The Motherboard is a 400MHzFSB board and the chip I believe operates at
2GHz. Am I right in thinking the multiple is 5???

The Bios for some reason wants to set it at 15 when I set the processor
speed to 2000MHZ. Cant understand this.

I've now set it to 5. Is this ok??

thanks

First, the FSB is DDR, so 400 MHz is actually clocked at 200 MHz. The
XP2400+ runs at 2000 MHz at 133 MHz (266 MHz DDR) FSB, which comes out
to a multiplier of 15x.

BTW, with a muliplier of 5x, your CPU is running at 665 MHz.
