Hi there! I've used the jumpers on my new Asus A7V133 mobo to run the CPU at 10x multiplier, 133mhz fsb, 1.85 volts.

When I boot, the mobo sees the Athlon as only 1000Mhz (not 1.33Ghz)

The mobo manual, I noticed, says it supports up to 1250Mhz (12.5x100).

Is there a keen reason why the PCU is still running at 100mhz fsb?

Does any of this also rely on unlocking the multiplier - something I'd rather not do unless I need to?

Thanks!

Do you have the FSB set at 133 and multilier at 10? That would give you your 1.33. That's if you have unlocked you cpu. You say you have a 1.1gig cpu right? If so you have to unlock it to get your desired results.
