Confused about MB/CPU compatibility

Discussion in 'AMD Overclocking' started by Frank Dreyfus, Oct 20, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    I just bought an ECS K7VTA3 mb with an AMD Athlon XP 2400+ Socket A
    Thoroughbred Tray Processor.

    This was a bundled item from outpost.com so I assume the two are

    But the terminology is confusing me.

    The mb manual lists jumper settings for various cpu's. The options are
    100mhz, 133mhz and 166mhz.

    But the cpu is listed as 266mhz fsb.

    How do I reconcile these? What jumper setting would be correct? Is
    there are disparity in terminology re: cpu speed and fsb?

    Thanks, Frank
