    Hi all,
    I'm trying to make sure I've got my PC running at it's optimum settings for when I try T2:Extreme HD version. The motherboard is an MSI 845PE Max2 which supports DDR333 although I think the RAM is DDR2700. It says it's 533FSB and the CPU is a P4 2.4B which it says is 533MHz system bus. What BIOS settings should I have to get the optimum (non overclocked) performance. My FSB in the Bios is set to 133Mhz, that seems a bit low to me, where does this 533Mhz come into it? I can't see anything to do with multipliers in the BIOS but lot's of places I've looked at regarding overclocking always seem to mention the multiplier, as I say I don't know where that is in the BIOS so I guess I'll have to leave it as it is.

    Thanks for any help

    Cheers
    Andy

    I've just had a look at my settings and my CPU FSB is set at 133. My chip is a P4 2.53 Mhz (533) and in the BIOS it says -
    CPU Operating Speed 2533 (133x19)
    My motherboard is not the same as yours but I assume they all set up with the same multipliers etc
