Just purchased a Sempron 2800+ from Fry's it came bundled with an ECS Elite Group KT600-A Motherboard. On boot-up it reports the CPU as an Athlon XP+ speed 1200 Mhz. Any suggestions appreciated.

You will need to enter the bios and change the FSB speed to 166 MHz.

It is set at 100 X 12 = 1.2 GHz right now.

166 X 12 = 2.0 GHz is the proper setting.

The motherboard manual will have more information on this.
