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.


A:Windows shows different CPU frequency than CPU-Z/BIOS

CPU-Z is more accurate then windows with these things, i would say if both it and the bios says you have then windows isn't reading it properly

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.

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 simply means that the game is trying to drive the monitor at a higher refresh rate than it can display.

The frequency error message comes from the monitor, not from the PC.

I have a i7 860 desktop (8 gb ram) which tends to freeze on one of the data applications that I run. Using the 'performance monitor' I discovered that the freeze occurs when the 'frequency' goes above 100%. At no point does the cpu utilization exceed 15%.

Several calls to the vendor have failed to resolve the issue or even educate me.

The question I have is what is this 'frequency' and two, why does it cause the application to freeze while the 8 cores are relaxing ?
Any insight is most appreciated and thanks.

A:CPU Frequency What is it?

“% 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.

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'm just guessing.

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?

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.,K=9272,Sxi=6,RESTART,DTree=OBJ(2132) Click on processor specs, followed by your type of cpu.

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.

- Veliremus

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

Hello All. First post. New/old guy learning. I'm about to do my first build (with some assistance) using an Abit Fatal1ty board, AMD 64 X2, a powercolor video card (upgradable when I have more $). I have questions about memory. I'm looking at 2Gb dual channel, and wondering if I am understanding The PC3200 terminology correctly. I get that this is the bandwidth at which everything operates. There seem to be many different sticks of memory at different bandwiths out there. My question is: What would be effect be, on the system listed above, of using sticks of memory with a higher bandwidth, PC 4000 or above? From what I've read, it would be like underclocking the memory(?).
I am after reliablility more than super speed, as my primary objective is musically oriented.... Any information that might assist me on this journey would be appreciated.....

A:Understanding RAM frequency?

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.

A:core frequency?

Core frequency is the clock frequency of your CPU or GPU (memory, both system and videocard, usually runs at its own clock frequency).

As for the two videocards, you can find detailed specs on nVidia's website and just compare them. Differences will probably be in clock speeds, number of shaders/pipelines, and things like that.

Stupid question perhaps:

Just built my first custom PC a week ago, running great. But the memory I bought (512Mb Kingston DDR pc2700) says 333Mhz on the pkg, however the default setting or whatever is 266mhz. Is it perfectly safe for me to up the memory frequency to 333mhz in the BIOS or am I confusing that with something else?

A:Memory frequency....

Congrats on your first pc build. Glad to hear everything's running fine.

The memory frequency and cpu frequency are 2 different frequencies.
The PC2700 memory is rated to run up to 333mhz (166mhz x2)
but the default frequency in the bios is 266mhz (133 x2) since the default FSB is 133MHz and your cpu/memory ratio is 1:1.

You most certainly should be able to run your memory at 333mhz as long as your motherboard bios has that option.

There are 2 ways for you to overclock your memory through your bios. The first and most common way is for you to increase your FSB to 166mhz w/ a cpu/memory ratio of 1:1.

There also might be an option in your bios that gives you a cpu/memory ratio of 3:4 or 4:5.

Before you start overclocking your cpu and memory, you might want to check out www.overclockers.com and do some research or ask a few questions. We will be most willing to help you get started.

I just had a power blackout a few minutes ago and my computer shut off. I turn my computer back on when the citie's power comes back on, and my screen has a lot of white squares that keep flashing. Then the monitor goes black and I get a message saying that the frequency is too high. The message is from the monitor, not the computer; I never even get into windows. Drivers are updated, RAM, LCD, CPU, PSU, GPU, HDD, and everything have been tested on a different setup, and they all work flawlessly. So are the visual artifacts due to a shorted MB?

A:Video Frequency

Have you tried hitting F5/F8 and try booting into safe mode and selecting VGA mode?

if you can then connect another monitor to see if it is your Mainboard or graphics Card.

If you get into Vga mode then you can check adapter refresh frequency and lower it.

A:restarting frequency

it may be because your hardware has become quite old & even compatibility issues. check if the card works on other PC good.also did this happen the first you installed the card,if not boot with the integrated card, then, in device manager check for a warning yellow blip for the Nvidia drivers. if there is one, you need to update your card drivers.

Why does my RAM work at cca 320Mhz instead of 800?
Does anyone know?

A:Why is my RAM working on such low frequency?

It looks like that is the default setting. Is this an OEM or custom build PC? What is the make/model of the RAM? Can you download CPU-Z and post a screen shot of the SPD tab of the slots the RAM or in.

With RAM, there is a multiplier of 2, so in reality your RAM speed is/should be around 666 mhz. As you see mine, I'm using my RAM in XMP mode and it showing at 1200 mhz but with the mulitplier it's running at 2400 mhz. You can confirm this in your BIOS.

Most modern RAM stock/default speeds are 800 mhz and you have to adjust (essentially over clock) the RAM in the BIOS to the correct or desired speeds.

Apparently, according to my step-mom, DDR2 RAM is produced in different frequencies. How can I tell what Frequency my RAM is, in my PC, so I can buy some more that works with my PC?



A:Question: RAM Frequency?

Go to crucial's site and input your system. It will show all compatible ram.

Another way is to open the case and look. Every ram chip I have seen will have the speed and required voltage on a sticker attached to the ram.
