    Intel P4 2533 MHz
    Gigabyte GA-8SQ800
    Award F5 bios
    2048MB ram
    SB Audigy (D800)
    Radeon 9800 Pro

    My front side bus is only running at 133MHz. How can I get it to it's
    max potential of 533MHz? Surely the processor will support it, no?
    Perhaps a different jumper configuration? Although I haven't changed
    any jumper configurations at all. It is still as I bought it.

    Thanks for any info.
    Merry Christmas,

    In Short, you can't., because the P4's bus speed isn't 533MHz or 800MHz.
    It's 133MHz and 200MHz respectively.. See The real front side bus in link
