At present your fsb is set to 100 (100 X 10.5 = 1050) Set it to 166. Hmm 1.75 sounds like a sempron. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Sii November 30, 2004 10:29:45 PM Thanks guys, I changed the FSB to 166 and that worked!! and yes the multiplier was fixed at 11.5 so I couldn't change it, but all seems fine now.
