View Full Version : CPU Ratio Jumpers
09-04-2000, 09:11 PM
I have a new jetway coppermine 370 or slot one 133side bus moth board. I want to install a 800coppermine slot370 133bus processor and the moth board manual only goes to a 600mhz to set the cpu ratio jumpers. A 600 mhz coppermine133bus is 4.5x ratio. What ratio is a 800coppermine 133bus?

Well, 800/133 ~= 6, but you knew that. Bigger question is whether the motherboard will support that chip.
Recommend checking their web site for updated information.

You answered your own question. The motherboard only goes to 600 MHz, so making it use a 800 MHz CPU would be very unlikely without a BIOS upgrade, which I strongly advise against, since it's the easiest way I know of to turn your computer into an expensive, but interesting paperweight.
If you had everything...Where would you put it?
