I am constructing my first computer from scratch


Everything is going good, however the computer/bios is registering the processor as 2.5 or 2.4 ghz instead of what it's suppose to be (3.0ghz).

I did a little search on the internet. Most of them suggested to adjust the motherboard's front bus. Now, i don't have a faulkin clue where to start. A bus to me is a big yellow vehicle with stop a arm


How do i get the computer to read the processor as the real speed of 3.0 ghz?

TIA

When you first turn the PC on you will see the BIOS posting(black screen with lots of text), while it is doing this you should be able to tap either the delete key or F1 key. Hit it a few times and it should take you into the BIOS. Once in there, all you should have to do is go to the menu for CPU speed and choose the 3.0Ghz or 3000Mhz option.

What motherboard do you have?

The problem is that the bus is too long and therefore can't operate at the full 3.0ghz. It just scales back to 2.4 or 2.5ghz. You'll need to contact the motherboard manufacturer and request a "short bus"...they'll know exactly what you're talking about.

Beany-

You messin' with me??
Although I did ride the "short bus" and/or "retard racer", you think the motherboard MANUFACTURE will replace my motherboard with a yellow short bus motherboard? Will they need a doctor documentation that I qualify for a yellow short bus board??

Hah, I'm sure that after they talk to you over the phone that no dr documentation will be needed.
