Clock Speed?

Hello,

I have a Athlon 1700XP @ 1.47Ghz (stock)
it runs at 133 bus speed it says in the BIOS,

My bro has a Athlon 2000XP @ Stock too,

His clock speed in the BIOS says 133 also,

When I looked on a site it says Athlon 2000XP runs Advanced 266MHz Front-Side Bus,

Why does it say 133 then?

When I rang up my mobo company they said my computer can handle up to a 2.2Ghz processor, but all the other processors only have Advanced 266MHz Front-Side Bus or 333Mhz ?!!

It lets me adjust the clock speed in the bios up to 266 if I wanted but doesn't this put loads more pressure on all the PCI and AGP slots?

OMG!!!
GOOD LUCK BRINING IT TO 266 lol
no mobo can handle that much
if ya bring it that much i reckon all your other components will die
if ya don have lock for it e.g pci,agp,etc..
just imagine your cpu runing at 11 * 266 = 2.9ghz

exactly like [CPK] said :)

in market speak... a 133mhz clock becomes 266mhz fsb (double data rate)

it SOUNDS higher hence people think its faster :)

just like intel and their QDR ie... 100mhz clock == 400mhz fsb

:)

your STOCK fsb clock should be 133 (or 166 or 200 depending on the cpu and also the motherboard and what it can handle)

anything above 133mhz == an overclock... and some components do not like an oc :)

if your motherboard does not allow you to lock your pci and agp clocks... I would be very careful how I oc the rig...
