I just finished building my amd athlonxp 2400+ machine and BIOS is reading it as a 1800+

WCPUID is also reading it as an 1800+ (1.5 MHz).. it should be a 2.0 MHz. Any suggestions?

This was my first time installing a heatsink on the processor... next time I'm having the company clamp that sucker together!

Set the FSB to 133MHz. Involves moving a jumper on the motherboard. Consult the motherboard manual for details.

may not involve a jump.
It probably needs to be set in the bios.
As the last dude sais, set the fsb/cpu clock/cpu frequency to 133mhz

I changed the jumper and everything is fine. Thanks. I intended on doing that when I first installed everything... man I need to work on that short-term memory.
