    Second I am fixing my Brother's Computer. Here is what I got confused.
    Here how it started. He said his MB died; he will ship me the computer and I can
    replaced the MB and save his Data AKA Porn :lol: . I said ok no Bigge. I bough the MB
    for TIME saving. :hmm: So got him an Asus P4P800-VM MB
    Upon my diagnostic I found out; his ECS MB is GOOD :w00t:; His retail P4 prescott 3.2 is BAD :confused:
    I crossed check with known Good CPU. Any rate it getting replaced.:)
    He have 2 OCZ PC3200 512 a Modules. Running in a Dual Mode.
    Mean while I installed my spare CPU which is P4 2.6 Gig 800FSB.
    After installing every thing like OS and Benchmark programs; I have notice some thing real odd
    3D mark see FSB as a 200MHZ FSB

    Asus WebSite where they compare the MB its says it only supports 533/400

    When you pull MB specification it says it can support 800/533/400.

    I though may be 3D mark is goofy so I ran program on my computer.
    Its says I am running 800 FSB

    My Dell have 875Chipset; with PC3200 Memory/ P4 with 800FSB.

    So guys I am so confused now. It making no sense.
    I use think in P4 with 800FSB memory bus is quad-pumped. The real frequencies are 100/133/200 MHz; in actual data pahses.

    the real FSB of the chip is 200MHz. Intel quad-pumps it (2 instructions per up and down clock) for an effective 800MHz.

    Do yourself a favor and just replace the ECS mobo now.

    the P4P is a 848 chipset, if I remember correctly, so 533FSB is it's max, I think.
