GA-7N400 MB Clock ratio and Clock Sw settings

  1. I'm putting an Athlon XP2700 with a 333 FSB in a GA-7N400 MB. I'm somewhat
    confused on the switch settings. The manual says to put the clock switch to
    auto (factory setting is off) when using a 333 FSB. I don't understand the
    clock ratio switches. The default settings are all on. Can someone explain
    what the best setting is, and what do I divide into what to determine the

    So you have the CLK_SW to ON which is AUTO, good.
    Now the system clock is free to run at 166mHz.
    Your CPU wants to run at 1833mHz. So, 1833/166=11. !! is the CLK_RATIO ( AKA
    multiplier ). 11 is all switches ON.

    What can I say ?? The 333 comes from the fact that the system clock is
    running at 166 but you have DDR memory so the memory and hence the FSB are
    running at 333.
