Not really. Both Windows and Linux report the speed of my processor (754 Sempron 2800) at 7-10 Ghz. I am not overclocking at all. Everest shows the fsb fluctuating around 1300 Mhz.

The motherboard is a Biostar T6100, I've tried all of the available versions of the BIOS. I am not using the Overclocking Navigator that is built into this board...in fact, I am running "optimized defaults".

The system seems stable now (I had some ram issues initially). I just got the motherboard, and I'm thinking about rma-ing or returning it.

I've had the proc for a while. It's been sitting in a dead motherbaord for a few months now, but it was a trooper right up to the day that the motherboard died.

Could the problem be the proc?

Is it really a problem? The system hasn't crashed once.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just to prove that I'm not making this up:

The picture is fine. The 1608.5MHz you're getting is the total speed, that's a result of 201Mhz FSB x 8x multiplier. I don't know if that's what you asked... Kinda difficult to make out what really your problem is, other than wrong identification by System properties... I'd definitely trust CpuZ on this one.

It is no problem, But if you want it to say the correct speed i would say putting a fresh copy of windows on..or whatever you use

It was a problem with the motherboard that showed up in weird ways. The system would seem ok, but video was always choppy. I'm returning the motherboard.

Mobo is botched no doubt. Its reporting wrong cpu speeds, which is unacceptable. (SMbus issue?) System Managment Bus is what I think is bad on it

http://www.smbus.org/specs/

" Defines a standard BIOS interface to the System Management Bus. It is designed to abstract the hardware implementation of the SMBus and expose it in a standardized way to higher layers of software. This specification was posted on 15-February-1995. "

I would send it back aswell. RMA time.
