CPU Frequency in BIOS

Q: CPU Frequency in BIOS

I have a a GeFORCE6100SM-M HT2000 motherboard, an AMD Sempron 3400+ processor, and two sticks of 1 GB DDR2 800 MHz ram. When I go into BIOS, it says that my "CPU Frequency" is 200 MHz. I was wondering if this is the same thing as my processor's clock speed. It allows me to increase this number, but only in very small increments between 200 and 300 MHz. Obviously, these numbers are far too low for my processor, so I was wondering if there is something that I need to do on my motherboard like putting those little plastic caps on the pins or perhaps changing a different option in BIOS. I did not see anything in my manual about the little plastic caps though. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: CPU Frequency in BIOS

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: CPU Frequency in BIOS

That should be your BUS speed, not your clock speed.

Download CPU-Z and check your Bus Speed and your multiplier.

200MHz should be nowhere near your clock speed, and the only reason you should even change that number in BIOS would be in an attempt of overclock your CPU. I'm sure you do need jumpers etc. for doing that.

You can also check your clock speed by right clicking "My Computer" then clicking "Properties".

I was at Goodwill yesterday and I found an ECS K7SEM v1.0 motherboard for $6. Assuming that it works, I wouldn't mind getting an AMD cpu and some RAM to get this going as a multi-purpose additional computer for my apartment.

The original intent of this board was for AMD processor running at either 100Mhz or 133Mhz FSB. The manual for the motherboard says that the RAM speed cannot be less than the processor FSB. For example: according to the manual, if the CPU has a FSB of 133Mhz, then PC133 RAM must be used and PC100 RAM cannot be used. If a CPU has a FSB of 100Mhz, then either PC100 or PC133 RAM can be used, but not PC66.

This manual was printed in 2001. However, in 2002/2003, a new BIOS upgrade was created for this board to allow support for Athalon XP 2100 and 2200 processors.

I was looking at an AMD XP processor at newegg and realized that the FSB is 266Mhz, according to the specs. I always get confused about FSB ratings. Are you supposed to divide this number by 2 with AMD chips? Like if the FSB is 266Mhz, should I use PC133 RAM to be compliant with the statement in the manual about using RAM that matches or exceeds the CPU FSB?

Another question I had is related to the new BIOS update that supports the newer processors. Would I need to use an old processor in order to update the BIOS before I can use the XP processor? Or will I be able to update to the XP supporting BIOS with the XP processor already in the socket?

If everything goes smooth... Read more

A:CPU FSB frequency and RAM frequency agreement, and BIOS CPU support.

When an AthlonXP is advertised with a 266mhz FSB, it is actually running at 133mhz but its DDR nature makes it run as fast as a 266mhz FSB. Any 266mhz AthlonXP should work on that board provided it isn't above the 2200+ ( 1800mhz ).

My PC has been crashing for some time now and I have been chalking it up to Vista, until today it beeped at me and gave me a black screen saying I had to reset my memory frequency in bios. I compared it to what my RAM says, and the volts are correct, but my RAM says 7 - 7 - 7 @ 1.9v, when I checked the frequency, my bios is set at 8 - 8 - 8 - 28. I could change the 8s to 7s but I have no idea what to change the tRAS to(currently set at 28). Also, should command per clock still be set to 2T? I am using 2 sticks of 2 gig RAM if that makes a difference.

Well, the title sums it up really...

I OC'ed my AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE to it's 16x multiplier, at a comfy 3.2 GHz, just to test things and familiarize myself with it's voltages. After I set the thing to 16x and rebooted, I checked windows to see if it actually showed 3200 MHz, but it didn't. I then ran CPU-Z and Core Temp, both of which showed exactly 3200 MHz and a 16x multiplier.

My question: Is this just a bug in windows and is my CPU actually 3,2 GHz, or is there something else going on?

The fact that CPU-Z shows higher, changing, voltages (BIOS Core Voltage is set to 'Auto') means to me that windows is doing it wrong. But I might be completely mistaking.

Also, on a sidenote, I wondered if the popular 'Can You Run It' webservice shows realtime CPU clock speed, or just the stock value. Because it's showing the stock value for me, but I thought it might just be getting that from where windows is getting it (the wrong location I hope that is).

