Unable to clock to 1.4 mhz with ak73proa

By leebenham ·
I've just assembled an ak73 pro (a) running a 1.4 mhz amd cpu. When I booted up, the speed was showing 1052 mhz x 10.5. This ran ok. I changed the jumper fsb from 100 to 133 and the pc then boots up showing 1.4 mhz but then freezes shortly after boot up has finished. I changed the dip switch from default to 10.5 X 133, but this didn't help.

Unable to clock to 1.4 mhz with ak73proa

This is not a CPU problem.
This is usually a memory problem.
Check CAS is set to 3 (Not 2) in the BIOS.
Check the SIMMs to make sure a 100 did not get mixed in.
Swap the SIMMs in their slots to check for a bad chip on one of the SIMMs.
Go back to the original 100 MHz FSB and run a memory test program.
One of these tests should show the problem.

:
I am assuming that you mounted the heat sink properly.
A poor contact between the CPU and the Heatsink can also cause this. (Not Common, but it happens.)

I assumed you had the proper CPU. Its worth a check, things happen.
The suggestion in Ans. #2 to try some 150 MHz memory is also a good troubleshooting technique.

Also the 1.4 chip comes in 100 and 133 bus specs be sure and check the chip at AMD
as well as the memory should be a quality CAS2 133 or better or but a stick of 150+ memory it is cheap now
