suggest CPU-Z program)
.

Looks like you guys are right, but it isn't the fsb as i've manually changed that and nothing has changed, but when i go into "Advanced Bios features" and under "CPU Feature" i can change it to either "Auto", or 4x - 800 mhz, 5x- 1000mhz, 6x - 1200 mhz, 7x - 1400 mhz, 8x - 1600 mhz, 9x - 1800mhz, 10x - 2000 mhz.

Now normally im assuming thats how i change my speed, but no matter what i change my speed won't go any higher than 575, and if i chose like 4x or 5x, its like only 250 mhz for my processor speed under windows. I just have one more question, is there any way i can update my bios with a burned CD Or DVD since i don't actually have a 1.44 drive atm.

Cool n quiet maybe. If you put some cpu crunching app to work, do the speed raise?

Cool n Quiet will make windows think funny things. I have seen lower numbers such as 300.

Get CPU-Z and see the speed, if it is 1000mhz(or near) then you are running Cool n Quiet and it is doing its job.

If it is 2000mhz(2200mhz for new castle). You are running with no Q n C, and all is good

Athlon 64's tend to all run @ 200fsb, But they don't use FSB to communicate anyway so do not let the 200 fool you it is normal.
