Don't ask how to over-clock.

Hi all,

I am trying to use an AMD Athlon XP Mobile 2800+ (Barton AXMA2800FKT4C, running at 266 MHz FSB, 2133 MHz, multiplicator 16, believe me that Barton REALLY runs at 133/266 MHz FSB) on my MSI KM2M Combo-L (MS-6738, latest BIOS version).

It does run well except it's not recognized by the BIOS (which I had kind of expected). However, unfortunately the BIOS seems to run all "unknown" processors at a 6x multiplier and thus the processor only runs at 800 MHz. The KM2M's BIOS unfortunately doesn't allow to manually change the multiplier... :roll:

Does anyone know of any way to either hack the BIOS to set the correct 16x multiplier or any Windows based software that would allow to do the same during runtime (which *should* be possible, stuff like that existed back in K6-2 times). I should add it's an Award/Phoenix 6.0 BIOS.

Thanks to you all for your help in advance!!

Kind regards
Christian
