Did I get what I paid for?

  1. You must check the cpu frequence in the bios.
    When you set this on 133 Mgh, I think the problem is gone.

    I bought an OEM AMD Athlon XP 2400+ processor from a local computer store

    I am going to primarily run FreeBSD on it, but tried it with XP just for
    kicks. When I right clicked the "My Computer" icon and went to properties
    it says under "Computer":

    AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1800+
    1.49 GHz
    1.00 GB of RAM

    So, I ran wcpuid and it came up with:
    Processor: AMD Athlon XP (Model 8)
    Name String: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1800+

    What gives???
    Did I get ripped off, and do I now need to set some people staight?

    Any help here is greatly appreciated.

    Set the FSB to 133 and then you will have a 2400+ running at 2000Mhz. Set
    the FSB to166 (assuming your board supports it) and then you will have a
    2700+ running at 2166MHz. Set it to 180, well, you get the picture.

    15 is the native multiplier of the 2400+ model. Your FSB is at 100MHz. Raise
    it to 133MHz and you'll see 2000MHz, what it should be.

    I screwed up. 13x166 is the 2700+:)
    Although with a lot of luck and enough vcore, you might get 15x166
    (2500MHz), but not likely. 15x144 should be though, for the same 2166MHz.
