Default Gigabyte Ga-7zx-h (rev 5.1)

Hi Guys,

I read up on one of the motherboards i have GA-7ZX-H (rev 5.1)
i've found out that this board takes maximum cpu = AMD AthlonXP 2100+(.18u) 266fsb

Cpu support list :-

The features are here:-

So my question is how do i set up this board to take such cpu (266fsb) because its currently set to take 200fsb by default.

Any help will be much appreciated thanks!!

Well I had this problem. You can either move the pin crap, (I think that's what it's called.. i forgot ;x lol) on your motherboard or you can push F10 to get in the BIOS and look for a setting there.

Sometimes, the motherboard will automatically detect things like that.

There should be a software setting in your Bios for the FSB. Page 14 of the Manual for that Mobo has a basic diagram on how to set the pins to 133Mhz instead of 100 mhz so you'll fire @266Mhz.