Any assistance on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. After upgrading BIOS to 2.12 the CPU frequency is locked to the lowest possible (disregarding BIOS settings). Plugging in the battery makes it work again.For the sake of prolonging my battery life I ususally run without it when safely docked at home.Anyone else experiencing this? I assume it's a bug?

A:Bios upgrade to 2.12 on T460p locks cpu frequency to lowest when running without battery

It sounds like a bug might have been fixed.  I would expect it to slow down if you had just a battery (no A/C) or just A/C (no battery).  The charhing circuity won't "cook" the battery.  It will stop charging when it is fully charged.

hi guys.. i am just confuse with my ram... CPUZ tells me that i have a PC3-8500F RAM w/c has a frequency of 1066 mhz but when i check the memory tab in CPUZ it says that my dram frequency is 399 mhz... What does this mean?

A:RAM Frequency

See the DDR table at http://hallicino.hubpages.com/hub/DDR1__DDR2__DDR3_Navigating_The_RAM_Maze .

I don't use CPUZ so I can't interpret where it got that 399/400 number. That usually applies to DDR2 modules, as you can see...or your RAM is underclocked currently so that it performs like DDR3-800. Memory Clock: 100 MHz. Bus Clock: 400 MHz. Data Transfers/Sec.: 800,000,000. Module Name: PC3-6400.

I am not certain why there's a substantial difference for idling CPU frequency between W8.1 and W7. My PC runs both OS in dual-boot mode, controlled by EUFI "F12" key. Other than both OS having it's own SSD drive, the hardware is identical.

Both OS used HWMonitor, v1.27.0, initially just to see the CPU temperature that lead me to the CPU frequency differences.

The HWMonitor for Windows 7 shows this:

The same for Windows 8.1 shows this:

And no, there isn't anything pegging the CPU, W8.1 task manager shows low CPU utilization around at the time the HWMonitor image had been captured:

The CPU speed/frequency is actually confirmed by the task manager. Is speedstep broken in Windows 8.1, or HWMonitor is not accurate?

Heya

I have this online game that I play(Asheron's Call) and I've played it for years on the same monitor(Gateway EV700)

It read:

“% of Maximum Frequency” represents the current CPU clock speed as a percent of its rated speed. For example, if you have a 2.8 GHZ CPU and performance monitor indicates 28%, then the CPU is running at 784 MHz.

A:CPU Frequency

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

It sounds to me like your bios has been reset to the default settings, which will mean your fsb is probably set to 100mhz.

You need to go into your bios, and select the advanced tab, and then the advanced chipset configuration.

you will need to set the cpu frequency(fsb) to what ever your cpu should run at, I.E it will either be 133mhz/166mhz/200mhz depending on your cpu.

You can check your cpu specs at the AMD website.http://139.95.253.213/SRVS/CGI-BIN/...217292174,K=9272,Sxi=6,RESTART,DTree=OBJ(2132) Click on processor specs, followed by your type of cpu.

Memory above PC3200 is designed for overclocking, so when you overclock the CPU you can keep the memory at a 1:1 ratio. You won't get any benefit from using anything higher, as an AMD64 runs at the same speed as PC3200.

Hey guys,

I noticed something weird in my RAM. I've got two Kingston modules now, having replaced my Corsair modules that might have caused all my problems. They are two DDR3-1333 modules, supposedly running at 667MHz. But when I check using sensors, they run slightly higher than that. See the images I've included.

The thing is, the Corsair modules did exactly the same thing. 668MHz in stead of 667MHz. And MemTest+ shows them running at DDR3-1337 in stead of DDR3-1333...

My question is: is this a problem? Can it hurt? I know it seems like a very small indiscrepancy, but after having had so many BSODs, I wonder... (I've yet to find out if switching from Corsair to Kingston fixed my problems, that'll take a few days to find out).

I hope you can answer this strange riddle for me.

SOLVED: The question was answered .

