  Problems getting D850EMV with 2.53 proc to run at 533 
 Date Written

i just built this system. It sees the 2.53 chip and sez it can run at 533 but it doesn't! It runs as a 1.9 at 400. I have verified at least 3x that it has the latest BIOS, the latest chipset (850E) drivers, and pc800-40 Rdram. It uses winxp pro. The only other card is a soundblaster audigy. I'm perplexed as what to do next. The board is running flawlessly..but it is functioning as a 1.9ghz with a 400 FSB.

Where did you buy the board? Do you have the original box?

The reason I ask is that I believe you may have the wrong board. There is no D850EMV. Intel makes a D850MV, and a D850EMV*2*. If someone sold it to you saying it was a D850EMV, such a board does not exist.

I think you might have a D850MV. You should try to return it in exchange for an 850EMV2. If you want to check, the actual model of the board is silk-screened on the PCB just beside the IDE connectors.

The board was bought from a local distributer who got the mobos from California. Your comments certainly could explain what's going on. I will check the actual board nomenclature and serial numbers. I will definitely follow through if it turns out to be true.!

I can't see any other explanation. There's simply no way to run an Intel board at the wrong speed, so it's not like there's a setting you've missed. The only reason why it wouldn't be running at 533MHz is that it CAN'T run at 533MHz (ie, it's a D850MV).

Good luck.
