Default Set bios for pc2700

HI. I have an asus a7s333 mobo. It says I can use either pc2100 or pc2700. I am using 512mb pc2700. When checking with SIS Sandra it says I am running at 266. I thought the spd would automatically set for 333. I guess it doesn't. Anyone can give me an idea how to set this up in the bios? I have an xp2200 cpu. Bios cpu/pci freq is set at 133/33. Cpu freq is now (default I guess) at 13.5. Thanks

Will answer my own post From what I've been reading, my cpu,XP2200, only has a front bus speed of 266. XP2700 is the first of the line with a front bus speed of 333. So I guess I've just wasted money buying pc2700 DDR333 Ram. I thought that if the mobo supported DDR333, that's what I should use. I have noticed some system stats from other members, tho, who are running XP1700, XP1800, etc. cpus with pc2700. Is there some hidden advantage to this? I Guess I don't know all I need to know about this stuff

just change your memory clock in the BIOS to 166 and that will up the memory to 333mhz. If it doesn't work, change the settings back...its worth a try.
