I am trying to figure out how to set the FSB clock jumpers on my mobo. It is aMSI KM4M-V Socket A and the processor is a AMD Athlon XP3000+ processor with a Barton Core and 333FSB. I can set the jumpers to CPU frequency of either 133 MHZ, 166MHz or 200MHz. What should these jumpers be set at since from what I gather the processor has a 333 FSB.

Your mobo FSB should be a multiple of your CPU FSB.. Therefore, if your CPU is running 333, then 166 x 2 = 332 (close enough)..

hey murray! i was wondering about that too.... but i just read this and was wondering why does the mobo fsb have to be a multiple of the cpu fsb?
( i dont know much) but wouldnt it be the computer as a whole be faster if both the fsb's were set to the max. or would it bottle neck or something?


just wondering... thanks... - Josiah
