    ok so I know this has been covered many times but I looked for a long time and can't find the thread for it. so my friend put a comp together with a Leadtek NCR18D PRo and a 2400+ thoroghbred. Now I knew that you needed to do some special stuff for the motherboard to run the processor to full potential but he didn't ask me before he put the comp together. I read somewhere that you have to flash the bios to get the true performance. if anyone can help please do I know it's been covered but I can't find the thread to talk about it...

    The board is probably defaulting to 100fsb. With a multiplier of 15x that gives 15x100 = 1500 which is the approx clock speed of an 1800+
    Enter the bios at startup and there should be a FSB option in there somewhere. Change that to 133 and all should be good :)

    the core speed of the processor is directly affected by it's frontside bus (fsb) and multiplier.

    the 2400+ is 15x133 = 2ghz

    the fsb increase should be all you need to do it get the right clock speed out of the processor
