Devil is your CPU an AMD Athlon XP 2800 + *333 FSB* Barton (2.08 GHz) with AMD Heat Sink Fan? It certainly sounds like it.

At default clock speeds it should be 166MHz with a multiplier of 12.5.

The AMD AthlonXP 3200+ Barton is the only processor with a 400MHz fsb speed.

Like my System 1 processor.

i can change the multiplier up to 15 in my system , and for kangaroo, the processor came stock at 333mhz. i overcloked it to obtain a 400mhz fsb to coincide with my memory which is ddr400, when i put my new heatsink on this week i'll post the serial numbers on the cpu and you people can let me know if its locked or not...

thanks,
ryan
