Hi bluee, this could be for a number of reasons. Firstly my pc is AMD 2400+ (or something) but it does'nt run than high. Shows up at 2200, but it's nothing to be concerened about. It'll never run as high as the product is marked. We have a topic on this Click Here.

And maybe this thread would be useful to you ...Click Here.

Hope this jelps <_<

You can most likely change the FSB in BIOS. Look at your motherboard manual to know how to do it.

Try AMD's CPU Information Display Utility.

Found here: http://www.amd.com/u...71_2364,00.html

This utility displays the processor signature, approximate speed, L1/L2 cache sizes, processor revision, and instruction extensions supported.


CPUID is also useful, but more advanced: http://www.amd.com/u...es/amdcpuid.exe
