A Reader Asks: MSI K7N2-L Overclocking - A Reader Asks: MSI K7N2-L Overclocking

A Reader Asks...

Q:I'm having the MSI K7N2-L Delta Series mainboard with the AMD Athlon XP 2800+ Barton FSB333 processor. I am puzzled over the following:

The MSI K7N2-L Delta Series Nvidia nforce2 Chipset (fsb400) MS-6570, in bios setup, under Advanced Chipset Features, there is a setting named CPU INTERFACE. The CPU INTERFACE, this settings allows you to select the CPU/FSB parameters. The settings are: Normal, High Performance. When High Performance is selected, the system will use overclocked CPU/FSB parameters.

My question is, the AMD Athlon XP 2800+ Barton FSB333 is a locked (multiplier) processor. By selecting High Performance in CPU Interface, can the K7N2-L Motherboard overclock the CPU/FSB parameters? How does the K7N2-L system do it?

A: By setting the "CPU INTERFACE" to "High Performance", the MSI K7N2-L motherboard allows you to manually adjust the FSB that your system is running at (in your case 333 MHz). To learn how to overclock your CPU and motherboard manually, check out this Beginners Guide to Overclocking, it will definitely help. :) Please note though that while there are CPU clock multiplier options, changing the value will do nothing till you physically unlocked the processor.
