What FSB do I have?

Just bought a new Gateway with a P4 2.4 and a 533mhz FSB. How do I check my system to see if this is the FSB I have.
I ran 3dmark 2001 SE and I think it said I have 133mhz FSB.
Just want to make sure Gateway didn't screw something up.
I got a 11,331 for a score, just wondering if this is good for an out of the box computer.

Thanks

Pete

More about what have
  1. You got 11.3k for a Gateway? Wow, not bad for an OEM. Yes, it said you have 133mhz FSB, remember, P4's use RDR which is quad pumped, so theoretically, you are running 533Mhz FSB (133x4)

  2. Great thats what I thought but not sure.

    Is there anything small I can do to my system to improve my score. I don't want to get into alot of messing around.

    Like I said I have:
    P4 2.4ghz
    512 ram
    geforce4 4600ti

    Thanks

    P.S I'm new to XP now and notice alot of stuff running in the background when I look in Ctrl+Alt+Del
    Can I turn all the owner stuff off or just don't mess with it.
  3. Hmm...well, unfortunately, you have a relatively high clocked Pentium 4, 18 multiplier, and 133Mhz FSB...the only thing you can do is up the FSB. From what I have heard, it highly depends on the quality of the RAM you have, be it DDR or RDR, your specs on RAM would help here. *shrugs* i've seen most Pentium 4's leveling out at about 150-160Mhz FSB, which is highly respectable.

    Feel free to close some of those programs to free up some memory, although I wouldn't too much, considering you have 512MB, although, Win XP does eat up a lot by itself...i'd say, disable the programs you aren't using, and make sure they don't boot at startup.

  4. Or you could overclock your video card. I'm pretty sure you'll hit over 12000 pretty easily overclocked. Take it little by little though. I use PowerStrip to overclock.
