That'd be the Athlon64 3500? I believe that's on the 939 setup. Anyways, I don't think it's 3.5ghz, it's actually something lower in terms of that, but the more clocks per cycle make them faster comparitively or somesuch. Anyways, i was just hoping to clear it up for someone who reads this who can check, incase there was a bit of confusion.

ps - have you changed these settings and are worried you screwed something up and forgotten the original? if so, there should be a restore to default button around there somewhere.

jcbray is right. The fastest Athlon on the market is a 2.6GHz Athlon FX-55. The Athlon 64 3500+ is really only 2.2GHz. As for the original poster's question. What exactly is the problem? Are you trying to over clock?

mmh, if you are not sure I guess you should leave it in the "Auto detect" setting... does your bios have one? they usually do and it is the default one.
