I really neeed some help with a problem. I just bought a T-bird slot A 850 to replace my 500 mhz chip on my second computer. This is in an Asus K7M mobo but everything has slowed WAY down. Did I get a bad chip or is there an issue with this motherboard supporting the higher speed? I am running 98se with 3 pc100/133 sticks (all Cas 2) for a total of 256mbs of Ram. Anyone have any ideas?
Just a thought, but maybe your FSB is at 66MHz? I think the T-birds are supposed to run at 100MHz? Or something like that. Use CPUID or something to see if your CPU is running at full speed.
My firewall tastes like burning.
no my fsb is at 100, and with the 500 mhz chip I had it overclocked to 110 and stable. the cpu shows up as a 850 at post but everything is just dog slow.. I wonder if this has anything to do with the L2 cache being half as much? and I can't get my ASUS probe utility to work at all either
