Just installed an Athlon 2800+ processor (333MHz FSB, Barton core, 512Mb\ncahe, 2.08GHz on a new A7N8X-X board. Memory is Samsung 512Mb PC2100\n266MHz. System information reports I have an XP2200+ running at 1.7GHz.\n\nThe board is pretty much set to default, with the exception that I chose the\n"Aggressive" setting, which seems not to make a nary of difference in\nperformance.\n\nI'm a newbie to board tweaking, but have read many articles and have changed\nthe frequency and multiplier incrementally, etc. The board will either not\nboot, or I get worse or the same performance, depending upon what I've\nfooled around with.\n\nI'm a newbie to board tweaking and don't trust what I'm doing. Before I\neven consider overclocking, I'd like to get the board and the 2800+\nprocessor running to the processor's frequency spec., which is listed as\n2.08 GHz. Could my problem be with my RAM, or my ignorance, or both?\n\nWould appreciate any help from you pros out there.
