Hi.. I have 2 identical motherboard model Chaintech CT-6LTM

Have been to the chaintech site and downloaded the latest BIOS upgrade and run it, but it will only recognise 233,266,300,333,366,400,466 processors. The P11 350mhz processor I am trying to install only shows up as a 233 MMX.

If I put a Celeron 333 into all I can get it to do is display =MMX 250 & then lock up

Both M/B's do the same, does anyone have any ideas of why this is happening

The LX chipset only supports officially 66MHZ fsb and unofficially the 75 and 83MHZ fsb, the P2 350 needs 100 MHZ fsb. So 3.5X66MHZ=233MHZ, 3.5X100MHZ=350MHZ. Adjust the jumpers for 5X66MHZ for Celeron 333MHZ. A Celeron 250MHZ with a locked multiplier equals out to 5X50MHZ.

Since it's jumperless you have to setup the FSB in the bios.
