    I thought I asked this question in this group at some point before, and
    got answers, but I can't find the thread using Google groups. So, I need
    to ask again:

    What are the proper CPU speed and memory (PC2700) bios settings for an
    Athlon XP2600+ (166 FSB) on an Abit KX7-333 motherboard? Any other
    settings besides those I should know about, like CPU temp for warning and
    shutdown?

    Thanks very much for any help - again.

    Sheepishly,

    Alan

    There's at least 3 models of the 2600+.
    Tbred 2600+/266 @ 16x133
    Tbred 2600+/333 @ 12.5x166
    Barton 2600+/333 @ 11.5x166

    Its been awhile. Seems like someone posted in (in previous thread)
    that the kx7 didn't support a 166 FSB - as per abit and the
    motherboard manual. The thing is, barring a memory problem, they seem
    to all work at 166 MHz.

    When the kx7 was produced by abit there wasn't an AMD official 166 FSB
    Athlon on the planet earth. They only sold 133 MHz FSB Athlons.
    Hence their was no way for Abit to test and claim that the kx7 worked
    at 166 FSB. Later on, when a real 166 Athlon was available, it became
    apparent that there was not a problem. In addition, ppl had been
    overclocking 133 FSB Athlons to 166 FSB long before the official 166
    FSB Athlon was available. Again, with no problems.

    Is that the info you were looking for?

    Sorry - forgot to post that detail. It's a Barton 2600+ 333 FSB. I just
    got it from NewEgg, so it's still pictured on their site. I have it set
    at 12.5x166, and it's working and running cool (around 36C - I do few
    processor-intensive things.)

    I've done nothing with memory settings beyond setting Fast and 5:2:1.
