I have a new Barebones shuttle FN27V10 and an AMD Athlon 64 FX-62. I installed it and have the default bios settings and it appears to be working but not as well as I expected. Does anyone know the correct settings for the bios? Also, I am looking for overclocking software for benchmarking.

Thanx

Forgot:

Try the "Best" and/or "Optimal" settings in the BIOS.

The best speed tweaks are:
The FSB, and the memory timings.

Coral47,

Thank you for the quick response regarding this issue. I have been unable to find the optimal setting for this cpu. Everytime I make any change in the bios, it appears that they didn't take any affect. Do you know what the optimal settings are for this CPU?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I have not had a chance to play with one myself, but the default setting should be:
FSB - 200MHz
Multiplyer - 14x
Core Voltage - between 1.35v and 1.40v

This page has some nice info. Don't forget to check the links at the bottom.

One other thing:
the dual-core cpus usually only run on one chip until it needs the second one for something. So it might look like it is "working, but not as well as I expected". You will probably only notice the difference when you are making the system work under a load, and the programs are not tripping over each other for cpu cycles.

Run the benchmarks, and compare them with the one listed on the site.

I tried changing both the fsb and the multiplyer and neither made any difference in speed. Any ideas?

Not at the moment. <scratching head>

Do you mean that the benchmark results from the "stock" settings are the same as the results you get when you overclock?

What kind of ram and video card, and HD are you using?
