    I just bought a AMD 6000+ Athlon, but it shows only 3ghz in windows and other third party system-info programs. After looking around in google for the solution i found that your suppose to change the CPU frequency. By default it was already set at 200 which is the minimum, the maximum you can put is 400. But if i put anything above 225 my computer doesn't start up properly. Putting the frequency to 225 increase the CPU to 3.25ghz but this is not enough!!!

    The 6000+ is supposed to run at 3Ghz.

    What were you hoping for?

    Hi the way it works is 200 is normal FSB and a 10 percent rise will give you 220,3.3ghz. Fine but above that you will need to give the CPU more power by upping the Voltage from 1.3 to 1.5 or so, try small increases. Most of these will not go above that. Remember that that CPU is125W or 89W, so that is a lot of heat, and when you increase the Voltage and FSB you will greatly increase the heat output.
    O'clockability varies batch to batch, but these are not the best. I have a 4800+ that does close to 3 gig, but I have also trashed more cpus than I care to remember. Skt939 rocked
