I haven't done this in a couple of years and am kind of hazy on it. I recently bought a Mach Speed V2DP motherboard, AMD Sempron 2400+ Socket A Thoroughbred processor, and 512 MB of Kingston PC2700 DDR Ram (333 Mhz, or 266). The board is rated for 200/266/333 FSB. As you may have guessed, I'm not building a state-of-the-art system, but trying to economically get a few more years of life out of my old 450 MHz, P2 system. For front side bus frequency setting I am given a choice of 100 MHz, 133 MHz (default), or 166 MHz. I've been researching, but haven't been able to find crystal clear (which I need) instructions as to how to arrive at the correct setting. I would appreciate any input on this subject, and feel free to include the math behind the choice.

Oh, yes - this processor is rated at 1.67 GHz, if I am to believe what I've been told.

Your FSB for that processor should be 333MHz. Since the chip performs two calculations per clock cycle your Bios FSB setting is half of 333 or 166.