A:RAM frequency indiscrepancy

It's not a problem. The front side bus speed won't be exact, and the ram speed is a multiplier of the FSB. Your difference is so tiny as to be explained by the monitoring program even. I wouldn't worry about it. Your quality Ram can no doubt even be overclocked to run at higher speeds safely, so this very tiny difference is completely normal and safe. A Guy

Okay this might sound like a strange question but normally its a simple measure of putting in a new RAM chip when you want to add RAm to your desktop. strangely my new CPU ahs run into some preoblems with adding the RAM.

when I built my PC is january I wanted it to have 2 GB of DDR 2 RAM. however something is dodgy- when I put in two RAM chips into my motherboard it crashses every time without fail I ahve checked the slot configuration for the RAM and it's in the right position. however wen I put in one rAM chip it works fine.

A friend suggested I check my RAM frequency and how many channnels, but I have no idea how to change/chekc this. My motherboard manual is not helpful at all either. any ideas anyone?

by the way, the RAM chips are perfectly fine. I checked them out on someone elses CPU and they work alright. might be a problem with the motherboard, but I somehow doubt so.

for your info:
motherboard: MSI K9N NEO V3
ram: 2 kingston HYPERX DDR2 !gb

I just have setup my new motherboard (ASUS A7N8X Deluxe) with Athelon XP 2100+. I set the external CPU frequency at 133Mhz with Multiplier 13X. Because I have 2x 256MB DDR400 (PC 3200) memory I set the memory frequency to 150%. But the output of the memory only shows 200Mhz. Did I setup anything wrong? Do I have to modify anything the maximize my use of DDR400 RAM? Also My memory test shows only 26000KB when I boot it up. Doesn't it have to show about 52000KB because I have two 256MB memory installed? Lost of questions, lots of answers please!!!
 

A:Memory Frequency

I am in the process of this to. I think it would be using a multiplier of times 2. I just set mine to 166 for 333ddr. gave me options of 133 for 266ddr and mine then 200 for 400ddr.

I have a computer with AMD E-450 dual core processor. It is quite slow and I have been trying to work out if each processor has 1.65Ghz frequency (totalling 3.3 Ghz) or if each processor has only 0.825 Ghz frequency (totalling 1.65 Ghz). Can anyone tell me? Thank you.
 

A:Processor frequency

If the cores are rated at 1.65Ghz then each core is 1.65 Ghz.
They are not additive.
Some software will use both cores,some won't.
1.65 Ghz is not all that fast by todays standards.

I have an excel work sheet that uses colors in a matrix of people and skills they posses.

along the y axis would be the people, along the x axis would be the skill.

i am denoting colors, green=skilled, blue=needs refreshment, red=not trained.

I need to tabulate how many skills each person has.

Is there a way to be able to count the number of times a color, (i.e green) box occurs in a row/column?

Hello people. I'm a bit confused about my ram frequency. I have 2GB DDR2/800Mhz ram memory,but when I go in CPU-Z i got this:
It says that the memory is working on 400 MHz. Also another print from Everest.
I haven't changed something. Why the memory is working on 400Mhz?

Thanks in advance. Boshko.

A:Question about RAM frequency

Looks OK to me. It's DDR ram, which stands for Double Data Rate. Double 400 and you have 800.

I have some mp3/wav sounds and i want to convert them in high frequency.
So i need a high frequency software.
Any idea?

A:high frequency

Are you trying to convert from 44,100Hz to 96,000Hz ?

Why are you trying to convert anyway? You're final result will only be as good as the native file (like converting an mp3 to Wav)

I am running an ASUS P4P800se Mobo with an Intel 3.2gh processor and Windows XPpro sp2. I have 2 512 mb sticks of matched Crucial Ballistics ram and 2 matched 512 mb sticks of Kingston HyperX ram running in dual channel mode at supposedly 400 mhz freq. When I boot up I see that the ram freq. is 320 mhz, dual channel, linear mode. Is this normal? Why isn't it running at 400 mhz? I have been having stop error problems as well but I don't think it's related because the ram has been working fine for weeks, albeit verrry slow to check during boot-up. It's gotten considerably faster lately, (after Bios update) but it still takes a couple of minutes to check "NVram". I will start another thread about the AGP440 stop errors as soon as I am sure that reinstalling the drivers for my Radeon X1600 pro did not fix the problem. So far so good.

Thanks: Mark
