hi! it's my first post in this forum! anyway, here's my question! i would like to know what is the best setting for my cpu in the bios advanced menu! as mentioned in the subject i have an Asus A7V266-E with an Athlon xp 1800+ and 512ddr megs\ram ! here's my actual settings:
cpu speed 
cpu:system frequency multiple [11.5] default when set to 1533
system/pci frequency (mhz) [133/33] default when set to 1533
that's pretty much it! are these the best settings for my system???
without overclocking, that would be it. If you want to overclock, you have to experiment on your own. Each board will have different overclockability so just because one A7V266 owner says they can reach a FSB of 150 for instance, doesn't necessarily mean yours can. It's a process of trial and error.
