    SN41G2 V3 + Barton 3200+ => detected as 1100 MHz (100x11)

    Hello,

    I've just bought the following configuration :
    - Shuttle SN41G2V3
    - AMD Barton 3200+
    - 2 Memory units PC3200 from Corsair Value Select (1Go each)
    - 1 AGP Card (Ati Radeon 9600 Pro 256 Mo)

    The problem is that the Barton 3200+ is detected as CPU 1100 Mhz only (100x11) instead of (200x11).
    I have flashed the bios with the latest bios firmware (FN41US0R) from Shuttle's site, and resetted the cmos etc.
    After loading optimal settings in the BIOS, I set the FSB to 200 Mhz.
    But then when the PC boots, the BIOS displays only 1100 MHz, and in windows cpu-z1.exe says it's a Barton, running with FSB 99.91 MHz and factor 11.

    I don't understand, it seems like my Barton 3200+ is running at half the speed it should run at ! Is there a bug in this BIOS (FN41US0R) ? Does anyone have an idea to help me ?

    Well known problem with a lot of the SN41's and SN45's I am afraid . They used the same boards used appart from onboard GFX. Problem in the CPU detection routines.

    Not really sure of a propper solution as I just gave up. BIOS updates do not seem to help .
