Hello, After replacing CPU from E6500 to Intel-E8400 I get in BIOS setup 2400MHz instead of 3000MHz why ?
Thanks-Eli

According to Asus's website your board has the 945 chipset, and only supports a max FSB of 1066. This means your 8400 won't run at the speed its supposed to. You should also be running the 0404 bios. You might be able to overclock it to the correct speed, but its not guaranteed.
