    i just put in a new cpu,1gig celeron, and was wondering what i need to set the multyplier to. i thought it should go to 10 because the bus speed is 100 mhz but in the bios it wont goe above 8x any help would be great.

    i just looked up your motherboard it only supports up to a 800 celeron

    look for yourself

    Also... you can't change the multiplier. It's a safeguard from Intel to keep you from o/c'ing and from counterfeiting. They would rather you buy a new one instead of making your old one go faster... eh, go figure. I think yours is at 9.5. When you o/c on a board with an intel chipset you have to change the fsb to change the speed. So I take it you decided to upgrade instead of o/c? Wise choice if you don't want to risk losing the processor... but it seems it isn't being used anyway and you bought a new. At this point you might be better off o/c'ing with that 633 and then you can return the 1 Ghz... especially since it doesn't work on your board.

    Your multiplier should be at 10. 10 x 100 =1 gig

    heres my question, if the multiplier is locked internally it shouldn't matter what I set the multiplier at in the bios. that my a real dumb question but.... the reason I I choose to put a 1 gig celeron in is that the store I bought my computer at told me that it run with that chip in, I let them install it. one more thing, is there a utility that will tell what the cpu is running at. I have used a few and they said that it was running at 100fsb and stepping at 10.

    thank you all for your help. i went to wcpuid and ran it and it said that the internal clock was running at 1002.26mhz and bus speed is 100.23mhz and the multipier is 10. Thanks for you help

    Sorry... I had the impression it wasn't working and that was what you were trying to fix... and then read the thing about the 1 Ghz not being supported. Happy Holidays to you and yours and good luck in all your future computing... :)


    Brian... I also downloaded wcpuid. Nice program... thanks for the link. :D
