BIOS Settings

By ins413 ·
I have recently purchased a new motherboard with a P4 1.8. The board supports PC/1600 DDR memory, which I have filled the banks with. The board is a Tyan 510 Trinity. I check the BIOS settings and the clock frequency is set at 100MHz. The multiplier is set at 18x. These are auto configured settings. The FSB speed listed in the BIOS is at 100 MHz. This doesn't seem right, although it may be. I thought PC/1600 ran at 200MHz. Therefore, shouldn't the settings be at 200MHz and 9x multiplier? The BIOS will allow me to manually configure the settings, but the max frequency is 132MHz. This is a very new board, therefore no updates are necessary. I just don't get it. Can someone please shed some light on this subject? Thank you in advance...

In looking at the board it does support FSB speed up to 400

Check the manual to see if you have a jumperless motherboard or you have to set jumper settings on the motherboard which you will need the manual to make the jumper settings changes

Check the motherboard manual and look for the BIOS setup configuration section

Open the Bios setup and then click on the
Advanced tab,set the correct CPU processor speed and you will notice the FSB will set to correct speed,You will have to manually make the setting changes which you can reference in the motherboard manual as how to make the setting changes

Site for Reference

manual is available

Thanx for responding. I had to got to the manufacturer's site. The reason I was reading this info in the manual is because I had not read the addendum added to it. I appreciate everyone's help.

The front side Bus and the CPU clock are 2 different signals.

The Front side bus is usually not a user option.

The correct settings are 100MHz for the clock, and 18X for the multiplier.
The options for the higher clock are for "over-clockers"and the "odd" frequency CPU's that don't fit the standard multipliers.

You may have an option to set the memory clock to a higher frequency.
I have seen no consistent location in the bios settings for the faster memory setting.
So, without going through the BIOS manual, I couldn't begin to tell you wjhere it is.

I don't like the rating of "unacceptable, it didn't help me". I solved the problem, but gave points to the most helpful answer. Thank you for your response.

100(FSB) x 18x(Multplier) it right, it is 1.8GHz and it is the Internal Clock, which is FSB different from System Bus for Memory or Memory Clock..(ussually higher)

Means FSB is different from Memory Clock...

SYRUPHIN?
