OK so my system got stupidly unstable awhile ago, totally random lock ups... even during POST.. so i reset the CMOS settings to default and have left them at that for the past few months.
Everything is now stable, but by using the CMOS default settings, my chip is underclocked to 1.35GHz (it's a 2200+ Thoroughbred which should be running at 1800GHz).
So i thought i'd tempt fate, and reset the settings back to what they 'should' be.. and according to every guide i've read, it should be 133x13.5.
But the stupid thing is, I don't get an option for 13.5 in my CMOS
The options i get are: from x6 up to x15 but also with one option being "12.5/13".
So hmm yeah does anyone know what settings i should be using?
Ohh and im probably missing something obvious, but how come i can only set the FSB to 133, when (according to the AMD specs) should run at 266? (I'm assuming its something to do with DDR settings?)
I dunno, i haven't upgraded my mobo/CPU in years, so i'm totally out of the loop, so excuse my ignorance!
Thanks for any help!
(Mobo is a MSI KT3 Ultra2)
