AMD Athlon 1600+


I have a AMD athlon XP 1600+ but set up in BIOS to run @ 1050 for some reason.. Can i safely put it to run at 1400 which is it's default speed? And why is it called 1600+ if it can up to 1400 (unless overclocked)?
Thanks for any help!

Of course. If this is a new chip the bios usually doesn't do clock speed detection. My T-bird 1.2 Abit board clocked the chip at 500Mhz by default. My buddies Iwill board and 1.4, 800. It also happens if the board gets BIOS set to default values, which can happen really easily if something flaky happens.

The 1600 rating vs. its true 1.4Ghz clock is AMD comparing the XP family to an equally upclocked T-bird of the previous generation. They were having a tough time competing with Intel on raw clock so they created that pitiful markitecture scheme, but hey its still a better and cheaper chip!

Cheers,

Thanks, I put it @ 1400 and it's humming away nicely, if i could just get a couple of extra fans now
The CPU temperature (as reported by BIOS hardware monitor) is always around 60 C which i beleive corresponds to about 127 F. Is this bearable or should get a fridge to house my box?
Thanks again!

That is kinda hot, especially for an XP... My T-Bird gets a little flaky around there, but then I found that the chip usually cooks up quite a bit at boot (beats me as to why).

I ran open box for quite some time, but eventually just stopped caring. If you're paranoid about heat, depending on board (most of them), you can get lmsensors to work and keep track of heat from Linux.

Cheers,

The "supported" section might be complete garbage. Remember that coders typically hate HTML. Download the newest package and grep through the source for your board info, best way to tell. The sensor chipset is probably the same as in the last few versions of the Socket A board so its almost definately supported.

Luck,

I2C lm_sensors trouble

I went on and tried to install lm_sensors. I ran make world, make install, depmod -a (which spat out a bunch of "depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.17/misc/somefile" ) and then i ran prog/mkdev/mkdev.sh
and after prog/detect/sensors-detect which kindly detected my VIA motherboard and my GeForce and kindly asked me to load the correct modules which i kindly accepted BUT. Module loading fails... This is what the script spits out and i can't understand it... So please help me fix this:
Code:
/lib/modules/2.4.17/misc/i2c-viapro.o: unresolved symbol i2c_del_adapter_R97e1c952
/lib/modules/2.4.17/misc/i2c-viapro.o: unresolved symbol i2c_add_adapter_Rd50a523b
/lib/modules/2.4.17/misc/i2c-viapro.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.17/misc/i2c-viapro.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.17/misc/i2c-viapro.o: insmod i2c-viapro failed
Loading failed ()... skipping.
What are unresolved symbols and how do i get these modules to load? I don't want to patch my kernel tree but have it compiled as modules..
A big thanks to everyone who can help me out!
