    I try to download and install the "PowerNow" driver, but that doesn't work. PowerNow Dashboard can't run because it can't detect the CPU is a mobo.
    I went to mod a little further today. Pin mod to have the CPU running at 8.5 X 200. It is crunching Prim95 for the past 3 hrs and still doing so without any problem so far.
    The website link on my previous post have some error I think (well in my case). The 166Mhz and 200MHz FSB mod is the same. Asus PC probe and CPUMSR report that the FSB is 200 whether the mod is 166 or 200.
    CPU temperature is between 40~43 Celcius and mobo temp is about 5 degree lower. The mobo is out in an open air.
    So far I am happy with the speed and temp.

    According to the link you provided, the speed you are running at is 3400 Mhz, correct? This means your overclocking the cpu. Are you still running the cpu at these setting? If so have you experienced any problems with heat or anything else? or are you running just fine with out problems?
    Thanks.

    I don't think I run the chip at 3.4Ghz. 8.5x200 ~ 1.7Ghz which is still below the processor spec. I run Prime95 torture test once for more than 24 hrs straight without problem.
    The system has not been install in the car yet. I am just use it for testing software/setting and other stuff that will be going to the car. So far everythign is working fine

    I see what you mean now, I went to the link you provided and put 8.5 x Systembus which is 17 x FSB and was getting 3.4Ghz. My mistake. I'll have to try this on my board and hope very thing goes fine. Thanks.

    do you guys know how a fsb actually works? the default fsb for the mobile processors is 133 mhz. the chips with the Thoroughbred core also ran at 133 mhz. old bartons run at 166, newer bartons run at 200mhz. all of you are probably wondering what the **** i am smoking.

    okay kiddiepoos gather around and let me tell you a little story about amd and intel. a long long time ago (~1998 something like that idk) intel came out with this really scary thing called rdram ... or rambus which blew ***, but at the time it was blowing amd's *** so amd came out with a bus that was double data rate (DDR) pretty much what it did was it used both the leading edge and the trailing edge of the fsb to carry data, while intel's only used the front. in wraps amd still uses this. so the fsb rating you see on a proc or a chipset is actually double that of the rate that the clock is actually going (or how the motherboard sees it as going)

    so using what we have learned today in general when your motherboard reports an fsb of 133, your data is actually moving at 266.

    additional, the dip switches in the upper right hand corner of your mobo allow you to change your fsb to 166 (or to 100 or 133 for that matter. check in your mobo manual settings are in there) without shorting the pins on your cpu. I"ve been looking around and many people seem to be saying about how you can set those dip switches to both auto and manual (not at the same time) thus allowing these options in the bios. here is what matrix was playing with. http://www.ocinside.de/html/workshop...md_pinmod.html
    don't worry i know i usually don't make much sense

    I will double check with Asus Probe to see what is the exactly Mhz the processor running when I get home.

    For those who interest
    Asus PC Probe reports:
    External Clock 200 MHz
    Max speed 2200 MHz
    Current Speed 1700 MHz

    CPU MSR Report
    Voltage: Current = Startup = Max = 1.450V
    Multiplier: Current = Startup = 8.5x, Max = 14.0x
    Current Core Speed 1721 MHz

    Both program identify the processor as AMD Athlon MP 2200+

    I'm trying to follow the thread.
    That driver that is listed on the AMD website is for Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0 & Windows 2000 Versions.

    From reading how the XP-M reacts to the Windows XP's Power Options, it adjusts based on the power settings. Did you try setting the power settings to Minimal Power Management and then benchmarking the speed?

    I hope I am following correctly.
