P4 Peed settings problem
Posted on 2004-08-30
My brandnew shuttle XPC ST62K equipped with a 2800mhz P4 1gb L2 cache, 800 mhz FSB has problems to accept it as a 14 x 200 mhz = 2.8GHz speed cpu.
If the bios is set to auto it will accept it as such the first time it boots, but the second time it is reset to 166 x 14 = 2,32 GHz.
If it is manually set to FSB 200 then it will see it as 14 x200, but again, only at 1st boot.
The cpu is correctly described as a 2,8 mhz (also in Sisoft Sandra) but sometimes running @2.32 other occasions @ 2,80 GHz.
Nor mainboard, nor BIOS have an option to det the multiplier
The bios is dated feb 27th and there has been no revision or update since.
The CPU is identified by Intel as being the one described.
Shuttle blames Intel, Intel blames Shuttle as usual....
Has anyone experienced similar trouble or knows a solution?
