Today is May the 27th and I think the summer has finally arrived here as its about 28 degrees outside, poor Scruffy was seeking some shelter under the table and chairs in the garden it was so hot.

Shuttle XPC-SK41G with XP2600+

Posted by Paul Farrow - Under: Hardware

Upgraded my little old Shuttle XPC-SK41G from an AMD Duron 1.3ghz to an XP 2600+ and couldnt get the speed up above 1150mhz after much digging about realised that the FSB is set to 100mhz by a jumper,

 it is jumper JP2, you need to remove it and the FSB then runs at 133mhz and got a speed of 1536mhz out of the new chip.  The jumper is located at the rear left, mine had a red jumper on it !!

Shame these old shuttles dont have 333mhz FSB then would get even more speed out of them ah well, when I completely upgrade the PC….
