Ha ha.......I just went through this last night, thought I was ripped off or losing it! I know your relief and can identify with how happy you were to find this out

What in the world?
The motherboard itself does not say that?
What about the CPU instruction booklet?
I'd be very surprised if none of these two show that.

Actually Eden, I just built-up a system a couple of weeks ago with that MSI KT4, with not-very-impressed results by the way, and the booklet doesn't say the FSB settings, since the board is good for a Duron or an Athlon (I guess). The instruction manual that comes with MSI boards lacks technical info.. mind you, thats up to the builder to get. Still... couldn't help but get a laugh in... XP2200 running at 1.5... hehehehe

Still, if one is building a computer they should be aware of the fsb for their processor. Although we are all prone to oversight now and again.

I had the same problem when I came back with my XP 1900+ on MSI KT3 Ultra 2. It was XP 1200MHz instead of 1600MHz for 1900+. I didn't bother to look in the manual, but go directly to BIOS and set the FSB from 100MHz to 133MHz. I wonder why the Motherboard BIOS doesn't have the auto detection function. I remember in the days of BX chipset, most motherboard could detect PII or Celeron CPU and set the FSB to 100MHz or 66MHz correctly.

How can people still be making this same mistake over and over and over again??

Ouch, the best chipset of 2002... tough choice, so many to chose from... and how to base such a decision..? Performance, technological influence, personal prefference... Well, I answered your poll with the "NForce 2" (common, 333FSB & Dual DDR) though I can't complain about the VIA KT333 (hell, I've got an MSI KT3Ultra), except for a couple of little things, its still my favorite. Mind you, performance speaks novels... Though my heart stays with VIA, my glutony directs me towards NVidia's ...

they dont usually.
Its new people making the same old mistake.
Not that there are atleast 2 posts about the 100/133 FSB issue in this forum right now.

Every mobo manula ive read has stated that durons/athlonB's use 100, everything else 133.

Exactly, when I did it I wasn't aware of the problem until I downloaded cpwin and sisoft....see everything was new (mother board and such) I was not even familiar with mobo bios.......I panicked before time I will come here first before beginning the RMA and complaint thing (which I canceled and apologized for). I am totally grateful that the community straightened me out on this.

as soon as they get rid of the 100fsb duron the betta... though having your computer left set at 100 instead of 133 is solely the fault of whoever put it together. If you get it from a computer store like that i consider that pretty bad form!
