Interested in knowing steps for configuring FSB speed of K7 Triton Motherboard

Hi Everyone:

          I am interested in any instructions or links which illustrate how to manually configure the FSB speed of a K7 Triton Motherboard.  Upon visual inspection of the motherboard, I see the following:  A blue dip switch set to OFF.  And, for SW1 I see the following imprinted onto the motherboard:  One area is labeled CPU Clock 100MHz ON and the second area is CPU Clock Auto OFF.  Based upon this information, I assume since the dip switch is set to OFF, the motherboard automatically configures the FSB selections (133, 166, 200, etc.) without any intervention on the part of the user.  I did, however, find a row of pins with a couple of jumpers on them, but, they are labeled as F_Audio and do not appear germane to this question.  Interesting, I found an area imprinted on the motherboard for the CMOS.  For example, 1-2 to Clear CMOS and 2-3 for Normal (default).  However, I never saw any pins with jumpers which correspond to this schematic on the motherboard.  

         The motherboard is a Gigabyte board and identified as K7 Triton.  Any assistance regarding this post will be appreciated.  Perhaps a link which as the schematic to this board will help shed some light on the issues mentioned within this post.

          I look forward to hearing from everyone.

         Thank you

         George

K7 Triton is  series name. You need to know the exact Gigabyte motherboard model name similar to 7vaxp.  

For some of the series, manual jumper configuration is not available.  

Get the exact model name and find a manual here:

Hi There:

         Thanks so much for the prompt reply.  The model name is as follows:  7VT600.  Could you check on this for me?

Look here for the manual. You didn't give any numbers.

Hi There:

          Thanks so much for the quick responses.  Incidentally, based upon the model information provided, does it look like manual configuration of the FSB of the motherboard will be an option here or will it be auto-configured?

Thank you much.    : )

That was fast. I was still poking around.    : D

ROFL.  Still cross posting.

I haven't read it yet, but you will probably need to set the jumper to the 100 setting, then tweak it in the BIOS. I will try to look at the manual later and get back with you tomprrow, if you still need help.

Looks like it didn't copy/paste very well, but it is in the BIOS section of the manual. I DL'ed the 7vt600_rz file.

WARNING!The "JP1" must set to "Auto" when you are using
FSB 266/333/400MHz CPU.

100MHz : Fix FSB 200MHz CPU

Looks like it is under "Frequency/Voltage Control"

FCPU Host Clock Control
Note: If system hangs up before enter CMOS setup utility, wait for 20 sec for times out reboot . When time out occur, system will reset and run at CPU default Host clock at next boot.

Disable Disable CPU Host Clock Control.(Default value)
Enable Enable CPU Host Clock Control. <probably needs to be ENABLED to play with the FSB>

FCPU Host Frequency (MHz) (By switch SW1)

100     Set CPU Host Clock to 100MHz~132MHz.
133     Set CPU Host Clock to 133MHz~165MHz.
166     Set CPU Host Clock to 166MHz~200MHz.
200     Set CPU Host Clock to 200MHz~254MHz.

Auto : Support FSB 266/333/400 MHz CPU


So I think that the SW1 is to tell the MOBO what range the FSB is <under 200/over 200>, and the BIOS is where you play with the setting.

If you do OC it, you might want to lock the PCI/AGP to 33/66, to help keep it stable at first.
