Hello guys, im really getting crazy with the processor i bought, and want some help to findout if i bought an remarked proc.

My system cant work at its "default speed" its an Athlon XP 2000+. If i put it working at 133x12.5,1.65V it becomes really unstable and hard-reboot itself. It can work at 133x12,1.65V or 120(or less)x12.5,1.65V, so i got at Max an Athlon XP 1880.

I used this board (ASUS A7V8X), really fine with my older processor for a year, An Athlon XP 1700+ (that im using at an ASUS A7N266 now).

The temperatures are the following:

with my old 1700+ it was:

38º CPU Idle
39º Socket
22º Case

and with 2000+ it is:

53º CPU Idle
56º Socket
23º Case

after reading this http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/c...ay/2...0503024652.html' ">http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/c...ay/20030503024652.html
i started thinking that i got an remarked processor, but i cant see the "jumpers" bkz there are "guarantee sticks" everywhere on my processor. Is there any software capable to tell me the true thing i got in my hand?

It's a possibility. It's also possible that your board is undervolting the chip, though (many low-end Athlon XPs are quite cooperative about this-- my 1700+ would run at stock speed with 1.45v-- but plenty of XPs aren't). Try raising the voltage to 1.7v.

look... it says that my original multiplier is really 12, instead of 12.5 x P....
